In town for meetings, we made dinner reservations at Don Julio on Guatemala (4699) in the hope that we would have an enjoyable evening. And, we did. We arrived at about 8:00, which is when the earliest reservations can be accepted. Of course, almost nobody was there at 8 because the place really only fills up in the 9 -... More

We ate here twice because it was so good. The focus is on meat, with the best steak that I have ever tasted. The portions are large, so we had the half steak, which means half thickness rather than half size. Even the half thickness was getting on for an inch thick. The T-bone and Rib eye steaks were cut...

Nicely decorated, with the bbq in the restaurant. Best argentinian steaks with an excellent wine list.

The best parrilla eaten in buenos aires by now!!!The only lack of this beautiful place is that you can't reserve so even during the week you'll be expected to wait for 1 hour(this is the reason of 4/5 stars).During this wait they offered us a cup of wine and as soon as we had the chance to seat in less...

If want to try classic Argentine steaks, this is the place for you. Excellent cuts and good side dishes, great wine selection. The tourists know the place so be prepared to wait for a table.

This was exactly what you want when you are in Buenos Aires, a classic, established steakhouse with a long history of providing quality meat. The steaks were incredible and the wine selection was vast. The service was extremely attentive and happy to provide advice (in English as well) on everything. I would definitely recommend.

My friend and I were staying in Palermo, and had been meaning to go to Don Julio our entire time in BA, and finally made it our last night. We got there late (even for dinner in BA) but there was still a little wait. We only waited for 5-10 minutes, and were seated upstairs. Ordered a bottle of wine... More

Originally had a group reservation that management cancelled as they are not big fans of groups so be aware. We ended up coming back for lunch and so happy we did. The bife de lomo and bife de chorizo were both flavor full and perfectly cooked. Also had the salad and proveleta cheese and both vet good. This was one... More

This steakhouse was recommended to us by a few local people (versus cabana las lilas - not as expensive and food is similar). The atmosphere and decor were very warm and rustic - love that. We were able to get a table without a reservation at 8:45, but it packed up soon after we arrived. The steak was not the... More
