We stayed just around the corner from this place and almost missed it. Then on the last nigh we went in and were so glad! You can't miss with a good steak in a good B.A. restaurant, but this was different. The waiter recommended the T-bone (especially good today sir) and indeed it was, just perfect. I have to say...

Best meal in Buenos Aires, and one of the best we´d ever had. The steak as tender, cooked correctly and flavorful. The service was excellent and helped us even though we speak limited Spanish.

Great steakhouse. No reservation, but waited with a glass of bubbles while they made a table for us. Great Malbec selection and excellent steak and sides. A great night out. The butterflied sirloin was grilled to perfection. If you like steaks and Malbec, it's hard to beat. Highly recommended - reserve if you can, people were lining up at 1030h... More

The restaurant is located in palermo, so if you drive get ready to try to find a spot to park, it took 30 minutes and at the end got a place 4 blocks away. Now go to the food, it was very good but comparable with many others around, nothing outstanding, don't get me wrong the food is good but... More

We were recommended this place by our hotel as a non-touristy restaurant so thought we'd give it a go. Glad we did. Were allocated a table upstairs overlooking the main dining area. Ordered chorizio and black pudding for starters to share - was lovely although the black pudding was a bit rich for me (however my partner was pleased to... More

This place is old-school steak house all the way. The food was so wonderful, the portions were decent sized, the staff so friendly and incredibly attentive. The wine list was great. The chocolate mousse was the best I've had anywhere--ever! It had the most amazing texture and was so rich, just perfection. Don't miss this place!

Don Julio was recommended to us when we asked for a place to try some Argentinian steak. We ordered the thick cut sirloin and the ribs along with some french fries. It was totally fine, but definitely not mouth watering or a place I would rave about. It almost verged on bland. If you are looking for a delicious Argentinian... More

We had great service and steak here, and the atmosphere was buzzing, however we have been to more {authentic{ places in Buenos Aires that were better and cheaper. We couldnt help thinking that this place was full of expats, and wondered where all the locals went.

Everything here was excellent. The restaurant has a great atmosphere, and if you want to experience Argentine food at its best, this is the place to go. Maybe $25/person
