First thing to say is that booking is essential. We saw queues and people do not go for a quick snack. The quality of the beef is outstanding based on any comparison from around the world. I had the lomo (rare) first visit and the rib of beef second with fries and green salad. All excellent. I also recommend the... More

Very good experience. We had lunch in a busy Sunday. Had to wait for about 30 minutes but they offered glasses of sparking wine. Very good food and wine list. Service also way better than average. One of the best chorizos I had in BA!

This restaurant was highly recommended to us; I cannot say enough about the meal we had. Four of us had steak and the other two had salmon. When you order steak, you just get steak; we ordered a salad to share and it was plenty....the bread was to die for. We ended up going there the next night and it... More

We hadn't booked and were told it would be a 30min wait, we decided to wait. We were given a complimentary glass of champagne for the inconvenience and enjoyed watching the hustle and bustle of the restaurant. After about 10mins we were shown to our table and given fresh, hot bread and dips. All delicious! Our steak was just perfect,... More

First things first, the food. This is an excellent Parrilla no doubt. Although my steak wasn't as rare as I would like, or you would get in France, the meat is delicious. The sides and wine choice are of high quality too. Now...I personally wouldn't go here again if on holiday in BA simply due to the clientèle. Every table... More

We stayed at the great Abode B&B, about 5 blocks away and the manager of the B&B had this as his #1 restaurant in Buenos Aires. We arrived at 9PM on a week night and were so lucky to get a table for 4 with no wait. This is a locals place and for good reason. My wife and I... More

I didn't want to leave. I never wanted to eat again. The steak was perfectly cooked, chips delicious, salad and wine went perfectly. The place is very cosy too and waiters friendly

We absolutely loved everything about this restaurant. As soon as we arrived, and had only a 5 minute wait, they handed us a glass of champagne will we waited. The food was delicious, the service was great, we loved the interior design and signing our bottle of wine at the end of a meal to add to the decor!! One... More
