We liked the old school vibe. Waiters are in uniform with arm bands. Mainly locals. Good beer and food. Low key and casual. The kind of place you can make you own. We will be going back!

When you fly clear to Argentina for a birthday dinner,it had better be darn good. And it was! This restaurant may lack ambiance but I find when the locals eat there that is a good sign. And they don't need all the ambiance fluff-just beef that melts in your mouth. hope to be there for another birthday

While not as famous as some of it's other BA brethren, we have been coming to this unassuming parilla for nearly a decade and have never been disappointed. Try the empanadas. They are even available for takeout which makes a perfect snack for plane or bus rides out of BA.

El Eatable is a good option for quality meat and Argentinian food. The prices are very reasonable - including the wine options. The service is excellent and non-Spanish speaking customers can get by pretty easily with the Spanish-only speaking staff. We ordered a caprese salad and two "bife de chorizo". The salad was ample - though don't expect Italy-quality mozzarella... More

This originally spanish tavern, serves excellent argentinian cuisine. Prices are market oriented and the service is friendly and tourist oriented. Apart from the traditional argentinian steaks and a good choice of wines, you can have a variety of food, which includes Sandwich and Pizzas.

The meat is good. Really good. But that is true for any half-decent restaurant in Baires. All the rest, however, is subpar to anywhere else in town. The waiters are an utter disaster, the sides were only barely ok, and any simple request ("can I have some Olive oil") was attended with a rude frown and a twenty-minute request penalty.... More

We had a dinner here last night and it was really bad. I had a meat who should be very nice if you read the reviews but it was really bad, the sides was purè without any flavour. My friends orderd pizza and obviously it was not good. At the they give us a bigger bill than what we should... More

I had dinner at El Establo. Excellent meat, as usual (not my first visit). However, the service is far from good. The wine list is poor. Side dishes as well not as good as the meat. Prices OK.

I have had several wonderful meals here, one block off Florida street. There is one menu selection that is enough beef for THREE. Great service and great food, I will be going here again.

Great local place. As others have said, a bit old, but great food, service, and atmosphere. Excellent menu and choices. Mostly older local people dining, but perhaps that is a very good sign. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal
