Traditional atmosphere, good service, good staff, excellent meat (we had ojo de bife), feels like you're in one of those old steak house. We have enjoyed it!

We were less than enchanted with our dinner here. Admittedly we hadn't booked and the main restaurant (entrance on the corner) was relatively full, but we resented being pushed away into a secondary dining room which was nearly empty and then waved to a table (adjacent to an already occupied table) right in the corner with, in one case, views...

We arrived here by accident while looking for another restaurant (that had permanently closed). We were a bit reluctant to go in at first as it does not look very inspiring from the outside (nor from the inside to be honest). Nevertheless, we couldn't have been more fortunate with our choice - we've had simply the best steaks we've had... More

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that stop you from going in and enjoying a great steak with attentive service.

I visited this restaurant with a group of 4 & for the most part it was an enjoyable experience. We all had steak & all reported it to be flavoursome. From my own point of view l found it to be of good flavour & texture but it didn't quite have the Wow factor l had been hoping for. I... More

We came back here after really enjoying it last time and were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and attentive, our streaks were delicious, as were the fries and rocket salad. We also really enjoyed being able to see our food being cooked.

I ate twice at el Establo Parrilla. The pasta on my first visit was unremarkable, but the pizza on my return visit was good. Both meals were part of a group of 12 people and they coped well with serving us all. Most of the group ate steaks and commented that they were of high quality and well cooked.

We looked for local restaurant where locals eat, and ran into this perrilla. This was my first experience with steak in Argentina, and I must say that the taste of this steak does not leave me. Good and cosy athmosphere. Price average.

Our tour guide recommended this restaurant, so we went to try it. The restaurant is a small but cozy place. We ordered steak, mine was the 1/2 bife the lomo, as I am used to eat well done, I order it; the waiter recommended me instead the bife de ojo "al punto" but I insisted in the bife the lomo... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
