Love this Place!

Loved it seven years ago and was thrilled to return and discover that if anything it was better then before! The bife de Ojo (ribeye) and bife de lomo are both fork tender. Half portions of beef are very large, and full portions would need to be shared. The salads, fried potatoes, creamed spinach... read more

Buenos Aires abounds with good restaurants. Puerto Madero, Palermo Chico and Costanera are chocked with great places. However, if you had to pick only one, then it would be El Establo. It is in a rather seedy part of town, and it lacks the glitz of the chic places. However, this is real Argentine food. It is a combination of... More

This is old-style BA - nothing about the place is different from what it would have been in the 50's, including in some cases maybe even the waiters. Not fancy, but the steaks are as good as any of the high end places in Puerto Madero or elsewhere where you pay twice as much. You'll see some other tourists because... More

The prices are high for the quality of the food and the service. The wine list is OK but nothing out of the ordinary. Order the T-bone and you won't be disappointed. Salads are also good and substantial. Avoid the sweetbreads, which are dry as a bone, also avoid the medallions of beef. We ate here two times (second time... More

We were were recommended to come here to dine and are very happy we were. It was only a few blocks from our hotel near La Plaza de San Martin in BA. The steaks, creamed spinach and other sides were absolutely delicious! I love this place because the food is so good, but more importantly because it's non-touristy and unpretentious,... More

Our plan was to arrive at the restaurant early but, due to flight delays from Iguazu, we arrived at 10pm. We decided that even though it was late, we still wanted to sample some Argentinian steak washed down with some Malbec. We were recommended to El Establo and it was not far from our hotel; we were not disappointed. The... More

The meat was really good. As in VERY good! No complaints. Salat was also nice and fresh. French fries were terrible: oily, cold and soft. The service was odd. They were not rude or unfriendly. They were just not good at service. For example the waiter left the table after pouring the first few drops of wine for tasting and... More

It's difficult to find restaurants that standout in amongst all the excellent parrillas in BA. El Establo manages this by providing honest old school service and huge quantities of their mouth watering beef. Cozy ambiance and a nice blend of local clientele mixed with the normal city centre tourist community. Loved it here for a big family meal.

We had some bad experiences in various Parrillas during our travels. El Establo got it right every meal we had there. They make their own potato fries, unlike parrillas that serve frozen. The steaks are the size of your face! 2 people can easily share 1 steak. The staff are experienced and very friendly. I highly recommend having dessert, the... More
