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

Husband ordered med rare-red and it was perfect. We ate at about 4pm before it was busy and watched as each glass was polished. We... More

Opens 'till late, serves good food and drinks and the staff are friendly, attentive and forgiving of very, very, poor Spanish. They don't speak good English either so it makes for a funny encounter and fun times. Meal portions are generous and so just ask for a 'doggy-bag' and eat the left-overs the next day in St Martin Plaza, a... More

I have eaten at many parrillas in Argentina, from the very expensive restaurants in Puerto Madera, to some very basic places in small towns. El Establo is one of the better ones. It is small, the tables are close, it's busy, but it is the real deal. The portions are generous, and the prices reasonable

After reading reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to dine here. Not much English spoken by the staff. We ordered our steaks and they were ok, tender and tasty enough but over rated. Also ordered raspberries for dessert and surprised that they were frozen. It was a very busy restaurant and obviously very popular. When we paid the bill in cash... More

This legendary Parrilla is probably one of the best places in the world to eat beef. I had bife de lomo and was transported to heaven. Not only was it grilled to perfection (medium rare) but unbelievably soft and so full of flavour. It is quite an experience just to watch them on the grill - a reall balancing act,... More

If you're serious meat water, this is the place to go. Excellent meats served by an attentive staff. George, the waiter, is always on full volume! He does everything to make dinner a memorable experience
