Full disclosure - I am originally from Argentina, and my family lives a few blocks away from Las Canitas, so i've tried quite a few of the places over there. And among all of those, the one I return to most often when back home is El Primo. Why? Because the meat is great while not being overpriced, the portions... More

Had a table on the sidewalk. Second time eating here and as usual, did not disappoint. Service is quick and friendly, the street atmosphere is wonderful with all the walkers and passerby's.

Food was exceptional, ordered tenderloin "jugosa", half the portion with green salad was truly enough for me (I'm a small woman with a big appetite). Food was so good, I can't even describe it. Delicious! Service was ok, but the waiter was weird at times. For example gave us menus to have a look at desserts and then just came... More

Drawn to this place by the nice ambiance. Lots of locals eating outside. It's fun because they give you a mini grill on your table with the meat. But the steaks were just mediocre compared to what you can get for similar prices elsewhere in the city. Nice waiter.

I have been and taken friends to El Primo whilst I have been in Buenos Aires since last December. We have eaten here nearly perhaps ten times and it never fails to satisfy. The food is great quality, the bife de chorizo and bife de lomo being the winners. Yesterday (in a group of ten) I ordered asado de tire... More
