Very nice restuarant

The service is excellent and the steaks were very good and cooked as ordered. The wine list is varied with many choices at a fair price.

This was our only trip to a steak house during our five day trip to Buenos Aires. Our steaks were average. I have to say I didn’t have the 'wow' feeling that I was hoping for. Portions are large - you do not need a starter. It is a really busy restaurant lacking in any real intimacy. Waiters are very... More

We went here on our penultimate night in BA (our last meal of the trip will be in Fervor, just up the road) and we felt that it was a good meal all round. The portions are very large, my partner had melon and ham to start and I had the avocado. My first choice of pork ribs was not... More

This restaurant offers very good meat. In my opinion it is one of the best restaurants to eat a nice steak in Buenos Aires.

We were recommend this restaurant by our rep and he was right to recommend it. It was our first night in BA so we dined early and got a table very easily, most Argentinians don't eat till after 9pm. The service was fantastic, lots of well turned out staff and all very helpful. We had a fantastic bottle of melbac... More

Like most upscale, Argentinian steak houses, the steak here was very good, and unlike some, a medium steak came pink in the middle rather than raw. So they certainly know how to cook them. Having said that, overall it was down the list of restaurants we visited during the week. Fervor, Le Sud, and Elena, all in the same area... More

Busy and lively restaurant full of locals. We managed to get in as Sofitel rang for us but booking is recommended. Nevertheless after a short wait, softened by a free glass of 'champagne' we enjoyed a delicious steak meal .

I orderd the filet, which was quite large but very tasty. Also indulged in some wine. It's a must! I was a little disappointed in the bread pudding. It had more the consistency of flan, and wasn't what I was expecting. Otherwise, very good!

Despite the fact that I consider this place an overpriced, and overrated "parrilla" in Buenos Aires, again, after many years, I find insects in the salad. In this case small worms. Disgusting, and unacceptable. It was in the middle of a job-business meeting and I just had to put the salad away and ignore this, and go on with the... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
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.
