Been there twice, for dinner and lunch. The wine menu is great and having a great cost benefit. The meat is perfect. The pasta, amazing!

I ate here several times as I was working nearby. Steaks were very good. Buffet was decent but sometimes it didn't look too fresh. A fairly good restaurant for this area. Seems popular with locals.

One of the most traditional spots downtown Buenos Aires, the Chiquilin offers a wide range of options in the menu. Highlights are Italian dishes and meat from the "parrilla". But the star is the "bife the chorizo", the best one I ever had. Since a close friend took me there for the first time a few years ago, I always... More

This restaurant was excellent in every way, ambiance, food, service. Excellent steak and wine. A great place to dine whether a casual evening out or a celebration. Definitely one of the best of our two week trip to Argentina.

If you want good meat, this is an excellent place. We had two kinds of meat, fried potatoes and wine. Everything cooked perfectly. The waiting staff was very gentle, but not that fast. Between the obelisk and the congress.

It's a very old restaurant. Waiters are experienced and seldom change. Meat is superb as is wine list. Locals love it. Always busy but you can get a table most of the time as it's huge. Been there many times after a show. Never been disappointed.

We selected this restaurant based on a recommendation in our guide book. We shared a Roquefort salad for appetizers with greens, balsamic pear in red wine sauce, caramalized nuts, huge chunks of roquefort cheese - really quite spectacular and very tasty. For the main courses, we selected the lasagna del chef which was good but quite filling, and the fetuccini... More
