I have been here for lunch with the office staff while visiting our Office in BA. The restaurant is old style, old waiters and nice oldish classical atmosphere. The food was good, nothing out of this world, but anyhow very good. Definitely I would recommend this place to visit, but once is enough, there are plenty other restaurant to try... More

Our hotel (Rooney's) recommended this as a good place for Argentinian beef. They were right!! We got there a bit early by Buenos Aires standards but got to see the 'locals' come in and enjoy the restaurant. The service was first class - we said that we had no Spanish right away and they made sure that we had an... More

We ate here on our first night in BA, at the recommendation of the hotel. The service was very good, the steak was great and the Chimichurri was amazing. A pleasant experience despite the fact that the restaurant caters to a lot of tourists.

Have a NY steak, a glass of Malbec. After this not other food will satisfy you. Very traditional place in Argentina. Share portions, beef is grass fed. Salads are huge. Pay cash.

Provoletta and then fantastic squid ink pasta in this charming place which has a great neighbourhood feel. Walls are lined with signed photos and memorabilia. Extensive wine list and desserts looked good, but we were too full to manage any. Satyed full from around 10:30 whenwe arrived until past midnight. We had a great time here despite our very limited... More

One of the best restaurants, service was perfect (Mr. Tigre really nice) and the food, big portion, perfect meat, pasta, dessert! That's a place where argentine people are used to, not just tourists, what makes it more interesting!!! I intend to go back as soon as I can!

A traditional restaurant with local history and photos of old famous customers. Went for lunch 2 times and found a special self service table with unique price on sunday, very good option, also with the a la carte if you prefer. Local people and old customers are frequent. Best restaurant in the neighborhood

This place was nice with friendly staff. It was equivalent to pizza express for the English among you.

We ate here twice because the food is really solid. Good cuts of meats, huge plates and good service. Our waiter Hector was kind and made good recommendations in terms of food. he was kind and fun. This place is not cheap. Actually its average American prices here and lots of tourists. Come hungry, leave happy!
