We tried a number of different parrillas during our 2-week trip in Argentina, and El Charrua ranks as #1. The place was packed with mostly locals when we dined there, and it was easy to see why. My wife and I shared a parrillada (a bargain at less than 300 pesos), and all 3 different kinds of meat were fantastic.... More

This restaurant is a must to visit, the food is delicious and steaks perfect ! Portions are on the bigger size and one can consider sharing a steak ...Lasagna was also great ! Nice staff and service very good. Opens at 19.30 but fills up a little later. Good location in the center of town.

We had a fantastic lunch here recently and are still raving on about it days later!! We ordered a mixed meat platter for two which consisted of tira de asado, pollo, chorizo, provelone, potatoes in a roquefort sauce and mollejas - all served above hot charcoal, keeping everything warm for the duration of the meal which was great. Everything tasted... More

The meat was very well prepared exactley as we ordered it. The service stands out on this restaurant, we got a very attentive waiter which also helped us very... More

Living, working and travelling a lot in Argentina I had my fair share of steaks. But the Ojo de Bife at El Charrua was for sure one of the best I ever had. Accompanied by a vegetable salad of excellent quality (the avocado actually tasted of something and the carrots were sweet and crispy) and some nice local red wine.... More

We are at the end of a two month trip in Argentina and have had some really excellent beef at various restaurants. Thankfully, El Charrua did not disappoint. The Bife de Chorizo is a whopping 500 grams and ours was cooked to perfection and extremely tender. Combined with a substantial and tasty mediterranean salad, the one order of bife and... More

My boyfriend and I stumbled on this place while visiting Salta and we have since compared every parrilla meal in Buenos Aires to the meals we had at El Charrua. The steak was amazing. The salads, wine, and desserts were great. The service was fantastic each time we went for dinner. We are San Francisco foodies and we loved this... More
