Amazing steak

Very good quality meat grilled to perfection. Full portion is around 700g, so half portion could be enough for someone with a moderate appetite. Can get very crowded, so try to get there around 20:00 if you don't want to wait. Will definitely go there again.

We visited the Alberto's at Elflein 168, not the one on Villegas. The food was terrific, the service amazing and the price absolutely right. Outstanding option for beef lovers!

The place is not fancy at all, the wine menu was a little short because there were a lot of wines missing, but the steak, the privilege and the fries were something to remember!!!

Not a luxurious interior but very functional. The service is good and efficient. Prices are okay as well as the wine list. But the meat; VERY VERY good. It is that good that Argentinians are waiting outside to get a table to enjoy it. Yes, that good.

I have gone to dozens of parrillas in Argentina and was surprised to read people saying the steak in at El Boliche de Alberto was better than Buenos Aires. We were not dissapointed. The steak was more tender than any I'd ever had and cooked perfectly, the service excellent and the prices reasonable. Be aware that the portion sizes are... More

Excellent meat and service. We ordered Ojo de bife and it was great. One portion is for 2. Overall above our expectations.

Enormous portion, very reasonable price (helped by the exchange rate), a tasty seasoning without an overwhelming rub. I always favored corn-fed beef but the taste of Pampas grass fed is spectacular

Perfect combination of quality meat, delicious French fries and varied salads. Every visitor to Bariloche wants to know where Alberto's Boliche is...

Traditional restaurant in Bariloche with two units. Tasteful pastas and the argentinean meat are the main choices. I found the price very honest considering the touristic aspect of the city. If you ar visiting Bariloche, this is a restaurant you should go.

While we ate Lamb/Steak pretty much every day during our 3 week vacation in Argentina, this was one of the few that we'll never forget. Make sure you get to the right one (we were in the one, yes same name/owner I believe, that is NOT on the corner). Request a table on window side or elsewhere not in the... More
