This unassuming place serves world class Argentine steak at reasonable prices. We had a chorizo steak which comfortably feeds two for u$s 17. We also had a provolone cheese slice (grilled to perfection), French fries (perfect skinny shape, crispy), chorizo sausage (finely ground, grilled to a gold... read more

I've been fortunate to eat and so many world class restaurants across the world and Albert serves THE best steaks on the planet. It's a warm and oh so comfortable atmosphere but make sure to arrive early enough to get a table! Get the house salad and a steak and some delicious Malbec. And smile...

After traveling for over three weeks in Patagonia, I have to say that this is the best steak place I had visited. I went there three times and suggest going with the recommendations of the servers in terms of the cut for the day. Service is very good.

This was one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. After a thirty hour bus ride from El Calafate, my wife and I got into Bariloche and stopped into this restaurant before we'd even checked into our hotel. I'm so glad we did because it was exactly what we wanted. The steak was EPIC and the rest of the... More

After spending 4 days in Buenos Aires and not finding "the" perfect steak, we flew to Bariloche and after picking up our rental car, we drove into town for lunch. We decided to try El Boliche de Alberto after reading a positive review in one of my guidebooks. We ordered the full size (500g) cut of ojo de bife (cooked... More

Boliche de Alberto is the go to for a classic, always on point, great for any sort of occasion - being intimate dinner or larger groups. They know what they are doing, and how to do it very well. All the locations are great. Rib eye is always superb here, fries as well. The copa Alberto is unmatched in Bariloche.

This is one of my favorite places of all time. Had come here years previously as a poor student upon hearing that it's the best meal in town and was blown away. Returned with family and blew them away too. Open parilla, unbelievable steak and fries, and just simply put, the best. 110%, absoloodle!
