We have visited the Buenos Aires in Playa del Carmen many times over the past years and found that location to be high quality in a area filled with quality restaurant choices. On a recent trip to Tulum we found Buenos Aires in the town or puebla that is the same restaurant.
The good news is the quality is the same but the important news is to be careful how you order, they serve very large portions! I ordered a ribeye that came with two sides - potato and veggie and added a salad. My wife had a mixed grilled brouchette of beef tenderloin with grilled veggies and potato.
My salad arrived first and it was the size of a steak platter that easily could have fed four diners. We ate as much as we wanted and boxed the rest. Cost was $13US so I should have asked for a half order. Now I know, order half and split.
My USDA Angus Ribeye said 275 grs which meant nothing to me the $20US price seemed about what we had paid in PDC at a good steakhouse. It arrived and I immediately cut it in half, way too much steak for me. Plus baked potato which I cut in half and grilled veggies which were too much also. So I took home half the food that was served.
My wife's brouchette was tenderloin and shrimp and she was able to finish all the shrimp and half the tenderloin and boxed the rest. We had enough leftovers for breakfast tacos and lunch the next day.
We are headed back to Tulum in Sept and we plan to eat at Buenos Aires in puebla again but will order wisely and split the cost in half and still get plenty of food. Will try the arrachera nacional next time at $11US at it looked great on the plate at the next table.
Bread, chimichurra, dressings and sauces were all included and tasty. Bottle of wine from Argengtina was reasonable a Malbec.
