Description: AMBIENCE & CONCEPT Buenos Aires Restaurant's concept provides a unique combination of excellent quality Argentine cuts of beef from grass-fed cattle reared in the fertile lowlands of Las Pampas and cooked on an authentic parrilla (barbecue) paired with superb Argentine wines, traditional Argentine cuisine, quality ingredients and a vibrant atmosphere. THE CHEF Lucia was born in Buenos Aires in a family where cooking was a means of sharing love. She carefully developed a unique style for blending farm-like cooking techniques and dish presentations with a delicate but simple cuisine. Lucia has gained experience surrounded by some of the best names in the Argentinian cuisine (Francis Mallmann, Narda Lepes and Pablo Massey) her cooking style keeps improving whilst occasionally going back to her roots for inspiration. Since she moved to London in 2009, she has focused on developing her Argentinean skills, extending her senses and knowledge towards international food. As she once said: "It is important to be creative when you cook, but you should not forget the essence of old-fashion cuisine. Some things never change." FOOD & WINES Not just for steak lovers, Buenos Aires offers a range of authentic dishes made using the best quality ingredients and with traditional Argentine methods, including humita, a creamed sweetcorn dish wrapped in corn husks whilst cooking and mollejitas, pan-fried sweetbreads. COMPANY Buenos Aires Restaurant Group was established in June 2007 and today consists of nine. The Steakhouses are located in Central and South-East London. They continue to pay special attention the unique characteristic of the product: the prime quality of the beef and also a great selection of Argentine wines to accompany it.

“Decent lunch time steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Four of us for an informal City lunch on a Friday. Steaks were great, well cooked and reasonably priced to boot. Good, professional service with a friendly welcome. Restaurant was very quiet for a Friday lunchtime though and therefore lacking in any sort of atmosphere. Would definitely go again though either of a lunchtime or an evening.

“What a steak!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Let say much better of the touristic steakhouse in the city center. We've been there after a long work day, food was good and meat quality was more than fair. Good choice of starters even if portions are not generous (I ordered twice). Finest prime fillet was good, but not the best one I've ever had and a little under my expectations. Fair choice of wines. Service was excellent. I felt the place too noisy but the fact that a lot of people was there is a good sign.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Just been to visit the new Buenos Aires in the city ( watling street ) , what a great experiance, the host that welcomed us was cheerful as well as the waiter who had great knowledge and was guiding us through the menu and extensive wine list.
When the food arrived we was very happy , obviousley we had to go for a steak as thats what Aegentines are well known for , but my partner couldnt resist the Lamb leg special which melted in our mouths aswell as having great flavour, the hand cut chips were great as well as pepper sauce, and the Rib Eye was cooked to perfection with great seasoning.
We didnt have space for dessert but i will make sure i save space nect time, is i will definatly be back.

“Great steak, great decor in a convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Stuck for a place to go for dinner one late evening we decided to give Buenos Aires a go and not one of the five of us was disappointed. Newly opened it has a great layout and design, with two floors of tables nicely spread out giving it an ambient buzz.
The menu has a good range of choice both for taste and budget (obviously for the carnivore although I wasn’t particularly on the lookout for any vegetarian dishes).
In short, the steak was fantastic.
Great selection of drinks and the lead waitress had some great recommendations.
A very enjoyable night will definitely be back.
