Description: En este restaurante único encontrarás la gastronomía típica de Argentina que, a pesar de mantener las referencias culinarias más tradicionales, se inspira en un estilo moderno y vanguardista. Como buen argentino, su especialidad son las carnes a la brasa (carnes de la Pampa): solomillos, entrecots, chuletones y la clásica parrillada argentina. Pero eso no es todo, también disponen de ensaladas, pasta fresca al estilo italiano (con una gran selección de salsas), pescado a la brasa y platos vegetarianos. Entre algunas de las propuestas de la carta de El Argentino te recomendamos: el chorizo criollo a la parrilla, el matambre arrollado, el vitel toné (redondo de ternera con mayonesa de atún y anchoas), el bife de cuadril argentino, el vacío de ternera al asador, la entraña de ternera, el chuletón argentino, los sorrentinos rellenos de gorgonzola y nueces y la lasaña con verduras, carne, jamón y queso. Para acompañar tales delicias nada mejor que un vino de su completa bodega, formada por vinos españoles y argentinos.

“Not really!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

At first we were excited to have found this restaurant as we love Argentinian Cuisine! The restaurant and the terrace were basically empty and still it was hard to get the waiters attention - it felt as if everyone was on a break. The food was the worst of all the Argentinian steakhouses we visited in Barcelona, but nothing was as bad as the treatment of the (missing) waiter. We wanted to order more wine but no one was there. It got worse and worse, I guess if I hadn't entered to order the bill, we'd still be there. A restaurant definitely not worth returning to.

“A taste of Argentinian Cuisine In Barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

I have been in this restaurant several times and the food is just delicious. Call the restaurant in the morning to check if the calcotada menu is available. This is a flavorful menu of typical Catalunya onions, as appetizers, and a mixed grill of selected meat to die for as a main course. A great selection of Argentinian red wines.

“highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

I have been going to Barcelona and Argentina for business, and I can say that the quality and atmosphere of Viento del Plata makes you feel very much in Buenos Aires.

I have tried multiple options from the menu, and all are of first-rate quality. The Bife de Lomo (solomillo) is exquisite. The 'parrilla' lets you believe that you are really in Argentina. And the empanadas melt in your mouth so quickly that the calorie intake becomes a serious problem!

The decoration is inviting and warm. Photos of Argentinean idols are imposing on the walls and honestly, can be really bad for those nostalgic of past glories -- except for that one of Che Guevara that needs to go.

I wholeheartedly recommend Viento del Plata. Unfortunately, I have bad news: I don't know of an equivalent place serving traditional or modern versions of Catalan cuisine in Buenos Aires.

“Good Argentinean restaurant in Barcelona's downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

Good Argentinean food in Barcelona city centre. I would recommend in particular the entraña, a very tasty cut of beef.
