“Good food, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We called in late at night, the place was busy, but by re-arranging some tables, the young lady (owner?) was able to fit us in. Even better, the special was Argentinian BBQ, for 2. We were 4 adults & 1 teenager, she allowed us to take up 2 & 1/2 tables & order 2 2xmeals. The youngster ate off both plates.

For Belgium, the beer wasn't great, the food was exceptional, the Argentinian wine was expensive, but worth it for the "round experience".

Really I can't recommend this place enough. Was it the best meal I ever had? maybe not, but the effort, the service & the food were great.

“Excellent food & a friendly service in the heart of Ghent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

The place is (too) small to be a decent restaurant but the hospita makes you feel confortable when she invites you to your table with a large smile. If you are a fan of a good grilled piece of meat and tapas, plus fine Argentina wines! you'll love this place: The wine bar is located at the very center of old Ghent, so from here you walk to all the historical attractions of the city. A lot of bars and other restaurants are literally around the corner of the street (donkersteeg).

“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We made a reservation at this restaurant this weekend based on all the great comments on tripadvisor. We we're welcomed very kindly by the hostess. We chose the "Parrilla Argentina" which is their mixed grill, that had different kinds of argentinian meat and an argentinian cheese. I honestly have to say that I have never tasted meat with that much flavour.

Overall we had a great evening with great food, great wine (very good quality for every price) in a really cosy atmosphere.

We will definately come back !

“Vino, parrilla y Tango”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

An argentinian boutique of fine wines and delicious meats, in the heart of Gent, with a relaxed atmosphere, super friendly service and dedicated attention. The ideal place to enjoy the best Argentine meat. Argenvino has a fine selection of delicate wines and the unmistakable flavor of grilled Argentina. Intimate, personalized and very tasty. I cant' wait to enjoy again its unique flavor. Do not miss it!

“fine food, warm people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This little restaurant offers some of the best value for money food in Ghent city centre. The tapa's are to die for, and the steaks are grilled perfectly. You have to be a meatlover though, to eat here. The menu for 20 euro is a great deal. And the wines are top quality, and very nicely priced. There are several great choices for under 20 euro a bottle, and a large selection by the glass as well.Staff is very friendly and helpful. I will definitely go there again.
