“Best burger in the World?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This must be the best burger in the World, ever. Two enormous steak patties with a delicious cheese sauce and those amazing Icelandic mushrooms.

“Best Meal in Iceland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

Now this is what I call a Steakhouse.
This was our first stop for an evening meal on our recent trip to Iceland and we were not disappointed.
The restaurant oozed atmosphere and you immediately knew you'd walked into a top class eatery.
The staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive without being overly so. Nothing was too much trouble.
Being a coeliac I took a language card with me and they were only too happy to check with the chef as to what I could and couldn't have from the menu.
Having opted for Icelandic lamb I was not disappointed.
The restaurant is on the expensive side but I hope, like us you'll find it well worth the money. It can be busy so I'd recommend booking.
I'd, without question, return for a meal here.

“Iceland meets Argentina with a French style service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

What can I say - the service in this restaurant was unreal the best service I have had anywhere. Waiters were continually walking around filling our glasses with fresh iced water. Yes tap water! Icelandic water is lovely. We ordered 2 kir Royals and a shirley temple for my son which I think is orange ginger ale and grenadine? We were given a free starter sample of smoked eel which was very nice. We had prawns to start and I had chicken and the boys had steak and lamb - both were lovely. This is a little pricey and if you drink a lot it will cost a lot. Our meal came to about £180 Worth a visit

“Great Steak Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Went to the Argentina Steakhouse for a business meeting. I had read a lot about the place and it was on my togo list.
The steak was excellent. Perfectly cooked, ample in proportion and accompanied perfectly with an Argentina wine.

Next time I go I will take my wife and talk about the quality of the food and service rather than work.

I will be keeping this restaurant on my bucket list.

“No title”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Walking into this restaurant is a bit like walking into your neighbors backyard. However the times I have visited them I got good service, making me feel almost at home and excellent food.
