Description: It was established in 2002 with a clear concept of Parrilla-Cantina, the best home cooking from Buenos Aires with a great taste. There was not another place with such proposal. The gratitude of the people was evident and definitive. It is de kind of reliable restaurant. It never fails, a real solution when is time to choose a good place to eat out. It is a good, modern, warm and lovely environment, open to the public, wide spectrum. It is a familiar place, for medium or big friend tables, couples and lonely clients. The cutlery is constantly rotating thanks to an instructed and oiled service. La Dorita announces. People call more people. They already know what they are going to look for, the best meat, made with great care. It is presented stylishly and without pretentious, the dishes of red-hot iron leaned on planks, land over the table offering a warm moment,whetting your appetite. The portions are abundant. The detail of the color is the typical penguins and a bottle where the wine comes from wineries of first quality, served from barrels in full view of everyone. The home-made desserts are the perfect close of the service, dynamic and kind. La Dorita offers a good relation between quality-price and that is how, the restaurant gaing fidelity with the reliable clients. These characteristics become this restaurant into a place where you can go daily. The client is satisfied. La Dorita is the best option to eat well every day.

“fair price and excellent steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

There are 3 or 4 La Dorita around Buenos Aires. Look for one of them as it´s an authentic Argentinean parilla restaurant with a fair price and excellent steaks. From what I saw, most customers were locals. Staff was extremely friendly, atmosphere is nice, the steaks were all great and wine list is extensive enough. I would definitely recommend it to a friend going to Buenos Aires. Won’t disappoint you!

“Very nice value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had a great time at La Dorita. The salads were very good and the beef steaks were very tasty.

We were able to get a same day reservation. We arrived early and had a drink outside.

The whole experience was really nice and the food was well prepared and presented.

Put this one on your list for an authentic, local experience. You will be glad you did!

“Great Beef - Friendly Service - Local Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a must if you like unpretentious food, fantastic beef in a place mainly visited by locals. Service was very friendly (we speak Spanish), fast and had good suggestions. The Bife de Chorizo and the Lomo were as good as it gets! The wine list has good options for honest prices. Overall prices are very reasonable. Finish the meal with a nice flan with Dulce de Leche! If you prefer ice cream, just visit the shop in front, Chungo, with some of the best Helados in town!

“Good option for beef and more in Palermo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Typical suburb, traditional grill restaurant, La Dorita sits in the heart of Palermo Hollywood. Decor is totally indefinite, a mix of all, what adds a kitsch touch to the place. In two large rooms the restaurant offers typical Argetenean food - salads, a large variety of char grilled meats, sides and desserts and beverages priced pretty wallet-friendly. Ojo de bife and half chorizo beef are two great options for either lunch or dinner. Instead of fries and salad as your meat side indulge yourself with a lovely potato tortilla - offered as a starter, it is made to order and fits perfectly as an out-of-ordinary, fantastic side for your steak. Be carefull because it serves even three people. Ice cold beer and local wines, always a nice companion for your steak, complement the menu. Service is corteous and prompt. To wrap up your meal, don't leave without ordering a shot of the house limoncello.

“Best Wine - Penguin Litre Jug!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by our accomodation as a favourite of locals. Despite it being a parrilla I actually opted for the lasagne not realising it was vegetarian! But it turned out to be delicious - comprising of sweet potato/spinach/feta etc.

Service was very quick and the total cost was notably inexpensive!

Tip: The most notable part of our visit was the wine, which was a recommendation of our accommodation again. They serve some particular wines in litre jugs (shaped like penguins - see photo uploaded). The name of the wine for those interested was "Pinguine de Litro - Elementes Malbec" - It was super! A definite highlight wine of our travels - and thats saying alot!
