“Excellent but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

This is one of the most well known steak places in Buenos Aires as it is frequented by many tourists and people on business. The food and service is excellent but it definitely tilts toward the touristy side and is very expensive. Regardless, if you can afford it, it's an excellent option.

“For beef lovers with deep pockets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

I ate here in 2010 and went out of my way to return for the one night I was staying in Buenos Ares this trip. The bread and appetizer tray that is included in the total bill is great. The steaks are second to none, but beware the portions are huge to match the prices with the average steak entre costing about $40.00 USD. The wine list is overpriced with many local Argentina wines costing 3-4 times what I can buy them In NYC for. Still overall a destination restaurant that I would return to again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

The best steak full stop. Tasty...good cuts and excellent wine list. Pricy but worth it, we went twice in a week.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

The restaurant was recommended by our tour guide for great steaks. Good location on dockside but touristy. Wide selection of steaks. Good wine list. However the steaks were not up to the standard elsewhere in Argentina. A bit tough and ordinary.

“The STEAK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Every time I travel to Buenos Aires I always end up in Las Lilas for lunch... it's just the best argentinian steak in town !!! excellent chorizo steak or sirloin, whatever you choose, with those excellent baked potatoes, as well as excellent desserts. It is an informal place with lots of different nationalities who come to visit and taste the famous argentinian meat.
