This restaurant is located on a popular pedestrian boulevard in the heart of San Cristobal de las Casas. The staff was very accommodating to our large group arriving without a reservation. The empanadas were excellent and most of our group had steak and were pleased. The service was good and the Mexican wines were excellent.

Good Argentinian steak, and great Mexican wine list!! A bit overpriced, but a nice dine out experience that will satisfy your meat craving.

Service was good and they weren't hovering over us. The tapenade before the meal with the bread was delicious. Both of our steaks were done perfectly. Great flavor, tender and the size matched the menu description. I wish that there were fewer sellers on the street that interrupt your meal, but this isn't the restaurants fault.

Our steak was delicious but the service was very in-your-face and when we didn't give them the highest service rate as a result, they didn't even say goodbye to us!

We visited the resturant at 22 , one hour before closing and perpesly asked if its ok. The good was good (we ordered 2 steaks) but once it was 11 pm thay gave us a feeling that we have to leave, were practcly sitting above out heads and waiting for us to leave. That obiously gave us a bad feeling... More

One word: go. You wont regret. El argentino is actually two places, one for only meat on for extra (fish, empanadas, choriso etc). We went a bunch of people to the meat place. The best meat (took entranya, no fat, melt in your mouth), great service, excellent price. Just go

After having my fare share of Mexican food, I decided to go Argentinian on my last night. It was nothing short of inspiring. I tried the entrana said steak and it was a mouthful bliss. Just watch out of the extremely hot Sauces they have.
