We all ordered flank steak arrecharra. Mine was a bit overdone, medium when I had asked for medium rare. The others were good. The little sides were delicious. A bit pricey but I guess you pay for location.

The restaurant was recommended by the staff at the hotel we were staying at. We checked the details on Trip Advisor and saw that there were mixed reviews regarding the quality of food and level of service. Between us we had steak, burgers and wine. the restaurant is in a good location directly on 5th Avenue. Staff spoke English and... More

We had dinner with family and friends, asked for the "asado de tira" and "corte argentino" the corte was awesome, but where they really got me, was when I asked my asado de tira cooked 5/8, which is rare in some restaurants. Guess what? Cooked with perfection, a most go place! Congrats to the chef!

Good spot for families. Kids enjoyed the pasta and pizza dishes while mom and dad had a good steak. Value is decent for Avenue 5 and service is good but mostly Spanish speaking waiters, so brush up to get your order exact.

This place is a mixture of Italian and other fare. We had lasagna and salmon. Lasagna here is more on the Parmesan and Romano cheese taste with light sauce and heavier homemade noodles. It was a little too much on the Romano cheese taste for me but palatable. My husband had the salmon and said it compared to other that... More

El Diez was recommended to me by a local. She was supposed to join me for dinner, but due to unforeseen reasons, I had to have dinner alone. I was greeted promptly and seated immediately. The tuna carpaccio is delicious and very plentiful, and the NY steak was delicious, with a lettuce, tomato & onion salad dressed with a mustard... More

We were walking down 5th Avenida and stumbled on El Diez. We had a great table in the shade on the street. The food was good at a reasonable price. We got Spaghetti Bolognese and a hamburger with a side salad. Both were good and the service was attentive.

We dined at El Diez as it was suggested by a local. For an appetizer we had the prosciutto with bocconcini which was just that. An order of breaded chicken which was huge came with a side salad. I didn't care for the consistency of the chicken...a little rubbery. The arrachera special was flavourful but too junked up with other... More

What can I say...my wife is an Argentinian and very critical of restaurants that claim to be authentic Argentinian. Well...she had nothing bad to say about our 2 visits there this past trip. My favorite is the choripan with a side of french fries. My daughter loved the baked cheese casserol. My son ordered skirt steak and my wife ordered... More

Great People watching place. The empanadas were very good. The sirloin steak was very juicy and full of flavor. Great service. The meat soup was not to be missed. We will be back.
