Average food, overpriced menu and owful service. There are so many nice places in Ljubliana, this one was really disappointing.

Booked for 8 people to celebrate the anniversary in good faith that we will be indoors as 37 C was predicted. Upon arrival, we were given a table outside with the explanation that they do not serve food inside. We shortened the celebration time due...to the heat. Prices have increased enormously since a year and a half ago. Lung roast 150g (option 250g up to 350g) 30 to 51 EUR without side dish and not to mention the good taste. The appetizer - mussels were a disaster. The cake is watery and tasteless. Been several years ago and were satisfied. I do not recommend it at the moment, because the quality and taste of the food does not correspond to the prices....More

We wanted to be seated at the higher tables with a open view to the bar stuff movements. Greeted by a very professional waiter (we asked later and his name was David). With coffee, he suggested so called kremšnita with chestnut cream as the base....Tasteful to die for. His presentation of meat plate made us to pass to the main dish....even charcoal small pots under the grill plate was a great story to tell.. Empanada was a delicious dough and his explanation even more colourful. David made our lunch very special..a waiter that every place would dream for. We will be back again.More

Argentino Steak House is based on a great location, easily accessible and not hard to find. Since there is a huge parking lot beside, you will have no troubles with parking. Ambient is great. When you enter, there is a table and you have to...wait for the receptionist, which took about 4 minutes in our case (-). Hygiene is good. When we sat down, the waiter did not even notice, that I was a smoker, and I had to wait and ask him for an ashtray. We asked waiter what kind of wines do they offer. He seemed to have no ideas, so we ordered house wine, which turned out to be quite good. Ordering main course was funny. We ordered CHURRASCO DE CHORIZO and asked waiter, if there is a side dish included. He explained that it is not. We asked him to suggest and he had no ideas, at the end, we asked hit what PAPA ASADA is and after explanation, we decided for that. For desserts, we took strawbery cake (more like cheesecake) and chocolate souffle. Main point of my explanation is, that it was all average. It was tasty, but nothing exceptional. It plating was nice, but nothing special. Especially service was not good. Waiter was quite disturbed and did not know much about combining food and wine, what kind of wines they offer, etc. However, he was shy and nice. I think he was one of the waiters they hired after lockdown. Prices are quite high. My opinion is, that they will have to upgrade their variety of food, uptgrade taste of food and do much better service and plating. Only then will they achieve the "good value for money".More

A couple of years after our last (dissappointing) meal here, we decided to have another go as this used to be our staple for good steaks in Ljubljana. The food we got was subpar, steaks overcooked and dry, pepper sauce was so spicy it should...be labeled as such and the potatoes were completely dry and inedible. But the highlight was a 7€ roast veggies plate, comprised of two sticks of zuccini, a quarter of bell pepper, two quarters of a carrot, a slice (!) of onion and half a stock of celery. About 30 cents worth of veggies, if that. Overpriced, slow, and dreadful food. This was my last visit.More

After great experience at »Open Kitchen« we decided to try also the “real deal” in the Argentino restaurant. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. The service was unhelpful and the attitude, when “girls” ordered a well-done stake, was unacceptable (not everyone loves rear stakes). The quality...of meat was good, but the stakes were much to salty. The price for the served food and drinks is much too high. For us, never again.More

This was quite a bad experience for me. One small steak, one salat, tea, water, two glasses of wine, one souffle. Steak and souffle not even close to what it should be. Price 60 euros. You can pay these kind of price in Ljubljana's fine...restaurants, but this "Argentino" is a total ripp-off.More
