Well, excpected it to be more argentinean, with more argentinean plates, but could'n find even the milanesa. My collegues also were not satisfied with it.

The food left me mixed feelings. They offer Empanadas Argentinas (a typical meat turnover) which was really good, the red wine of the house was somewhat bad, no body at all. The "chimichurri" (an argentinian dressing) was awesome. On regards of the meat (house specialty) they offered several cuts in two kinds of quality, National and Imported (from Argentina) being...

If you fancy a steak then this unassuming place is where to go. Not far from the Carolina park.

The empanada appetizer was great. We took the argentinian steak (which is the more expensive kind) , it was good but not more then that. a decent place - nice food, nice service & nice atmosphere but not exciting.

We really liked the rustic interior. The appetizers were great. My steak was on the tough side, but had pretty good flavor. Desserts were very good.

My wife and I enjoyed a nice meal at Dos Argentinos at basically 1/2 the price of the Swissotel where we were staying. I thought the portions were perfect and everything tasted great. Our waiter did not speak english but, did not prove to be a problem. I would recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a steak dinner in... More

They served us a rottening, grey, smelling beef for lunch. The owner was in complete denial and sent the poor waiter forward to try to offer something else. They might have been bad day, but the fact local meet is served with a deceptive Argentinean flag points to the contrary. Better resturants are honest, offer a choice and charge for... More

Across the street from the Swissotel and near the Ramada Inn, this Argentinian steak house was just what we were looking for. The food is excellent and very reasonable. Although the waiter did not speak any English both of the owners speak excellent English, and were very helpful in explaining the different cuts of meat. The menu is in both... More
