Argentine restaurant in Peru. Very good food though. They did have one Peruvian dish on the menu, steak pieces with onion and tomato in a brown sauce. Very flavorful. The dish can with fresh French fries and rice.

Great food. Argentinian style with great service. You can bring your wine and drink it here for less than USD10. I was here once a week with my girlfriend (also Argentinian) also a meat fundamentalist. Absolute must for a good grill in Lima.

This is a good steakhouse, with a long history serving the community. The food was quite edible, but I was limited in gluten and dairy free side options. Steak was the standout here, but I really prefer some healthy veggies with such a heavy meal. Go if you're in the mood for a perfectly cooked, tender piece of meat!

If you have never had grass fed, Argentinian beef you are in for a treat. All the meat is flown in from Argentina and it's as good as you can get in Buenos Aires. It's been a fixture in Miraglores since 1963 and over the years, besides its location which changed once, little else has changed. My favorite meal: start... More

This steak house used to be one of the finest in town. However, I just returned after a few years and it's just not the dame. My friend and I ordered the "cuadril" and it was a cheap piece of meat which you could get anywhere for 1/5 of what we paid.

My favorite place to eat in the world. Outstanding Argentine beef. Great service and parking available. Folk tend to seat and eat real slow. You gotta try the Tres Leche Cake appreciate the large portions that are regular here. Salad will catch your attention and fill you up. Gotta get back there as soon as possible.

Everything, starting with the Pisco Sour, and ending with the most delicious filet I've ever had (mushroom sauce) was wonderful! Our waiter was so gracious and helped us immensely with our wine choice. BEST Cabernet - from Argentina! Very reasonably priced.

We visited this restaurant with a very large group. We had over 30 college age students and adults there and we were given the upstairs room. We were celebrating the fact that these students had just finished their first year of college. The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding!

Upmarket Restaurant with vaket parking at the front. Has been open since 1963 as they show on the nicely hand crafted menu sleeves. We started with Bread (later discovered to be S. 12) which was mice - freshly heated with a sekection of accompaniment. For the main course we shared a salad with Avocado (S. 35) and we each had...
