We found this restaurant, but it did not open until 7:30 pm, so we went down the street (to wait until they opened) at a place called Cosecha to drink wine. (Go here, too.). When the 7:30 bewitching hour began to approach (actually closer to...8 p.m. which they said was better) we walked back to Desnivel for dinner. We all had beef dishes which were served with French fries or round, sliced potatoes. The beef was wonderful. My dish was served with a mushroom cream sauce. The potatoes, both styles, were heavenly. Our servers were great, funny and very accommodating when we wanted to split the bill in an uneven manner with the other party as they were not drinking wine and we were. We would not hesitate to go back again.More

Walking through the San Telmo feria we found this restaurant El Desnivel. It looks small but it is very large because there are different rooms and levels. The food was very tasty and very large portions. Very familiar ambiance.

When visiting San Telmo, be sure to step in this popular place to eat and chat with locals. This place are famous among locals and for good food. The service staff will treat you as loyal customer and you will soon feel that you belong...there. If you looking restaurant it’s not, rather a cantina. Highly recommended by locals and me.More

We went out to get a pizza but when we got to the pizza place there was no one to find and we figured we go somewhere else instead. This is how we landed in Desnivel because it was fully packed and filled with life....We ordered pastas as we have had meat for the past days already. I had the ravioli with spinach and meat. I don’t remember the sauce I choose as it was recommended by the staff. The ravioli was a bit thicker than I like and it tasted just a bit undercooked. Not much but just a bit and maybe it was because of the thickness. The sauce sadly didn’t do it for me either. It wasn’t bad but just not something I would order again. The service was friendly and fast. Very impressive actually looking at the amount of people and the small amount of staff. Seriously impressive. The ambiance is great with a fully packed house and when I saw the steaks pass me I figure their grill and steaks are better then their pastas. Pricing is good (low/medium) so no complaints there.More

Great choice, perfect value and always packed! Either come early before 9pm or late after 11 pm. High noise level, fast and friendly service...good recommendation.

This is a first class restaurant, please remember is is a BBQ, restaurant first and foremost and you will not be dissatisfied, not a place to order a casserole..... excellent meal and great value for steak and wine.

The place doesn't look that cosy to have a dinner..but really..the meat is really good! I am not a meat lover and I eat here 3 times! The steak is so good, with a lot of sauce. Mmm I loved it!!!!! I tried other places,...but they didnt have the same quality and especially not the same prices. All other places were a lot more expensive and not as tasty! Desnivel is the best steak restaurant for me!!More

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique

Ha! Just show up. It's not the kind of place you make a reservation to go ;) It's a "bodegón" (untranslatable)
