When we go to the restaurant we do expect two things: good food and good service level. El Pobre Luis offers a good food, not top food in a nice place. Unfortunately the service level is low. Few examples: the waiter, when the wine tasted...of cork and the color was "strange" tried to convince us that it was the correct taste. The waiter has to change the bottle and first of all he never can hypotheses the guest is wrong. Second, when the sauce bottle was finished, he tried to "squeeze" it and put it cap side down on the table telling us it's only to wait. So, for the service level El Pobre Luis can't reach more than a mid evaluation.More

Well, one of the best Parrillas in Buenos Aires. Quaint place, amazing meat, excellent service and pretty decent prices. We were 10 and booked and early dinner as soon as they open: 08.00 pm... Pamplonas, Uruguay Beef, Provoletas and more, pls see the attached images....If you have the chance, give el Pobre Luis a try!.More

Some local friends took us to this intriguing place hidden in Chinatown. What a gem. Eight of us indulged in a frenzy of meat eating and wine drinking. Due to the depressed state of the Argentinian peso, the bill was only $US 20 per person....Ridiculously good value. The food was sensational as was the wine. Everything was just wonderful. Highly recommended.More

When your arrive you will be impressed by the interesting decor with a soccer theme. This elevates expectations. In fact it is a very interesting place. everywhere you look there are interesting soccer themed accents to be appreciated. However the food and service do not...live up to the visual experience. We were in a large group and ordered almost everything on the menu. Every cut of meat was either under or over cooked and all were served with a disappointing level or grease. The sides came cold and soggy. The highlights were the appetizers, especially the provaleta. Despite the throng of servers dedicated to our table, they could not get the orders right and were not helpful through the selection process. I would have given them some slack if it were a busy night, but on a tuesday the restaurant was not at capacity. Wont be back any time soon. If this review was helpful, please let me know by clicking on the stars! thanks!More

I went there for dinner during a business trip to Buenos Aires. It was highly recommended by an Argentinean friend of mine. We had to book one day in advance as it is typically pretty busy. People there were mainly local and frequent customers, including...famous football players. Steaks were the best during my stay in Buenos Aires. Highly recommendedMore

i gotta say, it’s good, but it’s not freakin amazing. waiter forgot order twice. the attitude was kinda lame; by this, i mean, so damn laid back it was almost read as indifference. the food? meh. yes, meh. i’ve been coming to argentina for 15...years and for a place to claim to be great and charge what these guys do, you need to impress. fail. chicken came out pink, molleja portion half the size of any decent parilla and double the price. if i had to summerize, i’d simply say - not worth it. it’s 20 mins from downtown BA, and you would literally drive past 1000 places that would do better for half or a third of the price. i don’t care about the decor, the anectotes of who ate there or that the hostess was a sexy welcome, this is a food review and it’s: meh. oh the stainless steel grill is a feat of engineering well worth a look if you’re into well constructed things.More

I was there in May and the restaurant is a classic Argentinian steak house, full of nice decorations and the smell of beef being grilled gets to you as soon as you enter. Service is good and the food is great, we tried 2 different...cuts of meat and from 1 to 10 I'll give 8 to the quality of the meat. I would visit again to see if I can change my mind.More

We had walked by the place a couple of times and we decided to give it a try. We got there shortly after the eight o’clock opening and even though we had no reservation we got the second last available table. It was a Monday...night and the place packed. I found the service to be excellent, the portions to be large, and the food tasty. Probably the best all round meal I’ve had in Buenos Aires in the last 3 months.More

The restaurant is in a quiet neighborhood (Nuñez), a few blocks away from Chinatown. There is a parking lot a few meters away, you will need it if you go by car. Food is excellent and prices are value for money. Expect to spend USD...25 per person without dessert and an average wine. Wine list is short but has very good wines. The pamplona (meat or chicken roll with cheese) is the house speciality. Recommended!More

Belgrano
As one of the main commercial hubs of Buenos Aires,
Belgrano has something for everyone. The myriad of
shop windows in Cabildo Ave. will draw you in, but it
is Chinatown — an area of no more than two square
blocks — which will keep you hooked. Crowned by an
ornate arch marking its entrance and filled with small
stores packed to the brim, it is a place where color
and scent emanate from every corner, particularly
