I had the best Bife de Ojo in Buenos Aires, and the service was good and only few blocks from my hotel. I will recommend and always was full, that means the food is good.

The food was very good. We were only three patrons at the time since it was early by the country's standards. The service was not so good as I had to often get the waiter's attention for service. if you can wait without hurry, I recommend the food.

We went here for Christmas dinner and we couldn't have picked a better option. It was hard to find a restaurant open on Christmas and our hotel recommended it. We all had amazing steaks and 2 bottles of wine and dessert for 50$ CAD pp. great value great service and great food! Would go back in a heartbeat.

delicious rib eye and chimichurri in traditional setting. Close to our hotel and busy with tourists and locals alike, always a good sign!

We make it a habit of never going to the same restaurant twice when we are on a vacation. We made an exception with El Establo. The steaks were soooo good! We had a big salad and wine with our dinner which were both perfect accompaniments for our steak. The service was excellent both nights, and the prices were very... More

Typical restaurant wit the certain flair. Waiters seem to work there for decades and have a very special approach to and with the customers. >Very good relation in regards to price-quality. Best meat during my whole stay excellent quality and very tasty. Nothing to complain about I´ll come definitely back :-)

Went there to celebrate my husband's retirement. The food was plentiful and delicious. The prices are more than reasonable and probably half of US. The wait staff are so professional and proud of their job and it shows.

The service could have been better, but the food was amazing. Excellent bife de chorizo and also loved the berenjenas en escabeche. It's a shame that I didn't have enough time to go back. Really loved that steak.

It has been a long time since I was in Buenos Aires (over 10 years) but El Establo looked exactly the same. In fact I am pretty sure the waiter WAS the same. I had a late lunch, 1/2 a rib eye, arugula salad and a glass of red wine. The steak came perfectly medium rare and well salted, the... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
