Very authentic argentinian steakhouse I visit for the last 20 years, whenever I am in Buenos Aires. Good for lunch and dinner. Best meat, I love it! Nice typical atmosphere, also many locals.

Very tasty steaks. We got there at 8pm on a rainy Sunday night and the place was packed. Make sure you make a reservation. Service above average. Loved the spinach in garlic and olive oil and potatoes as a side. Almond desert ice cream was also a treat. Inexpensive by Australian standards. Enjoyed the whole experience.

We went here on our first week in Buenos Aires. It was just a random choice while we were just getting settled. It was an excellent find. Now that we have been here for almost 3 months. This meal both in portion size and price is still in our top 5 dinners in Buenos Aires. We had good polite service.

Wonderful meal cooked perfectly! My husband and I split an enormous T-bone steak and it was delicious. Great prices and service as well. Full of local diners.

This is a long established , rather bourgois grill, with hanging hams and other rustic decorations. We were greeted well and shown to a table for 4. When two acquaintances came in unexpectedly the management expanded our table to 6 without any fuss.There is a long menu of starters and mains, including many Argentinian specialities. So many appetizing dishes were... More

Quaint little neighborhood restaurant that will surprise you with its menu and quality of food. Great selection of meats, pasta, pizza, etc but their chimichurri for their meats and was outstanding. Our waiter basically picked our meal for us which was awesome. This place is a combination of old school class and old town comfort with a maitre-d seating you,... More

A good night out, would certainly go back. I had the beef rib eye, it was cooked perfectly. The little bowl of sauce that it comes with is a gem.

It was our first night in central Buenos Aires and we were staying at a hotel down the road from this restaurant. When we walked past the restaurant it was busy so we went in. We received a warm and friendly welcome. The restaurant was very homely and had a great vibe. They had a great variety of meals on... 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.
