Unfair reviews. Not the most amazing ambience but warm service , absolutely excellent steaks and meats and chicken. Yes the chips came 10 minutes before the main meal but somehow we survived that. Great starters as well and the chocolate mousse to finish. We were...very pleased we found it. Pay in Sols or USD.More

Three of us went last night. From the moment we walked in and asked for a table till we left, service was bad. We were ignored and had menus with a sticker on the front saying "no credit cards" thrown our way. We kept trying...to stop a waiter, who are so dour and unfriendly, so we could place an order and that took about 15 minutes. Eventually ordered our steaks. The steak comes without any side dishes and your chips will be served 10 minutes before your meat arrives. We were served 2 large steaks each, which were very tasty and succulent. We then had the bill thrown at us, before we were asked if we wanted dessert or tea and coffee. We had come to the restaurant by taxi from Recoleta and had assumed that someone would be helpful and call a taxi for us!!!! How wrong could we be. When we asked uf they could help, they all just said 'no' and all looked stony faced. So go with lots of cash ( they will take $s as well), a phone number for a taxi and expect to be treated like something stuck on their shoe by one of the many passing dogs, and you'll be fine.More

There are a couple of excellent kosher steakhouses in BA and this is one of them. The food is very good, the prices are very reasonable (especially for kosher), the service is okay enough.

The two of us went on a Wednesday night and the place was full and really hopping between 8 and 10:30 pm. Food was good without being great. But don't ask for ketchup, whether to go with your steak or your fries. They do not...have any. That said, the service was friendly, and it was easy to make friends with the chap on the next table.More

Don't approach this place if you don't speak Spanish. If you do, probably you will get better service, I am not sure, but you most probably will be able communicate with waiters and know what you order. But in any case you will be waiting...to get attention. And afterward you get meat full of fat, and absolutely not tastyMore

Food was good but not at same standard as other non-kosher places in area. Service no-frills and to the point. A little expensive for the experience.

Waiter seemed confused, could not answer question about dishes, had to run to ask the cook about details. People who came after us were served before us. my wife was furious, went to complain and we almost left. New waiter came and brought dishes, but...her falafel was dry and inedible, had to be replaced. My steak was delicious, made the way I asked, and Turkish rice was good too.More

From London and staying in BA at the beginning of our S.American tour we found the service as average as K. restaurants in the U.K. and the food no better. Yes,the meat was fine but the overall experience, the poor garnishes the confused waiter the...difficulty in having the manager organise a Taxi after and we might just as well have been in Golders Green Road where the choice is enormous the aggravation the same but without the air fares. BTW Mishiguine, listed at number 1 is not K albeit serving updated jewish food.More

It was so delicious that we didn't even had the chance to take pictures if the food. We went alone and with the family, to tell the truth everytime we travel to Argentina this restaurant it's our favorite, the taste of the steaks are delicious....Great service, big portions and great chips. Priced average for a Kosher food and tasty. Love this salads too.More

Family of 5 ordered a whole Parrillada which was plenty. The garlic and parsley fries were delicious as was the fresh salad. Great kosher fare but be prepared to pay cash as they don’t take any cards.

Buzzy very Jewish with great steaks and bbq. Cheap Malbec was great. Don't expect 5 star service but we are here twice and would visit weekly if we lived in BA! Atmosphere better at back of restaurant.

Was excited to try Argentinian Steak. We ordered the steak dishes and what came was a piece of meat on our plate. No side dishes other than the French fries we ordered additionally. The above would be fine. I don't mind no frill food. However,...the steak was not cooked to my request so I had to send back. They recooked a new piece but still more overdone then I would have liked. Again, not the biggest deal in the world but the steak itself was nothing special. It tasted similar to what I get at home in the USA.It was not bad and was fine. Just, nothing special. Also, I am not sure what the deal is with the kosher establishments but they dont seem to take credit cards which can be very inconvenient. On the plus side, it was not terribly expensive.Overall, an average experience. Also, I wish they had a website or a telephone that some actually picks up so i could have asked in advance about the credit card or to confirm their hours.More
