All you can eat salad bar, great steaks & an English menu, this place hit the spot. Not fancy but great value. Good for a group. Oh, & the wine was excellent value!

We dined here several years ago and remembered the lovely evening we enjoyed dinner. We had pork ribs & rib-eye steak with a bottle of Alamos Malbec wine. There's a fantastic salad-bar that's included when you orde from the main menu. The atmosphere andsoft-music is...relaxing - just what we needed after a fill day sightseeing. Our waitress was excellent & our food delicious. We'll be back again.More

A group of 10 of us went to this restaurant midweek. It was pretty quiet save for a bunch of NZ Sky Sports presenters (some of which were ex All Blacks). If you want a great steak and an endless salad bar, decent Malbec and...a cheap night our grab some friends and go here! Thanks Jeff Wilson, Justin Marshall and Grant Nisbett for a good laugh after dinner.More

As part of a conference I was involved in organizing, we took a group of about 25 colleagues for a group dinner to Juana M and had a wonderful experience. Staff were very attentive, food was plentiful and delicious (especially the desserts!) Very moderately priced...as well, a very good value for the quality provided (you can go to fancier restaurants nearby, but you'll pay a lot more for them!). Our group really enjoyed the atmosphere as well - high vaulted ceilings, white walls and furniture, big modern art...even though it was very modern which can sometimes feel a little cool and distant, there was also a wonderfully relaxed and welcoming feeling to the whole place as well. Best of all, the owner, Juana M. herself was extremely attentive, visiting each table in the restaurant to make sure that everyone was well taken care of, even helping to make some accommodations for our group. True Argentine hospitality!More

We got served raw meat (not Argentine rare, which I love, but really blue raw) and told the waiter about it. He didn't do anything and they charged us for the meal. Also, the other dish we ordered smelled like old, spoiled meat. After all...that, the owner was called, but not only didn't do anything about it, he also started offended my wife and me. Awful place.More

Dinner that night was just down the street from the hotel, in a restaurant called Juana M. We walked over and down a flight of stairs into the cellar of the building where the restaurant is located. We entered into a large, long room, all...in white, with a bar in the front and white tables in the back. Main dishes were ordered from a menu, and of course we had beef. Since we were earlier than most people are here in Buenos Aires, there was an empty long table next to us. But within a few minutes the waitstaff had filled it with all sorts of salads and side dishes. We got to go up and help ourselves to whatever we wanted. All the different salads were actually my favorite part.  We had good wine, good food and even better company. More

Went with a large group, many from abroad, many locals, for a dinner for about 20 people. They opened the restaurant on a Monday for us and provided a huge square-ish table towards the back of the restaurant, which was good for the group. They...did allow other customers to come in, though they were towards the front so we didn't "bother" each other. We got their salad bar and "sides" bar - a nice variety of salads to choose from and some cooked sides like roasted veggies of different types, croquettes, etc. - and a choice of a grilled meat dish or pasta. Most had the beef, the majority choosing the "ojo de bife" (eye of round) steak. Mine was delicious and they did a very good job of bringing the steaks out cooked right to the degree that each diner had requested. This is not a minor achievement, especially in Buenos Aires, where the beef is extraordinarily good, but the local taste is towards the overcooked! Mine was rare and just right! I had to leave before dessert, so no comments on that!More

I live in Buenos Aires for six months out of the year. I have gone to Juana M many times. Tonight I went and used my Club La Nacion card, which gives members a 20% discount, but I was told they would not recognize it....I appealed to management and was told the same, even though the discount was advertised on La Nacion's site. Only after a lengthy argument, was I given the discount. This unnecessary stress is not worth going back.More

After reading mixed reviews I was a bit anxious about returning to this place after several years and with a group of colleagues. There was no need to worry. The others were taken with the ambience - classy and comfortable, impressed with the extensive choices...at the salad bar, which is included when one orders off the menu (but not sharing), but can be paid for as a meal in itself - ideal for vegetarians. The menu was in Spanish and English and the service was pleasant and helpful - in English. All but one of us had one of the melt-in-your-mouth, way-too-big steaks on the menu. Some of the more sensible ones took half of it back to the hotel for the next day while the rest of us couldn't stop eating until it was gone. The colleague who had fish was very pleased with her meal. One person sent her steak back to have it heated more. A great selection of wines at a variety of prices. And best of all, it is affordable compared to many other well-known restaurants downtown.More

Excellent food in a very cozy environment. The menu is topical Argentinian bbq along with milanesas, empanadas, and a lavish salad bar. The place is located in a basement of an old traditional colonial house.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
