This was my first experiance in a "close-door-restaurant" and i must say it was a realy nice evening. We spent the evening with two other couples and enyoyed a five course dinner - the best asado dinner in our 5 days in BA. I can...really recomment trying Luis steaks!More

The closed-door restaurant was a foreign concept to us and sounded intriguing when I saw it on TripAdvisor. There were two other couples who joined us so it was interesting meeting new people. We were at the end of our two week trip in northern...Patagonia so had tried nearly everything already somewhere else along our journey. But it was nice to have a great variety of offerings all at once between the charcuterie tray, meat appetizers, provoleta, main beef dish, and dessert. The dessert was something new and very tasty. Our provoleta was overcooked and drier than all the others we had eaten over our two weeks in region. The commentary Luis provided was professional and educational and it was nice to be able to go watch the cooking in action. I would recommend the experience to first-timers to BA.More

Our first trip to Buenos Aires, what a beautiful place, made even more memorable and special after an evening meal with Luis and his team, a warm and friendly smile will great you as the large black door is opened and you enter the world...of Luis. From the time we stepped in, to the time we left, we felt welcomed by him, he makes you feel so at home, it seemed as if we were revisiting and meeting up with an old friend. His passion and dedication as a chef is evident as he explains in detail how the evening will proceed, how the food we were going to eat is prepared, cooked, presented and each of the 5 courses pared perfectly with his selected 5 wines. We were seated in pleasant surroundings on a large table along with our new dining friends who were from California, Scotland, Switzerland and Germany, the food and drink was then served and the evening steadily progressed to an enjoyable ‘intoxicating’ event of fun and great conversation with our fellow diners, the ambiance was created brilliantly by Luis and his team’s hosting, the food served and the selection of wines were excellent, but the star of the evening was the ‘STEAK’, which was seasoned and cooked to perfection, by far one of, if not, the best I have tasted. We will not hesitate in booking an evening again with Luis on our return to Argentina. Ray & LynMore

Luis makes the experience incredibly memorable. The entire meal is warm and welcoming starting with sparkling wine and a detailed explanation about the meal to come and origins of the produce and meats. Not only is the food delicious, but the interactive nature of the...meal is what makes it extra special (one of our group members helped to put the sausages on the grill!).

We loved our experience at Luis’ steakhouse. Due to unforeseen circumstances my partner and I were late to our booking. Not a little late but 40 minutes late (totally our fault). When we arrived we were very apologetic. I would have assumed that him and...his staff would have been sour because we were so late however we couldn’t have been further from the truth, he and staff were opening and waiting for us to arrive, the experience was meant to start at 2 and we arrived at 2.40 (this would have been totally I justified as we felt very guilty about this). However our experience was the complete opposite. Luis was very calm, happy and accommodating. He made sure we were calm and settled (we were very hot from running to the restaurant from our Uber) before the food experience started. He made as feel extremely welcomed and was happy to wait until we were comfortable. He was a wealth of knowledge and passion. The entree, steak and dessert were amazing !! Honestly best steak I have had. The wine was paired with the foods perfectly. He has decorated his restaurant beautifully and was happy to chat to us and answer any questions we had. We never felt that we were being pushed out the door even though the session ran later then expected. Very happy and loved our experience here. Great value for money and the communication with staff about times and prices was very easy. We communicated through WhatsApp (wifi) which was easy as we didn’t not have service in Argentina. Would go back in the heartbeat ! What a lovely experience.More

I love Buenos Aires and having had an experience at Steak by Louise make me love Buenos Aires even more. For starter, we walked to the site from Parlemo Soho and it was easy and safe. When we arrived, we saw that there were other...8 dinners present at the sitting area, it was around 8:05 pm. Louise is a wonderful host, he immediately made us feel very welcome. We started with a refreshing sparking wine and made our way to the beautiful dinning room. There were salad, sausages, the steak and dessert. We had steak everyday, sometimes 2x a day here and my steak was cooked to perfection - medium rare - perfectly pink and seasoned just right. The steak was tasty and full of the umani taste - naturally sweetness of a good piece of meat - that I did not want to use any other sauce with it. The music, the tango dancing and the singing were so good. The experience was intimate and special. I must say that my fellow dinners are really fun folks, well travels Andrew interesting to talk to which make the entire experience even more special. The wine was so good, the dry torrontes, the special Malbec and a beautiful dessert wine - we bought 6 bottles and yes, we walked back to our hotel carrying it because it was such a beautiful night.More

I’m an Englishman who lives in New York and this was my first time to Argentina. Hablo un poco espanyol but that’s didn’t matter, Luis and his team were amazing and made me feel like I was dining amongst lifelong friends. The whole experience is...just amazing. Asado is not just about food, or indeed a specific cut of beef, it is about sharing in an experience with friends and family. The whole atmosphere was so welcoming and so much fun. Nothing is forced, it is incredibly relaxed and inviting. From the sparkling wine on arrival, to the food, to the ambience, everything has been perfectly thought out and delivered. Luis and his team obviously have incredible knowledge on Argentinian cuisine, steak, wines, and the dishes that compliment the main event (beautiful steak) and the experience. They are lovely people, who are genuinely committed to making sure you have the most wonderful experience. The steak. THE. STEAK! It is incredible. You don’t need to look at anything else, anywhere else. It is beautiful, the quality of meat, the precision of the cooking, the integrity of the ingredients. Just perfect I will come back to Buenos Aires just for this. I am well travelled, plenty of experience e in Asia, South Africa, US and South America - this could contend for my favourite culinary experience that I’ve ever had. Don’t hesitate! Book this experience and I am certain you will leave Buenos Aires with the same wonderful memories that I now have too! Luis - thank you truly my friend! Just perfect!More

My husband and I decided to taste Luis' kitchen as our last dinner in Buenos Aires during our honeymoon. Steak by Luis offers not only a typical and excellent dinner, made by fresh and local products, meat and wine, but a real Argentinian experience! During...the night Luis guides his guests through the parilla ritual with sense of humor and letting everyone feeling at home. The food, starting from the picada, the typical appetizers, to the wonderful meat and finishing with a sublime dessert is really worth of and the local wines Luis suggest and offers to his guests are absolutely fantastic. No doubt, go and taste this great Argentinian experience!More

Where else would you meet people that had spent time kayaking in the south of Argentina sipping whisky chilled from glazier ice or those that had interviewed large company CEOs while discussing economic inequality?
