One of the most exceptional meals I had in Buenas Aires,The service was solid but ultimately it was just about the atmosphere. Being able to sit on the sidewalk on a warm Argentine evening was spectacular. The quality of the beef was superb and although...mine was a little overcooked it was still wonderful. Sharing bottles of wine with my friends we ended up making new friends. Very affordable for the experience you receive. Excellent Chimmichurri sauce to enhance the flavors of that good good Argentine beef. I cant wait to come back.More

La Cabrera was the easily the best parrilla we visited in our 2-months in Buenos Aires. The lomo (filet mignon) just melts in your mouth. Surprisingly the prices were reasonable too, given that we paid less than $25 for 4 cuts of filet. In addition,...the provoleta completa and "free" side dishes were amazing. Unlike many of the parrillas we visited, these guys are not afraid to salt and season their dishes, which takes the food to a new level of deliciousness. Thank You!More

I really expected More of this place, La Cabrera. My first visit, a Lot of Time ago, was very different ...Now, I did not liked so much. Not a very good attention, and finally: veeeeryy expensive. Specially the wines. No, no no. Sorry!

If you are planning on a later meal in the evening - definitely make reservations several days in advance. If you are planning on a dinner tonight, consider going to their happy hour (6:30-8:00 pm). You need to arrive earlier, say 15 minutes to get...a seat, as the restaurant is small, but they lower the prices 30%. Come later, with no reservation, and you'll only get to watch people eat - they are always busy and full. They have a wide variety on the menu and wine list. Portions are large, especially what ever type of meat you order (we chose the beef tenderloin and got 4 good size portions of filet mignon on the skewer). Unless you eat a very large meal, waiters will often suggest ordering one meal for two - after seeing the portions of meat and all the trimmings it comes with, I'd definitely agree. Service is quick, efficient and our server was quite friendly even with our communication difficulties. Definitely recommend when you're in Buenos Aires. We would not hesitate in going back.More

We were told it would be expensive. We were told the food would be great. One of those would prove to be correct and the other NOT AT ALL. We waited 15 minutes for a seat. The lady out the front was EXCEPTIONAL. She had...great customer service skills and was managing quite a queue of potential diners. We were encouraged. Everything looked promising. We were hungry and looking forward to excellent steaks. We got in and prepared to order. Four of us ordering - two were ordering the full serve of Entrana (I think thats how its pronounced) and then two were going to share the 400g Sirloin steak and have a green salad with it. We were advised that we should order a second Sirloin because the bone was in. When it all arrived we had VASTLY over ordered. The steaks were big. Mine was ordered Medium Rare but arrived RARE. It was quite dim, and I thought to myself, "it will be more tender this way and I cant see the raw meat". But then I started to cut into it - with a sharp, steak knife, I could hardly cut it, it was so full of tough sinew and fat. It was tasty but it was so chewy that gradually I became angry and just gave up. I ate the salad instead, leaving all but a few bites of the steak on my plate. The two that had ordered the Entrana are BIG eaters but couldn't finish their meals. No one asked what was wrong with our meals. We were all disappointed, and when the waitress asked for the tip to be paid in CASH I used all of my self control not to get angry with her, but politely told her - "No tip - the meat was not good" - no further discussion was offered. We later were told that we were tourists and treated accordingly - VERY DISAPPOINTING.More

DO NOT COME HERE !!!!!!!! This place is a tourist rip off restaurant. Waiter smiled at me as I complained about price for average food as I explained I would tip him better if the food was better. He had been trained to smile at...me as if I was complimenting the food even though I was telling him I was tipping him less. The “French Fries” were like Tesco frozen cooked in old oil - they charged £5 for these. The steak was average. I can cook better than that. The breads and dips were nothing special (olives were nice). They gave me an average half bottle of wine when I asked only for a glass of wine. Charged about £12. This is high by BA standards. I should have refused to pay the bill but like a decent English mug I paid it and am still fuming that I did so. I would have given the staff a bigger tip ( I gave just over 10% while I normally give 15/20%) and am really annoyed that the restaurant owners will get their full rip off whack at the expense of the working staff. I should have taken a stand and not paid the requested bill. Anyway. Verdict - THIS PLACE HAS HAD ITS DAY. There are better and cheaper restaurants and better and more expensive, but worth it, than this. AVOID AT ALL COSTS and try and influence other websites such as Lonely Planet.More

Everything about La Cabrera was fantastic! We sampled the torta Espanola, the homemade pasta, the Caprese salad, and two different cuts of beef, both of which were perfectly cooked. The wait staff was incredibly kind and patient with our half English - half Spanish dialogue....The portions are huge - We got half portions of most of the above and still couldn’t finish any one of them. Highly recommended!More

This place came highly recommended and did not disappoint. We ordered the 600g Steak and could have easily fit a little more in. Came with loads of garnishes and side dishes, the fries were a little small, serving two I’d say. Meat was perfectly cooked...(Rare) and while the service wasn’t quite 5 star, it was prompt. Price was about £20 each between 4, including a bottle of wine, beer and water. Highly recommendMore
