Definitely not a trendy place (for a trendy parrilla go to Don Ferro, across the street). Food is ok, the quality of the beef is average (not exceptional) and service has deteriorated. Old school waiters seemed to have gone away (probably they became too costly) and the new child-like ones are inattentive or completely incompetent. Prices are a bit high... More

Went to El Viejo Balcon for lunch and had without question the best steak I have ever had in Argentina or many other countries. Cooked perfectly! Would highly recommend this restaurant for any meal.

Our first night in Rosario. Beautiful summer evening on their very nice outdoor terrace. Pretty casual. Good waiter, fantastic steak, great wine adds up to a fine experience.

This is a very good tradicional BBQ restaurant, I have eaten here regularly and have yet to be disappointed. The one downside could be the waiting staff, some can be a but rude and in a hurry. But, that at times is argentine labor.

Steaks are great and made for sharing! Pasta is average at best...if you go, go for the Steaks and a nice bottle of wine. Nice convenient location

Nice place and very good food. Plates are huge. If you go with old people or with problems to walk, there are stairs. If you have to go upstairs it is difficult to climb.

This was by far the best steak we tasted in Argentina, if not ever! The atmosphere in the restaurant is fantastic and the waiters are very friendly. Steaks are huge (big enough for two people) and in my opinion, best served with the delicious salad and a good bottle of malbec! On our first visit, we tried the mar de... More
