Our second time back and were not disappointed. Chose VVACIO Argentine Steak MEDium rare, Flank steaks, nd chicken .everything was cooked perfectly and the house Malbec was only 240 Peso s for a bottle. Service was friendly and efficient. Has to be one of the better ArgentinIan places in PIC.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, sampling several of the items from the menu. The flank steak was prepared perfectly, the side of grilled vegetables was varied and plentiful, the mashed potatoes were delicious and the empanadas were fabulous.
This is a rather small restaurant inside but it gives you the view of the grill and the freshness of the food. Service was terrific especially given that they were filled to capacity outside due to a soccer game.

Just tried this place on our trip. 5/2013. Walked past a million times. Introduced to the place by a local friend. Always a good lead. The food and service are very good for quality, quantity and price. Staff very attentive. Clean, nice ambience including an air conditioned interior. A variety of steaks. Beef empanadas huge and delicious with an herb olive oil garnish. Went back twice this trip.. Yum!

I ordered a medium cooked new york steak , got it overcooked.
The waiters where rude not only to me. I saw them spill whine on anther guests shirt and then laugh about it.
I would never go to el diez again.

Very good argentinean cuts, very nice dishes and food layout.
The cuts are argentinean originals, they do fulfill the requests regarding the cooking point for the meat.
We were a bunch of 15 people, argentinean, swedish, americans and serbians. The service is not that great, unfortunately: when we got there, they were super attentive towards us, and gave us very good advice to our dish choices. When the time to pay came, they complained because they considered that 10% tip was not the right amount, and the waiter requested a minimum of 15%. Totally unexpected for a country were the tip is not included and not mandatory!
Besides, the prices were a little high all in all.
