“Argentinian restaurant - great food, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

We were the first to arrive at 7.00 p.m. By the time we had finished our meal, the restaurant was full with all tables taken and with people having drinks on the pavement tables outside waiting for a table inside to become free - not bad for a midweek night! The well thought out varied lighting and the buzzy atmosphere added to the enjoyment of the occasion. Clearly this restaurant is popular.

The service was professional, attentive and personable even when the restaurant was busy. We were given advice about menu choices as well as advice about the wines in an unpretentious way and not recommending the most expensive wines!

Of course all the dishes are Argentinian specialities. For starters we had Beef Empanada and Beef Carpaccio. The bread was attractively presented in a wooden box. For main courses we chose Fillet steaks (£25.95 each) one medium to well done and the other medium rare. The steaks were of excellent quality and cooked exactly as ordered. One had the dessert special Passion Fruit Sorbet which tasted excellent. Overall a very enjoyable meal.

The total bill for two people which included an excellent bottle of wine (£29.95 - wines available from £20.95 per bottle) and12.5% service came to £125.

“worth seeking out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by a local and we had an excellent meal - we chose the shared menu after taking advice from the restaurant - as there were 7 of us. Even then we could manage to eat all the wonderful meat cooked for us. Good Argentinian wine too and great atmosphere. Reasonably priced too.

“Steak and garlic, yum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

Delivers just what it should, great steak and garlic topped chips. Many meals here and the staff have always managed to accommodate the changing numbers in our party. A good reliable steak in central London.

“Excellent spot for meat !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

I have been watching out for a nice place to eat meat in London for quite some time. I was really glad when I recently got this recommendation.

Staff is friendly and I was able to order very quickly. The provolone came in small frying pan - excellent taste and I enjoyed it very much. Shortly thereafter my lomo was brought and it was grilled to the right point !

Excellent food - nice spot - I certainly will return. The wine list had a couple of excellent Argentinean wines on it.

“Delightful Argentinian Steakhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

Wide choices on the menu for both starters and mains. The steaks are all from Argentina, as is the wine. The steaks were delicious - we had the rib-eye, which was recommended by the waiter. He was Italian and charming. Service was good. Malbec was excellent, but you'd expect that from the most expensive half-bottle in the list (only one drinker in the group). Sweets were tasty and the total bill (£158 for three people) did not seem unreasonable for this quality of restaurant in the middle of Connaught Village. Incidentally, they also have a private dining room downstairs (seats 12), which there aren't many of around here.
