Visiting the restaurant with my family we were shock to find such of quality "argentinian" style place.
The meat was cook to perfection, the service was superb, and the wine list outstanding.
A place to go!!!

Food at this Argentian restauarant was excellent, they had the authentic meat grill cooking. Meat was tender and delicious. My friends really enjoyed their steaks. Wine can be hit and miss although bit expensive. Service was nothing special unless you were with an Argentinean friend. It isn't the best of locations as it's hidden away in Farringdon.

As my partner is from Buenos Aires and we live in London, I've experienced a good number of the Argentinian restaurants that London has to offer - and I think this one is the best. We keep coming back here and I don't think I've ever been disappointed.

The restaurant itself is elegant and comfortable. The asador and parrilla (fire pit and barbeque) are in full view behind a transparent screen. The location isn't ideal - it's on a rather dark and not particularly attractive back street, but it's not far from Farringdon station.

Food here isn't exactly cheap, but I'd say it's cheaper than Gaucho and on a par with other Argentinian restaurants in London, so pretty reasonable really. The food is great - you can order typical Argentinian favourites like flank steak, short ribs, skirt steak, sweetbreads and blood sausage - or stick to the more familiar sirloin, rib-eye and sausages if you prefer. The mixed grills to share are very good. There are a few vegetarian options but the focus is definitely on meat. The cassava with cheese (and optionally chorizo) is very good as a starter.

There's a good selection of wines, the ubiquitous Argentinian malbecs are there, but some more unusual Argentinian wines are available too. Some good desserts too, obviously almost all of them involving dulce de leche...

Service is generally good and quite friendly - not the best I've seen, but I don't have any complaints.

All in all, one of my favourite restaurants and somewhere I'll keep coming back to.
