Description: "A place where gastronomy, art and culture come together" An Argentinean restaurant in "El Born", Barcelona The restaurant has the appearance of a French bistro, the ambience and decor are part of its charm, but above all, what makes it special and what explains the resounding success is that it is an Argentine restaurant in Barcelona, that offers quality –and price. We offer an extensive menu with meats imported from Argentina, famous for its cut, taste and quality; handmade pastas; pizzas and grilled cheeses (like the famous provolone) . At noon, from Tuesday to Friday, we offer a menu of Mediterranean fusion cuisine, comprising a cream soup followed by a starter ,main course and desserts . Drinks are also included. There are four types of meat on the menu, these include an authentic Argentinean grill called "Criollo", plus another grill from the La Pampa region called "Pampero" and the Patagonian mixed Grill. The restaurant has a few private rooms for groups, located on the main floor. In the cellar, known as "El Foro Club" is a space available for a more intimate dinner or simply to have a drink.

“Great atmosphere and nice food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

We stumbled along, only wanted to go in for a glas of wine and asked after a while for the menu. The food was lovely, not too pricey. Good value overall, however I found as in so many places in Barcelona that some staff was very snappy for no reason. The other waiter was really nice, but overall I can only give a average rating for unfriendly service.

“Superb meat and great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

My wife & I visited Barcelona for a long weekend and on our first night with no idea where to go stumbled upon this gem, the food is delightful especially the steak, the atmosphere is fabulous as well.

Well worth a visit.

“Nice and tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

The starters were great - amazing empanada from carne and provolone cheese, but the 4 cheeses pizza was somewhat disappointing with weird aftertaste that does not fit a restaurant that present itself as 'homemade pizzas and pastas'.
service was lovely and the setting is nice, so all in all it's a nice fair priced Italian cuisine (although the restaurant is Argenetinian)

“The best meat in El Born”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

Located in the middle of El Born district, in Barcelona city old town, this restaurant offers the best argentinian meat at a VERY convenient price. I strongly recommend the "angus". Service 5 stars.

“Great meat!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

Had a very good stake (300gr) of high quality, rested beef. Chef followed up my baking preference very well. Not your typical sophisticated restaurant as there were people with shorts and backpags and all kinds of people who were not exactly dressed for dinner but hey, the food was good especially for that price i did not expected the quality to be good. Service was good as well. You can look into the kitchen which i always see as a plus. Overall; good quality food. Just don't dress up because you will feel awkward.
