Excellent service, wonderful owners and staff. The food is consistently very good, excellent steaks cooked over a charcoal fire inthe restaurant. Nice atmosphere and great location just near the cathedral. We love going there!

Went to the el bife in the april of 2013 after finding it in the trip advisor. We hadn't reserved a table, even that doing so was recommended due to the popularity of the place, as we weren't sure about when we would manage to be there. Even though, the staff found us a table.

The waiter's English were flawless and he was very friendly, cheerful and helpful. The steaks were awesome. Perfectly prepared and perfectly served.

An irrelevant, but cool, fact was that the owner of the place had worked for years in Greece (my home country), so he sat with us and we had a chat in greek :-)

We went to this restaurant, based on the ratings and reviews of Tripadvisor. And those were right! A nice, cosy but design looking restaurant in the middle of the old city center of Antwerp. Delicious smells of grilled steaks welcome you by entering the restaurant.

The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The food was great. A nice steak, baked exactly as you asked, served with fresh baked bread, toppings, a nice salad and a baked peel potato or Flemish fries.

just back from a trip with 12 other guys. the weekend started with the most amazing meal we have all said we have ever had. the steaks were out of this world, and the staff could not be faulted on any part of the service. amazing value and quite unbelievable steaks. I don't know if this is normal in Belgium, but I must say ive never seen steaks so big and so tasty. top top marks to the chef for cooking all our steaks to perfection, from med rare to well done, all were exactly as we asked and brought out at same time. 11 out of 10 for this restaurant, it simply can not be faulted. great communications from Barbra pooters prior to our arrival. If you want a good steak at a fantastic price, GO HERE!!!! we are going back to Antwerp same time next year, and cant wait to return to El Bife top marks to all the staff.

Wow, this Argentinian restaurant delivers what you expect! I have never had a proper size and cooked steak like this in Europe, a full +750g (1.5lbs) beautiful piece of meat, perfectly cooked. The place is run and staffed by Latin Americans, and they do it with a smile a great service.
Amazing value for money as well, with the largest steak only 27 Euro.
Couple all this with a Belgian beer on the side and you have a perfect evening, I WILL GO BACK.
