Meat is the main option on the menu, not a lot of vegetables on offer. There are potatoes and a few salads. It is packed with locals by 8 p.m. when it opens for dinner, so get there early to get a seat. They have some tables on the sidewalk as well as seating inside with fans. The service is very attentive and friendly we found. We were the only tourists the night we went, and everyone was nice and helpful. The menu is in Espanol only, so it helped we had a glossary of the different types of meats. There was three of us, we shared a caprese salad, one order of potatoes, a bottle of wine, a large beer, full order of beef tenderloin, 1/2 order of flank steak and our bill was $34 CAD! We had leftover beef to take home for lunch the next day. Very reasonable prices for an International city. The beef was tasty, though overcooked if you like medium rare, it is very difficult to get it in Argentina.

Situated in Villa Crespo just blocks from Palermo, this unpretentious neighborhood restaurant does not get many tourists but it does get packed every night around 8pm. The steaks are delicious - some of the best bife de chorizo I've had in BA. The quality of the meat is excellent, the portions are huge and they grill it to perfection. The sides (salad, fries, grilled provolone, etc) are all good and large. All at an excellent price.

We ate here twice. The meat is good and the quality/price is excellent. We also enjoyed the service and the atmosphere. If you are nearby and want to eat asado, we recommend it.

Try the grilled provoleta (provolone cheese - photo) - Crispy and tender
And do not miss bondiola or entraña, two great meat cuts. Careful, servings are generous.
Worth returning
