Hello, La Retirada is located in the heart of Palermo Hollywood in Buenos Aires. You can have there excellent meat and the service is very good. Prices are ok for the service and the place is really nice for friends and couples. I went there for Valentine´s Day and we had an excellent time!. Warm place and nice garden outside.

From Argentina, Buenos Aires,
Roman!

Try the "chorizo envuelto". Don´t know how to say it in english but is like the cow sausage rolled inside dough

Monday nights seems to be night off for a lot of BsAs restos. We arrived on a Monday evening from Mendoza and after walking around we ended up in this place. We ordered a lomo (tenderloin) each only to be told that they didn't have any. We then ordered an Entrana (skirt steak) and a ojo de bife (rib eye). Only half the order came back correct as I received a striploin instead of my rib eye. Worst even though it was cooked medium rare and beautifully ruby red, the damn thing was tough. They were more interested in directing me towards the most expensive red, white or sparkling. When you are hungry and tired you tend not to be somewhat more indifferent I expect; but certainly would avoid this place in future.

Just steps from the Nuss hotel La Retirada serves up huge dishes of meat cooked to perfection. The portions are very large and if you have a small stomach, you may wish to share with your partner

We went for new year's day...which was unseasonably cold, so they got their heaters going on the patio. Food was excellent...my "breast of pork" "pechuga de cerdo" may have been the best pork i have ever eaten! Good wine list. Atmosphere very nice...especially when they turned down, and then off, the Michael Jackson music blaring over the loudspeakers. We wish we had gone back...excellent price-quality ratio.

Have been to this resto twice already, friday and saturday to be specific (taking into account another comment from a reviewer) and both the food and service have been excellent. The resto is located in a quiet street, just a few steps off the buzz from the important intersections on Palermo Soho neighbourhood. Not only the beef is of excellent quality, cooked to perfection but the wine to. We were suggested by our Colombian waiter, Trumpeter which was a perfect combination for the food we ordered, dessert included. Although we went on a friday during the busiest days in december, the place was not crowded. Having arrived closed to 10 pm, we left passed 1 am and had a complimentary glass of champagne to celebrate our wonderful dinner.
