We had a really good Bife de Chorizo here. They have Asturian food here, but we did fine on the Argentine steak. As for service being slow, well it is Buenos Aires. BTW, the place is quite beautiful as are many restaurants in BsAs.

Based on Lonely planet review we went there for lunch. But we experienced quite bad service and very very bad food. The menu looks fine and they offer also daily menu but it is not worth the visit. The emptiness of the place should have warned us. I would highly recommend to avoid this place.

The restaurant looked inviting and traditional from the street but it provided a bitterly disappointing experience.

Having ordered sangria, it took just over thirty-five minutes and numerous reminders before our surly and overworked waitress produced it, poor as it was; our paella was a mixture of tasteless pre-cooked rice on which the other ingredients were arranged... it was pretty ghastly and we left most of it.

The service was so abysmal that we had to help ourselves during our meal, something of an art with a miniscule table and tiny shared service table that was cluttered with other diners' dishes.

Try the Museu de Jamon, just around the corner, for a cheaper and truly delicious paella, a good sangria and pleasant and efficient service.

This is a nice restaurant. Waiters are very nice and have a great service attitude. What they do not tell you is that every requirement generates a cost. So if you ask for a particular option they charged you in a criteria that they only know.
Despite that, is a good place for taking a break and pampering yourself.
Is not a daily consumption restaurant but a good place to visit and taste good meals and steaks.

Unique ambiance (if a bit bright), enormous menu, excellent service. Initially tried it as we arrived late into Buenos Aires from Montevideo and it was just down the street from our hotel - ended up coming back a couple times over the next week. The steak was the best I had in Argentina. The wine and dessert selection could be a bit deeper - but overall a great culinary experience!
