We stopped in for dinner on our first night in Buenos Aires because El Establo was a short walk from our hotel, and we couldn't have been happier we stumbled upon it. During our visit it wasn't crowded, and we enjoyed great service from the waitstaff as well as an incredible meal. The empanadas we ordered to start were fantastic, the bife de chorizo was perfectly cooked, the fries were delicious, and we really enjoyed the bottle of Malbec we paired with it. Portion sizes were bigger than expected, so you won't leave hungry! It's a great local place and a wonderful introduction to Argentinian parrillas. Prices were affordable as well, so we felt like our experience was a great value as well as a great meal.

Great food, good service and interesting atmosphere. I tried the "ojo de bife", spectacular and grilled with perfection. An excellent wine list. The place is old fashioned. Most clients are Argentinians in a family atmosphere. Prices rather high and you have to pay for the "cubierto"

If you are in Retiro or Recoleta head for El Establo, a typical Argentinian restaurant.

You will find a freezing air conditioning, excellent barbeque and the best "mozos/waiters" in town. Matambrito con puré or ojo de bife, you will not be disappointed. You can share the portions are big. And non-alcoholic beer, too!

Good food in the traditional Argentinian fashion. I tried the bife chorizo and was excellent. The attention is good and very Argentinian .

The restaurant we were looking for was closed - it was New Year’s Day, and a lady directed us here - she took the trouble to walk us down to El Establo in case we missed it- and it was a great dinner - my steak was excellent, and the wine was also great and the price was modest. The kitchen is open and busy, and the clientele are local I would guess. Nobody seems to speak English - so it was a bit of pot luck - my 500g steak was at least 1kg, and the wine the waiter delivered was a cheaper (and probably better) one than I ordered- but it all worked out well. Very happy.
