If you don't want to shell out too much money and still want to eat a good steak, this is the place where you should be heading. It's about 30 meters away from plaza Armenia.
At noon, they offer some really good menus. The wine is good too and is affordable. The salad buffet is usually included with the meal, provided you do not take the cheapest options on the menu.

The impressive location and design may misslead. This place isn't what expected. It is a quick service and reasonable salad bar (which is complementary to the main dish) but not more than this. There are many much better to visit in Buenos Aires.

On our visit there were more waitresses/waiters than guests at this restaurant, but they all acted annoyingly disinterested in us and seemed to find it disturbing to have to cut their chit-chat to take orders, answer questions etc. You felt like as a guest you were a bother to them, and therefore the place has an unfriendly feel to it. In addition to this I got a pebble in my salad (which i unfortunately chewed on -could have destroyed a tooth!) but no excuse or compensation was given for this on their initiative. When we told them we weren't paying for such a salad they were fine with crossing it off the bill however. Since the waitress did not write down any of our orders we also got an extra dish to the table, whichs adds to the overall bad experience..
I would not recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a nice, joyful and friendly setting to their dinner! Food is ok, but nothing special.

Big place, rush-hour for the staff, no personal attention. Food is not bad but…. we watched the staff cleaning the tables…. combined with the fungus in the breadbasket and our hunger was gone. So, one-time (bad) experience for us! Prices are low relative to other places in the area, but … you get what you pay for.

I a lmyself a meat lover and i found the food at this place very very good! Also, the fact that you get a free salad bar when you order a meal is excelent. The salad bar has a lot of variety and really fresh.
I personally recommend the outside part if it's not too hot!
