“Good food,shame about the wait at the end of the meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

Good steak (if you want anything else skip it) and a decent if slightly corporate atmosphere. The service was also good..to start with - the meal was ruined somewhat by having to wait 40 mins to get the bill!

“Not much too add. Everyone knows this place is great.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Everyone says this place is great. Do you know what. Everyone is right.. Steaks- The best!! Remember. The steaks are large. Get a tenderloin. - (about 500-600 grams, A bit over a pound- no fat and no bones) You can share it. Just get a salad- share it also. At first it seems relatively expensive- but it really isn't. The steak is worth it. Also the empanadas are great- if you have the room to eat all of this. It's worth it. Also, It is open all afternoon, unlike most places in Buenos Aires.

“Good steak and service in a slightly bizarre location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

I wanted to get a quick steak dinner before my Tango show (I skipped the dinner option there given the lukewarm reviews...) so I headed to Mirasol because it was recommended by my hotel, Casa Calma. It took a while to find due to its odd location under and underpass... The atmosphere is slightly "corporate hotel" like but the service was very attentive and they managed to get me out within an hour, as I requested (even though I think the old Argentinian server thought I was a crazy woman for rushing).
I had the lomo steak (tenderloin) with a "quarter" macrobiotic salad which was huge and included an entire avocado. The steak was good and a nice size (not too enormous - I nearly ate the whole thing) but not quite as good as Don Julio's in Palermo.
Worth a trip if you're in the area!

“Great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

My husband and I both agree that of all the steak meals we had in Buenos Aires, the one served here was #1! The steaks were seasoned and cooked to perfection and the service was very attentive. We visited the restaurant on our first night in Buenos Aires and found ourselves comparing all other restaurants we visited during our trip to this one.

“Top food and ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

The provolone was a delight as a starter, the rib eye delicious, the salad generous and tasty, and the 'dulce de leche' heaven. Would definitely recommend it!
