Description: It was established in 2002 with a clear concept of Parrilla-Cantina, the best home cooking from Buenos Aires with a great taste. There was not another place with such proposal. The gratitude of the people was evident and definitive. It is de kind of reliable restaurant. It never fails, a real solution when is time to choose a good place to eat out. It is a good, modern, warm and lovely environment, open to the public, wide spectrum. It is a familiar place, for medium or big friend tables, couples and lonely clients. The cutlery is constantly rotating thanks to an instructed and oiled service. La Dorita announces. People call more people. They already know what they are going to look for, the best meat, made with great care. It is presented stylishly and without pretentious, the dishes of red-hot iron leaned on planks, land over the table offering a warm moment,whetting your appetite. The portions are abundant. The detail of the color is the typical penguins and a bottle where the wine comes from wineries of first quality, served from barrels in full view of everyone. The home-made desserts are the perfect close of the service, dynamic and kind. La Dorita offers a good relation between quality-price and that is how, the restaurant gaing fidelity with the reliable clients. These characteristics become this restaurant into a place where you can go daily. The client is satisfied. La Dorita is the best option to eat well every day.

“Reasonably Priced "Non-Touristy" Parrilla”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

I ate dinner at this restaurant one evening last month. I wanted to go to a "local" reasonably priced parrilla that was within easy walking distance of my hotel. I am not fluent in Spanish which was a modest problem despite them having an English menu.
They were out of the garlic mash potatoes that I had ordered but the grilled veggies were an acceptable alternative. The steak was well prepared and tasty and the service was reasonable.
I thought that I got a sampling of a "neighborhood" parrilla that was reasonably priced.

“Good Parilla”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

Parrilla La Dorita is a good Parrilla overall (3 1/2 stars, better than average). All the grilled meats (pork bondiola, ribs, skirt steak) we had were well cooked and seasoned. The spinach with olive oil and garlic was excellent, as was the grilled pepper and it was nice that the vegetable side dishes were delicious in their own right and not an after thought as often happens at Parrillas.

Service was very good and the ambience was comfortable.

Last, but not least, the is a good selection of wines and great prices.

“Nice place average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

Place was full and close so we gave it a try salads were nice but the steak was like rubber and we only ate half of it. Atmosphere was friendly however probably would not go again.

“a typical mid-level steak restauran”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Parrilla La Dorita at Humboldt 1905 is a typical mid-level steak restaurant. The quality of the food and service is good, although the meat is not outstanding by local standards, and the restaurant can be noisy and crowded. This is a good place to go if you don’t want to spend a lot, but do want to get a bit of local flavor.
