Description: Cabaña Las Lilas, located in the heart of Puerto Madero, is a restaurant that combines the tradition of Argentinean meat with Brazilian warmth and hospitality. The venue was established in 1995 in a joint venture between Belarmino Fernández Iglesias, owner of the well-known restaurant chain Rubaiyat in São Paulo, and Estancias y Cabaña Las Lilas S.A., a 4th generation family business specializing in the breeding of the best livestock in Argentina and the Americas. The selection of the best raw material, together with an impeccable service, has turned Cabaña Las Lilas into a world-class restaurant visited by the most demanding gastronomes. The prestigious American newspaper “The New York Times” has even named it as one of the 10 best restaurants worldwide. Distinguished continuously since 2007 with the wine spectator award.

Great location along side the port, attentive waiters with beautiful presentation. Good selection of cuts of beef disappointingly sinewy and tough but the extra sweets and beautiful limoncello more than made up for the extra chewing!

A great restaurant - service was knock out and the steak was fantastic.

Add a great location with a nice view over the port and it is a winner.

Ok it is pricey for Argentina but we spent approx 100GBP on a meal for two, that included the excellent bread cover (this doesn't do it justice - it was delicious), steak, two sides, coffee and several drinks. Pricey but not a real wallet buster.

Final tip - the coffee comes with a generous helping of petits fours that were really nice. An inexpensive desert option and the coffee is, unsurprisinly, also great.

The restaurant is placed in a really atmosphere location.
Food is great, best meat eaten in whole Argentina!
Unfortunately it is very expensive, even if it would be in a European city!

My curiosity with Cabaña Las Lilas came from my desire to try the famous Kobe Beef, andyes, it is a very good Beef.
What made the Kobe different is that it has points os fat inside de fibers, waht makes the beef more tender and sooo tasty. Simply like this. But it makes also the beef more fatty and less healthy. So you can go to try other dishes, cheaper then Kobe, and make a cheaper meal.
The service was PERFECT, and I love to write this about the service of a restaurante because I think this is the most importante parte of the job, since good food you can get in more places.
I said perfect because ALL staff was respectful and polite and even a problem we had with our credit card was solved quickly.
Ate the end, You can ask the hostess to call a taxi (which I strongly recommend for security reasons), and wait few minutes in th lobby bar.
It all together makes you few comfortable and satisfied, despite the money spent.
