Walked by this place out sightseeing and knew I was coming for dinner. Lamb is roasting over an open pit fire in the window of the restaurant. Most people were eating steaks but I ordered the lamb and the portion was huge and meat incredibly tender. Staff was very friendly and had a great dinner. A bit more expensive then I'd have liked due to no wine by glass. (Bought a 1/2 bottle as the lamb needed it)

Great restaurant with wide selection of BBQ meats & nice atmosphere. Lots of animal heads on the walls. There is a stuffed bull & horse at the entry with a stepping stool for patrons to climb aboard. Quite cheap too.

We had a recommendation from our hotel to visit this restaurant. As soon as I arrived, I knew it was fate... since I grew up on a Hereford cattle ranch in Texas. The food was very tasty and we enjoyed a complimentary espumada (which was nice after walking around BA all day!) we really enjoyed La Chacra!

La Chacra is worth a visit for an excellent Argentinean experience. The restaurant is filled with hunting trophies and character, the waiters are helpful and dressed in formal gear, and the best yet...Argentinean steaks. Superb steaks, cooked to perfection, as you ordered. Whilst not cheap, La Chacra offera excellent value for the experience. We went back, on our return trip via Buenos Aires

Looking in from street, the restaurant looked promising. Inside is a large hall with what seems to be industrial lighting. Place was 25% full, but still over 100 seats empty. Steaks were just ok, not what you want in BA.
