During our stay in Cape Town we had dinner at Don Armando. It is a small but lively restaurant. From the menu we chose "The Don"; classic Argentinian beef, dry-aged. Highly recommended for red meat lovers. It was offered on a hot plate with crispy fries next to it and tasted wonderful with the chimichurri sauce, which was served separately in a jug. For dessert we tried the "Argentinian flan" with caramel and cinnamon, which we also appreciated.

A two floored restaurant with dining available on a small balcony if preferred. The menu choices are great and the value for money is exceptional, but more importantly the cooking of the steaks is authentic and tasty. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The house malbec is perfect with steak. If I was staying longer in Cape Town, I would be back tommorow. I half expected 3 Gauchos to walk in while we ate. I must visit if you like your meat.

Due to the mixed reviews, I was unsure about booking. A fantastic evening - ignore the bad reviews! The experience and meal was flawless. The steaks (picanha and fillet on the bone) were excellent and the sides (especially their onion rings) were wonderful. The venue is cosy and the staff friendly and attentive. Portions are generous - good value for money. Looking forward to going back soon.

We attended as a family of seven, to a lovely little restaurant, A large number of items on the menu wasn’t available due to being sold out even though we were seated at 20.00 hrs, which as disappointing. We ordered other options that arrived and was amazing, easily some of the best steak we had ever had, truly stunning. Afternoon our food we received the bill and paid in full we tipped the waitress in cash, she then counted it in front of us and then complained that it wasn’t quite 10% and wanted more!!! Really rude and spoilt the evening.

Steaks are cooked correctly as ordered but decidedly average in taste, nothing like the flavour of the Argentinian Steakhouse we tried in London. Only Fillet steaks can be ordered as 200g size, all Sirloin or Ribeye are 300g. Prices are higher than the far better tasting steaks at NV80 in Sea Point or Hussars in Mouille Point or City Grill at the V&A Waterfront or Magica Roma in Pinelands.

Don Armando's is blessed with happy, friendly staff who know their stuff. The meat comes exactly as you order it. I had a wonderful medium steak and I've never had better. It even came with the hot mustard I was craving. The lamb and the salads are also worth commendation. We took the advice of the waiter on our red wine and it was a terrific pairing. Don Armando's was so good we returned twice while we were in Cape Town.

That was the best steak in town, in relation to German prizes a joke. We will visit again and again and again, that much is shure.

A colleague of mine invited me here for dinner. What a find. The food, service and ambiance are just amazing. It's not cheap (but also not that expensive) but I can highly recommend it.

Very friendly crew, offering very good meat. We had lamb as well as sirloin steak, very soft and grilled medium at point. Also sides, like spinach and salad and fries are very delicious with homemade salsas. Good wine offers as well. We came without reservation at peak season and got a table.
