The owner "Luis" is an Uruguayan guy dedicated to the art of a real barbecue. Don't expect a fancy and cool restaurant. The star of this restaurant is the quality of the meal!!! Parking is little complicated so go there by a taxi. The neighborhood...More

Always a good sign when a restaurant has many locals eating. The ambiance is fun and colorful. Our Argentinean friend told us how the owner had a small station close by when he first began and everyone called it Pobre Luis (Poor Luis). The lines...More

Good steak, nice place to go but not the best in Buenos Aires.. the prices are ok for food, drinks and dessert. Decoration is very nice with a good view of the parrilla.

Get the sweetbreads. Maybe even get an extra order. They are that good. Everything else parilla-wise is just how you want it to be. We loved this place, would have come back multiple times had we found it sooner !!

The service and atmosphere was really really good, I just can say the meat that was served was really (I'm not a meat lover), but since I was in Argentina a steak restaurant is a must. It's like 50 minutes from the city center (Buenos...More

As one of the main commercial hubs of Buenos Aires,
Belgrano has something for everyone. The myriad of
shop windows in Cabildo Ave. will draw you in, but it
is Chinatown — an area of no more than two square
blocks — which will keep you hooked. Crowned by an
ornate arch marking its entrance and filled with small
stores packed to the brim, it is a place where colour
