It vwas great to be back in this neighboiurhood parrilla. We were on the first floor this time and aprtaking of good dinner specails, half-a-bottle of Norton´s blanco, a very fine white indeed. In my case, I did not join my wifew and sister-in-law in dinner specials but instead ordered a generous portion of lechon grilled to perfection on the asado. This is among the best pork I have ever eaten. We wsere too full for dessert which is ameasure of this eatery´s success. Cheerful service was a bonus.

This was a great restaurant to meet up with friends at. It was absolutely bursting at the seams on the evening of Good Friday recently,and as a result some of the service was a tad brusque but the quality of the food still shone through. The freshness and flavour of the home made chorizo sausage was simply incredible. tHe arugula salad with Parmesan, tomato and carrot also stood out. The wine list was comprehensive and as a fairly large group we could enjoy both the Torrontes white (The Etchart Privado brand is very good!) and Malbec red varieties!

When a place is brimming with locals, you know it's going to be good. And it was, and the meat I ate was of top quality. Being a big restaurant, service could take a little while. I recommend it first and foremost for the splendid beef.

If you are reading this is because you are in Argentina, or planning to be there soon. That demonstrate your adventurous side, so go one extra step and take a taxi to El Español. Great beef, and VERY reasonable prices. Three stories packed with locals, so logic dictates that they know when something is really good, and for the pocket as well. No English menu, no English speaking staff here, but great beef! The location is safe.

I love this place!
The food portions are big, fresh, great quality of food!
The ambience is more like a typical "bodegon", but is clean and it has 3 floors.
Just be aware that usually you will have to wait to be seated and I would avoid any holidays because the waiting time will be more than an hour.
Check out the different promotions.
Excellent value for money.
