My partner and I decided to go after reading so many good reviews- we ordered 2 bifes de chorizo and they were ok, not amazing. I would give it a go if you are around that area, but there are definetely better options in Buenos Aires

Enjoyed our first lunch in Buenos Aires here and it was fabulous! We ate the most buttery and tasty filet mignon ever accompanied by the yummy potato/sweet potato mash and it was $12!!! Service was excellent! A must place!

The food was okay but not spectacular. We’ve definitely had much much better in Buenos Aires. If you’re looking for a parrilla, this is not it. You can only choose from four cuts of beef: bife de chorizo, ojo de bife, entraña and lomo. One of our steaks was under cooked and the chicken was dry. Also, the flan was basically scrambled eggs and super unpleasant. You can get better flan at basically any confitería in the city. Trust me. Scrambled eggs with sugar. Gross.

I’ve seen a few people mention value for money and I’ve also got to disagree. I think some people don’t know how to order in a traditional parilla. If you go to a traditional parilla you can order one steak or piece of meat and a couple of sides and share between two. Here, the portions are small so you each have to order a plate which does end up being much more expensive. Also, since they are giving you a smaller steak it doesn’t have as much flavour as a bigger piece would do.

On the plus side, the staff were nice.

Look, maybe we went on a bad day but we will definitely not be going again

After read so many good reviews we decided to try this place and it was much better than we were expecting. The food is delicious, we highly recommend the bife de lomo our favourite with the papa rellena on the side. The ojo the bife and the bife de chorizo are also amazing. We had a glass of the premium red wine which was very nice and the dessert flan with cream and dulce the leche was yummy! The empanada they make is the best in Argentina!!! It is not minced meat inside but real pieces of filet mignon! The restaurant has a good price and it is much cheaper than many other ones so great value for money specially being the best steak in the town.All staff were very friendly and prompt to help us clarifying our questions and suggesting. All this made us go there twice during our week in Buenos Aires. Muchas gracias
