OMG!! My husband is from Spain and even him as drooling over the quality of the meat. Top notched and we actually booked a second reservation for tomorrow before leaving to Miami as he begged to go back. It's definitely top notched

Good service and salads but as a steak house dissapointed really. The steak was OK at best it was completely unseasoned And a little cold the chefs don't appear to be putting in much effort

On a wild rainy night,we turned up after 8pm so had to wait an hour for a table - not a problem,as we enjoyed a beer in a friendly football bar across the road. Our wait was worth it,as this 'joint is jumping' and not only are the 'well hung' steaks wonderful,but so is the Malbec vino,and any concern tourists... More

This the epitome of steak restaurants. Every cut you can imagine and some you can't! Very knowledgable staff, excellent service and a wonderful range of wines to accompany the beautifully cooked food. Booking is a must

Despite the fact that we had made reservations, they had no record of our name and they rarely, if ever, answer their phone tho’ we tried earlier in the afternoon to confirm. (We later learned that they probably did have our reservation, but under a number that we were given, but didn’t have with us. They apparently don’t usually go... More

The place is real Argentina: parrilla, the waiters (rapid and very kind), local people who usually dinner at this restaurant, leather tablecloths, furniture, location (at the corner) everything is true, not fake, not made for tourist attraction. It's hard to find a table without a prior booking, and the reason is that it is the best of Buenos Aires meat,... More

Sure a steak dinner is expected to be good in Argentina and this place delivered. The experience made it even better. We were a group of 8 and could not have been better taken care of. Because the portions are so big, we split multiple entrees and were glad we did. The service was great; the atmosphere was great; the... More

There are lots of Argentinian steak houses and this is one of the better ones.No where is particularly expensive from the Uk point of view.The rib eye steak and the chorizo sausages stand out. Individual internal styling to the restaurant adds to the overall romantic feel.A very nice restaurant.

A good Steakhouse. Attentive staff. We got a table without reservation. We had to wait 20 minutes in front of the restaurant but we got a glass of sparkling wine. Prices for steak between 300-500 pesos. Good Steakhouse - Check it out

Thank honky_tonk89

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
