Recommended by our hotel and friends we decided we wanted a good steak whilst in Buenos Aires so came here. From the moment we sat down we realised it was going to be one of those nights where the waiter is trying to get you to spend as much money as possible! Have this expensive bottle of wine, you need... More

Staying above the restaurant in the 06 studios bed and breakfast so was recommended the 40% happy hour between 18:00 and 20:00, it brought the prices down but is still very expensive for a "brit" abroad, very disappointed as the meat i admit was very good but all the extras you don't order really push the bill up, poor service...

Very busy eatery - great to feel the vibe. Fast service - we had a very good waiter. Only complaint was our $$$ dry aged steak was so tough, I nearly stabbed myself with the big serrated steak knives they supply, using all my weight on it. Good steak can be cut with a butter knife. I lift, & not... More

Probably over-doing it in the sides? Not quite sure that this restaurant is not a victim of its own success and I would definitely say it's worth going to by way of measure against some of the other now excellent options in the Palermo area. It was all beautifully presented and there was some flourish by the waiter as food... More

This is a steakhouse which knows exactly what it is doing and produces outstanding beef cooked to perfection with an extensive wine list and knowledgeable service. A grand evening out

This was my third visit to La Cabrera, though first time at Cabrera Sur -which ranks better in reviews than Norte. We chose to sit outside on a lovely evening on the sidewalk -perhaps a mistake. Efficient hostess, efficient waiter. Portions are huge -even the half-size -so beware! I felt that vegetables (as side dishes) were lacking from the menu.... More

Hoped for a good steak but was very disappointed as the meat was far too heavily grilled. Service was slow as well and they put us outside on the sidewalk even though we had a reservation for inside.

My friend and I just had dinner at La Cabrera and the steak was amazing. We have been in BA for a few days and this was my third meal with steak. It's by far the best and good value for money. We had short ribs and grilled vegetables. The ribs were tasty and tender; they just couldn't be better!... More

The happy hour here is an amazing deal and it was my favorite steak I had in my whole six months in BA! The earlier you can go for happy hour the better, because as you get closer to the cut off they really do rush you!

Well, with so many reviews there is not a lot to add. The Place is great. Very typical, the service is 'old style' and very efficient. The quality of the meat is flawless. What you need to know: the portions are huge!!!! I ordered a half portion of fillet mignon and my husband a portion of "vuelta y vuelta" and... More

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.
