We ate at Criollo during a visit to Barcelona with friends. We all decided to have steaks, all the requests where slightly different, rare, medium, medium well and well done. All the steaks came and where as ordered. Myself and the brother in law had the larger portion steaks and struggled to finish, the taste of all of the steaks was superb.
The service was efficient and friendly the evening as a whole was very enjoyable, a great little find and would recommend.

I have been here a few times as it used to be beside where I lived. By far the best thing on the menu is the solomillo steak. It is a very generous portion and comes out on a hot sizzling slate, cooked exactly to your liking with a side of sauces including chimichurri and a half baked potato (to take the edge off the meat sweats!). Best eaten with a bottle of red, of which there is a good selection.
Worth mentioning that on one occasion they had run out of the solomillo (very bizarre in an Argentinean steak restaurant!) so be prepared to order a back-up, we had entrecote which was tasty, but not a touch on the solomillo.
The service was nothing to write home about, staff are pleasant and food served in a timely fashion, but the tastiness of the steak warrants the high rating

Dear Lean G,

Thanks for you 4 star rating on Tripadvisor.

We are happy to read you enjoyed your time at El Rincón Criollo and you liked our service and food.
We are sorry, at the same time, that one time we ran out of solomillo so you had to switch your order.

Looking forward to see you soon

Kind regards

We stopped here for lunch. Sat outside - it's on a busy street but they do their best to soften the traffic noise with trellis, etc. Had the Menu del Dia which was very good value. Waiter service efficient and pleasant.

Good food and service including changing menu to suit fussy kids...

Dinner worked out t about 100 euros for 4 of us.

Would recommend if you like meat, ask for recommendations, white wine a bit limited, but still nice enough.
