This was a friendly place with excellent food. The staff did not speak English, but had an English menu which we found very helpful. My husband got their signature dish, which I can't remember the name of, but it featured the name "Esteban" and he loved it and ended up having to share it with our youngest son. The food was lovely and the people friendly. It's in a tough area to hail a taxi but the staff called one for us.

Like others, we were staying at the nearly-adjacent Holiday Inn Express and were looking for an "easy" dinner. The Estaban is an Argentine steak house and, candidly, the beef is better than at most steak houses in Argentina (and certainly the United States). A large lomo (filet mignon) with french fries is about $18 (cheaper than current Buenos Aires prices) plus tax and tip. Decor is upscale steakhouse (not as fancy as a US steakhouse).

BTW, a block in the other direction from the Holiday Inn is a Waffles & More restaurant, that has excellent gelato (available for take-out). So it is very possible to have a very easy and delicious dinner without walking more than a block from this hotel!

To our good fortune, we were staying at the Holiday Inn Express and just got back from touring. We had some ideas of where we wanted to eat, but because it was a bit late, we decided to go to the Esteban Steak House that was just across from the adjacent side street. Coming from the Midwest, we like to think we know good beef when we eat it. We had been disappointed in other steak houses in South America, but this one was fantastic.

Tip: If you like steak, try the Estaban Special (or Lomo Esteban). It's a large sirloin served on charcoal grill with an amazing shredded relish on top with garlic accent. Cost as of Jan 2012 was $17.90 usd.
