Really pleasant dining experience. Modern cool decor, efficient and friendly staff. Food excellent, have the lamb cutlets, chilean meat and delicious. Argentinian meat was very good as well, well cooked.
Go for a special occasion.

Excellent steaks, Argentina style. Side dishes are also very well done and in large portions. The bread, however, is not as good as it is expected.

Pobre Juan is my favourite restaurant in Brasilia. It has an Argentinian vibe and operates a bit like a parilla. The restaurant itself if beautifully furnished with an amazing wine rack floating above the diners on the first floor. It is one of the few places in Brasilia where it is possible to get really good wine at moderate prices. The lamb is delicious and the steaks are some of the best I've eaten. Staff are always friendly and helpful plus they have really talented musicians playing every night that I've been there - you have to pay a small cover charge for this. The location, in an upmarket shopping centre, is not ideal, but typically Brazilian these days. Nevertheless, once inside, you could really be anywhere. Keep up the good work Pobre Juan!

This is a very good restaurant with Argentinian Meat and very good side dishes. The service is excellent, the atmosphere very pleasant and the food delicious. But for all those features, they will really charge ( no less than 100 Brazilian Reais for each costumer, with couvert and dessert, no wine). I like it for very special ocasions

The best steak, charcoal grilled, I have ever tasted in Brasilia is that from Pobre Juan! My family and I are steak lovers and we all agree that one is the best we have in town. The meat cames from Argentina (according to the maitre). I have been in Argentina a couple of times and have had an wonderful "parrilla experience" over there. Believe: Pobre Juan has the same quality and taste and is even better than some "porteños". Besides the good food, including excellent risotto, they serve good wine and the environment is very cozy.
