We discovered this neibourghood joint by walking around our hotel one night.This is a great unasssuming local Argentinian restaurant that serves top notch meat (Chorizo bife best ) for a very decent price.Staff is warm & welcoming, service is attentive & effective, the room & terrace are just as nice as the crowd made of locals...Need to say more ?
Avoid the big tourist parilla restaurants around town & go for this littlefamily style gem !

They have this gimmick: the waiter cuts your steak with a spoon to demonstrate its tenderness. Except the poor guy had to struggle to get through the steak.

I found the meat tough and not cooked as I had asked (almost a capital offence in a country that has as many parrilleros as there are cows), the salad unremarkable and the fries were soggy. There was nothing to like, really.

I'm not going back. I had better luck at Parrilla El 22 which is nearby.

I have eaten at El Bondpland on four occasions i the past two months. A couple of times it was just the two of us, another time six and another time twelve. The food is good parilla fare, the meat was great when it was small group and the service good.

I noticed that you have better service and food when you are in a smaller group. They seem not to be able to deal with the different requests for how people would like their meat in a large group.

Would recommend it for a local night out but nothing too special. Having said that, their provoleta (baked cheese) was one of the better ones I have tried in BA.

I can assure you that I ate a lot of steak during the month I spent in Buenos Aires.

This great local place, in the heart of Palermo Hollywood, is highly recommended. The guy that owns the place is really nice and even gave us his card and inisted we call him at any time if we had any issues or queries while we were in town.

There are a lot of riculously good restauarants in B.A and this was among my favourites.

Check it out! The steak is better than at the better known places that we went to.
