This is one of those places that if you don't know, you will miss it. It is inconspicuously placed along a side neighborhood in the business district of Hato Rey. Even if you get to it, the outside look may detract you away. But way and enter in and you will be transported to one of the coolest places you... More

Great empanadas de carne. Above average service. Interesting atmosphere. Suggest anything but the churrasco.

This is the best steakhouse in San Juan! Try Churrasco con Tostones! It has the largest collection of local artists memorabilia. Any day, at anytime you might be sharing an excellent conversation with a Federal Judge, or an Icon Latino Artist. The Deli staff? Simply the best!!!

Went today with my co-workers and the food was good, Service was also good, good meats and fresh fish. High price but good quality. One thing I have to mention was that they have valet parking and the valet person put a shade on my car to protect form the sun and heat of the day! Nice detail!

Visited this restaurant on a weekend to have a nice dinner and nice time with my wife and other family members. Food and service was good. Everyone had meat. I have been there a couple of years before and the ambiance is still the same.

I have been a customer of this restaurant for many years, and consider it one of the best Argentinian restaurants in San Juan. The restaurant's walls are filled with pictures of (mostly Puerto Rican) artists, the ceiling tiles are painted in the shape of stars with messages written by celebrities that have eaten there, and performances of many of these...

I was told by a local friend to try this deli. My grandparents were from Argentina and have been there many times. I looked around at what others were eating and it all looked good. Everyone seemed pleased with their selection. A lot of businessmen and women there early afternoon. I had the chorizo Argentine style, a sandwich and flan.... More

Description
I found this restaurant only by driving by it and seeing the full parking lot and the sign Argentine in the name. I decided to give it a try. The only similarity to a
New York deli is the many signed pictures on the walls and the stars on the ceiling with famous people's signatures as well. The churrasco and Chorizo I had were incredible good, made even better with the two cimichanga sauces that came with it. The mango cheese cake was also very good. The menu was vast, and it looked like everythng that came out of the kitchen was spectacular. Obviously this is a well known local place, far from the tourist frequented restuarants but in a nice business district. This place is a Find! The only link I could find describing this restaurant is below: http://www.mytravelguide.com/restaurants/profile-79264805-Puerto_Rico_San_Juan_Deli_Restaurant_Argentino.html
