Good wine. Refrigerated red wine. Steak was good. Vegetables were very good. Empanadas were good. Service was good. I would return.

This place has great meat. If you want steak, look no further. The other stuff on the menu isn't too great, but steak is A+. In comprison with other steakhouses in the neighbourhood, it is very well priced. The cambalache salad and the puff potatoes are to die for! Great ambiance

I have been there several times on business and with my family, simply because it is too close. Pricey and not value added. And retrieve an invoice from them is complicated. You have to call and call again . I will not be going back.

Cambalache may not be on this week´s hot new list but wow was it amazing. I take it they have been in business for decades and it shows. Impeccable service. Truly - has to be a long-sustained service culture. Every team member really knows what they are doing for the dining experience. Absolutely delicious beef and every other dish that... More

We found this place on one main street in Mexico City, looked good at the start, great option for smokers who likes to smoke during a coffee or with some drinks. The dinner was good, but the meat is the best, the other dishes got some lack of taste, a soup and fish not really recommended. They made a mistake... More

We had a team dinner on a weeknight. The place was chosen by an Argentine expat, who insisted on Argentine food in Mexico - go figure! The restaurant is very cozy, with traditional, upscale decor and a lot of space between the tables. The only minus was an array of TV sets tuned to soccer which were a bit out... More

Argentinian restaurant on Insurgentes. Went on a weekday night and it was not crowded, however reservation recommended for lunch and weekends. Location is really nice, food was ok but not great. Had some empanadas as starters and meat for main course. Given the relatively high price, it was a bit disappointing.

I was couple of times in Mexico City and from the first time I am visiting "CAMBALACHE" restaurant. Incredible Steak, Rokuefort salad and Special grilled cheese. Strongly recommended place!

Nice place in this busy city and street. Quiet, clean and good service. Safe choice by European standard. The food was great both Continental and Mexican cuisine. The prices where well above average.
