Lovely low key restaurant. The staff are fun and polite and you get a real family feel from the place. I have been to New Zealand and back and never had a better steak than I have here. Beautifully cooked and the steak is the center piece to all their dishes and the garnish is subtle, there's nothing worse than... More

Buen Ayre's lunchtime menu offers top quality food at very reasonable prices. My table of carnivores enjoyed rib-eye steaks, flank steaks and an Argentinian mixed grill; plus a tortilla wrap with roasted vegetables for our token vegetarian. The meat was seriously good, and perfectly cooked. Starters included the inevitable empanadas, and very good marinated ox tongue. Argentinian Malbec (what else?)... More

2nd or 3rd time here and always great - amazing food and service and at great value. The steaks are fantastic and always cooked to perfection - I had the fillet rare and it was one of the finest I've ever had. The sweetbreads are delicious too (like butter in the mouth) and the wine list is very good without... More

This is a place for carnivores and nobody else. The evening I went the restaurant was occupied 90% by men, which is hardly surprising. Its main strength is its great value. I can never learn to love places that have two sittings, although I understand the economics. Although we were not rushed there is always the feeling at the first... More

We have just enjoyed a perfect steak and has fabulous service even though the venue was at its capacity . The provoleta is a must but with the steak not as a starter . No need for any other sides as the main meals are big enough . Would recommend a visit. We are looking forward to visiting again .

Went here with a colleague for dinner while away with business. Staff are amazing, friendly and attentive. The food was fabulous. Amazing steak and a lovely fresh salad with tomatoes that actually tasted like tomatoes. Would definitely return

A few times a year we treat ourself with great steak. The place is relatively small but the portions makes up for this. Go for the super deluxe mix and enjoy great tender steak with some melted cheese absolutely divine. We be back in a few months.

Was rather reluctant to get the cab from the City to Hackney, but what a treat was this. You really need a beard and a single-gear bicycle to live on the Broadway (OK, not a beard if you are a girl) since it is Hipster Central. It makes a good change from all the suits a few miles south. The... More

We went to this restaurant due to other Trip Advisor reviews and to be honest it defo meant expectations. The service and restaurant were very good, considering we went with 2 young children, they both enjoyed the food and complimentary drawing picture. However, we loved the steak, chips, sauces and veg, all lovely and proper melt in your mouth steak,... More

Felt I was back in my country. Price/Quality very good as well. Worthy to go on a Sunday and eat like hell.
