el mejor lugar para ir a comer carnes y degustar buenos vinos argentinos. Las porciones son enormes pero de mucha calidad. El lugar es caro pero lo vale. Y los mozos son muy atentos y predispuestos. The best place for tasting meat and very good wines from Argentina. The price are expensive but plates are big you can share. It... More

Particularly wonderful: Lomo, sweet potato side dish, fries. Not so good: first two wine choices not available, and it took quite awhile to so advise us. Third choice wine (recommended by the sommelier, and at he did not upsell) finally showed up when salads had already been consumed and meat was arriving. One side dish never showed up, but appeared... More

A fantastic restaurant for BBQ - they know how to do meat perfectly, have great side dishes, excellent wine list and very attentive staff. It has traditional decor and a classic menu. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a great dinning experience in Buenos Aires. Advice: you absolutely need a reservation in advance!

If there was one parilla to visit in BA, for me, it was this one. probably some of the finest steak I have tasted. As with every parilla in BA, portions were on the large side but the sides were fresh and interesting. More locals than tourists but a good mix of both provided an international flavour to everything.

I went with mu family for a late lunch. Great outdoor food, great beef and provoleta. High price, but it's worth it. Service could be better. Highly recommended.

Don Julio is located in a small red round building on the corner of Calle Guatemala and Gurruchaga, Palermo Viejo. It's THE authentic parrilla for meat and wine. I came for dinner with my family. Sitting in the back room surrounded by shelves full of bottles on the brick walls we felt like connoisseur. We were served on surprising leather... More

Must make reservation. Very popular with all the locals. We were a party of six and all had steaks both large and small cuts. They were all a little over cooked. Not as good and the better steak houses in the U.S.

We sat outside on a slightly chilly night and they gave us lovely cozy blankets and a glass of cava as soon as we got there. The food was delicious as was the wine and the service outstanding. A great experience.

We dinned at Don Julio for my birthday celebration, we made reservations for 10 pm and we were glad we reserved. There was a big line waiting for a table. We went straight to the front door and told the hostess we had reservation and she gave us two flutes of sparkling wine and in 1 min we were at... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
