This was a great choice for taking friends out to during our recent trip to Buenos Aires. One of the full parrilla sets was fantastic to share and I particularly savoured the asado style chicken and the lechon pork from that set. There was so much meat that our friends could take some home in a 'doggy bag', even though... More

I enjoyed the mollejas and Parmesan cheese as entrance. Loved the "lomo a la pimienta con papas a la crema". Service was a little slow, but it was worth the wait.

Traditional, Argentinian look and feel. You can come here and go home and you will have been in Argentina! Very centric. You can feel the tradition in this place.

Service here is rapid. A bit pricy for the standard but popular with tourists as typical cuisine and worth the visit to see how meat is cooked for you and presented. Unlikely you will find this elsewhere in the world.

We had a great night here last night. The food was great and our waiter was very nice. I think it does depend on who serves you as there are mixed reviews about service but we got lucky I'm guessing. The meat is delicious and the salad and chips are so good. We order a meat platter and was so... More

The four of us stopped here for a late lunch/early dinner. It was recommended by our hotel. Our waiter said that the grill special for 2 would feed all 4 of us and he was right! A brazier was brought to the table and contained chicken, sausage, ribs, beef and who knows that else but all were delicious. We also... More

Pig was amazing. Loved this place. Great for Americans who aren't used to eating so late because it's open all day, not just at 8 pm for dinner
