My husband & I entered this restaurant for a drink only. Our liter bottle of beer was brought to our table as the finest bottle of champagne. We sat comfortably at a linen table and sipped our beer. We will return for a meal today.

I haven't been to many parillas yet, but I don't quite understand the 5 star ratings. The food was fine, although our meat (we shared a steak) was somewhat overcooked (it was ordered a punte). The steak itself was really nothing special, so I hope this is not representative of the fabulous Argentine steak I've heard so much of. The... More

We found this restaurant on our first night out in BA. The food was excellent and although we did our best by sharing a salad and a steak it was still more than we could finish. Good food, good wind, good service and ambiance all for a reasonable price. Recommend trying this steak house.

My boyfriend and me were here for eating lomo but it was the biggest disapointment in palermo. Both meats (ordered a punto) were very hard, the bread was very old and the wine was warm. There are so many better places to eat lomo or other dishes! (the best lomo we had was in cluny)...

Me and my family were looking for a steak or italian restaurant at Palermo Soho when we found this restaurant. It was full with customers and it had an evaluation from Trip Advisor fixed on its window. So we decided to enter and try the menu. It looked like a restaurant where local people go on Sunday to have lunch.... More

Food was fanstasic and service was better then most places in BsAs. We were there early, (8:30) and it was a ghost town but it slowly picked up. I would highly recommend it, you won't be let down.

We have been here a couple of times and both times we had very good meet and very good service. Efficient and fast. Every meat course is accompanied by many small bowls with interesting sides (pity they are never warm enough!!) so beware of asking for salads or others for this might to for you. French fries were excellent! And... More

The food is good, but don't bother with the underdone, over-sized fries. We ordered a half order of the lomo which was enough for two since it comes with sides. The meat was pleasantly a little pink which you don't get often in Argentina. The grilled veggie plate was giant. Overall the food gets an "A" but then we get... More

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
