I had dinner with friends at El Buen Bife in Insurgentes on a Saturday in Feb 2016. We ordered meat and spinach a la creme; and had some wine. It was quite good. Menu is somewhat expensive yet not too much, as the quality of the food served is good. Our waiters were very friendly, and worked well. The restaurant... More

Good food, good place, fair pricing. No baby changing station in the mens' room. This is 2015, it is not acceptable. Come on!

Sometimes when you're with clients and colleagues for a business lunch, you just need to go to the place that's selected. And while this is an Argentinean-style steak house, it shares space with its sister Japanese restaurant. I was able to order a couple of vegetarian sushi rolls and could have also gotten vegetable tempura. Food was better than expected,... More

Nice place to eat, amazing that you can order from 3 different restaurants. If you go with kids, there's a big playground for them!

The meat is good as well as the empanadas (especially the one with cheese and corn) and the services is extremely good however the prices are really high for what they offer. In addition they charge for everything from chiles toreados to a potato with cream. Expect to pay $400-600 pesos per person with out wine and dessert

Conveniently located near our hotel (El Diplomático), we enjoyed our meal. The 3 "empanadas" we had for starters were delicious and the "churrasco" we shared was very high quality meat. The "margarita" was generous but too sweet. Service was very good. The piano player contributed little to the ambiance; he was rough on the keys and the music had a... More

This place gas high quality cuts and attentive and knowledgeable staff who explain the differences between cuts and recommend to what degree it should be cooked. The side dishes were decent, and they have an excellent but small selection of wines. It is quite expensive, count on. About $100 for two people with wine.

If you like meat, this is the right place to go, the best Argentinean cuts and wines. The service is excellent, you can enjoy truly professional servers for a romantic dinner or for a small group of people. The freshness of the vegetables and salads is a plus. The wine list is fabulous and contain some of the best wineries... More
