Both food and service were terrible. Stake tasteless, starters cold. Products that seem to be of a very bad quality charged at a high price. On top of everything, services unpleasant and disrespecting. I don't recommend this place to anyone.

Guy served raw food, then when we complained he microwaved it and brought it back out on the same plate, no other changes. When we said we weren't going to pay for the Chicken he got mad and locked us in.

El Argentino, Argentinian food and meat in particular has hit a nerve, and wherever we travel we make sure to stop by an Argentinian restaurant. Based upon a review from TripAdvisor we gave El Argentino a go the other night. Centrally located, easy to find....More

Good for a steak dinner. With the 40% discount on the food it is a reasonable price. The dessert was a bit dissapointing.

I had the most amazing steak here, it was tender and well cooked and had a huge cut for the price. Definitely worth every penny. Great wine, friendly staff and cocktails to begin! Great experience !

Late night after finishing a rather disappointing tapas tour we went in search of diner and luckily stumbled into El Argentino. Hands down the best part of our evening was the wonderful local crowd from Eixample with tables full of couples and groups of friends...More

Excellent place for a dinner. Fantastic food, great service, cozy atmosphere! Definitely worth to visit to enjoy great steaks!

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
