On Christmas Day, all other major restaurants were closed. But La Pampa was open. We were pleasantly surprised by the service and quality of food/desert they provided. It is basically a steakhouse with Argentinean style of cooking, plus nice choices of deserts. We could also...More

Had a Oferta Coupon for their meal for two. Steak, chicken, sausage desert and wine. A good to good plus meal, with friendly professional service. Meat was cooked more than requested, but tasty.

This restaurant is located next to the Waldorf Astoria. It is very good. For lunch you get soup and bread with your meal. We enjoyed the ceviche and recommend the Punta Jalapena steak, which is nice and thick. Penne with olive oil and shrimp added...More

May want to upgrade meat, you order, compared to Ruth's Chris, this one is cheaper and is local flavor, they get some business from Waldorf next door, no view, one block from Ave. Balboa, take Uber and return same way.

Located behind the Hilton Hotel, it is not in a main thoroughfare so it take some effort to find (unless you are staying at the Waldorf Astoria). The restaurant specializes in Argentinian cooking, which is mainly meat. The menu offers several cuts of beef and...More
