Really good steaks at a reasonable price, with a superb service and a really good wine list. Second time here and already plan to come back.

The sirloin steak was very tender. Skirt steak not as much, but with a lot of flavor. Great and friendly service, and a good atmosphere.

Was there for the first time, even leaving for sometime in Buenos Aires. Was a great surprise, very nice place to have a traditional Argentinian lunch. If you have a chance order the rib eye steak, one of the best in the town. Attention was...More

Nice space, did not need a reservation on a Saturday, service was adequate, English menus provided but did not seem touristy. Waiter forgot our appetizer, so entrees had to wait. Veal carpaccio was very good; green salad average (lacked salt and vinegar). We each got...More

I had the ribeye with a giant portion of chips and roasted pepper and enjoyed all three. The service was good as was the house Malbec. It is bigger than it looks from the outside with a mezzanine set up with many tables for two.

You can't visit Buenos Aires without eating a steak and this is the place to do it. We enjoyed out steaks and sides very much. The service was good. Be aware that they charge a $2.50 cover charge (for bread?!) They did serve complimentary champagne...More

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
