Description: Bienvenido a La Esquina de Buenos Aires Cuando llegas a esta casa centenaria del centro del San José de antes, es como llegar al Buenos Aires de mediados del siglo pasado. En su menú no solo encontrará, platos como la típica parrilla argentina con sus cortes de carnes ya conocidos, sino también, excelentes pastas caseras donde se nota el aporte culinario que tuvo la gran inmigración Italiana. Dentro de sus entradas se destacan, las rabas (calamares fritos) camarones al ajillo, marlín ahumado y sus ocho diferentes tipos de empanadas. De la parrilla se destaca la entraña, punta de cuadril y la tapa de asado; sus pastas más pedidas o más buscadas son, los tres tipos de canelones, los sorrentinos capresse y los ravioles de espinaca y gorgonzola. En los postres encontramos los infaltables, panqueque de dulce leche, de manzana y la elaboración artesanal de la Mouse de chocolate, helado de dulce de leche, higo con nuez y sambayon. Todo creado por el chef argentino Mauricio Cabado.

this restaurant is a well known restaurant in San Jose for its steaks and argentinean style ¨parrilla¨. The place is a small restaurant with a nice bar so you have to make reservations if you want to eat there, because it´s always crowded. I personally like to start with a ¨sangria¨ an then have red wine with the meat. I recommend this restaurant if you want to have a good meal and are not expecting a fancy restaurant.

We followed the recommendation of someone else. We asked for Mussels Provenzal rich in garlic and “salt”. As a main course I went for half portion of bife chorizo with potatoes and salad, nothing spectacular for the price they charged. My husband chose the lomito with the same sides.
It is an ok restaurant nothing special to be honest.

I've been there yesterday and I was impressed by how good was the meat of the picture for which I don't remember the name.
Good attention for all.
Hope to be there again soon.
Not cheap but I ll recommend it for sure.

Great location, good food, wine, and really good service! 1/2 parrilla would feed 3 if you take a couple of empanadas! I would suggest it!

You want to have "meat" here. Meat the Argentinian way!!! Very good
Atmosphere is very casual. Parking may be a problem. There is a parking lot in front of the restaurant about a short block away.
You must make a reservation.
