Been a few times but now think this place is just too pricey for what is in effect steak and chips. It's very nice but at £38 for a sirloin veg pots and sauce is west end prices. Wine is also pricey. Maybe just been there and done it before. Nice staff. Good service.

Ate here with my nephew and his partner after declaring I fancied Argentinian. Restaurant is in outskirts and unlikely to be found by most tourists. Main man is Argentinian and there was a Spanish waiter too on the Monday evening we visited. I ate sweetbreads to start and rib-eye steak for main. I have been to Argentina and rate this... More

Me and Sara booked a visit to London - and booked into this steak house when we had a date. We booked in a 6.30pm which was a bad move as getting a taxi at that time was crap - £30 later we got there £30 for a taxi was worth it the steak was one of the best we... More

The sirloin steak was incredible, cooked to perfection. Sides also great. The roasted pepper a highlight. Also it was my mums bday and they brought a complementary desert without me even telling them. They must have seen the card. Great wine. Very much enjoyed it. Fully recommend

As a red meat lover I have been to more than my fare share of steak houses. This is the golden star in London's crown. From the moment you walk in you can't help but be impressed - a warm, friendly welcome, amazing wine list, gorgeous meaty starters but don't get too full because you will want to try you... More

We have been waiting an hour to be servede without any updates from the staff. Our waitress was complete lost and I have to asked him several times for drinks, starters etc. The food was ok but we would expect a good gesture from the management will have been welcome even a few words.

An excellent restaurant with the best steaks in london complimented with fine wine and great starters and deserts. A bit out of the way and certainly not central but worth the travel (though somewhat local to me). Definetly try the Virgin Apple Mojito's! (even if you do love your alcohol!)

Thank blavan1978

Santa Maria del Sur, a cosy neighbourhood restaurant in Battersea, specialises in Argentinian steaks and wines. Enjoy a dinner in the rustic dining room, surrounded by earthy exposed bricks, polished floorboards and traditional paintings. Every Monday live music shows contribute to enhancing the South American atmosphere which is already strongly present within the ambience. A lovely place to enjoy with friends and family.
