Ate there for the second time. Small family restaurant well kept. Food is good. Nothing fancy but what you'd expect from a good Argentinian in Paris. Prices are reasonable. Sides are tasty (if a bit small, for 5€ each). Will go back.

Good meat, nice wine list, short list of choices in the menu, no table clothes. In other words, you don't get that much for what you paid for. Plus, not easy for kids to find something they will enjoy.

I wanted to invite my bf for a dinner for his birthday. While looking on "the fork" website, I decided it was going to be an Argentinian restaurant. I looked close to his workplace and found the "Recoleta". I can tell you I am not disappointed with my choice. The empenadas de carne were delicious and the bife de lomo... More

Great service, staff friendly helpful and accomodating. Great food, all delicious, brilliant beef and chocolate dessert to due for, melt in the moth. Great environment, calming. Relaxed, friendly, warm, cosy. Romantic. We were on honeymoon in Paris staying at hotel de banville. This was a stones throw away which was ideal. What a perfect first night in Paris.

We had a friends dinner there - first we were 4, then 5, and finally 6. Staff accomodated us very kindly. Food was great with amazing meat (try the sweetbread which are delicious) and beautiful Malbec wine.

A nice change in Paris. I would recommend the grilled provolone cheese. The meat was good, not overdone, and the chimichurri tasted like I remember. Relatively narrow building, so not many places. Also, very busy for aTuesday.

I was recommended this place by an Argentinean. I was disappointed, i lived 2 years in Argentina and didnt find those authentic flavors i was looking for. The meat is excellent. But This is just a steakhouse and classic dishes are revisted with unnecessary artistic touches. All flavors were bland. Expensive

The "filet de boeuf" is a blockbuster, melting like butter. The beef ham is great, wines by the glass are among a short but upscale selection of South American wineries. The owner is a nice man who will entertain you.

Driven by good reviews and being located just 1 minute from our hotel, we decided to have dinner here. Restaurant is small, with very close seats as in most of Paris restaurants, atmosphere is friendly. We had two empanadas de carne and two entrecote with sauce and humita, they were very good and tasty. Unfortunately as it was our first... More
