Seems a typical place in the middle of San Telmo. Good milanesas, friendly service with good prices. Recommendable.

Walked passed..... looked ok and staff were friendly. Other reviewers seem to have a disproportionately high expectation of a family Italian focussed eatery vice a high end Argentinian BBQ. It is not 'cheap and cheerful', more 'modestly priced and does the business in Italian basic...More

If someone wants a bad parrillada that is the place to go. The 2 rips served consisted mainly of bone and fat. The remaining 60% of the parrillada were just innards from the cattle. If you order some fries to your dish, you maybe won't...More

With tables close together this eatery features steaks and beef but with many other items on the menu. Wonderful and not too pricy wine selection. Steaks were cooked just as requested. The service is attentive and responsive.

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San

Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
