As one of the top rated steakhouses on TA, we thought this would be a good intro to Buenos Aires. We were not disappointed. The steaks were juicy and flavorful and quality was as good as advertised. We turned up at 8pm without reservations and were seated within 15 minutes. Ordered the pork chorizo (good!), beef empanada (great!) and a... More

They want to create an athmosphere of want. This means than you cannot reserve a table but will have to wait to get your seat - on the street ! If you are there 7 pm they will sign you up on a list and you will get a table almost at once - only tourists will do this -... More

Wonderful restaurant for awesome steaks! Great atmosphere for a group of 9 on the second floor. The melted cheese appetizer was excellent and the beets (red, yellow and white) were absolutely delicious. The best chocolate mousse ever completed our carnivore overload!!

Seriously... the food was just amazing. If you want an incredible steak, this is the place to go! But... book before you go. Being tourists we had no idea that there would be a waiting list after 8pm. So waited an hour and a half, which allowed us the time to wonder the streets, enjoy a cocktail down the road... More

Very enjoyable and food excellent. The simplicity of presentation only going to show how flavour means more than anything. Good wine-list too. Highly recommend it but make sure to reserve a table well in advance of your visit!

After reading many reviews and getting multiple recommendations from fellow travellers, I was really looking forward to experiencing all Don Julio's had to offer. I arrived with my friend without a reservation around 8pm, we were informed we would be waiting 30 minutes for a table. We had no issue with that and were about to go for a short... More

We recently visited Don Julio for dinner on a Saturday night. They do not take reservations after 9pm so we went expecting a long wait for a party of 4. Not only was the wait not as long as expected, but they made sure the guests were more than happy while waiting-serving complimentary champagne and appetizers out front. For a... More

Great place to choose for our last night in Argentina. Spend a little time getting a bit dressed up and spread a few bucks for a perfect dinner on the town. Delicious and reasonably priced. The place is packed and there's a crowd out front but they feed you appetizers and champaign while you wait and what's better than an... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
