We were a party of 12 on a Wednesday night, and they put together a bug table. The ambient is a typical bodegón from Buenos Aires, with lots of paints an figures and drawings of owls (that’s its name, of course). We have 2 milanesas...napolitanas with mash potatoes, 2 meatballs with mash potatoes, 1 merluza with mash pumpkin, 1 veggie ravioli, 3 omelettes, 1 pork with salad, 12 bottles of water, 2 diet cokes, 1 malbec wine, and for desert: 2 dulce de leche pancakes, 1 flan, 1 chocolate volcano and 2 coffees. The bill? Less than 90 dollars. The portions were huge, real homemade food, and nice and kind waitresses. It is worth to visit and enjoy it, several times.More

We started with two beef empanadas as appetizers. Our mains were milanesa napolitana and suprema napolitana, with sides of fried potatoes and a green salad. The meal was fantastic. The service was charming. And the atmosphere is kitschy fun. Oh and the price? Very affordable.

Great food, pleasant staff and large portions. Very nice dinner! We went out of our way to find this place and it was worth it.

Four of us had dinner there. Service was a bit slow but that was ok with us since we had much to talk about and were not starving. This is an eclectic and colorful place. Our meal was reasonably priced and did not disappoint. One...of us ordered the bif chorizo. It was an excellent and huge piece of meat that was only about $15. In the States, this piece would have been 3 times that price. Two of us ordered a traditional dish with pork, onions, potatoes cooked in light cream sauce with mushrooms. It was very tasty. Our green salad with tomatoes was simple. This is a fun place I recommend. By the time we finished our dinner around 11:00, the restaurant was full.More

In a neighborhood flooded with gourmet hamburger and new cuisine kind of places la lechuza is like an oasis of tradition and good meat. I had an excellent morcilla and then bife de chorizo at very reasonable price.

Beef was ok, not great. Service was efficient but not particularly efficient (even though there were only 3 other diners). Really hot (no air con).

We stumbled upon this on our first day in Buenos Aires and were so glad we did. It is charming- eclectic decorations and paintings of owls everywhere, the service was good and the good delicious! We started with a plate of local cheeses, olives and...salamis and I had then had homemade meatballs while my friend had a salad. All delicious and I would love to go back again.More

La Lechuza is very close to where we stay when in Buenos Aires, and for several years it was an old favourite where we'd eat a couple of times per week. On our return this year we noticed that there had been a radical change...in staff. Unfortunately, the change has not been for the better. The dish we shared was still good, but that cannot be said about the service. Unusually for a Friday evening, La Lechuza was less than half full, yet several customers found it difficult to gain the attention of one of the young waiters in particular, who was more interested in playing with his phone. Promptings from the lovely owner resulted in a desultory efforts on that waiter's part. Sadly, La Lechuza is no longer a bustling local eatery full of charm, and it seems that its regulars have voted with their feet.More

We ate here because it was close to our hotel. We thought that it was similar to the La Lechuza we had dined in when we were in Patagonia. It wasn't and the food and the service were not great.

I had a really delicious steak here. However.... my partner was served a piece of almost inedible steak that was more fat than meat and would not have been served to a local. In fairness to the owner, she did take 20% off the price...of the steak but it was almost inedible. The prices were are in line with every other mid-high end parilla in Buenos Aires so it was a relatively expensive, unsatisfactory meal. Given that my steak was nice, maybe we were just very unlucky with my partner's meal however this was our experience here, unfortunately.More
