The steaks are great and inexpensive. I had the ribeye & my wife had the Octopus. My medium raw ribeye was just ok. The octopus was not bad , according to my wife.
You make your selection of choice cuts from a tray of samples ( photo attached)
Sufficient selection of red wines to go with the steak.
Some waiter do speak workable English .

Absolutely divine Argentinian steak! I had the lomo, cooked to perfection (for me). French fries were made of fresh potatoes and the salad was very tasty too. We also loved the Argentinian beer Quilmes. It really was a culinary orgasm. Do try if you are around. You will not regret. We were five licking our (own) fingers and rolling our eyes in delight! Bravo El Argentino!

It's a tourist trap serving ok meat but for the price you can do better in Polanco/Mexico City. Wine by the glass stinks. Refused to refund disgusting cheap blue cheese ensalada de la casa. Leave your money elsewhere.

We didn't have good steak for some time, and El Argentino is just what we were looking for!
The steakhouse delivered great meat with good wine.
We will come back!!!

This restaurant was busy, which we thought was a good sign.
But not for us!
We walked through a lovely restaurant to be parked in a back room, with cafeteria style tables, a tv showing soccer, and a man who seemed to be draining the cellar with a bucket.
As the restaurant is supposedly famous for its steaks, this is what we ordered.
How disappointing! Mine was mainly bone and fat. And served with a few soggy chips and a mediocre salad.
The waiter was fine! And I think a tad embarrassed about where we were put.
You're probably asking why we did not complain, but like many, we did not want to spoil the evening completely by 'making a scene'.
This restaurant is not cheap, either...
