Description: Villegas Resto & Grill es un perfecto punto de encuentro entre carnes de primerisima calidad y el expertise de su maestro asador. Creado por un grupo de productores de hacienda especializados, con ganado propio y vasta tradición en Córdoba, Buenos Aires y Entre Ríos, lo cual garantiza la provisión y calidad constante.La ambientación de sus locales se resume en calidez y sobriedad, un mix entre lo clásico y lo urbano, la tradición y la modernidad.Nacido en el inigualable entorno de Puerto Madero en el ano 2010 y replicada recientemente en el barrio de Belgrano. A diferencia de la mayoría de restaurantes de carne de Buenos Aires, Villegas Resto tiene la posibilidad de ofrecer carnes de primerísima calidad ya que cuenta con campos y ganado propio, los cuales destina al abastecimiento de sus restaurantes, garantizando de esta manera su calidad ya que, la carne que el comensal recibe en la mesa ha sido criada y supervisada por nosotros desde su nacimiento.Contamos con un establecimiento en la provincia de Buenos Aires, dedicado a la cría de ganado destinado al consumo. El mismo se encuentra ubicado en la Localidad de Verónica y cuenta con personal especializado que se dedica a supervisar la crianza de estos animales que finalmente serán destinados al consumo en nuestros locales. Contamos también con establecimientos ganaderos en la localidad de Villaguay, provincia de entre ríos y en Rio Cuarto, provincia de córdoba. Todos ellos son especialmente seleccionados, teniendo en cuenta su ubicación geográfica, la cual es consecuencia de un estudio pormenorizado del suelo, que permite el crecimiento de pasturas de primerísima calidad, las cuales sirven para una mejor alimentación del animal y su posterior desarrollo. Por otra parte un trabajo a conciencia de nuestros ingenieros agrónomos y veterinarios permite un constante mejoramiento genético que, de la mano de las seleccionadas pasturas sembradas, garantizan un animal con la cantidad de grasa exacta para producir un corte de carne excelente.

I've been telling my partner for years how great the steak is in Buenos Aires - so she ordered ribs... I ordered the house special - a one and a half inch thick T-bone. The steak was delicious, perfectly cooked medium rare. My partner said the ribs were great - not too sweet. We ordered a bottle of Argentinean chardonnay - not bad but not as good as the Chilean chardonnay we drank the previous evening in Santiago.
Great position overlooking the water. Overall, a pleasant evening and we were glad we had a 2km walk back to the hotel.

The food, setting and waiter service was brilliant!
Be warned though that the starter dishes are main course sized! The garlic prawn start was wonderful, I shared a main of gigantic ribs with my daughter and still we couldn't eat them all after a main! The steaks were suculle

Lovely view of the river from our table, service was kinda average. The eye filet steak was large, perfectly cooked and very nice.

We ate dinner at this restaurant and enjoyed having a riverfront view with a lovely sailing vessel nearby.

For the appetizer we had beef empanadas which were okay. The meat was a bit fatty and the sauce not to our taste. The salad was a nice bowl to be shared between the two of us. Interesting how salad dressing is not common in South America. The oil and vinegar was average. The bread was very good.

For the main course, my husband’s steak was perfect. Mine was very fatty and I would have asked for another but the wait staff was rarely around. The house Malbec was fantastic.

I would choose a better parrilla next time instead of opting for a view.

We had a good table looking out to the river. We ordered Caesar salad and then of course steak, washed down with a very good Mendoza Malbec.
Sadly the Caesar salad was not freshly made. We even thought it could have been left over from the night before.
The steak was a disappointment, rather fatty.
No desire to return.
