Rating: Stars . Restaurant Type: Steakhouse . Grilled Steaks . Cost: . La Carnicería is the heavy metal version of the Argentine steakhouse. Nothing quite like it in Buenos Aires.
Hurrah for L’Adesso. Were it not for the very average décor this restaurant would likely be in our list of Top 5 in the city. The service was only second to one other restaurant we’ve visited in Buenos Aires, La Pecora Nera. And the execution was as good as any we’ve visited. For Italian cuisine, it’s a shoe-in for the top spot in the city.
This is no gourmet restaurant. It’s just really good food at a descent price. That shouldn’t be something to brag about … but in Buenos Aires, it’s pretty rare. Beware a visit on weekends based on consumer reviews we’ve read. On a weeknight, I think it’s a definite “GO”.
Sterling service, a superior steak, all the fixins in a bustling and pleasant atmosphere make La Cabrera one of your best, if not the best, option for a steak in Buenos Aires.
Gourmet Bistro. Nice ambiance. Better than average service. Near perfect execution of each element of the meal and very reasonable prices.
Dimly lit restaurant that is perfect for couples seeking romance or guys like me seeking good food and service. It offered both. This restaurant is one of the best kept secrets in town.
Fairly authentic and well executed Mexican food with big portions at an very good price. Located in the heart of Palermo Soho. Worth a visit.
Rating: Stars . Restaurant Type: Steakhouse . Grilled Steaks . Cost: . If you only have one night to eat out at an authentic Argentine steakhouse, do it here. High quality, thick-cut steaks.
At one time, Casa Cruz and Belgrano’s Sucre, were our favorite high-end dining spots in Buenos Aires. But Casa Cruz has a lost a bit of the luster it once had. With so many new restaurants with more creative and better executed menus Casa Cruz is no longer a Top 10 candidate in BA.
A reasonably priced menu, the descent quality of food they dish out, and a comfortable atmosphere for dining will keep Calden of Soho at the top of the list of the best steakhouses in Buenos Aires and will continue to make it a favorite with locals in neighboring Palermo.
Minga is an Argentine steakhouse with a more contemporary atmosphere but a fairly typical menu. There were some lapses in execution on a recent visit.
Fairly authentic Mexican recipes in an upscale restaurant in a beautiful old building in Palermo Soho. Friendly and efficient service. Very enjoyable. Perhaps our favorite spot of Mexican food in BA.
Austere, but pleasant ambiance. Check out the reasonably priced and well executed mid-day menu ranging in cost from US$10.50 to $18.50 (ARS$130 to $230).
Young, talented chefs dishing out some high-quality and interesting food. The decor is a bit of a mess. Service was good but certainly not world-class.
