Happening – Puerto Madero – Buenos Aires

Happening – Puerto Madero – Buenos Aires

Sophisticated and more modern than the typical Argentine steakhouse. Nice decor. Located in Puerto Madero overlooking the boardwalk. Typically good food and even better service. We tried a hamburger at lunch made from some lean cut of meat. Poor choice. They should stick to the strip steaks and rib-eyes.

Las Cabras – Palermo Hollywood – Buenos Aires

Las Cabras – Palermo Hollywood – Buenos Aires

Wildly popular steakhouse. Almost always a wait for a table at both lunch and dinner. How do they do it? Nice ambiance. Great for people watching. And it’s cheap. Not good quality but apparently that’s not important the to hordes of locals and tourists that make this place one of the most popular restaurants in the city.

El 22 – Palermo Hollywood – Buenos Aires

El 22 – Palermo Hollywood – Buenos Aires

No cliche Estancia decor in this more modern take on the Argentine steakhouse. Slightly higher quality steaks than nearby Las Cabras but more expensive too. Suffers from a lack of creativity. I almost fell asleep eating my steak.

La Dorita – Palermo Hollywood – Buenos Aires

La Dorita – Palermo Hollywood – Buenos Aires

Quirky. Busy. Fun. Higher quality steaks than nearby Las Cabras and easier to get a table. When it’s busy service can falter. Hungry? Try the veal ribs with french fries. One order is easily enough for two. Unless of course you’re a bear or mountain lion.

La Bandurria – Palermo Hollywood – Buenos Aires

A unique take on an Argentine steakhouse. The dining room is adorned with album covers from British and American pop/rock classics. Interesting place. Friendly staff. Good food and service at a reasonable price. Worth a visit.

La Fonda del Polo – Las Cañitas – Buenos Aires

La Fonda del Polo – Las Cañitas – Buenos Aires

Steaks & Pasta This place takes the quintessential steak- and pasta-centric menu and dresses it up in lipstick and a petty coat (not literally, of course). The result is the Polo themed, rich-man’s version of the classic Porteño Bodegón. We always order one of the house specialties that has a steak and a tasty side-dish that’s not french fries. Definitely worth a visit.

Elena – Retiro – Buenos Aires

Elena – Retiro – Buenos Aires

The Four Seasons’ Elena restaurant offers a rustic take on Nouvelle Cuisine with high-end steak offerings (which is of course mandatory in Argentina). Meticulously trained chefs and waiters mean consistent, high quality execution and service. Only one thing missing. A personality to call its own.
