A few times a year we treat ourself with great steak. The place is relatively small but the portions makes up for this. Go for the super deluxe mix and enjoy great tender steak with some melted cheese absolutely divine. We be back in a few months.

Was rather reluctant to get the cab from the City to Hackney, but what a treat was this. You really need a beard and a single-gear bicycle to live on the Broadway (OK, not a beard if you are a girl) since it is Hipster Central. It makes a good change from all the suits a few miles south. The... More

We went to this restaurant due to other Trip Advisor reviews and to be honest it defo meant expectations. The service and restaurant were very good, considering we went with 2 young children, they both enjoyed the food and complimentary drawing picture. However, we loved the steak, chips, sauces and veg, all lovely and proper melt in your mouth steak,... More

Felt I was back in my country. Price/Quality very good as well. Worthy to go on a Sunday and eat like hell.

We have never been to an Argentine restaurant before so this was something special for us. Its all about beef, and its great stuff. We both had steaks, I had a rib eye and my misses had a rump. washed down with the house malbec. They were so big we could not finish them but it was very good.

Let's put it simply: There are far too many "Argentine" restaurants in Europe, and I've tried several, and I've been disappointed by the lack of authenticity (half Argentine, half Spanish, dipping sauces??!, etc). Buen Ayre is 100% Argentine to the core. Having dinner there only differed from having dinner back home (Buenos Aires) by customers speaking english. The staff is... More

A real find, this restaurant is everything you could wish for. Good steak, expertly cooked. Starters really tasty, good sides. The service is exceptional. Friendly without being in your face. Good recommendations when asked about the wine. No overselling on water, sides or starters and not trying to sell the most expensive wine. The bill was no more than we... More

Went here on recommendations from friends and was not disappointed. I had the rib-eye and it was cooked to perfection from the charring on the outside to 'rare-ness' on the inside. Decent house red too and service was just right. Makes we wonder why I - or to be more precise, my employer - have wasted money on the considerably... More

This was our first visit to this delightful Argentinian restaurant that certainly has a great vibe and wonderful, flavoursome meats, and reasonably priced wines and great fries. It is such a shame is isn't in our locale, but where our sons have just moved to so it is a great excuse to return ..... excelente!
