My wife and I were joined by some friends on New Year's Eve for an amazing dinner. We were all very happy with the food and the service. The steaks were amazing. Also very reasonably priced for London. Argentine beef makes all the difference. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is reading this.

First time that I've visited and recommended by a customer. Not cheap but the quality of the food was just superb - you get what you pay for. Drinks reasonably priced and a good selection of bottled beers. Service was great and overall a great dining experience. Try the chips - chunky home made beasts that are a meal in... More

We randomly ended up in this restaurant and absolutely adored it. Bife lomo melted like butter, chimichurri was from another world and the chips simply perfect. We will be back!

Been a few times but now think this place is just too pricey for what is in effect steak and chips. It's very nice but at £38 for a sirloin veg pots and sauce is west end prices. Wine is also pricey. Maybe just been there and done it before. Nice staff. Good service.

Ate here with my nephew and his partner after declaring I fancied Argentinian. Restaurant is in outskirts and unlikely to be found by most tourists. Main man is Argentinian and there was a Spanish waiter too on the Monday evening we visited. I ate sweetbreads to start and rib-eye steak for main. I have been to Argentina and rate this... More

Me and Sara booked a visit to London - and booked into this steak house when we had a date. We booked in a 6.30pm which was a bad move as getting a taxi at that time was crap - £30 later we got there £30 for a taxi was worth it the steak was one of the best we... More

The sirloin steak was incredible, cooked to perfection. Sides also great. The roasted pepper a highlight. Also it was my mums bday and they brought a complementary desert without me even telling them. They must have seen the card. Great wine. Very much enjoyed it. Fully recommend

Santa Maria del Sur, a cosy neighbourhood restaurant in Battersea, specialises in Argentinian steaks and wines. Enjoy a dinner in the rustic dining room, surrounded by earthy exposed bricks, polished floorboards and traditional paintings. Every Monday live music shows contribute to enhancing the South American atmosphere which is already strongly present within the ambience. A lovely place to enjoy with friends and family.
