After reading the reviews I went here one evening after work, and wasn't disappointed ... yes, it's not cheap, but for a good steak restaurant, the prices aren't unreasonable. The service is good and the restaurant was very popular - my one complaint is that the tables are quite close together, as the building is quite narrow. I ordered Bife... More

Ate there for the second time. Small family restaurant well kept. Food is good. Nothing fancy but what you'd expect from a good Argentinian in Paris. Prices are reasonable. Sides are tasty (if a bit small, for 5€ each). Will go back.

Good meat, nice wine list, short list of choices in the menu, no table clothes. In other words, you don't get that much for what you paid for. Plus, not easy for kids to find something they will enjoy.

I wanted to invite my bf for a dinner for his birthday. While looking on "the fork" website, I decided it was going to be an Argentinian restaurant. I looked close to his workplace and found the "Recoleta". I can tell you I am not disappointed with my choice. The empenadas de carne were delicious and the bife de lomo... More

Great service, staff friendly helpful and accomodating. Great food, all delicious, brilliant beef and chocolate dessert to due for, melt in the moth. Great environment, calming. Relaxed, friendly, warm, cosy. Romantic. We were on honeymoon in Paris staying at hotel de banville. This was a stones throw away which was ideal. What a perfect first night in Paris.

We had a friends dinner there - first we were 4, then 5, and finally 6. Staff accomodated us very kindly. Food was great with amazing meat (try the sweetbread which are delicious) and beautiful Malbec wine.

A nice change in Paris. I would recommend the grilled provolone cheese. The meat was good, not overdone, and the chimichurri tasted like I remember. Relatively narrow building, so not many places. Also, very busy for aTuesday.
