We had an overnight stay in Buenos Aires whilst on South American cruise. This was a gem to find. Drawn in by the smell and cooking we found a delightful courtyard and covered area. We had the most helpful service and advice from Augustus (...sorry if I got your name wrong) and enjoyed a steak and Argentinian wine to remember even a post meal treat! Thank you all so much. I rarely write reviews - but I’d love to come back.More

We were shown this lovely restaurant by a tour guide initially however were not hungry on that day so we returned by ourselves as wanted to explore further. You walk past the BBQ man whom I’m sure has a proper Argentinian name and into the...lovely garden. It’s quaint with cool water being finely sprayed on hot days. The food was great, waiters helpful and there are some interesting artefacts which can make for some great photos. Really good spot amongst the madness of tourism 👍🇦🇷More

We eat here on recommendation from our tour guide. Nice courtyard setting. We choose various meat cuts - excellent quality and cooked to our liking. Would recommend this place.

We were recommended this little Hidden Gem on a walking tour of La Boca. If we had been on our own we would probably have walked straight passed. We sat outside under a shady tree and enjoyed traditional sausage sandwiches for lunch. The food was...delicious and very reasonably priced. The service was good and the setting delightful. I would highly recommend a stop here, especially if you are a fan of MEAT!More

We ran into El Gran Paraiso on our walk of La Boca and were immediately convinced by the Asado visible from the street. The restaurant is a magic garden lush and green, the staff is welcoming and ready to make any of your wishes come...true. The BBQ for two was a lot of meat but it’s so amazing you will finish every last bite. Our waitress Andrea, huge thank you to her, was lovely. She gave fantastic wine suggestions and introduced us to Legui (try it as a digestif). Definitely a place to visit if you want to enjoy a real Argentinian experience in a quite touristy area.More

Stopped in for wonderful lunch. Some of the best steak I have eaten in Argentina. The caprice salad was delightful with fresh pesto and the baked cheese with walnuts and rosemary was great. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend this restaurant to...anyone.More

neighbourhood became the preferred settling area for
immigrants of a wide variety of origins, who ended up
