We reserved a table for +20 people. It was on the 1st Floor, very convenient. We ordered Empanadas, Sausage, Provoleta Cheese, Thin Skirt, ribs and beef with salads, french fries and a lot of high end Rutini Wines... For dessert, a nice Flan with Dulce...More

Very disappointed after having eaten there with my family. First of all, I think they judge you by how you look. We are tourists so I was wearing pants with my North Face jacket and my two young boys were wearing normal boy clothes (t-shirts)....More

Everything was excelente, the place is nice and beef is really good. I would rather go with a "lomo jugoso" rather than a "bife de chorizo"... in case you really like medium rare beef ;)!

On all my trips to BA I eat here at least once, but I have now noticed a drop in the quality of service and food. As well the prices have risen substantially. Service was slow and non-attentive - restaurant was less than half full...More

This was a fine restaurant. Of course we had steak, which was beautifully done, and a malbec that was fabulous. The service was excellent, and by 8:30 it was packed.

Really disappointed with this restaurant. I was waiting for a table and they just ignored me and passed other people first. Maybe because I was alone. It was desrespectful

Spot on steak from friendly staff, all at a reasonable price, large portions as usual, possibly a bit touristy but that doesn't matter a jot when its this nice. Opens early which is probably good for english people

I dined here twice. The steaks were delicious both nights. Friendly staff. Great wine selection. Really had an old school vibe about it. I met one of the staff who had worked there for 50 years! Another had been there for 25 years.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
