As has been mentioned by previous reviewers, it is essential to make a reservation here, but what hasn’t been suggested is how difficult this can be! We eventually booked via Facebook and wrote to confirm on the day but got no response. We decided to show up early just to be sure but didn’t realise they do two “sittings” and therefore cannot accommodate early guests (not even to sit and the bar and have a drink while you wait). When we asked to sit at the bar the hostess rather rudely & abruptly turned us away and locked the door. We therefore had to wait in a nearby bar, but when it was time to return it was raining so heavily we were soaked through and had to eat most of our meal in cold, wet clothes! I know they can’t help the weather, but I think their customer service could be improved.
Aside from this somewhat turbulent beginning, we had a lovely meal and were so glad to have booked in advance as the queue outside the restaurant stretched well down the street and ppl were waiting in the rain !
The standout dish for me was the sweetbreads which were absolutely divine: salty and sweet and melt in the mouth. We tried various sweet bread dishes in Argentina and Uruguay and this was by far the best version of it.
Our waiter suggested that the mains were “per person” but believe me, they are not! Especially if you’re planning on having starters like the sweet breads. We didn’t listen to him and got 2 steaks to share between 4 which was more than meat to go round. We ordered one “smoked” boar on the waiters recommendation but this was my least favourite - the T- bone was better (and in hindsight I don’t think steak is much improved by smokiness).
If you’re coming from Europe be aware that Argentinians (and Brazilians) like to salt their meat before grilling and often leave the fat on steaks. I personally think meat cooked this way is delicious but it’s not to everyone’s taste. I also recommend the cabbage as a side : its sweet, pickleyness is a good compliment to the richness of the meat .
