La Cabrera was a big let down for me. Had a way better steak and wine in Salta. But still very good.

Mash was surprisingly good. The curry was fantastic and talking to the proprietor was a lot of fun. This Indian restaurant was a nice change and was probably the best Indian I've had anywhere.
This is a cosy but fun curry house in Buenos Aires renowned for its great dishes and friendly atmosphere. Worth a visit it you’re in the mood for a curry dish.
Location: San Telmo
Danielle Oliveira says:
Casa Cruz! One of the best restaurants I’ve been in my life!
Casa Cruz is one of Buenos Aires chicest restaurants so make sure you reserve a table if you want to dine here. The interior is beautiful and tasteful, but make sure you don’t walk past it as there is no sign but enormous brass doors instead.

Adam Chequer says:
La Brigada, San Telmo. Steak. Wine. Awesome!
Silvio Hugo Saavedra Martinez says:
La Brigada, San Telmo. Best Bife de Chorizo.
La Brigada is regarded as one of the best ‘parrillas’ in San Telmo. There’s a great atmosphere here along with a menu full of the best Argentinian dishes around.
Location: Estados Unidos 465
Siga La Vaca
Bárbara Gutierrez says:
Siga La Vaca.
Adam Bernard says:
Siga La Vaca!
Siga La Vaca literally means ‘Follow the Cow’ and here you can sample some of Buenos Aires’ best meat dishes. And better still, you can sample as much as you like as it’s an all you can eat restaurant, or as they are called here, ‘tenedor libre’ or ‘free fork’.
Location: Alicia Moreau de Justo 1714
Col Lin says:
Rio Alba in Palermo. Best Lomo steaks in the world! Ask for Pepe!
Rio Alba is a popular Argentinean steakhouse that’s always busy with locals and tourists. It is on the higher end of the price scale when it comes to Buenos Aires restaurants but the food is worth the prices.
Location: Calle Cervino 4499
Cabaña Las Lilas
Eric Goepfert says:
Las Lilas by far! Best steaks, appetizers and huge wine selection. They give you a free plate of cheeses and meats to get started that would easily have a $20 value in the states. This is my #1 place in BA .
This waterfront restaurant isn’t exactly cheap by Buenos Aires standards, however the food on offer is outstanding. The beef on the menu was raised on the restaurants very own ranch and is complimented by an extensive wine menu.
Location: Avenida Alicia Moreau de Justo 516
Luciana Wallach says:
Kansas en el Hipodromo de Palermo!
Kansas is a modern American style restaurant with a couple of locations around Buenos Aires. These are popular restaurants with a lively atmosphere and a great selection of food. The menu offers burgers, salads, sandwiches and more, all with an American influence.
Graeme Feld says:
Club Eros, Uriarte 1609 - the old social club in Palermo. Good food, cheap and eat with locals in a rare traditional Portenos restaurant. The food isn't the best or the menu the most extensive, but it is an authentic piece of BsAs dining experience. Regularly go there when in town and enjoy it every time.
This restaurant is basically a dining room attached to a football club but has a cult following with both young and old in Palermo. The food on offer here is beautiful and at rock bottom prices.
Location: Uriarte 1609, Palermo Soho
Opening hours: Daily lunch & dinner after 8:30pm
And many more...
Emma Tilley says:
Aww I can't remember the name! It was on the river. The steak was fantastic and the wine list was a book!
Brenda Raez Solari says:
El Clarks en Recoleta es maravilloso! La parrilla Recoleta VIP y un Malbec Luíggi Bosca una tarde soleada de Otoño no tiene precio!
My Destination says:
Tough call- but we're going to say Barbería in La Boca!
Maria Castro says:
Restaurante Tomo 1 é o melhor de Buenos Aires. Instalado no Hotel Panamericano, a poucos passos do Obelisco.È um ótimo endereço para fugir das parrillas experimentando uma comida realmente argentina.
Aunty Em says:
Calabria in Palermo! Arrive late and get social with drinks on the street pre-meal
