A word from Buenos Aires Restaurant - Croydon
Every good carnivore loves a great Argentinian steakhouse, and Croydon foodies know this is one of the best places in the neighbourhood to come for prime cuts of beef. The Buenos Aires Restaurant on Croydon's High Street has a plum and grey colour scheme, wooden floors and walls lined with bottles of red wine making it a smart choice for work dates and fun meals with friends. Convenient to all of Croydon's shops and bars, Buenos Aires is a great meeting point and signature items from the menu include the patatas bravas with garlic-mayonnaise, and the bife Buenos Aires – a chargrilled Argentine prime sirloin steak topped with egg, bacon and red peppers served with potato wedges.

    This place isn't even open! The restaurant has closed down but for some reason you can still make a top table booking. Lucky for me we were running late so I called the number and it said the number was unavailable which made me think something isn't right. We ended up going to the pub instead

    I had booked this restaurant for a romantic meal for me and my partner for valentines day. I had received two confirmation emails for my booking and did try and call the restaurant as well, but the number didn't work. I relies know that's because the restaurant is closed, after me and my partner made the effort to go out in what was awful weather ready for a lovely evening, make are way to the restaurant to find it closed. So I thinks is safe to say that it totally ruined the romantic night I had planed, and I hope that top table will take the south Croydon brunch off there website so this doesn't happen to other people.

    The second time I have eaten there is as many weeks and both times the steak has surpassed itself. Ridiculously tender, great flavour and good value for money. Everything you would want from a steak.

    To celebrate my birthday I arranged to go to Buenos Aires - Croydon and was not disappointed. On arrival we were the only people in the restaurant and although that impacted the atmosphere, it was not uncomfortable. We chose the Wednesday set menu and was impressed by the variety of dishes and ultimately quality of our food. A very pleasant evening and I would be happy to return again in future.

  • Good steak restaurant in Croydon
    claire
    Dined on 11/5/2013
    Good steak restaurant in South Croydon. Quite small, caters for around 26 diners so it has an intimate atmosphere. Not great for non-steak eaters as the only two options are a pasta dish or chicken. However as a current non steak eater I thoroughly enjoyed the chicken. My partner raved about the quality of the steak and the red wine. Would re-visit when I can eat steak.

    Service was good. My steak was a bit fatty. Would be good if they recommended the cuts of meat and what wine to drink. If it wants to be up there with the other steak restaurants it does need to do it a bit of work especially for the prices.

    Excellent service. Perfectly cooked steak. Would definitely recommend the Croydon branch. Although the starters were not that impressive. My partner order chorizio which arrived looking like a burnt bbq'd sausage! And the creme brulee was more like a panacotta. Although we didn't complain, the waiter kindly apologised and did not charge us for the brulee.

    Buenos Aires in Croydon small restaurant ok if you are not looking for somewhere lively, would have liked more space as quite compact. Attentive staff and fairly quick service. Food suprisingly good, however starters small and disapointing for the cost. Overall thought was a little expensive and have had a better experience in the steak restaurants in London would not hurry to go back.

    Buenos Aires Restaurant Croydon: disappointing ambience; overworked staff - looked like just one cook in tiny kitchen to prepare all food, plus one waitress; food was decent but my steak was overdone so had to send it back, which also happened at another table. Pricing okay apart from charges of up to £2.95 for cheese and pepper sauces served as sides. Emerged reasonably satisfied but would not return.

    Simply, the best steak and chips, chargrilled to medium-rare perfection (note: steak perfection is not "well done") chunky chips, green salad with a touch of dressing. No real need for sauces on meat this tasty but I ordered a blue cheese (for the chips) and my companion got the peppercorn sauce. Mm-mmm! Writing this review is making me hungry, I will definitely be going back soon! Friendly helpful waitress too! (The restaurant is tiny so not ideal for an intimate date or really large people)

    Buenos Aires, Croydon: been meaning to try here for a while, especially after reading reviews, but only just got round to it. Grilled provoleta and chorizo were promising starters, then disaster! no fillet steak! Given it wasn't overly full on Thursday night, this seemed a bit of an oversight. Made do with ribeye and sirloin, good in themselves, but disappointing when we'd dreamed of the lomo. Sauces were also very salty and quite expensive. Won't give up, but hoping next time will be better.

    Buenos Aires in South Croydon: a Tuesday evening and we were the only diners, which did not detract from the intimate atmosphere. Service was friendly and helpful. The set menu deal of 3 courses for £18 offered steaks that were only 180 grams, therefore ordered from ala carte. Stayed close to budget by missing desert. Comlementary toasted cheese was a nice touch. For starters we had two kinds of Empanada, which are amazingly good. Had the Rib Eye for main, which was excellent. Would go again

    My husband and I ate at Buenos Aires in South Croydon after noticing it as we walked past post-dinner at another local restaurant. Fairly small and intimate but you're not sitting too close to your neighbours. The menu is pretty extensive, but it was the Argentinian steaks we'd gone for. Waiting was friendly and unobtrusive. The food was lovely, tasty and beautifully cooked. The fillet steak was to die for - soft and melt-in-the-mouth. Pudding was gorgeous for us both. Great wine too! Go!
