  • "Amazing food great service and will return again :)"
    dined on 10/08/2014
  • "Beautiful steaks, but for my experience, that's all that was great here. Service was so, so. For the price you pay in this restaurant, I expected so much more. Can't say I'd rush back"
    dined on 10/08/2014
  • "The service was brilliant, and the food was amazing. From the start, the service was top class, and the food was everything you'd expect from an argentine steakhouse."
    dined on 27/07/2014
  • "We arrived on time but felt like we were not expected. we sat at a table close to a large party of young loud people and for the first 1.5 hours could not hear ourselves talk. Never been to this restaurant before and offered no or recommendation as to which steak was the best cut that day. so settled for fillet which was cooked very well. the wine was expensive for what is was. It was a very hot evening and there was no air conditioning or fans so hot and noisy and the servers were indifferent. Food was good but doubt I'd rush back there. For what we had and what we paid I've definitely eaten in restaurants with a nicer ambience and better service. This was a Saturday night so possibly better value with a deal and when the weather is cooler"

  • "Best steak I have had in a very long time. Blew Cau out of the water..."
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "The tastiest steak I have eaten for a long while. Restuarant had a wonderful atmosphere and the staff were friendly and helpful."
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "The food was great all round. It looked good and tasted even better. We had the steak sampler which was cooked perfectly and well worth having at least once to really figure out which cut you prefer. Half price bottle of wine on Mondays went down a treat too. All in all a very good meal and the service was great too!"
    dined on 07/07/2014
  • "I think alot of people might think it's expensive but when you consider how much you pay for steak at non-speciality restaurants and the quality difference, it's not expensive at all! I'm usually really fussy with steak and don't order it but thought it would be silly not to at a steak restaurant! I'm so glad I did as it was the best steak I've ever had and was cooked perfectly! Three of us had steak all cooked differently and all three were perfect. The sides seem pricey but there's easily enough for two, at least with the roast veg and mushrooms anyway so you won't need one each. You don't get a dedicated server but all the staff were attentive and we were happy with the service. I would definitely go back, a must go for steak lovers!"
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "6 of us. Restaurant relatively empty. All steaks fabulous and perfectly cooked. Set menu on a Wednesday was good value - my roasted beef with garlic mash was to die for!"
    dined on 25/06/2014
  • "Great food, brilliant service, waitress knew the whole menu inside out, including detailed knowledge of the wine. Steak was lovely, cooked to perfection. We will definitely visit again. "
    dined on 07/06/2014
  • "This is the second time that we have eaten at this restaurant. The first time the food was outstanding, so it had to live up to our first experience. It very successfully did this. Looking forward to the next time that we go."
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "Really happy with our meal and overall experience. The quality of the steak is excellent, the service was attentive and prompt, its not cheap but then again, you pay for what you get and we had lovely food and a great night! I would recommend this restaurant and I will definitely be going back!"
    dined on 17/05/2014
  • "Went to Buenos Aires for the first time on Saturday night, found the food to be great - the steak platter was certainly enough for 2 and gave the opportunity to try all the different cuts. Ordered one extra side and that was enough to leave room for a dessert each. With wine the bill came in at just under £100 so pricey, but as it was a special occasion and the steak was so good I think it was worth it! Only criticism is that the staff don't seem to have dedicated tables so we had to shoe away 3 different waiters throughout the course of the evening who all wanted to try and clear our plates."
    dined on 17/05/2014
  • "We went there with family, my partner ordered a 20oz sirloin steak as the menu said all meat was cut to order, and they delivered, the food was fantastic, very well cooked. The staff were also very attentive. We are already planning when to go back!"
    dined on 10/05/2014
  • "My friend and I came for dinner, having booked and arrived very early, they were able to accommodate us, even humouring our request to sit away from the draught by the front door. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without being pushy. We both had sirloin steaks, which were the best we'd ever tasted. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening and plan to return soon."
    dined on 02/05/2014
  • "Very good food, attentive and polite staff. Easy to park close by."
    dined on 25/04/2014
  • "Our waitress for the evening, Marta, was friendly & helpful. We moved table because of a rowdy group of local trash (no matter how good the location, you can't blame them for their clientèle) who were dealt with in a calm & sensible manner by the male staff. The food was great, my wife said that the 10oz Chorizo (blue) was the best steak she had ever eaten. I chose the 10oz Ancho (rare) & wished I'd opted for another cut. We are considering visiting again & taking up one of the special offers."
    dined on 13/04/2014
  • "Wonderful food - garlic prawn starter is to die for & steak beautifully cooked. Fantastic service. Even so I found the price a little steep. The main meal price would be fine if you didn't then have to pay nearly £4 per veg side & the tiny pots of steak sauce for almost £3 are extortionate! That said, I will go back - just far less frequently than if the prices were a little lower! Maybe once or twice a year for special occasions as opposed to a monthly treat for example. Only other downside is that we were sat under the speaker and the music was a little loud. This was a problem for my father with his hearing aids so he struggled to join the conversation. The waiter turned it down for us, but it crept back up as the evening progressed."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "Have visited this restaurant on three occasions now and have never been disappointed. The steaks are amazing and cooked to perfection. The service is first class with knowledgeable and friendly staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. Overall, a perfect dining experience"
    dined on 30/03/2014
  • "Overall an enjoyable meal, value for money and friendly staff. Would visit again."
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Food was fantastic. We spent a lot of money there, even on Tuesday when they have BOGOF"
    dined on 18/03/2014
  • "Not a massive fan of steak, but booked as one of the few places you can buy tapas in Kent and Medway. Food was absolutely delicious, wine well matched, generally a great time."
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "Came here on the 15th with friends. Initially on arrival they didn't have my name on their list. I showed them the toptable reservation which convinced them otherwise.Ordered drinks, which arrived in good time. Our starter orders were taken & 15 mins later 3 of the 4 did... chorizos and empanadas for my fellow diners. All very tasty, but no chorizo in malbec for me. Polite complaints followed and it became clear that the kitchen had forgot. After some time it arrived, though the other starters were long gone by now. A quiet word about service followed which involed a refusal to pay if things didn't improve.. Mains - the medium steaks were more rare than medium but the all round taste was very good. More veg sides would be better though."
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "It was perfect. With great service and great food, like always."
    dined on 13/12/2013
  • "We had a fabulous rib-eye steak, cooked to perfection!,"
    dined on 19/10/2013
  • "It was pretty quiet for a Tuesday night but the steaks were lovely. Four of us dined and only one of the steaks wasn't cooked properly as per our order. Staff was friendly but dressed in own clothes, which let it down a bit. The patatas bravas for a starter, was a huge basket of potato wedges with a sour cream and fizzy salsa dipping sauce... Incredibly heavy for starter and a bit bland. Olives tasted like fish, apparently a particular type of Spanish olive but it was a very fishy aftertaste taste - ruined it a bit. They do some lovely Malbec however. Meal was £175 for 4 people... Ouch!"
    dined on 02/10/2013
  • "We have been quite a few time and without fail this restaurant delivers first class quality food every time. Even better are Tuesdays: 2 for 1 on main meals so it is excellent value. Steak is the best steak in Kent by far. Good wine. Great little restaurant."
    dined on 20/08/2013
  • "We had an excellent meal on Saturday. The food was great, steaks cooked to perfection, wine (Merlot) was great. Only one thing which applies to all restaurants these days is the boring salads. It doesn't take much imagination to create a decent salad. I am fed up with receiving a bag of supermarket mixed leaves and virtually nothing else - Food and value would have received full marks for this."
    dined on 01/06/2013
  • "Fantastic staff, fantastic service and fantastic food. I've never had such a good steak ever. Will definately return. Thanks"
    dined on 24/05/2013
  • "The burgers were a good standard and my chicken salad was delicious. Would recommend this restaurant to friends and family. Thank you."
    dined on 20/04/2013
  • "Arrival was greeted with mediocre welcome and service overall did not improve. We were a gropu of 4 (over 50's) out for a birthday meal. Restaurant was very busy with groups and totally under staffed for amount of guests. No attention to detail and waitress was not friendly. Waitress did not know the cuts and could not have been more impatient. Starters were excellent but drinks order was mixed up on two occassions. Mains were poor, 1 x steak was returned as too well cooked (charred and black on underside), waitress returned with same meal and suggested it was eaten whilst another steak was cooked!. Took 30 minutes for replacement steak which was equally as bad. Manageress was clueless and confirmed they were looking for new chef!"
    dined on 28/03/2013
  • "Quite simply one of our favourite restaurants where the food is amazing! If you are a fan of steaks then you will love this place, may I recommend it RARE!"
    dined on 22/03/2013
  • "Excellent steak. Friendly service. If you like beef, defintely check out this restaurant."
    dined on 03/01/2013
  • "Excellent steak perfectly cooked although the atmosphere and decor are a bit lacking. Friendly staff. The wines are a bit like playing russian roulette - unless you are knowledgable about the different areas of Argentina - and the info on the wine list is very poor"
    dined on 28/11/2012
  • "Amazing Steak one of the best i and my friends have had altogether with wine a little pricey but a really good place to go for a special occassion"
    dined on 17/11/2012
  • "We ordered empanadas to start, which were very tasty. We had the mixed steak dish to share which consisted of 4 6oz steaks: fillet, rib-eye, sirloin and rump. All were very good and cooked to perfection apart from the rump which was full of gristle. The steak was served with some French fries which were no better than you would get from a certain fast food chain. For £45 I thought this was very expensive for what we All in all we paid more than £80 and shared a starter and only had 2 bottles if beer. Good food but I can eat a lot better quality food elsewhere for this price."
    dined on 10/11/2012
  • "GOOD STEAK, GOOD WINE, DISAPPOINTED IN CHUNKY CHIPS, THEY WEREN'T CHUNKY, I HAVE HAD FAR BETTER IN LOTS OF OTHER STEAK HOUSES."
    dined on 13/10/2012
  • "I'm Colombian and I wanted to go for so long to Buenos Aires, I'd the Morcilla and the Bife de Chorizo for my main, the sauces specially the Chimichurri were absolutely tasty, We were extremely well looked after by Paula, the waitress from Argentina. It's a shame that they don't do any special offer for top table users. Will be back soon."
    dined on 10/10/2012
  • "The place was practically empty. Service was average and food uninspiring. Not recommended"
    dined on 20/09/2012
  • "Nice restuarant - a little overpriced but overall very good. However, they need to add some soft furnishing or sound attenuators as the noise in the restuarants was very loud (as a result of the number of people in attendance). The noise made it quite an uncomfortable atmosphere."
