You may have guessed it from our name, but our inspiration is Buenos Aires, and the cafés and restaurants that we knew when we were growing up. After years living in London, we were homesick for Buenos Aires and above all desperate for a good steak. So we decided to create our own place – somewhere you could hang out and relax with family and friends, where you could eat good quality, affordable food, and above all where you could find great steaks, pizza and pasta – just like we used to know at home.

Lovely service and really delicious steaks. Nice and bright room. We haven’t been disappointed so far. Plus they are really family friendly. They have high chairs and baby changing room.

Excellent quality food at an extremely good price for its quality. Lovely interior and nicely tucked away. Would highly recommend requesting the back room. Hidden gem

Such delicious food! I am on a very specific diet (basically meat and veggies) and this is such a treat. The steak is cooked to perfection; and the spatchcock chicken had the most perfectly crispy skin I’ve ever tasted. Yes it is expensive when compared to some of the high street chains in Greenwich, but the quality is so high that I think it’s worth it. Plus I would much rather give my money to a local business.

Great place, amazing food, a rib eye steak to die for. Best to go on Tuesday or Thursday when they have live music. We went last week when guitarist Guillermo and singer Maria Laura were performing. Shame we couldn’t stay for too long, as their repertoire was great.

Good place for brunch, thought the English breakfast was very good and came with slightly spiced sausage and back bacon instead of rashers. Restaurant was warm on a chilly but sunny day given glasshouse type construction at the back.

They had run out of a few things we wanted and the place was empty for much of our meal despite being marathon day (although it livened up later on). Food was tasty though.

We have been a number of times and it's alwasy been lovely food. This was the first time we tried the 'set menu at lunchtime' and it will also be the last time. The steak is usually excellent however on this occassion it was a flat steak and 2 of the 3 were far too well cooked despite asking for 'less well done' (that was the choice...more done or less done). The waitress didn't ask if we'd like extras from the menu, so we just got chips with it. I had a soup starter and that was good. My two companions had goats cheese on slices of tomatoes. Didn't look appatasing at all. I would reccomend the restaurant but NOT the set menu. I'd rather they didn't do it than do sub par food. Very dissapointed.

Thoroughly enjoyable. The food was of good quality. The kids menu was varied and, again, excellent quality and delicious. The restaurant has a lovely outdoor seating area, which is non-smoking, so you don’t have the threat of someone’s smoke ruining your meal experience. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, and indeed, it was not our first visit here!

Positives:
Nice dining area at the back.
Food was of very good quality.
Staff service was slow to start to take drinks order but after that was attentive, friendly and not intrusive. Knew the menu well when questioned about certain dishes.
Three quality courses, bottle of nice Malbec, beer and spirit to finish meal = £116. Good value.
Negatives:
Horrendously noisy (table of 8 and table of 6 in) and Saturday evening doesn't appear to be for a romatic night out.
However, manager recognised our discomfort and moved us to the front of restaurant for dessert and drinks which was nice and quiet.

This was my second visit and not as great as the first. Items were not available on the menu and not explained by waiter whilst ordering. Items ordered were a steak and pizza, which were ok at best. Pity, as I had high hopes for this restaurant.

Mother’s Day.

Service was average. Pudding - trifle was awful.

Ordered a £54 bottle Pinot noir and got a house Pinot noir! Yuk.

Sorry Buenos Aires we’re loyal clients of yours in blackheath and Greenwich but was expecting some lovely music for Mother’s Day ☹️

Unchanging comfort food menu in a nice room. The execution sometimes fails unfortunately. The ribs are usually excellent here but this time served luke warm. The wine never disappoints and the seemingly home made desert was very good.

We walked into Buenos Aires cafe for a quick bite. The pancakes / crepes that we ordered were so legitimately disappointing. It was floury and almost seemed to have been made a long while ago. Underwhelming to say the least. The ambience at the back of the cafe is lovely. But that’s about it in its redeeming qualities.

A decent place serving comfort food Argentinian style at reasonable prices. The pizzas are great and the rack of ribs is my favourite! Point off for never changing the menu and having a never ending ‘special’ that never changes. The wine list offers a very good choice of Argentinian wines and for me that is the highlight! Great music during the week.

It’s the 2nd time we’ve been. 1st time was excellent but this time was let down by some young inexperienced staff, order mistakes and a rump salad that was half an iceberg, a small bit of grated carrot, the odd olive and crouton and an under whelming amount of steak lost in the sea of iceberg. It’s a shame as based on this experience it’s unlikely we will go back, although we appreciate that it can be a great place to eat as the restaurant is lovely (as was our first experience here)

Lovely food but severely let down by poor service. Took ages to take our order after seating us, waitress looked glazed over, forgetting orders and not being attentive at all. Considering how much we paid for the food, they forgot we ordered the meat platter for 3 people and delivered only 2 portions, and they forgot to bring one of our drinks and didn’t apologise for forgetting when we reminded her. All in all great food but I probably wouldn’t go back because of the service.

Usually visit the Blackheath branch for lunch on Christmas Eve but it was fully booked so booked a table instead at the Greenwich branch.
Having decided what we wanted, we were told the lunch menu wasn’t on that day (despite it being lunchtime and its lack of availability hadn’t been mentioned when we were given the menus). Two of us had to quickly choose something else anopted for pasta, which wasn’t particularly good.
We’ll book Blackheath well in advance next year...
