Red wine was expensive and served really COLD which spoilt the quality of the wine.
The table we were allocated was near to the air conditioning unit and blew hot and then cold it was affected by the opening of the toilet door.
Food was all ok

We went to Buenos Aires for our 7th anniversary. We booked in advance, which was definitely a good idea as there wasn't an empty seat in the restaurant. Both myself and my partner had rump steak, which was delicious. The mash was smooth and creamy and the chips light and fluffy. We finished with cocktails and a complimentary glass of fizz given to us by our waiter on account of our anniversary.

WAITED WELL OVER ONE HOUR FOR FOOD. HAD TO KEEP ASKING WHERE OUR DRINKS HAD GOT TO. ORDERED TWO BOTTLES OF WINE, ONLY ONE ARRIVED. NOBODY ASKED IF THINGS WERE OK. THEN THEY HAD THE CHEEK TO AUTOMATICALLY ADD A SERVICE CHARGE TO THE BILL !!! WE HAD IT REMOVED - VERY VERY POOR AND OVER PRICED - £31 FOR A BOTTLE OF ROSE ??

Didn’t get our meal for an hour, chips were overdone and hard, steak was delicious but that is all that saved it. Very cheap alcohol used in the expensive cocktails, really wouldn’t ever come again.

We visited on Saturday pre booked for 7 even though we were a little late, we had starters, main and desert and we was out by 8:30. The starters were really nice especially the beef skewers highly recommend.

Visited this restaurant for a birthday meal on Sunday night awful experience my food came out cold and the steak was so hard, when I mentioned it to the member of staff he just said it’s the fat you won’t be able to cut through that.. but that was the whole steak you couldn’t eat any. Over priced for what you get. The waiter then ignored us when we asked for the bill we had to go up and ask to pay. I explained I just wanted to leave as the experience had been bad and the man offered to take off the optional service charge for our trouble! It was optional anyway. Wouldn’t recommend nearly £70 for hard steak and cold chips go else where.

Amazing steaks! We had a very knowledgeable waiter who advises us on the best way our steaks should be cooked . It's not cheap, but for the quality of food and service it's worth every penny!

Great quality food, cooked perfectly. The staff had great knowledge and advice on the menu too. It was a triple celebration for our party and the staff brought over 3 dulce de leche shots for the 3 people celebrating on the house. I’d highly recommend this place over somewhere such as Miller & Carter etc. This is much better and a more personal and intimate atmosphere.

This was a first time visit for a decent steak and what we received was very good. I have had better, but the food here was of a high standard and I would recommend it to anyone. There was, however, one exception and that was the pancake which was neither hot nor fresh. It was leathery around the edges.
I felt the "sides" were a bit expensive but otherwise felt costs were about right.
My biggest gripe was the noise; it caused problems trying to hold a reasonable conversation.

Burger was way overcooked and inedible. It was returned and the replacement acceptable. My partner has finished her meal before the replacement burger arrived. Paid in excess of £77 and was offered NO discount. Very unhappy, would not recommend.
