Fantastic food, service was really friendly and attentive. Seating was a little snug in our part of the restaurant but otherwise spacious in other areas

Have been going here for many years now and it has always been a very good, if a little expensive, experience.

Tonight, although the food was good, the service was distinctly below average and not what we were expecting.

Waiters forgetting to bring out our starters order and then expecting us not to be bothered and wanting us to rush straight to our mains!!! Sorry, no and we asked for what we had ordered to be brought out although it seemed too much trouble for the lady in charge and she took forever to bring them.

Completely forgot about us with our desert menus and rather than wait any longer than the 10 minutes we already had, I asked for the bill!!

The head waiter was somewhat surprised when I asked her to remove the service charges that she had already added to our bill!!!! Unbelievable! Maybe she should read this review back!!

Won’t be going here again, which is a shame as it used to be so very good. Not any more I’m afraid.👎👎

Perfect evening apart from waiting at the end to not be asked if we wanted desert resulting in us getting the bill and leaving

During dinner a strong pungent smell permutated through the restaurant on making an enquiry i was informed it was a type of Argentine cheese being cooked , is there no extraction in the kitchen ?? it may be an aquired taste to some, but it was most offensive to my party otherwise all was perfect.

Very expensive for what you get. Not much choice with side dishes and what you did get was small. Also wine excessively expensive!

We've been coming here for a while, and it was one of our favourites. Expensive, but always great food, and just always really well cooked. This might be really picky, but they've taken fries off the menu and only do thick chips. We love fries, especially the ones you used to do here, there was just something about them that was great. The thick chips were so oily that we didnt really eat them. I feel like you've also changed your peppercorn sauce, it just wasnt as tasty.
A little disappointed, and there are a few other restaurants in maidstone that might just pip you to the post now.

We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and with 5 children we saved hard for our night out i wrote amd told them it was a special night and would appreciate maybe some petals or anything on the table.... we areived early so we could enjoy a drink before when the floor manager came to day we could sit at our table àt 7.20 even tho ours was booked for 8 she was not impressed amd huffed off..... she was rude to her bar staff whilst one was trying to train the other.....
Rheb when we were seated our starter came which was tiny and not being rude but our waitress absolutly stunk of BO we then waited 45 mins for our main and it was not nice.... beef was so chewy and my partner chicken was so dry we didnt even bother with desert all the while the waitress was hovering and really putting us off the food with the cleaniness.... really disappointed and upset

Great food. Service was slow at times, Our table water was forgotten and we had to chase up the sauces we requested. Not enough to ruin our meal, but there is room for improvement

The steak was amazing, melt in the mouth, service generally was good although a bit rushed/flustered. One waitress came after us as we forgot our jumper - thank you!
The only criticism is the blue cheese sauce, it tasted more like cream then blue cheese but apart from that the food and wine was amazing! Thank you

Staff were hard to get hold of at times but then again the restaurant was packed. The steak was pricey but brilliant (you get what you pay for), one of the best I have tasted, and will definitely be going back

Sat at table next to front door and every time someone came into the restaurant or walked past our table we got a gust of freezing cold air which made our visit uncomfortable. The food was lovely and service was good too. Definitely would go again but would request to sit further into the restaurant.

This is a beautiful Restaurant with amazing Steaks to offer. The atmosphere is relaxing and calming.
The prices are rather high but your paying for amazing steak what else do you expect. This is a place to take your other half for a birthday or something special.
The Cocktails are rather nice also. I do recommend.

Good food and service, I liked the design with the tango paintings. But it was quite expensive and they added on a 10% tip which I think should be optional.

One of our favourite restaurants in Maidstone. Service was exceptional and the fillet steak was one of the best I’ve tasted.
It’s an expensive meal but worth every penny.

Buenos Aires is by far my favourite restaurant. We dine here about 15 times a year. Always having the Lomo steak which is cooked to perfection. The olives are the tastiest olives around.
The service is brilliant and they always manage to find us a table even on busy nights.

Great place for romantic date, family dinner or friends night out. I've been going for years and introduced my boyfriend a few nights ago to the amazing food and he loved it. The quality of the and what you get for the price is great and on top of that the people working their are friendly and efficient - cant recommend it enough!

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
