Buenos Aires Argentine Steakhouse in Richmond is a brand new branch opened in April 2014. Undoubtedly the star of the show is the beef: one of Argentina's most recognised iconic foods, cooked on an authentic parrilla (barbecue) and combined with Argentina’s most traditional cuisine varieties.

We believe that our concept, which combines authentic cuisine with quality ingredients, world-class wines and a vibrant atmosphere makes a unique dining experience. We will hopefully continue to grow and expand in the future as we feel we represent Argentina with passion and pride!

Been to this restaurant (quite) a few times over the last 3 years.
Always happy to delight myself with great Argentinian food.

Steaks were great as you would expect but accompaniments were average at best. I had told them we were celebrating a birthday but there was no acknowledgement of that. The waiting staff were all very nice but struggled to understand us at times and didn't seem very interested. They didn't seem to know the menu very well. The environment is OK but nothing special. Happy to pay for a good steak but it seemed overpriced given nothing was special beyond the steaks themselves. I might go back, but wouldn't be in a particular hurry to do so...

Nice and friendly place. Steaks are good except on the salad which was far from what we had as a main course. 4 steaks tasting is a good option. Bit noisy.

Casual, late evening dinner for 2 in a lively atmosphere. Great food (11 oz rump was cooked to perfection with absolutely zero fat, chicken extremely tasty). Staff really lively and friendly, made us feel very welcome. Only slight down: our table was by the servery on the way to the loo. Nonetheless this didn’t mar the experience, just make sure you ask for a more central table. For me, better steak than the big rival Argentian restaurant albeit without the riverside setting. Recommended without hesitation.

Great food, staff couldn’t have been better. It’s busy and loud, so if you’re after a quiet meal I’d go else where. If you want great steak and great wine, it’s perfect.

Good quality meat, badly cooked. Asked for medium rare got rare, returned and cooked longer, but still not quite right.
Plus fat wasn’t properly cooked so lots of white fleshy fat.
Overall the whole thing was hard work to cut, not sure if that’s a reflection of their steak knives as well as how badly cooked the meat was.

Staff are always amazing. They get to know you personally and make every visit special. Wine list good and comprehensive.
The food never lets you down and is very authentically Argentinian. It is exceptional value for money.
My only slightly negative remark is the noise level which makes it difficult for conversation sometimes but I’m not sure they can do anything about that. I highly recommend this restaurant at any time of the day for a snack and coffe through to a lovely evening meal out with friends!

Tables a little too close together, and portion sizes could be marginally larger for the price, but overall a visually striking venue with perfect service and one of the best steaks I have ever eaten.

Our first visit to Buenos Aires after meaning to visit for a long time.
It is a lovely looking restaurant inside, but it was the service from the lovely staff here that was the best bit. The service was really excellent.
Unfortunately this restaurant could be great but is let down terribly by the food.
The starters were nice and the steaks were OK. The side dishes however are really bad and extremely small. They really need to review this. The green salad that came with my steak, was withered, undressed and very sad looking. Creamed spinach was more liquid than spinach. Extremely unappealing. Fillet steaks were just OK.
Accompanying steak sauces were nice.
Such a shame as. Is could be a great restaurant, if more attention was given to the quality of dishes being presented!
Sadly will not return.

The restaurant had great ambiance. The tables were arranged so nobody was in someone else's Private, Personal Space. Wednesday's menu of a drink and 3 courses for £19.50 was very good. Choices for the starter, also for the main course and dessert gave plenty of variety. The steak was delicious and was cooked just as we like to eat it. We will recommend it to our friends and will visit again.

I would go back as I didn’t have a particularly fantastic meal although friends have always recommended it as a chain. My ribeye steak was of very poor quality chewy and full of grisl . I have honestly had better from a supermarket cooked myself for sixth of the cost! It was also rare when I had asked for medium rare making the consistency worse. It was very late so forced myself to eat most of it out of hunger! My husbands on the other hand was very tender and tasty... almost as though it was from a completely different cut of meat! They did take off the cost of the smaller steak , and gave us a piece of cheesecake to say sorry! I have been a manager in a large chain restaurant and although they could’ve done better like offer a free meal or a bottle of wine in addition, they were very apologetic and friendly , and did try to resolve the issue. It was too late for a replacement as kitchen was closed !!!
Will return just not sure it will be to Richmond , the excuse for poor quality was a busy service.... should be trained and equipped to deal with unexpected increases in trade !

I booked a table for me and two of my frineds, we were celebrating my friend’s birthday. I requested a nice table with sofa seats and it was all organized as I wanted. They even put a candle in our dessert, even though I did not ask for it :D The meal was amazing we ordered medalions, fillet and rib-eye. All were cooked apropriately, looked amazing and were sooo tasty. We are a big funs of steaks and Buenos Aires did not dissapoint us :D good place! Highly recommended! Will be back :)

Always enjoy my visits here and never had a bad meal. The manageress, who I've chatted to before, as well as all the waiting staff, were great on this occasion. Food was good quality and decent bottle of Malbec very enjoyable. Good atmosphere with high ceilings make the space bright and airy. Not a bargain but good value nonetheless. Will be back again soon.....

Love this place.. The food is lovely and having been a few times I've never had a bad meal. Its not bad price wise either and especially liked on the bill that they are charging only a 10% service charge plus they make a point of stating its definitely an option rather than making you feel uncomfortable about not wanting to pay it if that is your preference like some other places I've been to recently. Overall a great night out I will be back.

Although the food was good, it was slightly let down by the service. The order was received incorrectly and the service staggered. I also felt that it was confusin as to whom was actually our waitron. Overall a good everyday steakhouse but I’ve had better value for money at other steak restaurants.
