    It is more a steak house rather than an Argentinian restaurant. Not to be misguided by the name of the restaurant. Friendly and efficient staff. But the meat is not from Argentina. The empanadas pastry is not the right one. The chimichurri sauce not quite right either. Pretty loud and difficult to hold a conversation without having to shout.

    Very nice place. Familiar! Quiet and clean, no smell of food on the clothes when you go out. Personnel speaks Spanish and English and the guy welcome us in a very nice way. We were in 2, Italians. But it is warmly suggested also for family with children. Food fresh, good and absolutely well prepared. Very nice environment. Posto bellissimo, cibo ottimo(e siamo italiani esigenti), la bistecca era deliziosa così come la provola e il purè! Cameriere gentile e molto simpatico. Clima casalingo e tranquillo adatto anche ai bambini!

    Was looking for an Argentinian parilla and this is very authentic. They serve sweetbreads as a starter. Food very good and reasonably priced. Wine a bit pricey but excellent Malbec.

    Good but slightly overpriced. Most of the cheaper bottles of wine were around 30 to 40 pounds. They also add their own 12% service charge on the menu without asking (and I don't recall seeing this on the menu), which I think is a bit cheeky. Also, be warned, the restaurant seems to be popular with families with kids, who were quite noisy and annoying on the night I went (a Sunday).

    Very good argentinian steak house. Excelent Tomahawk steak which we divided in 3. The octopus was also very delicious. Good sides portion. Great for a group of friends or family. Joyful atmosphere and nice salsa and tango music. I would definitely recommend it.

    I think a good indicator of a restaurant is when people who grew up with that cuisine are regulars there... That is certainly the case with Chimis... It's a place where one always feels welcome, where nothing is too much trouble and it just has a lovely friendly and relaxed vibe. The food is good - most of it from the open grill (as one might expect!). The steak was cooked exactly as requested and was delicious. The sides can be quite large but doggie bags are available. The wine choice is great (plenty of malbec!) and the Alfajor ice cream for dessert is absolutely worth saving space for!

    Chimichurris never fails to deliver fabulous food, combined with family-friebd warm and flawless service. Food is palat blowing, non pretentious, straight forward, how a true Argentine experience should be. You do not need gold-coated steaks, if you catch ny drift. Here the whole experienced is golden and... amazing value for money so. If I were you... I would just click reserve and no... I am not a paid to write this, I am a man of honour and cosider it a must say.

    Great food. Excellent service. Perhaps we went a bit early for dinner but there were a lot of families with young children. Natural for a lot of noise. There were times my husband and I couldn’t hear each other! We will definitely go again but later in the evening
