Argentinian
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.

    The food was great, but we left feeling unsure whether it was good value. Expensive for a chain restaurant.

    We were rather disappointed with this restaurant after wanting to visit for a long time. Our waiter was lovely, but unfortunately described a different meal to the one we ordered. But we only found this out after he brought our order to the table. Our steaks were all overcooked. We kept the medium rares, but had to send the rare back as that was medium- well done. One of the sausages on the sharing platter was completely charred, but they kindly replaced that for us. There was plenty of food on the platter, but most items came in pairs, which was awkward on a platter for 3 people. The Argentinian style fries were cold, but we didn't say anything as felt we had complained enough! Service was a rather slow, but dessert was really good, the wine that was recommended was nice, so overall it was not a bad experience. But the main meals really could have been better.

    My other half was at home for Christmas so we had our own celebratory meal at BAC. I cannot recommend this place enough. Staff were rushed off their feet and utterly delightful. Food is all tasty and delicious and reasonably priced. We will definitely be coming back.

    A nice lunch out but nothing special. It looks a bit sad to be served one massive chorizo sausage with a tiny limp bit of salad on the side. The empanada was rather blackened on top.

    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.

    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.
