Great food, superb Argentinian gin and wine. Only overshadowed by the exceptional service.

With real Argentinian beef, the steaks on the Buenos Aires menu are sublime.

    The food was very good as usual. We weren't offered the lunch deal, although the flyer was included when we received our bill so it was still going. Unfortunately, the service was painfully slow. Drinks arrived promptly, but there was a very long wait for everything else. The restaurant was fairly empty and yet we still had to call the waiter over for our orders to be taken. Had it not been for the slow service, I would have given it 4 or 5 stars.

    There were seven male diners in our group, all over 45 years of age. Our table was booked for 20:30. When we arrived, we were greeted and shown to our table. The restaurant is in an excellent location, so we wondered why it wasn't bursting at the seams! In fact, the place looked empty? On first thoughts, we felt that this wasn't a good sign, but the night was still young. Our waitress Sara was excellent and deserves a special mention. If it is possible via this review to pass on our positive feedback to her, that would be great. She gave us her undivided attention, and offered advice on choice selections on food and drinks. We ordered varying drinks - cocktails, beer and wine. They were all very nice, but just a little expensive. The Alhambra beer was particularly good. There were 5 different selections of starter chosen by our group, and everyone enjoyed what they had. Our group chose four different selections of main course, with six choosing steak, of varying type and size. There was one lamb chops meal chosen, and a selection of varying side dishes. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meals, and no one offered any negative comments. Four diners had a sweet, and most finished with coffee. We received excellent service throughout our dining experience, and were all full at the end. This was an excellent evening, with everyone enjoying their meal. Although there were not many diners in the restaurant, this didn't affect the ambience as we were too consumed in our own company. The restaurant is well decorated, clean and well lit, with nice background music.The bill came to £499.43 which already included the gratuity. Each diner paid £71.00, and all thought it was good value for money. I would certainly dine there again, and would recommend it to friends. Thank you for handling the booking.
