Read about this place and went their the first day, got seated quickly, the first thing they do is put downa little plate of tapas which arent really that nice and which they charge you 13 pesos for each, this is about 2pound 25 which doesnt sound much but is the cost of a three course meal in other resteraunts, they do keep pushing stuff at you unasked and add it to the bill, I asked for the steaks well cooked and they came dripping of blood, I sent mine back and it came back still slighty pink, my boyfriend couldnt eat his and after 30 minutes left the resteraunts, when I asked for the bill, they got someone who spoke english only girl in the place that did if there was anything wrong with my fellas steak, i said he asked for well done and its not cooked, they offered to take it back and re cook it but it had been sitting there for half an hour and my boyfriend had already left the resteraount, meal was $300 pesos for 2 cokes 2 beers and 2 small steaks which is £60 which could feed you for a week going out to other resteraunts in the city, went out twice a day in the city for a week and never had a meal as expensive or bad, do not go not worth it, plenty of other places to get great steak at a tenth of the cost,
Favorite Dish: The pepper that comes with the cover charge are okay
This restaurant is located in an area of Buenos Aires called "Puerto Madera". This area is near the seaport and was completely renovated in 1991. It consists of a string of restaurants and some businesses situated along the waterfront. The ambience at night is awesome, very romantic. We ate dinner sitting on this restaurant's verandah. If it gets too chilly, there's heated air blowing from the porch's ceiling to chase away the coolness. The service is first rate, the food is delicious. I LOVED the Argentine beef and had the best filet mignon here! For dessert I ordered the cheesecake and they served 2 pieces!!! I would defintely recommend this restaurant, although a bit pricier because everything's ala carte, it's still cheaper than the finest restaurant in the States and well worth it!
Favorite Dish: Any Argentine Beef is delicious. We ordered Beef from many different restaurants and did not get a bad piece of meat. Also, it's cooked exactly the way you want it the first time...no sending it back while your dinner partner waits for your dinner to get cooked properly!!!!
The food here is good but.............if you are looking for a taste of Argentina, this is not it. The restaurant caters mostly to foreigners and it tends to very loud at times.
If you are looking for something more intimate with great food (the meats are to die for) I would suggest La Cabana on Rodriguez Pena 1967, Tel: 4814 0001
I was on a city tour with a guide and my guide took me here.
I did enjoy the steak, I did eat better tasting steaks in Buenos Aires for much cheaper in other Argentine resturants where they serve steaks but no Menu in English. You would need to know someone who lives there or reads and speaks spanish.
Favorite Dish: Steak.
According to past billing this is the premier steak place in Buenos Aires. After eating here I'd have to agree. Great atmoshere along the waterfront in Puerto Madero, which looks alot more active this year than it did last year. It is not cheap for BA standards. It's up to 2 times the prices you'll find in much of Recoleta.
On the night I dined here it looked as though 75% of the patrons were foreigners.
Favorite Dish: I believe, I had what would be the equivelent of filet mignon. Perfectly prepared medium. With a good Malbec. Sides of grilled mushrooms and grilled vegitables.
For those of you not familiar with Argentine cuisine it consists of the following: meat, meat, and more meat. I recommend coming to this place on a COMPLETELY EMPTY STOMACH. You can see from the picture how huge the portions are. Prices are verrrry reasonable thanks to the exchange rate.
According to the guidebook, Cabana Las Lilas is one of the best steakhouses in Argentina. It is located in the up and coming area of Puerto Madero, right on the waterfront. Service was great, as you are served a variety of appetizers within seconds of being seated.
For those of you looking to practice your Spanish, "jugoso" means rare and "bien cocina" means well-done. Other essential phrases are "mas vino" which means "more wine".
This restaurant has to be among the great steakhouses of the world. Dark wook sets the atmosphere as you walk in past their wine cellar and the grill where busy chefs make it all happen. You must come hungry, though, as meals wil be quite filling, but not at the level you find in some of the steakhouses in west Texas, USA. The restaurant raises its own cattle and this is obvious by their incredibly tender beef dishes. Not a beef eater? Then get some of their salmon. By American standards, their wine is pretty much being given away in terms of prices. Great selection from Mendoza valley and their wine list is divided between exceptional and very good wines.
Favorite Dish: You just have to try their "lomo," or tenderloin together with their puree of "calabaza." Life just doesn't get any better than this. And you don't even have to order an appetizer, because before you know it, there will be a huge plate before you full of chicken, salmon, anchiovies, bread, and cheese. And what's more, during our June 2004 visit, dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine and coffee (which they served with an assortment of delicious sweets) came up to about $46 American dollars!
in Puerta Madero, on the river, is this great Argentine steak house. It's beautifully done, and the food is great too. And it keeps coming. Go hungary, because you'll be eating plenty. There are so many types of meat to choose from, and they're ll great, as well as the fish. I went here several times, and each time it was very good.
You get what you pay for in life, and the fact that Cabaña Las Lilas is one of the most expensive parilla restaurants in BA is proof of this: it is without a doubt the best restaurant of its kind in the city. The owner apparently flies in the beef daily from his own cattle ranch (estancia) in the Pampas, the vast grassland region of Argentina famous for producing the best beef in the world.
The food, ambience, service, and water-front location at Cabaña Las Lilas are all outstanding. If you are visiting BA from abroad and only eat at one restaurant, make this the one. If you live here and earn pesos, get your visitors to pick up the tab! (actually, it's still very inexpensive by U.S. standards).
Favorite Dish: Ojo de Bife, "jugoso" (Rib-Eye Steak, medium rare). Before I tried it myself, a friend told me it was so good it made her cry. She was right!
Housed in a modern, converted warehouse along the river in Puerto Madero, this airy parilla restaurant manages is widely considered one of the city's best, and for good reason. The place was not at all touristy but instead filled with an array of Argentinians wearing everything from evening dresses and sports coats to jeans. Service was impeccable. Great wine list also.
Favorite Dish: Grilled beef is the house specialty but every dish seemed divine. I don't eat red meat and had a superb grilled chicken dish with pumpkin mash. Bread was served a few moments after we set down, as is typical in Argentina, yet this was the only restaurant we visited where a designated bread-basket server stopped by every so often to replenish our plates with the most divine selection of breads I've ever seen.
Superb steak ….I can’t compare, but probably one of the bests in town…..if not in the whole world…
Favorite Dish: The baby beef is really great....
We were in four and ordered only one dish for all.....It's enough!
They have great food and great attention. You can notice that in the bill also...
Favorite Dish: Tenderloin steak
