They got fresh meat and grill right when you order. The ambience is relaxed and not the snooty type. The waiters were very attentive and would suggest the dish or wine you need to try if you don't have any idea. Open for lunch and dinner.
Favorite Dish: We went to eat at this restaurant 3 times and we tried the grilled chicken which tasted so good, I ordered the small roasted pig, or cochinillo, it's so good and crispy. Just make sure you tell the waiters you want your meat bien cocido or well done. Try the baked pumpkin is sweet and tasty. For great wines, of course Malbec from Bodega Alta Vista great with meat. With fruity taste love the color too.
El Parrillon is located along "restaurant row" in Recoleta, directly across from the Recoleta Cemetary. You get the distinct impression that the proprieter of this establishment is a big River Plate fan, since the inside of the restaurant is exclusively decorated in River Plate memorabilia.
El Parrillon is your standard Argentine Parilla restaurant. They have there grilling area in full view for passer by to see. They have an indoor seating are and an outdoor seating area.
Favorite Dish: I had the asado(ribs) on one visit with fries.
The Bife de Chorizo with a salad on another visit.
The restaurant is located on the famous restaurant row in Recoleta. I've had dinner here perhaps twenty times, and almost every time it's been perfect. There is an inside dining room and an outside patio, which is good for people watching when the weather is nice. They also have a few seats at the counter that's right in front of the grill. I sit there when I'm dining alone. I get to chat with the cooks and it's a great way to practice my Spanish. The only downside is the prices are a little on the high side when compared to other places of similar, but thats due to its location.
Favorite Dish: My favorite meal is plate of grilled provolone with roasted red peppers, the "Monumental" salad (arugula, chicory, watercress, parm olive oil and lemon), and the Bife' de Lomo cooked rare. A 375ml bottle of Norton Malbec and I'm all set!
