  • La Bistecca, Buenos Aires, Argentina: All Your Can Eat but Crowded - Get a Reservation

    The restaurant is located at Puerto Madero waterfront on the Río de la Plata riverbank- a good location and not far from downtown. The all you can eat restaurant is very crowded, especially on week nights and weekends. Call for a reservation. Ask for a window table for a view of the riverbank. Otherwise, you'll be seated in an area where tables of 10, 12 or more are set up for tourists groups. There's a lot to select at the self-service veggies and salad tables - dessert too. Lines get long for a selection of sausage, steak and chicken, only because the cooks place small portions on your plate. You must ask for more meat and chicken to avoid going back and waiting on line again. Speak up. A bottle of wine is expensive - even for a glass of wine. You must ask for tap water (it's drinkable - no problem) or you'll be brought a small bottle of bottled water and pay for it. Tips aren't included. However, there's a table charge per person - just for sitting at a table. The food is average. Few waiters speak English. Same with the folks at the front door when you enter the restaurant and you are asked "do you have a reservation." Don't walk back to your downtown hotel at night. Take a taxi. The surrounding neighborhood at Puerto Madero is not very safe from petty street crime.

    Favorite Dish: The grilled chicken. It was grilled perfectly - unlike the sausage and steak.

    La Bifsteka: La Bifsteka--a variety of foods

    Along the waterfront at Puerto Madero

    We dined at La Bifsteka because it was part of our hotel package. The restaurant was located in Puerto Madero and within walking distance to the Floating Casino. Since our visit, I've seen other travelers rating this as a fairly decent place to eat.

    The restaurant had a spacious dining area and offered an extensive buffet with many assorted choices. We witnessed patrons filling their plates many times over as they sampled the selections. We found it to our liking due to its site near the waterfront.

    A lighted walkway threaded along the waterway almost to the casino, then one had to cross the road to the casino. At that point, it was every man for himself! Watch crossing, the cars move swiftly.

    Favorite Dish: The variety of foods made it easy to choose something we each liked.

    La Bistecca: Great pasta

    by Shakermaker Written Mar 1, 2005

    In La Bistecca you pay (in don't remember exactly but it's something around U$S 10) and you can eat as much as you want. They serve excellent pasta, they also have great ham, cheese, pizza, meet and a wide variety of deserts.
    The place is really nice and modern.
