    The wonderful people who work here serve your steaks on a coal fired grill - on your own table. Order a little on the rare side and just let it cook for a while on your table. Argentine restaurants have the biggest, juiciest steaks on the planet. La Estancia is probably the best steak house in Argentina. One steak is probably enough to fill up 2 people. You can watch the chefs prepare your meat and/or fish in the window and you get to enjoy their absolutely wonderful creations. It’s always busy here, but there are always tables and plenty of room. A real dinning pleasure for carnivores. La Estancia has been feeding people very well for over 50 years (since 1962).

    They also serve delicious fresh salads and have a fantastic wine list. Everything is good here! Everything.

    They have a great Tango & Folklore Show every night except Sunday with a set meal.

    Please feel free to add this to your "Custom Travel Guide" and print it off before you go!

    I have eaten here twice, in different years, and they are always fantastic.

    Favorite Dish:

    Steak! Any steak!

    La Estancia: Fantastic service, spectacular food!

    I always come here for the steaks and a cold Quilmes. Want a great piece of meat at a fair price, then La Estancia the place to experience.. Located in the capital on Lavalle st. (pronounced "Le Vache") Order the executive meal and get a meat empanada, a salad, bread, T-Bone steak a soda or a 1/2 bottle of Argentinian wine. For desert you have your choice of fruit cocktail or ice cream and a cafe'..... All for 85 pesos or $20.00 USD..............Need I say more?

    Favorite Dish: All the different meats and the way they're prepared.

    La Estancia: Tourist trap!

    Just had my first Argentine asado experience and boy was I disappointed! Went with some Argentine friends who hadn't been there in years and we all agreed that the quality of the meat and service was below par! We ordered the "matambrito" which was like eating the sole of your shoe and as dry as Patagonia.. . Told the waiter and he only turned around in disgust saying that it was good.. Don't reccomend going here when there are so many good restaurants in Buenos Aires to chose from.. This is the typical tourist trap located in the decadent Lavalle pedestrian street.. Skip this restaurant and the street in general unless you're going out for a late night movie!

    Favorite Dish: Had a terrible experience so I don't have a favorite!

    Fuimos con un amigo americano. Por empezar, el salon de arriba sale mas caro. ES MENTIRA que sale igual que abajo. Al momento de pagar, el mozo (un señor muy anciano) EXIGIO propina diciendo TIP! TIP! todo el tiempo. No se fue hasta que no le dimos la propina en la mano a pesar que te cobran el servicio de mesa aparte. Muy desagradable!!!
    We went with an american friend. Upstairs is much more expensive than downstairs. Then the maitre didnt leave until we give him his tip and he asked for a lot of money because myfriend was not argentine. Tourists, Watch out!!!
