Top 5 Places for Steak in BA

Don Julio: We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, there’s no place like Don Julio for a mandatory sample of Argentine meat. A relaxed homey environment, good wine but most of all a great place to satiate your inner carnivore.  Guatemala 4691, Palermo. 4831-9564.

El Pobre Luis- Luis Acuña is the Uruguayan owner of this popular parrilla in the Belgrano area. Decorated with football shirts and offering some Uruguayan specialties as well as traditional Argentine asado cuts (which they cut themselves!) this is undoubtedly a meat eaters heaven. Arribeños 2393, Belgrano. 4780-5847.

Parrilla Rolaso: This neighborhood parrilla serves abundant portions of top quality meat cooked to perfection. The service is good, they have a good wine selection and their own refrigerated wine cave. Julián Alvarez 600, Villa Crespo. 4854-8411

El Obrero: This mythical restaurant in La Boca decorated with football paraphernalia and antique wooden furniture, is another great option for good quality asado although they also serve other great traditional meals. Definitely a place to try, although preferably during the day as the area is a little dodgy at night. Caffarena 64, La Boca. 4362-9912

Cabaña Las Lilas: Because they serve their own beef, this famous upscale Puerto Madero restaurant is a safe bet for a great quality dinner or lunch . Popular amongst tourists and generally crowded it is best to book in advance. Avenida Alicia Moreau de Justo 516, Puerto Madero. 4313 1336.

Guests staying at our Terrace Suite can also make use of the grill. Instructions on how to make an asado are available here, or otherwise the front desk can arrange for an asador to come and make it for you!
