Steakhouses in Buenos Aires, Argentina


Steak lovers who are lucky enough to tour Buenos Aires, while visiting Argentina, need to read our list of the best steakhouses in Buenos Aires. There is no better time to enjoy a juicy steak from one of Buenos Aires’ best restaurants.

By evening, start looking for the best “parrilla” (steakhouse) in town. Argentina´s most popular meal is the “Asado” or “parrillada”, a mixed grill of steak and a variety of other cuts, including meat and sausages. Restaurants that specialize in this kind of food are known as “parrillas”. You can find hundreds of them throughout the city of Buenos Aires.

1. La Cabrera

First on our list of best steak restaurants in Buenos Aires is one of the most popular restaurants amongst tourists, this restaurant – located in the trendy neighborhood of Palermo – is usually extremely busy, so it is paramount to make a reservation. But rest assured that it is popular for a reason:

La Cabrera takes pride in its quality steaks in generous sizes that guarantee its status as one of the best steak restaurants in town. For the more adventurous traveler who doesn’t make a reservation, you can queue outside and wait for a table. The restaurant hands out beef empanadas to keep your hunger at bay until you get inside.

La Cabrera Address: José A. Cabrera 5127, Buenos Aires

2. La Brigada

If you want a more traditional take on the Argentine parrilla and steak you can cut with a spoon, then you’ll need to visit the bohemian and historical neighborhood of San Telmo. La Brigada offers excellent food and great service, but if you want to eat for a little less, you could try El Desnivel, located around the block (Defensa 855) This is where the locals go to eat.

Outside of the restaurants, you might come across dancers making a Tango Tour through the cobblestone streets. Giving you a taste of Buenos Aires’s other great claim to fame.
