WOW! We are foodies and have been around the world quite a bit. First time we went to El Che was in December of 2015 and our minds were blown away! Since then we traveled to 17 countries (Argentina included) and we were literally counting days until we gonna get back there. Can't believe this place is almost empty all... More

The place is not bad, the service is good and the stake is tender, however the price is a bit high for what you get.

Great steak every single time. Get the Churrasco. Old school service staff, great location, tucked away. Although I wouldn't suggest anything else but the Churrasco, they're simply the best at it.

Cute neighborhood place with small intimate rooms for dining on a good steak or local fare. Very good sangria too. Best thing was the service which could rival any five star restaurant.

I stumbled upon the place, and was relatively pleased with the signature steak in I got. Ordered the smaller portion but I am guessing it was at least 10-12 oz. The steak was cooked perfectly, and went well with the fried onion that was on the side. I count it among the better, but definitely not the best, of the... More

Get the Churrasco, it's like warm butter in your mouth. Best steak in the city. Service is pretty good as well.

This is a very small place located between Parque Lleras and Parque Poblado, it is a great place to take your date if you wish to have a pleasant conversation and a good meal. The menu is very limited, but the food is very good and the staff very friendly and accommodating. There are 3 tables in the back garden... More

That a my second time inThis place. It is very simple, if you do not have a tip or recommendation you may not get in there. The beef is made over charcoal , and it is best if it comes red inside. It was very tender and tasty again but I missed some side dishes and another option of beef,... More

It is very expensive but it is perfect for meat lovers. It is probably the best Churrasco steak in the city. I have only been there on special occasions but have also definetly enjoyed it every time.
