A great steak restaurant in a great setting. The Chorizo sausage and black pudding were all good as well as the steak tartare. The steak tartare was deconstructed for presentation purposes and you had to mix all the ingredients yourself at the table. I prefer they mix it in the kitchen as bits tend to fly off the plate onto... More

The restaurant is located in Puerto Madero very close to a well known restaurant Cabana Las Lilas. We ate at the restaurant the first night in BA after a long flight from the US. The restaurant is decent. The food is good and the service is average. I would go to other restaurants in the area if I had a... More

Went here for lunch - lots of great meat dishes but if you wanted to go lighter, they served some excellent meal size salads and breads for lunch. Get a spot outside if there is room. Nice views while you enjoy your meal.

We were recommended this restaurant which sits next to the river and were told it was gonna be "expensive". We had two starters, 1kg grilled baby beef and a rather nice bottle of red. The food was excellent - the quality of the meat is absolutely fantastic and the size is absolutely enormous. What surprised me the most is the... More

My wife and I had lunch here on New Year's eve and ate outside on covered patio over looking the harbor. We had the Porterhouse for two with grilled veggies and potatoes. The steak was the most flavorful I've ever had and it was also very tender and cooked perfectly. It was about 2" thick and evenly cooked. We also... More

We ate here by accident, as it was way past 3pm and the other nearby restaurants were closed for lunch already. They had a gourmet menu with all included (entree, main course + side dish of your choosing + desert + glass of wine + glass of non-alcoholic beverage or water) for $349 pesos each until 4pm and we went...

This is a beautiful restaurant with very friendly service. It is located in one of the nicest sections of Puerto Madero and surrounded by a few other excellent Argentine beef restaurants. As shown in one of the attached photos, our water was very friendly and a touch on the comic side. He provided great friendly service and our meals came... More

Description
LA CABAÑA is the most traditional restaurant in Buenos Aires. Established in 1935, it serves the best Argentine beef on the grill accompanied by excellent wine, a menu that turned La Cabaña into a source of inspiration for local cooking and that has been widely replicated all over the town.We invite you to enjoy any of our grilled beef cuts and, if you are willing to wait for an hour, you can have a unique experience tasting our classic "Great Baby Beef" - we suggest you do, savoring a glass of wine and in nice company.You do not get to know the purest Argentine cuisine without visiting our restaurant.

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighbourhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighbourhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolise this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
