So El Tano is a legend for a reason. It's an old school all-you-can-eat place where you will reach your limit. Everything was tasty and served fast, we laughed at our attempt to keep the pace, it's just too much food! We were served classic 'cheap' cuts (chorizo, morcilla, chinchulin, riñón) for starters, classic grilled Provolone cheese, then came in... More

This is a typical Argentinian parrilla. You will not find anything fancy or pretentious in this place. It's a place where locals go with their families. There's no menu.

Our Argentinian friend told us that we had to tell them 'no más' or they would just keep bringing the food. Starve yourself before you go, because this... More

The service is great and the food too. You must prepare yourself to eat as if there is no tomorrow. All types of meat, chicken, pork, cheese. They have salad too, if you find some space on the table. And when you think you can't eat anything else for the next week, they will offer you the dessert. And guess... More

I went there with my Spanish school friends. We have a big parrillada with some cool Argentine wine. For me it was to much meat!, but everything was very good. I loved the chimichurry or something like that.

So for me this was the best steak house we went too. Don't get me wrong I did not eat one bad steak while in Argentina for 7 weeks. However this place did it right for the backpacker. With great meat options huge delicious sides ( go with the provencial potatoes) and a good bottle of Malbec this place become... More

The food was great. The bife de chorizo was the best. Service is soso but the price is good. In general is a nice place, perhaps a bit noisy
