We say

This tiny Argentinian restaurant is an established favourite on uber-trendy Broadway Market. It’s one for meat lovers only, as the house speciality is huge charcoal-grilled steaks, all imported from Argentina. If you’re super-hungry, go for the two-person Parrillada Deluxe – 14oz prime sirloin, 11oz grilled rib-eye steak, two Argentine-style pork sausages, black pudding and provolone cheese. And if you’ve got still got space, round things off with crème caramel or almond flan. The restaurant features simple decor, with the odd photographic exhibition hung on the walls, and a warm Latin American welcome. Their impressive wine list is exclusively Argentinian, but you can sample Spanish, Cuban and Belgian beers.

Best steak in London!!! ★★★★★

I can honestly say, whole heartedly, that this is the best steak i've ever had in my life. Short of going to Argentina myself and rearing a cow to eventually grill, it doesn't get more authentic. I highly recommend the Parrillada deluxe – because you get to watch all your cuts being charcoal grilled in front of you. Ours was a little too rare at first – but it wasn't a problem for these guys as in what seemed like 2 seconds the meat was back on the grill and then served to perfection. Whatever steak you go for, you MUST get the provolone cheese accompaniment– you've honestly yet to know what 'melt in the mouth' feels like until you try a bit of their steak dipped in the cheese. Can't recommend this place enough.
