Fodor's Review

It's a couple of extra blocks from downtown and across a little white bridge, but this parrilla is where the locals go for a special night out. You can watch your food as it's cooking: Patagonian lamb and beef ribs roast gaucho style on frames hanging over a circular asador, and an enormous grill along the back wall is full of steaks, chorizos, and morcilla (blood sausage). The whole place is filled with a warm glow despite the lackluster decor. It's slightly more expensive than other parillas in the center of town—and almost always fully booked—but has a classier atmosphere that will make you want to linger for dessert, if you have room.

La Tablita Review

Best meal my whole two weeks in Argentina. The lamb was melting off the bone and unlike any lamb I have ever tasted, dreamed about it for weeks afterward, and clearly still having fond memories of it now a year later! Pricier than many places in town, but still affordable compared to BA and worth it.

Best steak in the world

We shared a lomo (tenderloin) steak and delicious garlic / herb french fries. Great meal and good value. Since we shared, we had enough room for dessert. Delicious flan with a fancy 'sail' made of caramel.
