Returns to original departure point
Explore Buenos Aires' fondness for puertas cerradas (closed-door restaurants) during an evening at this private loft in Palermo Soho. Arrive at an address given to you upon booking to find an unmarked door. Ring the bell, give the name on your reservation, and the staff will buzz you in. Step into a modern loft and be seated with an intimate group of fellow travelers for your asado experience.

Meet your host, Chef Luis, and learn about asado, an important Argentine cultural tradition of eating barbecued meat, sipping wine and socializing with friends. Check out the parrilla, or grill, and hear about the carefully chosen ingredients and dishes from Chef Luis. Ask questions of your host or step onto the loft's deck to sip wine and admire the stunning views of Buenos Aires.

Start your meal with the traditional picada, a meat and cheese platter, before moving on to the salad course. Next, enjoy achudas, another type of grilled appetizer that typically includes chorizo. Cut into your juicy 12-ounce (350-gram) Argentine steak, cooked to your liking, with a side of garlic mashed potatoes. Save room for a decadent dessert. Each course is paired with Argentine wine like Mevi, Familio Blanco, Richardi Fazio Menegazzo and Carinae.

Lovely Evening of Local Food and Wine
Chris_T
, Mar 2020
Had an amazing experience with Luis. We were a small group of 8 people total. Luis and his staff were warm, friendly, and extremely welcoming. We were served 5 courses of food (various meats, cheeses, and an amazing dulce de leche cheesecake) all paired with lovely wines. There was so much food and it was all delicious! Very easy booking and taxi ride from port to the location and back was painless (total round trip taxi price was approximately $7.00 USD). We were not rushed at all and no one left hungry, that's for sure! Would highly recommend for any meat lovers out there!

A Wonderful Culinary Experience

Luis and his team were exceptional. The food was absolutely amazing! The best steaks, we have ever had and grilled to perfection. All other steaks in Argentina paled in comparison. If you are going to Buenos Aires definitely book an evening with Luis. The intimacy of the restaurant makes for a lovely evening with good food, excellent wines and great company. Thank you Luis for an incredible evening!!!

We weren't sure exactly what to expect or if the rather expensive dinner would be worth it, but we had a great time! Steaks by Luis is a private restaurant only open by appointment and Luis served us personally. He warmly greeted the 8 of us strangers turned friends, explained the significance of the courses and wine pairings, then fed us soooo much amazing food while we socialized and enjoyed an asado. You won't lack for a thing!

Dear Missie S, Thank you very much for your recommendation! We also enjoy the good vibes and friendship that is built on our table, it is really a pleasure to share the Asado with people from all over the world and learn new secrets of foreign cities and towns every night. You will always be welcome in our house, there will always be a good reason to celebrate life and share a delicious Asado with Argentine boutique wines! Best regards from all of us, Steaks by Luis Team

Excellent Dinner and Social Event
John E
, Oct 2019
The multi-course dinner, including the food-appropriate wine pairings, was excellent. As was the compatible "family style" dining. After two weeks in BA, I was English-language starved. The dinner included a mix of natives [or transplanted natives] and Americans. Very enjoyable conversation throughout the dinner. Luis did an excellent job making us feel comfortable. Explained the Argentine asado and the various foods we would be eating. And the meal was exquisite. I fully recommend this experience.

Over priced. It was interesting to try new types of food. The wine didn’t live up to our expectations.

I would recommend that everyone do this tour also. The food was well presented and prepared. The different stages of each meal was appetizing and the set up was very close knit so you were able to speak to new people. We had to catch a taxi back to hotel afterwards thats the only thing I didn't like about this as it was finished about 12 midnight and it would have been nice if Viator had someone waiting for us even if we had to pay the extra for it. But in any event the taxi driver who collected us we still talk about him as he almost killed us and he broke every stop light ... and they were quite a few stop lights and he almost ran over people and I am assuming it would normally take 30 mins to get back to our hotel hedid it under 10 mins....I was so scared but I survived it thank God. Other than that we had an awesome time.

This was an excellent evening with outstanding food and wines. Worth every penny and highly recommended. The 5 courses presented Argentinian food for each course paired with an appropriate wine. Hosting was friendly and service excellent. If you only do one outing in Buenos Aires....do this!
