What You Can Expect

Closed-Door Restaurant in Buenos Aires: Dining Experience at Steaks by Luis

Private Closed-Door Dining Experience

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.

  • Picada: salami, bread and cheese
  • Mixed salad
  • Achuras: sweetbreads, cheese, pork flank steak, blood sausage and chorizo
  • Steak and garlic mashed potatoes
  • Dessert (varies daily)

Great dinner at Steaks by Luis, make sure you bring cash for a tip - though they'll accept card for the tip. The food was amazing and we enjoyed the experience. There were 8 people total the night we were there and enough food for 12-14 people, so come very hungry.

Don't be fooled by the nondescript exterior - just ring the doorbell and enter a wonderful experience. The staff were wonderful hosts whom immediately made us feel at home and encouraged mingling etc. And the food - honestly the best meal we have had in any travels and we travel 3-4 times a year world-wide! Go, and enjoy - but go hungry as it is a lot of food!

The food, wines, ambiance, staff and fellow diners were all top notch. This was one of the best things we've done in Bs As. The food was beyond plentiful and beyond fabulous. The wines, too. The staff and Chef Luis were very friendly and so knowledgable about the meats, wine pairings and dining customs here. No one left hungry. The steaks were enormous and delicious. We recommend this be on everyone's list.

Great food, fantastic matched wines. Staff were relaxed and friendly and made sure as the only English speaker I was looked after. This experience is a great way to meet fellow travellers. The night I was there solo, there were 2 couples and a man with his son, so a mixed bag which is great. The evening is presented a a typical family aside would be in an Argentine home. Will go again when next in BA!

I know Argentina is known for beef and BBQ but this was over the top! Chef Luis and his team put on an extravaganza. The food and wine pairings were wonderful and I can not explain how wonderful the meat was - could cut the steaks with a butter knife. We were able to purchase delicious wine for a good price and little shipping. I would recommend this event to anyone who likes beef and wine! Also it was my birthday and they sang to me and brought out champagne!!!
