El Mirasol: "Great steak in a swank restaurant" El Mirasol Tip by midnight_mike

El Mirasol, Buenos Aires: 3 reviews and 0 photos

I heard about this steakhouse/parrilla from Frommer's. If you want to know why Argentina is so famous for its beef, come here with an empty stomach and indulge. Many business people come here, so you might have to make reservations. If not, you can wait at the bar for a table. You should also wear your best clothes, as almost everyone there is dressed up. Steaks do not come with anything, so if you want a baked potato or something else you will have to order it separately. El Mirasol has a very good wine selection as well. The wait staff is friendly and very helpful.

Like most things in Argentina, the prices are amazingly low for Americans and Western Europeans. A bottle of wine, a 12-ounce steak, a 24-ounce steak and two baked potatos cost $40!
