It's all about traditional Argentine cuisine and culture at this Camden Town restaurant and bar. Much of the food comes hot from the parrilla charcoal grill and all of the wine is sourced from Mendoza, in the western Argentinean foothills of the Andes. And if you want even more Argentine bang for your buck? There's tango each month - music and dance.
Meat plays a lead role on the food menu. Dishes range from grilled sweetbreads, empanadas and morcilla (an Argentine black pudding) to loin of lamb served with a mint and coriander chimichurri, chicken escalope and brocheta de carne - a skewer of beef fillet with bacon, Spanish sausage and grilled vegetables.
Steaks, unsurprisingly, are a particular strong point, with cuts such as lomo, sirloin, rib-eye and asado de tira - beef ribs cut across the ribcage - cooked on that charcoal grill. It's not all meat, though. Vegetarian options come courtesy of spinach and ricotta ravioli, Argentine salads and calabaza con humita - a dish of stuffed butternut squash with a corn and béchamel sauce filling.
Imported beers from Quilmes and Bolú Porteño feature alongside a wine list rich in quality reds - the selection of malbecs is especially extensive. Keep an eye out for additions from the province of Neuquén - a burgeoning wine region at the northern end of Patagonia.
Argentine style restaurant with a complete menu offering meat and vegetables from the grill ('parrilla'), hand made fresh pasta, delicious wine from Mendoza (the famous wine region in the foothills of the Andes) and a selection of traditional Argentine desserts.
Also, you can enjoy live tango shows; find the next Argentine show on our website on the 'what's on' page.

The food here was absolutely amazing! The prices were good value and it was a good dinner date place with the hubby. Will definitely go here again.
Really unique and lovely restaraunt. The lunch offer is such a bargain. Had the Churrasco steak and mash for £7.95 and it was delicious. Hoping to go back for dinner soon.
Went there for lunch with a couple of friends; great atmosphere, lovely engaged staff and best of all really good quality tasty food for an incredible price (check out their lunch time menu!) Will definitely be going back and recommending to friends.
I didn't think it was possible to get such an amazing steak for these kind of prices in London. I went last night for a Wednesday Tango night with my Dad, who is from Argentina. We got to listen to a tango guitar duet whilst eating near to perfect steak and vegetables done on the parilla. It was a lovely night and I plan to go back soon.
A great little restaurant which is very convenient if you need an early evening meal before heading over to the Koko. We had the Parrillada Pampa special, which was more than enough for two.
After much persuading managed to book a table for dinner at the very last minute. When we arrived though, we were left standing at the entrance for quite a while, even though we can see an empty table, before anyone came to serve us, so not very welcoming, but once seated, very friendly service. We had the Parrillada Pampa for 2, so two of each (beef ribs, beef skirt, chorizo, blood sausage and pork neck end), which was served on a hotplate, and a selection of oven baked vegetables. The food is excellent but a bit pricey as the portions are small (especially the vegetables) and the parrillada pampa meats are not the best meat cuts. However, the cheapest bottle of wine, the Malbec at £15, was actually quite good. The lunch looks a cheaper option, so will go back and try that. Restaurant is small and cosy.
