“Expensive but fun” is the upbeat take on this Argentinian steakhouse chain, where imported steaks are matched with an “excellent wine list” (including the largest selection of Argentinian wines outside the country). And the riverside branch in Richmond is a particular “go-to place for a celebration”. On the downside, a worrying proportion of diners find it “overpriced” or plain “disappointing”: “it’s a good steak, but doesn’t match the price tag”.

CEO Martin Williams (who has returned to the business in recent years) still has his work cut out to return this Argentinian steakhouse chain to its former glory. Fans say it’s particularly “a winner on business”, hailing “top steaks” and the extensive selection of South American wines to complement them. That it’s “pricier than competing (better) steak experiences” is a repeat complaint, though, and there are still those who feel the approach smacks of “churn and burn for covers”. Top Tips: “beautiful premises on the Thames at Richmond” and a “pretty garden” in NW3.

Emerging from a financial rescue package (that has seen the owner of M Restaurants, and former Gaucho CEO, Martin Williams, return to the helm), this moodily decorated Argentinian steakhouse chain still somewhat divides reporters. Prime Latino cuts feature alongside a “well-curated” South American wine list, and even despite its difficulties, detractors don’t say the food is dire, merely that the experience can appear “dull” given the “eye-watering bills”. Better reports overall, though, do suggest some return to form, with a greater proportion of diners once again inclined to find it “good fun” and “expensive for a reason”. Top Tip – look out for their bottomless ‘beef & bottle’ deals.

For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
