Since 2006, this out-of-the-way Argentinian has won a strong Battersea following, particularly with its selection of succulent steaks (flown in from Latin America) and “lovely” staff. If you have veggie friends, don’t despair: they do now have the odd vegan option.

“One of best steaks I’ve had in London”, reports a satisfied customer of this “off the beaten track” Argentinian steakhouse with a strong following down Battersea way. There’s also a list of exclusively South American wines.

For 31 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).
