Harden's survey result
It still seems “very popular”, but Juan Santa Cruz’s “very bling-y” Argentinian hangout on the edge of Notting Hill saw ratings plummet this year. “Starters were great, but main courses slightly disappointing” is about as good as it gets. Others reckon it’s “the worst value for money” – “snotty, overpriced, Euroflash with dreadful service”.
“Gaucho-size portions” of “top-quality beef” (“there’s even a kilo steak on the menu”) and “extremely stylish decor” make Juan Santa Cruz’s lavish Argentinian pub conversion on the edge of Notting Hill “a brilliant night out”… “if you can get a table”. But even fans concede it is “extremely expensive” – “at £36 for a main course this is a place to go when someone else is paying”.
This lavish pub conversion with a copper bar and “shiny gold mirrors” on the edge of Notting Hill was opened last year by Argentinian restaurateur Juan Santa Cruz. While reporters generally favour its performance including the Argentinian-inspired European food, even fans can find it “overpriced”.
A luxurious new addition to the borders of Notting Hill and Holland Park, from South American restaurateur Juan Santa Cruz, set over two floors, and complete with first-floor roof terrace; early days press reports have focused more on the steep pricing than the Argentinian-inspired European food.
