* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

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”.

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“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”.

For 30 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).
