It's a carnivorous carnival at this Argentinian steak house, with every cut of beef you can imagine in the heart of student-central Newington.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Steaks are the star attraction at Los Argentinos, so when you’re in the mood for a well-cooked hunk of beef this Newington grill should be near the top of your list. All the favourite cuts are available – sirloin T-bone, ribeye, fillet and rump – at varying weights, cooked to your liking and pleasingly charred. If you like things a bit saucy there are several to choose from, including homemade chimichurri. For lighter options, check out the grilled chicken or salmon. Starters are worth a look too: the meat falls from the bones of the barbeque ribs and mince stuffed into a red pepper is spectacularly seasoned. Desserts are more standard, including cheesecake and apple pie to round things off. Their wine list is full of great options for matching with your meal, with several bottles being highlighted as great companions for the meaty menu, and all in it's really good value.
