Argentinian steakhouse in Newington – as you'd expect, it's steak, steak and more steak with spicy chimichurri sauce.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

At Los Argentinos, it's all about high-quality steak, and lots of it. With cuts ranging from a manageable 225g to a hefty and hearty 400g, no-one leaves here hungry. Gear up for the main event with one of the excellent starters such as the empanadas (pasties filled to the brim with tender diced meat) then succumb to the succulent fillet steak, partnered with their own chimichurri sauce, or one of the traditional béarnaise or mushroom accompaniments. The sides and sauces will, however, simply play second fiddle to the star of the show with options including rump, ribeye, fillet or sirloin. Filling up fast despite a long row of tables, you'll need to book ahead here, especially at the weekend. Desserts are pretty limited with ice-cream offered with various partners such as tequila or chocolate sauce, but after such an epic steak, it's unlikely you’ll crave anything else. Bring a hearty appetite and join the vast number of local diners already in the know about this gem of a steakhouse.
