Steak in Buenos Aires and seafood in Santiago


Ask our Experts

Can you recommend the best place to eat steak in Buenos Aires and the best seafood restaurant in Santiago?

Asked by Aaron



A must for me is La Cabrera in trendy Palermo – the ribeye steak just melts in your mouth. 647 Dinner Club in the tango neighbourhood of San Telmo is also superb and seriously refined; it’s a bit on the pricey side (for Argentina) but you’ll love it.

For seafood in Santiago you must head to the Central Market in the centre at lunchtime where there are a number of restaurants serving up sizzling steaks of freshly-caught salmon. And if you have time you really should try La Mar – it's owned by the famous Peruvian chef Gastón Acurio and the food is outstanding. This restaurant is always buzzing so get there early as you can’t reserve a table in advance.
