It was lovely to get out and the service and experience was great, The food was very good if not a little overpriced but I would definitely recommend it to anyone on a date night.

Good food, good value, good service. Probably even better post-covid - we'll definitely be going back to check it out! Poor disabled access though :(

Great steaks, could do with a larger portion of chips (which were also great).
Cocktails & some soft drinks are expensive.
I missed seeing the 10% optional service charge, listed at the bottom of the bill, which I would have liked to have dropped to 5%

Understaffed. Forgot one of the kids meals so had to let them share one meal while they cooked the forgotten one. We had finished by the time it came. Food took over an hour from order. Shame as have been here before and it’s been amazing

We had a pleasant experience at the restaurant and the service was great and they worked extremely hard to follow covid government guidelines.

The disappointing issue was the food wasn’t as great as expected. (Chips were fab!) the steaks unfortunately were not worth what you charge. The mash potato was very watery.

My partner has cooked fillet on our bbq with more flavour and better texture. 1kg of fillet for £47 from a butchers and you charge £23 for 7oz!

I know you need to make your money again since covid, but I think you are extremely overpriced.

The ambience was non existent but I feel that is due to covid.

It was my first visit to Buenos Aires in Maidstone and it won't be my last. The food was fantastic, the steak was perfectly cooked. It was well set up for social distancing and had hand sanitiser available at a few points in the restaurant. My partner and I took advantage of their 2 for 1 mains offer so it was very reasonable, but I'd be happy to come back and pay full price given the quality of the food. The only slight disappointment was the limited dessert menu (we decided not to have one in the end) but it didn't affect our enjoyment of the meal/evening as a whole.

Service and food was as usual fantastic. My husband and I were celebrating eating our birthdays, just us. We were placed next to a group of about 8-9 lads obviously drinking and were really loud, to the point the waitress apologised. Obviously under the Covid SD circumstances it is what it is but maybe going forward couples could could be seated at the rear of the restaurant- just a suggestion.

But overall it was lovely to be back at one of my favourite restaurants x

Have been a few times before, and haven't had a bad meal yet. Absolutely fantastic food. Not the cheapest meal out, but you get what you pay for, and I wouldn't hesitate to go back again. In my opinion, best restaurant I've been to.

Undercooked steak, asked for medium rare and got rare which is just way too fleshy for me.. was not rested so plate was swimming in blood, £10 service charge? For what? Very very cheeky to add that on a £60 bill. Only 2 steak sauces, mash was so smooth and creamy with the biggest lumps which suggests two batches of mash were mixed together. Such bad value for money, I don’t mind paying a lot for a meal if its actually decent but this was so underwhelming and disappointing, save your money and go to Miller & Carter instead.

The food was amazing! It was truly delicious, steak melted like butter. You get what you pay for so some may view it as 'pricey' but honestly it is worth every penny and would thoroughly recommend!

If you like good steak this is the place to go, the steak is always tender and cooked just how you request it.
My only gripe is that the chips come out of a freezer bag, shame they can't just peel some potatoes and make the chips themselves, real chips always taste better

Was recommended by a friend as a very good steak house. We eat out every Monday evening. The service was ok although with the Covid-19 mitigations in place (screens, face masks, reduced table numbers) it killed any atmosphere. Quality of the food was poor value considering its a speciality restaurant and felt like, other than the steak, had come out of a freezer. Its bigger problem is outside of its control (at 6:30 on a Monday evening) with a high street full of drunks and junkies congregating outside on the benches directly in front of the property.

We’re sorry that the experience wasn’t to your satisfaction. PPE, table spacing and screens are in place to keep customers safe we’ve done our best to prevent them ruining the ambience. The police were informed of the people congregating outside. We strive for quality and the ingredients are fresh and prepared by our chefs prior to service every day. Once again we’re sorry and we hope it will be better if you choose to dine with us again.

The food was fabulous but the overall experience was let down by the service received. When we arrived we were 2 minutes later than our booked time & the member of staff that served us wasn’t even dressed in her work attire, she sat us down with the menu’s went off to get changed & came took our drink order & disappeared for what seemed like ages but served other people drinks that had just arrived. The service didn’t get any better as once our food arrived we had to ask for cutlery & we were not asked once how our food was.

Very poor service for such a expensive meal.

Terrible quality, food wasnt fresh, everything we ordered was terrible, except for one steak even though it was not even half the advertised weight..

Responded on 13 August 2020

Sorry to hear about your experience. Our food is fresh, we produce everything in our kitchen. We have an open kitchen. All meat will shrink in size and weight during cooking, the amount of shrinkage will depend on its fat and moisture content, the temperature at which the meat is cooked, and how long it is cooked. Basically, the higher the cooking temperature, the greater the shrinkage. Sorry that you felt this wasn't the case you can always tell us and we can weight your steak in front of you.
