Serving carbon-neutral steak, fine wines & classic cocktails, our Argentinian steak restaurant in the West End is perfect for weekday lunches, after-work drinks & Sunday roasts.

Drawing inspiration from the artistic spaces of Covent Garden and the captivating tango theatres of Buenos Aires, the restaurant is layered with iconic design statements that reflect the cultural roots of the locality, while the base palette draws influence from our Argentinian origins. 

The ground floor and terrace of the restaurant boasts a bright and welcoming atmosphere, perfect for breakfast, relaxed working lunches, or afternoon drinks. 

Downstairs takes on a darker, more theatrical atmosphere offering a more intimate dining experience, with pleated curtain wall details inspired by the drapery from the West End Theatres.
