Sibling to Highbury steakhouse Garufa, this ‘Argentine kitchen’ offers a broader menu of regional specialities – although you’ll still find exceptional pampas-reared steaks (our lomo was meltingly tender) and favourites such as rich, soft-textured black pudding croquettes or punchy grilled provoleta cheese. There’s also plenty more to explore, from empanadas patagonica stuffed with scallops, tomato and olives to locro – a satisfying stew of pulled pork, beef, chorizo and pumpkin. Otherwise, melting costilla (braised short rib) and the dulce de leche dessert are worth a visit in their own right. A thoughtful wine list includes some surprises, such as a fruity Saurus Malbec from Patagonia – ask for a sample from the Enomatic. Knowledgeable staff offer a warm welcome, whether you’re in the ground-level wine bar or the larger candlelit basement restaurant. Breakfast and brunch, plus great-value set lunches add further appeal.
