I have got to say that I completely agree with Jeremy Liebster. Went here on Saturday night and it is authentically Buenos Aires. The meat was melt in the mouth tender and exactly as requested, which was medium rare.
Great chips and they were quick to recommend that 1 order of chips was sufficient for even two greedy people, which it was.
With regards to the comments about the smoke, we sat opposite the parrilla and it was fine - that's not to say that you can't smell the meat grilling, but the restaurant certainly isn't smokey.
My one very minor quibble is that I think that the tables for 2 are on the small side. Spectacularly proven by the couples sitting either side of us who managed to knock their oil/vinegar tray onto the floor with a crash.
But this restaurant, for me, is a cracker and I shall certainly return.

Food 9 | Service 10 | Atmosphere 9 | Value for money 10
Completely disagree with the previous reviewer. This restaurant is great, I just wish I lived nearer to it - would be brilliant to have as a local.
Kitchen staff were friendly and responded to our 'hello' and service was good. Food was great - deep fried sand eels, cockles with cider, veal chop and turbot with samphire - all delicious. A bottle of wine from the higher reaches of the list plus coffee and it still came to only £83 for the two of us. I realise that £83 is still a lot of money but regular London diners will know that unfortunately £50 per head for a decent dinner in London is fast becoming the norm.
