Argentinean
The home of rustic Argentine cuisine in London. Our concept is simple: to offer reasonably priced quality food in a friendly and informal environment. In Argentina ,along with football, the enjoyment of good food and wine is a national obsession, however, unlike in the UK there is an abundance of quality food at relatively modest prices. Most neighbourhoods (barrios) have their own restaurant for the locals and these barrio restaurants always guarantee quality meats, fresh pastas and the classic selection of desserts.
Now London has its own first barrio restaurant with a complete Argentine menu offering meats or vegetables from the grill, traditional fried empanadas ,hand made fresh pasta, delicious Argentine wine from Mendoza - its famous wine region in the foothills of the Andes as well as a selection of traditional desserts.

We like a good Argentinian style steak with red wine and this restaurant is our local favourite. They also do wonderful grilled cheese and sweetbreads dishes. Haven’t tried the whole menu but there are several vegetarian choices and extensive other meat options. The food quality is excellent; our side salads were very fresh. Friendly and helpful table service.

Simply the juiciest steak you’ll ever eat. Cracking good Argentinian Malbec wine to boot. Well worth a visit.

La Patagonia is always a great and authentic Argentinian Experience. It’s the place where I go to when I feel like eating food from back home. Make sure you try some Empanadas for starters and Flan con dulce de leche for dessert.

This is a restaurant I have wanted to visit for some time, we finally went on a Friday night and the experience was excellent. There were six of us and we had a table near to the open grill area where we could see delicious cuts of meat cooking slowly. The heat from the grill was quite intense but it was a cold night outside so I enjoyed it. The staff were attentive and accommodating, the restaurant was full and had a lively ambiance. Best of all was the food, the meat was probably better than I had anywhere in Argentina and there was plenty of it. The recommended Malbec was a very pleasant wine and went well with it. Six clean plates told the story.

Table for 4 booked for 7.30pm on a Thursday night, we arrived with a +1 and there were no issues with that. Perhaps its the barmy English summer we are having right now, but the restaurant was only half full. We have been here a few times over the years so knew what to expect. We all had steaks (2 sirloins, 1 rump and a couple of T-bones) as well as the sides. Mine was cooked to perfected, a couple in my group were expecting their rare steaks to be a little more bloody. having been here a few times before me know that Argentines like their steaks bloody, so a medium ordered ends up medium-rare and well-done is medium, a rare looks up at you and goes Moo. Perhaps it was a different chef than normal or perhaps the waiter adjusted the cook for us being Europeans. Still the food was excellent and considering the quality I think well priced (£44 per head with half of that on Alcohol, coffees, desserts). Will certainly go back there again and would definitely recommend it.

One of my favourite places to eat in London.
The food has so much flavour. My advice to anyone planning a visit here: make sure you’re hungry as the portions are big. Definitely a place for meat lovers you want to try as much of the menu every time you visit.

I was going to try the chicken for the main course then I read the description of Brocheta De Carne. It sounded so mouth watering and it tasted amazing when it arrived at the table. Cooked medium rare it was perfect with sweet potato fries!

Went with a friend to La Patagonia before going to a concert at Koko - so at a perfect location for that. Staff was friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was nice. Also liked the food except that the beef was overcooked - but was eating it anyway since didn't have time to wait for a new steak.

I made a reservation for a special occasion, but this was not taken into account at all. While another table did receive a candle in their dessert and happy birthday being sung, it didn't happen for us despite making the restaurant aware it was a special occasion.
We also ordered starters which didn't arrive. The main courses came to the table at which point we asked about our starters and we were told the waiter 'didn't hear' us order the starters. We didn't send the mains back as we'd been waiting quite a long time for them.
And to finish, we ordered a glass each of the malbec dessert wine, but were served a glass of their house red. It was a disappointing end to what was supposed to be a very special occasion.

Went for my daughters birthday who is a through and through carnivore and was not disappointed. Excellent steak at good value. A few things had already run out on the menu which was a little disappointed but we were all more than delighted with the meal - including my husband who had the sea bass! Lovely friendly service, nice wine, delicious dessert and a great ambience. Lovely authentic venue, and for a sunday night was really buzzing with local people and a few families. Would definitely recommend, and have been recommending!

Always look forward to coming here, usually a Friday to get some good food in before getting a few pints later. Big fan of the steak sandwich with egg on top.. can't beat it . Churracso also a favourite for lunch which is recommended. Staff always friendly, there's usually a nice atmosphere here

Can only comment on diabolical Customer Service of La Patagonia,as this establishment decided at the 11th hour to cancel our reservation which was booked through Open Table . Our reservation was confirmed by email . We also learned of cancellation by an email from La Patagonia ....without explanation!!!.
Poor poor Customer Service !!!
Thankfully we rang another restaurant who came to our rescue & was amazing. Well done Zafferano. 👏🏻. I guess I will ring Restaurant direct from now on !!.

Went there for a date and arrived on time for our reservation of 9:30. Once we had scanned the menu we asked the waitress for advice on what to choose but she did not seem familiar with many of the dishes offered. When our food arrived we were positively surprised by the generous size of the portions. By the time we finished eating, we were the last customers in the restaurant and staff had already put the chairs on top of the tables, not the best atmosphere for a date so I guess plan to go earlier next time to avoid that.
