Cabaña Las Lilas

Of the dozens of fine steak houses that line the picturesque docks of Puerto Madero, Las Lilas is arguably the best (and certainly the most famous: Jenna Bush reportedly dined here in 2007). Here, the Argentine beef experience—essential to any Buenos Aires vacation—includes the highest-grade local chorizo, ojo de bife (rib eye), and lomo (tenderloin), along with superior service (don’t even try to count the number of waiters that attend you) and a wine list so extensive it reads more like a novel than a menu. Beef eaters appreciate that the meats come from the restaurant’s own herd of pasture-raised cattle, but even vegetarians delight in exquisite salads and sides like garlicky Provençal mushrooms and summer-fresh caprese salad. Las Lilas is no bargain, especially by Buenos Aires standards, but it’s indubitably worth the splurge.
