Buenos Aires Café is an authentic, family-friendly Argentinian restaurant in Blackheath, southeast London. 

Inspired by the restaurants of our native Buenos Aires, we serve steaks and grills, pizzas and pasta dishes and classic desserts based on old family recipes. We also have one of London's few (and, we like to think, best) Argentine-only wine lists – with a unique array of Malbecs and other delicious reds along with some superb whites and proseccos: all of them perfect with a juicy ribeye or fillet steak, one of our legendary mixed grills or unique spatchcocked chickens. Our beef is sourced from the Pampas itself and almost everything else on the menu is homemade by our chefs, including our very popular chorizo!

Come and see us soon – we look forward to serving you!

Our restaurant is in Blackheath Village, close to the station and all the shops and with views of the green expanse of the heath itself. Somehow it doesn’t feel like London; in fact we like to think it’s as relaxed and welcoming as our favourite neighbourhood restaurants back home. The Village is always busy and on warm days you can sit outside and watch the world go by. But whenever you come, come hungry!

Customers with limited mobility should be aware that the the toilets are situated down a flight of stairs in the basement,

Open Tues–Fri noon–2.45pm & 5.30pm–10pm, Sat & Sun noon–4pm & 5.30pm–10pm. *

* Parties of 6 or more will be seated in the downstairs section of the restaurant.

You may have guessed it from our name, but our inspiration is Buenos Aires, and the classic confiterias that we knew when we were growing up and fabulous parillas where the meat was succulent and wine flowed freely. We wanted to create somewhere you could hang out and relax with family and friends, where you could eat good quality, affordable food, and above all where you could find great steaks, pizza and pasta – just like the best places in Buenos Aires.

Our food is made with passion – and of course genuine Argentinian beef. We think the closer to home food is made or sourced the better, but we also reckon that Argentinian beef is the best in the world by some way. Argentinian cows feed on the sweet grass of the Pampas, which produces meat that is flavoursome, succulent and low in cholesterol.

Argentina is an oddball among South American countries, populated by immigrants from Spain and Italy, and with a cuisine that derives partly from its Mediterranean influences, jumbled together in a uniquely Argie mix. We don’t only serve steak, but great pizzas and pasta dishes too, along with chorizo and empanadas made in the kitchen by our chefs to our own recipes. We reckon they taste better that way.We only use Argentinian beef, and many say that this is the best in the world. There are several reasons for this. It’s sourced from the finest Herefordshire and Angus cattle, which were introduced in the early nineteenth century by the British.

Our wine list is perhaps uniquely made up only of wines from Argentina, which produces more wine than any other country in South America and is the fifth largest wine producer in the world, Despite that, the quality is high, and the diversity – as you might expect in a large a country with such a varied climate – unrivalled. Join us for one of our regular wine-tastings.


We run regular wine-tastings throughout the year. Our latest is running on Tuesday 14 March, and starts at 6.30pm. Tickets cost £42.50 but spaces are limited - please book ahead to be sure of getting a place. Call 0208 318 5333 or email


We cater for all kinds of functions, from private parties to corporate events. We do both smart and informal, and we can tailor our menus around you. We can offer a range of options to suit each occasion, from an informal buffet to a full-on Argentinian barbecue (our favourite!). But we love to cook, so if you want something that’s not on the menu, just ask.
