Thank you to Belen and her team for a great evening. The whole experience is great, from the food to the organisation and the location. Her team are incredibly knowledgeable, whether you know about Asado’s or not you will leave having learnt something! It’s hosted in a beautiful family home which is easy to get to from Palermo, we had a group of 9 which created for an entertaining evening. The atmosphere is perfect, you feel very welcome as soon as you arrive and the girls are attentive to your needs. Belen makes you feel at home in Argentina even after the course offering their advice, recommendations etc.
Highly recommend this experience!

We had so much fun and left very full! We loved this experience. Not only were the hosts very friendly the food was wonderful. Plus, the wine was great and we loved learning about various cuts of meat and how to cook them.

Amazing Afternoon! 😃😃

It was a wonderful day and we got to share an Argentinian Asado. What Belén achieved with The Asado Experience embodies everything we love about this ritual in Argentina. It's a journey about sharing, enjoying, laughing, and chatting. We learned that an Asado is not just about eating, but in fact , it’s much more than that. It’s about patience, enjoying the process and gathering together. I loved meeting new people and discussing topics. It seems to me a much more interesting and fun way to get to know the culture of a country.
Experiencing firsthand what a true Asado entails is incredibly valuable, far beyond merely dining at a restaurant, sitting down at a restaurant, and leaving.

The attention was excellent, with staff being extremely attentive and responsive to all our needs, making our experience truly enjoyable. ❤️😃

I have grilled and smoked food my entire life, American style. The Asado Experience is absolutely amazing. I learned so much from the ladies that I will add to my skill set. They were so welcoming and so helpful. The food was incredible. The most important thing the ladies taught us was that an Asado is about the experience of connecting with others. We had people from Europe, Venezuela and various states from the USA end spending time with complete strangers who by the end of the experience were friends was the biggest take away from the experience. We will definitely be back on the next trip to Buenos Aires. Thank you Olivia, Lola and Berni for such a great experience. 😊

From the moment we stepped through the gate and we were greeted by Clara and Fransisca we felt like we were old friends getting together for an asado. Such a wonderful, warm atmosphere in a beautiful setting. Fransisca explained everything so well and really showed us the true experience. The food was delicious. Thank you for sharing your home with us Belen!

Attending the Asado Experience hosted by Lola, Clari, and Belen was an absolute delight from start to finish. What struck me most about the evening was the warm and inclusive atmosphere they cultivated. From the moment I walked in, I felt like I was stepping into a friend's backyard for a summer barbecue. The ambiance was relaxed and inviting, with string lights twinkling overhead and the sound of laughter filling the air. It was evident that there was a lot of thought and care in creating a space where guests could truly feel at home. One of the things that made the experience so special was the opportunity to connect with people from all walks of life. Whether they were seasoned travelers or locals, everyone seemed to share a common bond – a love for good food and meaningful conversation. It was inspiring to see strangers come together and form genuine connections over shared experiences and stories.

Throughout the evening, the hostesses went above and beyond to ensure that everyone felt welcome and included. They took the time to chat with each guest, sharing stories about their journey and their passion for bringing people together through food. While the food itself was undeniably delicious – with each bite a testament to the skill and expertise of the "asadoras"– it was the sense of community and camaraderie that truly made the Asado Experience unforgettable.

This is an experience that enables you to connect with Argentinian culture through the beauty and the passion of their unique cuisine -- asado. Come with curiosity and questions and you will be richly rewarded with knowledge and understanding of how and why asado is so important in Argentina. And, of course, the best part is that you get to enjoy a unique dining experience that you help bring to the table. The beauty of the food is the simplicity of its components and presentation. Nonetheless, the flavors and textures are in beautiful harmony with each other, the dining environment, and the delicious wines served with the meal. This is not a "sterile" restaurant experience where food is brought to your table. Be prepared to engage and participate with the chef and other participants so that your enjoyment is maximized. This is a beautiful area of the city. It is a beautiful home. And the setting for dining is welcoming and open. I only had one day in Buenos Aires and I chose to do this. I'm so glad that I did!

I'm still savoring the entire asado experience, it was absolutely incredible. When I arrived, Lola and Clari welcomed me in the warmest and most loving way that made introducing myself to them feel super natural, as if I were making new friends. Before starting the magic we had a moment to talk a little more about ourselves to get to know each other. I was in a group in which I did not know any other guests and it was a great moment to break the ice, and from the first moment the laughter wasn’t lacking in these conversations. Then they slowly introduced us to what asado means in Argentina, and it was amazing to hear about where Argentine traditions come from, and to learn how each little element has a reason for being and its own story behind it, which is what in the end fills the complete “ritual” of the asado with spirit. In the middle of that great talk they offered us an excellent quality wine to accompany the moment.
I had a very positive shock when the girls told us that The asado experience is a company made by women in which only women work. I found the legend of Belén, the founder, particularly inspiring, and I loved seeing such a good relationship between work colleagues. This experience includes, in addition to stories, the possibility of learning how to prepare an authentic Argentine asado, Lola and Clari showed us the different cuts of meat, they explained to us where their names come from, we were able to get to work and season the meats as well as prepare our first chimichurri, they also taught us what vegetables accompany the meats and how to prepare them, where they are placed on the grill and for how long. I don't think I've ever been so excited to try something in my life, I can't lie to you, that asado looked from another planet! And I can't even explain how good it smelled. The most expected moment arrived and we delighted in the pieces prepared by the griller or asadora Lola, one would assume who is in charge of such a task as grilling meat would be a man, but the asado experience team showed us that a woman can excel in this art in a way very precise.
I want to highlight that during the experience everything flowed naturally, they really gave us a 100% authentic moment, I felt like I was part of a family that got together with the simple purpose of enjoying an asado and sharing what's new in our lives.
I left very happy, everything absolutely exceeded my expectations, I would return without thinking twice! If you have the chance to go, take it, thank me later!

The Asado Experience completely exceeded my expectations (which were already pretty high after reading all the amazing reviews). The food, the place, the people… the girls there managed to creat an ambience in which I felt incredibly at ease with people I just met. There is something so magical about the whole thing: it is a culturally rich, immersive experience that I 100% recommend to anyone visiting Buenos Aires.

I had the pleasure to assist to the Asado Experience in my time in Buenos Aires and it was one of the highlights of my trip! From the moment I was invited into the house I felt so comfortable. Belen has a beautiful house and garden. I learned so many new things about Argentinian culture and cooking tips. The meat was delicious and cooked with care. Clari and Lola were super nice hosts who kept offering their help with any doubts about the country, which was really thoughtful. The time spent together, chatting and eating as if we all knew each other for a long time made the evening so special that I wanted to stay longer!! I know that if I am ever back in Buenos Aires this would be one of the first places I would return to. So if you want to experience a real connection with people not only from Argentina but other places, tasting different cuts of premium Argentinian meat, you will not be disappointed!!
