If you look for a great piece of meat. Stop looking. This is the place to be. Not cheap but quality cost we all know that. Grilled perfect (red is red) and some easy to go side dishes as well. But you are here for the meat. So big piece and 1 side dish for a great meal.

They do give you a lot of food but the steaks are over priced. I think it is the other food Jacket, salad etc that fills you up and that's not what you are there for!

I've eaten here about 6 times and always visit when I'm in Bonn. The same owner and chef has operated it for years and built up a faithful clientele. The steaks are cooked on an open BBQ type grill. Its not fancy and its not chic but good honest fare. There is a good selection of nice Argentinian malbecs on... More

Cosy restaurant and the staff was abdolutely lovely! The diner was great and the steak was perfect! Not a redtaurant for vegetarians! Only grill on the menu. The prices are okay when you order the specials. If you order the meat a la carte the prices are higher.. But worth it!

THis restaurant is in a very dark location (basement) with two other restaurants on top. The steaks are average, but really expensive. You even have to pay extra for everything you want to have together with you steak (salad....). Parking is nearly impossible.

The restaurant is located very near to the Poppelsdorf Palace. Parking space in front of the restaurant is sparse. I parked on the parking space on the University of Bonn which is behind the restaurant and open to public in the afternoon. The restaurant is situated in the basement which adds some charme to it. It’s like an eating dungeon.... More

We visited El Tarascón following recommendations in Trip Advisor and I must say it was a great success. Service was quick, caring and very friendly. They offer a great variety of Argentinean meat and the execution is simply perfect. You can also taste wines from Argentina at a reasonable price. Desserts are not really innovative but are okay. I can... More

El Tarascon definitely serves the best steaks in town - no frills, simply great quality meals. Side dishes are OK. Service has always been splendid (each of three tries). However, note that there is no (really no) mobile phone network coverage inside the restaurant - which can be - but not necessarily is - good ;-)
