Following the Argentine ethos that eating, drinking and most importantly life are there to be enjoyed with friends, family and lovers. From midday to late at night we offer a shared menu bringing people together just like a family Asado in Argentina. In our endeavour to capture the essence of Argentine culture and cuisine, we have imported a bespoke 2.5 metre parrilla charcoal grill, hand made by Pirincho, a lifelong master of the craft. He is regarded as one of the most important parrilla craftsman in the world. Pirincho’s previous customers include former Argentine presidents, the Ferrari workshop in Modena, and the VIP restaurant in the Barcelona FC Stadium.

The carpaccio was served with an avocado purée with a salsa and chimichurri sauce on the side. The meat was superb - even creamy.

My wife and a friend have just had another fabulous meal at San Telmo. The steaks are to die for! Fabulous service and an excellent drinks and food menu. The place to go for Argentinian food. Highly recommended.

A group of us visited this fantastic resaurant and we were all so impressed with the food that we had. We chose to have a sharing style menu and it was a great idea as we were able to sample many delicious dishes. The 'empanadas', an Argentinian pastry filled with corn, onion and mozzarella were a taste explosion!! The vegetables... fried broccoli, polenta chips and burnt carrots were amazing. I am not a vegetable lover and even I wanted more!! We shared the hanger steak, served medium, and it was seasoned and cooked to perfection. The desserts of creme caramel and chocolate tart were really great and the 'panqueques', ginger spiced crepes, were superb. The restaurant is tucked away but well worth finding. You do need to book as they are always very full.
