Good steak experience but not too crazy about it. Formal setting & worth a go but not for repeat experience.

Recommended and not disappointed. Very attractive venue with dining in a number of rooms. Portions very large so sharing recommended. The Sirloin and the Ribeye delicious and no room for dessert. The wine list was however pricey

Enjoyed the Restaurant Week lunch offer, which was a bargain at HKD198. The salad bar, while not as extensive as nearby places like Braza and Orange Tree, does include charcuterie, cheeses, and the best roasted vegetables I've eaten almost anywhere. The dessert selection is also not that extensive. No matter - the steak more than makes up for this minor shortcoming. It's perfectly seasoned, and seems to have been marinated in something in a tangy marinade. I stress again that the food at Buenos Aires Polo Club is perfectly seasoned, with the flavour of every single morsel of food there enhanced just right, from the salad bar selections to the steak to the dessert. The decor really does go with the polo club theme.

February is always the best month of the year, it is because my birthday is in February. I have choose different classy and luxurious restaurants to celebrate my day and this year. I have made a reservation for Buenos Aries Polo Club, an Argentinian steak house in Central.

The interior is absolutely modern with the polo club themed decorations, the privileged European vibe is everywhere. I believe my boyfriend and I got the prefect spot, which is the corner of the couch seat, then we can have more space to put our bags.

Surprisingly there aren’t much choices for the food, few dishes for each categories. It seems their weekend semi-buffet brunch is more tempting, so I might go back to try~

To begin with a cold starter, we have ordered my boyfriend’s favorite, Chicken Liver Pâté. The pâté is being served in a small sauce plate, there are crispy chicken skin and caramelized shallots on the top. It is moisture and get a strong hint of organ taste (in a good way), definitely delicious to pair with the sliced baguettes.

As for the hot starter, we have selected Grilled Bone Marrow. Two large bones filled with jelly alike texture of bone marrow and they serve along with oxtail Malbec jam and some sliced baguette also. First, spoon out the bone marrow and place it on the baguette, next put the oxtail Malbec jam on top. The whole dish slightly oily, however the flavor is totally mind-blowing. That little bit of sweet jam surely help to bring the dish to another level, NAILED IT!

While we were eating the starters, the main course 12oz Ribeye has been served to the table. The steak is imported from Argentina and it is the qualitied Black Angus beef. Before enjoying the steak, the server will bring a long a box with various weapons (knifes lol) for you to choose. I have picked an elegant knife with the ivory hand hold and my boyfriend has selected the small dagger for fun haha. The server has helped to slice the beef, they are extremely tender and fluffy. You can savor a bit of brunt taste on the surface since it was grilled, nevertheless that flavor match with the beef taste perfectly.

The steak comes with a side dish and we have tried this Sweet Potato Loaded. The bake sweet potato was covered with shredded cheese, sour cream and diced chorizo. Rich flavors and textures, the sweet vegetable taste can erase your guilty pleasure of the 12oz ribeye.

There is a long table filled with lots of mouth-watering desserts and fruits at the weekend brunch, however the variety of the desserts on a la carte menu is less. I have looked through Instagram for the unique presentation of dessert here and I have found this, Malaviscos. The coffee semifreddo was coated marshmallow and it was served with plenty of the charcoals and orange peels on the side. The server will set it on fire and you can barbecue the marshmallow like a camping activity lol, nonetheless be careful not to over burn the surface. The warm and sticky marshmallow with the bitter coffee icecream is completely delightful, it is a bit sweetness overload but I am sure people can handle that.

Visited with 2 friends and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

One of the main attractions from this restaurant group is the way the decor and ambience. We were warmly greeted and at no point rushed. The restaurant is laid out in small connected areas that allow privacy but still creates a vibrant atmosphere.

The service and food were excellent and we will return with guests from home and other Hong Kong friends
