May want to upgrade meat, you order, compared to Ruth's Chris, this one is cheaper and is local flavor, they get some business from Waldorf next door, no view, one block from Ave. Balboa, take Uber and return same way.

Located behind the Hilton Hotel, it is not in a main thoroughfare so it take some effort to find (unless you are staying at the Waldorf Astoria).

The restaurant specializes in Argentinian cooking, which is mainly meat. The menu offers several cuts of beef and we had several at our table. Every one of them was good and cooked to perfection. Seasoned well, good portions and reasonable prices make this place a very convenient steakhouse in the area.

The restaurant was quiet and spacious, and not too crowded, so it was perfect for a peaceful dinner among friends.

Actually found this place by mistake while looking for another restaurant. Glad I found this place. The bread in this place is amazing. Almost melts in your mouth!! Don't know about the other steaks, but my twin filet mignons were a steal for a mere $17!!! Asked for them medium (pink) and they came out a bit red for my liking. Other than that, great meal at a great price!!!

The food was very good. The service was a little slow and with me being American with no Spanish speaking ability, it was sometimes difficult to get the waiter to understand what i wanted.

We visited here on our first night of a 17 day visit to mainly central America. We stayed at the lovely Waldorf hotel which is 30 feet away and having arrived late did not want to wander far. La Pampa met our needs for distance and quality very well.

I had a steak with a wonderful jalepeno sauce with just the right amount of kick to say hot.

We were served very well and although not all staff spoke English there were only smiles and assistance.

The only downside for me was TV screens on one wall covering the sports bar option. That background "noise" distracted from good quality food. I suppose they need to compete with the (lower level) sports bar 100 yards away.

For the food I would go back without hesitation.
