The menu at Porteño comes to you straight from the kitchens of Argentina via the imaginations and culinary artistry of chefs and owners, Ben Milgate and Elvis Abrahanowicz.

We specialise in authentic Argentine barbeque - the best meats in town are prepared front and centre for all to see on a traditional Parilla (barbecue) and Asado (pit of fire).

Don't forget to order the brussel sprouts!

"Highlights are the slow roasted suckling pig, morcilla and the homemade pate."
"As are the amazing fried brussels sprouts."
"The South American style Pavlova is a winner!"

Degustation for groups of 5 or more was very good. 5 or 6 great dishes including a massive amount of lamb and pork. Cost about $80. Wine selection is extensive and expect to spend $45 on a decent ish bottle. Probably 5 stars in any other city but with so much competition in Sydney, there are better places. This is a very good 4 stars though.

Thanks food was great; spit roast pork was succulent and tender with strips of crackling. Sides were all excellent, fresh, tasty and delicious. The pricing was a little high for what you get, but that comes with the territory.

Recently went to Porteno with 3 friends, couldn't book (min 5 people) so we took a punt and arrived a little before 8pm. Staff were very friendly and open about the wait (over an hour) so we worked our way from the bar, to a 'drinking' table before we got down stairs for our meal. Had the Chef's selection with drinks which was a good start. For mains we had the Wagyu, Sirloin & Chicken, all was amazingly cooked, tender, flavoursome. Sides were equally good. It's not a cheap night, nor a short one. I went away satisfied but not sure the price was representative of the amount of food, still I'd recommend it if you are looking for a fancy night out.

Loved the sucking pig (really hard not to overcook) and the steak. Argentinian chefs should learn how not to overcook their meats here. Trully awesome. The starters were also pretty solid.

Really disappointing for the money. Most of the food felt oily and sub standard. Porteno seems to be surviving on its name alone.

Service was top class! Really enjoyed the food as well, in particular the wagyu main.
