    Had no idea what I was in for when some colleagues booked this place for dinner (they were obviously in the know). We turned up about 9pm on a Sunday and I thought it would be quite but it the joint was packed! The open kitchen mesmerises you straight away with the flame grill and hunks of meat being prepped by the staff. Once seated we were greeted by our lovely waitress who went through all the specials and the recommendations. For myself I got the beef empanadas for a starter and they were the best empandas I've had in Australia. They came piping hot, the pastry perfect and a fragrant beef filling.

    Food is delicious, ambience really nice, we had the three-course set and it was all really good. Creme caramel dessert was really yummy! The Malbec was just delicious too - they have a great drinks list. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

    It was the first night restaurants opened for diners since the isolation restrictions and San Telmo with its team of amazing staff did not disappoint! It was my birthday so double the reason to celebrate (thank you for the dessert & candles!). The food, wines and service was A1 while I highly recommend the Pisco Sour cocktail to kick things off. We will be back as such a terrific night had even with the new eating out rules, there was a good vibe in the room.

    This is quite simply one of the best restuarants in Melbourne. The steaks are always cooked to perfection, the sides are amazing and the wine list is extensive and spectacular. Desserts are also great.

    I have been to San Telmo on three occasions. Each time the service and food has been marvellous. Be prepared to wait for a large strip-sirloin steak, but it’s well worth the wait. The experience is enhanced by the fact that the dishes are created to be shared. There will be plenty of speaking between each course, but complete silence when the mains arrive!!

    We celebrated my wife’s birthday at San Telmo. The reservation asked me to pre order most of our food, (except drinks), and the full payment in advance, this was actually pretty handy in hindsight. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by staff, the open kitchen and the Great Wall of wine makes a great first impression, our table was THOROUGHLY disinfected as per the current health measures in place. The food was excellent... We had the second banquet, ($90 pp), The black sausage was a stand out for me along with the fried broccoli. But they both came runners up to the dry aged ribeye we were served up for our main! Overall we had a great experience helped along by a bottle of Malbec which tied everything together nicely. I have to say that the staff went out of their way to ensure that our night was just fun and we left there feeling happy and full. An interesting dining experience I would recommend to anyone looking for something more than casual, but not fine dining, but still very high quality and comfortable surroundings.

    If you want steak that melts in your mouth like butter, this is the place for you. The pisco sours are also great. Service is 10/10 as well.

    We love San Telmo, it has a vibrant atmosphere, friendly and knowledgable staff who are always smiling and helpful. The food is amazing, the ceviche and empanadas are fantastic but the steaks are the heroes and sooo delicious. I highly recommended this restaurant.

  • 5Bridgete L. 8 months ago
    WHAT AN EXPERIENCE! If the take home box was this good, I can only imagine what the food and atmosphere would be like. We got the Para Dos box. This was a good introduction for the kids to a try a new flavour palette. The empanadas were a hit and the lamb was delicious! Really happy with the whole box. Thank you!

  • 5Margie J. 1 year ago
    So delicious! Loved having dinner here last night, my friend and I shared the lime snapper ceviche, the burnt carrots and the rump steak. Everything was well seasoned and cooked perfectly. Definitely will be back for more. It was quite busy for a Tuesday night, so highly recommend you book in advance.

  • 5Mary H. 1 year ago
    One of our favourite restaurants in Melbourne!! The steak is fantastic and honestly the atmosphere is really what sets it apart. There is a fantastic wine list which also helps. Sure it is pretty pricey, but in my opinion so worth it! Staff have been so lovely, and even accommodating when we have had a show at the theatre. For sure we will be back!

    Genuine Argentinean feel from when you walk in through the door, the decor takes you back to Buenos Aires through to your first bite of the juicy, simply cooked beef. Highly recommend the broccoli entree, provoleta, braised beef empanadas and tire de asado. You have to wash it down with a fernet and coke if you want to go full Argentinean.We have dined in at Asado, Palermo and San Telmo and each have lived up to our expectations.

    It was a lovely night. Dinner was a so beautiful. Food was delicious, and the waiters/ waitress was attentive. Had so much wagyu beef we couldn’t finish it all. Brilliant night. Will definitely come back again.

    Love the atmosphere and the food. Only complaint was that they didn't let me sit where I wanted to despite a lot of available space. They said blamed corona restrictions for it, but it didn't make any sense to me to be honest.

    You gotta love meat!!!!

  • 4Robert D. 1 year ago
    An interesting place to try, cool decor and nice staff. All the food we ate was exceptional, on caution is that the dishes mentioned in the 'Smaller category are quite small (as opposed to some places where entries are a meal for lighter eaters). The meat was perfect and cooked to perfection. The meals took a while to come so don't think you can nip in quickly before a show! Not a cheap place but an interesting place to try.

  • 4Steve S. 1 year ago
    The steak, wine and empanadas we ordered were made as great as I expected. I tried few Argentinian places before and I can say this place is one of the nicest one I gave been to.

  • 4Patricia M. 10 months ago
    Friendly & helpful staff. We chose the $70 p/h set menu option and were not dissapointed. The food was delicious & enough, no waste & left us feeling comfortable satisfied.

    (Translated by Google) The steak is too dry and hard. It may be grilled on charcoal fire. The surface is dark and hard. The meat inside is ok, but the heart is very tired. (Original) 牛排偏乾硬,可能是用炭火烤的緣故,表層都黑到乾硬,裡面肉是還可以,只是嚼到心很累

    Have emailed San Telmos email but no form of reply. I wasn't going to speak up but felt sick leaving restaurant yesterday and today my partner is really ill. Staff was lovely until we had to wait an hour and a half in the back of the restaurant with NO further contact from anybody for 1 piece of chicken and 1 piece of lamb! It would have been nice to have been told by the waiters that nothing else comes with the dish and to offer to order a side, or simply just explain the menu that has barely any items listed! Upon arrival of the food, I understand lamb to be cooked rare but the chicken was RAW, completely RAW. After waiting an hour and a half I definitely do not expect to be served raw chicken. . Definitely was not worth the money paid ($100 for chicken and lamb) and won't returning. Left disgusted, unsatisfied and HUNGRY.
