Buenos Aires Cafe, Blackheath

We've always been suspicious of the places at the top of Blackheath Village, which over the years, has attracted some pretty rubbishy restaurants. So that's why we hadn't tried Buenos Aires Cafe before, despite the fact it's been there for years, collecting decent reviews. That, and we don't get out much. And we're married to a vegetarian.

The steaks are delicious - we had a 400g rib-eye and got to try a couple of other cuts from the plates, courtesy of friends who were defeated by the meat. The wine they recommended made us immediately regret our decision to drive. Upstairs is bright and intimate and we weren't under pressure to leave, even though we stayed until the very end. And for an Argentine steak specialist, the menu made a surprising number of concessions to vegetarians.
