Best Argentinian in Melbourne! Everything was delicious. The two starters (Provoleta & Fried broccoli), 3 entree's (Chorizo, Mejilla de Cerdo & Tira de asado) and a side (Tomate). We were so full, we had to skip dessert! Definitely worth going back to try the rest of the menu.
Hola David, Thank you so much for your lovely review, we are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your dinner with us. You must come back again soon and try our steak, it's the best in Melbourne! Have a great day, The team at San Telmo

Visited for my boyfriend's 25th birthday. One of the best restaurant meals we have had in a very long time. Beautiful authentic Argentine empanadas, lamb steak cooked and seasoned to perfection and an amazing accompaniment of cauliflower with manchego cream. Worth the money

I found the overall experience great but felt that there was overkill on the salt on some food. Spoilt the underlining flavours

Loved the atmosphere. Definitely get the corn and cheese empanadas. Steak was beautifully cooked. The hazelnut carrots with goats cheese are a beautiful accompaniment!

I was travelling to Melbourne for the day from Sydney, and a colleague recommended I try this place as he knows I enjoy good food, so good, everything cooked to perfection! Chicken was so juicy and the steak a perfect medium rare, sides were great especially the fried broccoli. Couldn't fault this place,food, wine, service and all very reasonably priced, will be dining here again on my next Melbourne trip.

Food was tasty! Highlight for me was the corn empanada. Steaks cooked to perfection. Mocktails were refreshing. Service was also very good.

About San Telmo

Sensory pleasure at San Telmo... Named after the Parker brothers’ (the owners) favourite neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, San Telmo is a rustic, bohemian eatery that’s filled with antiques and unique one off finds that the three gringos (Parker brothers) collected on their travels around BA. The all day restaurant and bar offers plenty of sensory pleasures, from sight to smell, and of course, taste, it pleases all three. Soft leather detailing like the leather placemats (feel free to touch - stroke - whatever) and fat timber slab tables give this place a real edge. But one that’s warm and inviting, not harsh and cold. With tasty Argentinian dishes such as the taut-skinned chorizo and the ''tira de asado'' (beef short ribs) taste buds will be equally impressed as your eyes. Wash your grub down with the all-Argy wine list that and you’ll be one happy diner. Best dish: taut-skinned chorizo
