Welcome to seasonal, sustainable and innovative Argentinian cuisine.

El Sizzling Lomito started out with a humble food cart and has grown into one of New Zealand’s most successful Argentinian restaurants.

The restaurant specialises in grilled steak sandwiches, barbecued meats and traditional Argentine dishes. Your steak is cooked on open flames, giving it a rich smoky flavour for a mouth-watering dish. Other menu favourites include T-bone steak, lamb chorizo, ½ chicken and rabas burger.

Wash it all down with an almighty organic juice, wines from Argentina and New Zealand, or bottled and tap beers. It’s all served in a warm and vibrant atmosphere.

Undoubtedly the best sausage in Auckland! Don't leave without eating some form of their chorizo. Perfectly cooked and seasoned lamb and T-bone too. The drinks are a little pricey but hey, what's new on K Rd? Will be back to try the sandwiches.

We ordered medium rare steaks but one of them turned out to be rare. Points to the waiter who changed the steak without any fuss. Food turned out to be good at the end.

Great evening at El Sizzling Lomito. I thought the lamb entree was a very small, but the coconut and chilli sauce was awesome. We got the Parradilla para dos (the sharing plate of meat) and it was fantastic! Highly recommend, definitely enough food for two as it is quite rich. Get a side with it

A very good experience. There was a nice atmosphere and it was enjoyable to watch the chef cook and prepare our food. Nice quirky plates and the steak was incredibly tasty and juicy. I personally was not a fan of the beef ribs but would highly recommend everything else on the sharer platter with some roasted veg!

The food here was delicious. It was cooked well and in a reasonable time. The only thing my family would suggest is more garlic butter on the steak. The garlic butter was absolutely delicious but there was more sauce on the first few bites than at the end and the lettuce had no sauce so a bit plain. Apart from that no complaints. Between us we had lamb entree, black pudding entree and chorizo entee, all good. For mains we had lamb sandwich, chicken sandwich, t-bone and fillet with sides of chips and kumara chips. All really nice. Service was good too. All our orders were correct which is sometimes hard to do as we are quite awkward.

The service and the Malbec wine was truly lovely. The meats have a smokey woodfire taste ,the steaks are of a good size. A very interesting restaurant and space at the back is a bar called the Love Bucket that mixes cocktails and serves Gin and is nice to go after your dinner.

This is a casual dining restaurant with friendly staff and excellent simple food I particularly enjoyed my entree of black pudding, chorizo and goat cheese. Perhaps a few more meal options as well as the excellent sandwiches would be good, but the meat was prepared well and tender.

Great food. Lovely meat platter. Just what our overseas guest needed after a mainly rice diet whilst travelling through India for 2 months.

It was lovely to walk in on a cold night to the smokey flames of the cooking fire, and see the chef practising his craft in front of the diners. The meat platter was pleasant although not as highly spiced as I'd thought it might be. The star was the black pudding - the best I've ever eaten. All this very reasonably priced food was provided promptly by a friendly waitress, and we left sated and content.

Took my partner out for his birthday dinner. He rarely eats out as he is a very homely person but after eating here he has gained the confidence to go out more. He loved his T-Bone steak and enjoyed the service

We loved this place! Food was delicious, and getting to see how it was cooked is awesome. We sat right up the front, and asked lots of question regarding how the cook things, and the Chef was really cool. He answered all our questions and we kinda felt like we left with a new friend! Very friendly staff.
