Cuisine: Argentinian, Barbeque, Steakhouse
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35

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.

I think the T bone was quite possibly the best steak I have had in this country. Additionally the Flan was to die for \, service was exceptional

Cosy NY Style setting where you can sit at the bar and watch the Chef prepare and cook your food .
The entrees were spectacular and the Mains didn't disappoint either.
All in all a very pleasant night and definitely heading back soon !

This is my favourite restaurant in NZ! I love the ambient. The food is delicious and perfectly prepared. These guys are experts at meat...if you are searching for meat or Latin food....this is the place. Don’t forget to leave space for the desserts! Just amazing.

and friendly. Will definitely come again.

We were so impressed! Delicious food, a small menu but well prepared and cooked right in front of us! So not only did we get dinner but also a show. The chef was friendly and explained things as he cooked. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be back!

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.

Absolutely delicious. First time went to El Sizzling Lomito, we've ordered Sirlion steak, and it was nice and juicy. Service was really nice and helpful too. We loved watching the open fire barbeque, Will definitely come back again.

El Sizzling Lomito took us to Argentina. It was interesting watching our meal being cooked on the wood-fired BBQ. Delicious food and great service. Highly recommended.

Best service and food, love! :)

Ambience and setting was cosy and comfortable. Food was overall was good. Had the short rib, empanadas, fries and pork sandwich. Short rib was very tender and smoky.
Experience slightly marred by the waitress who came across as telling us off when we questioned a wrong order which is why rating is 3 otherwise would be 4.5 Person who took our apologised and offered to correct which was appreciated.
We enjoyed the wrong item order anyway and of course the rest.
Would return to try other offerings on the menu

My partner got the T-bone steak and I got the scotch fillet. Both steaks were cooked perfectly! I also got the beetroot salad as a side which I really enjoyed.
We love First Table. We are trying different restaurants we wouldn't normally go to and finding some real gems.

Definitely a 'goto' spot if you're after some Argentinian BBQ....that rib eye was on point!!

Only downside was that it took a long time before the food was served, was waiting for about an hour before the food came. The place wasn't even that busy so was a bit surprised at how slow the food came out.

Totally enjoyed our dinner at El Sizzling Lomito! We haven't had a meal in the city for ages but the deal on First Table was too good to not go! We would definitely be back and have recommended it to family and friends who are willing to try too! Thanks!

- dined at El Sizzling Lomito on

For us it was standard. The rocket salad had ok portion. The grilled halloumi salad was not good at all. It was supposed to be grilled, but it tasted cold. It didnt have much flavor, they forgot the chilly pesto which was not good. They ran out of lamb ribs for Friday night dinners. Not good at all guys! Is it because we come with first table?the gilled meats were ok. Portion is really small. Sides are ordered on the top. Kumara fries were so soggy. I don't think I come back again..sorry. I have tasted many food from other restaurants. The food is below average.
