About Moo Cantina Brick Lane

Carnivores the world over know that Argentina is home to some of the best beef around, and the meat-eaters of London are increasingly drawn to Whitechapel and the Moo Cantina, where the gaucho lifestyle is alive and well. Situated on the bustling thoroughfare of Brick Lane, their specialities are lesser spotted on the streets of London – lomitos, gourmet toasted sandwiches filled with meats and cheeses, and empanadas, the Argentinian-style pasties packed with flavour.

Further Information

The stature of South American food is on the up-and-up across England, and of course, London is where one can find some of the best purveyors in the country. Down on Brick Lane – usually more Bangladesh than Buenos Aires – one can find Moo Cantina, an Argentinian restaurant that offers street food and steaks to the hungry public of London. Lunchtime means lomitos, posh sandwiches, and empanadas, pasties which can be filled with beef, chicken, ham & cheese, and then either fried or baked.

There is, of course, far more to Argentinian cuisine, and at a restaurant called Moo Cantina, it would be remiss not to mention the beef options. The steaks available at their outlet on Brick Lane in Whitechapel are impressive, from the standard fillet, ribeye and sirloin options to the more traditionally South American vacio cut, taken from the flank of the cow. Order one up and settle down to some of the best beef in London – just remember to book a table first.

Pros: Excellent location, cosy atmosphere, great design, delicious menu, friendly staff Cons: the music should be more relative to the character of the restaurant, maybe more jazzy, more ethnic and definetely less pop/dance!

Very good steak place - they waited for my mate to turn up and then knew it was him when he walked in - some sort of wizardry. Only draw back was it was a bit pricey - but that was mainly all the beers we had ... (lads). Nice decor as well ... really authentic Argentinian wallpaper and fluffy cushions.

Fantastic. Quirky little restaurant. Really nice atmosphere and vibe. Authentic Argentine cuisine. Steak ordered by what weight was something different that was a pretty decent touch. Wife is veggie lots for her to choose from. Fried Beef empanadas 😎

Was a good lunch and the steak was lovely and the service was good just found it a little bit strange to get charged full price for the Parsley & garlic chips instead of an extra pound when the steak came with fries?

food is incredibly sub-par and way too expensive for what you get. meat is not cooked well. you could do so much better with the ingredients yourself. cocktails are mediocre at best. service is good and the place has a really great atamosphere, just a shame the main attraction is simply not good enough. unless they change they will not survive in london for very long at all.

Enjoyable, I think it's much better suited to slightly smaller groups, there was 10 of us and I think it's better when everyone eats each course at the same time. Good was great and good value as usual.

Great atmosphere.... Music was bit loud but fun. Food was really good... My friends' steaks were overcooked but the manager exchanged and brought new medium rare steaks for them... Love the sweet potato fries and fillet steak.

Good food and good service. We went as a couple and enjoyed but seems like it would be a good group venue as the atmosphere was lively. I would dine again and recommend to others.

Moo was as good as ever - great steaks, beer and even the music. My steak was cooked medium-rare when I asked for medium, but it was delicious so I didn't complain :)

My steak was too fatty and the service was poor. The staff (3 of them) had their backs to the restaurant which meant I had to got to the bar to ask for the bill. I would not got back to that Moo instead I would return to Moo in Middlesex Street.

We very much enjoyed our Christmas lunch, the menu price was reasonable and the food was great. The service was a little slow at times regarding drinks, but not unbearable. Please go to this great independent restaurant.
