If you want to go to a place where there are no Argentines, this is the place! As an Argentinian, I am really disappointed. I went to celebrate my birthday this weekend, I brought some friends to taste and live the Argentinian cuisine, not only was the food not authentic from Argentina, but not even the atmosphere. I give them 3 stars because the staff was very friendly and polite, but sadly I will not recommend this place. See less

It was a good place! Atmosphere was not great... BUT if you just want a quiet night with a partner or friend to talk and eat something yummy- it’s a good place. Otherwise if you want people buzzing and a fashionable restaurant... this is not the place See less

Friendly staff, fast service. Slightly overpriced. Food tasty, not outstanding. Sufficient size meals. We had the deal, 3 courses for $59. Pate was very nice. See less

OMG!!! I'll have to try everything on the menu now. The ambience was gorgeous and the restaurant staff were onto it, every single time. Friendly, fast and efficient. The food for entree we ordered was; the croquettes, squid and empanadas. Couldn't fault a thing. For mains we ordered the 200gm sirloin and salmon special. AMAZING!!! Even for a small steak, it was incredible and filling. The salmon skin was crispy and still attached and the fish was cooked superbly!! The cost??!! Worth every penny!! So we'll priced and the value you received I would've been happy to pay more! Thank you for such a delightful dining experience and thank you from our taste buds!! See less

The brilliant colour & cuisine of Argentina has been brought to life in Sydney, with Stamford Plaza’s La Boca Bar & Grill. The eclectic & vibrant decor is definitely the first thing that catches your eye – with bold colours striking out from across the restaurant’s every corner. A far cry from the subtle and styled interior of most hotel restaurants, this easy brilliance is a welcoming change of pace. The flaming Asado grill. That most iconic of Argentinian culinary spectacles, the flaming Asado grill, is in prominent view from any point in the restaurant – the glistening cuts and barbequing sides of meat a tantalizing reminder of what Argentinian cuisine is here to offer. ‘La Boca’ is Spanish for “The Mouth” – and that’s exactly what this restaurant is about. That may seem a little unsurprising, given the usual role of restaurants, however this Argentinian bar & grill is taking this to the next level. With a packed menu containing staples such as empanadas, churros & chorizo, the real standouts are the variety of barbequed meats. Between the flame-grilled Asado meat and the traditional Parrilla (gaucho) grill, there is nothing for the meat-lover to find wanting. I can’t breeze past the Parrilla without mentioning the Entraña skirt steak – phenomenally tender, beautifully seasoned & grilled to perfection – it’s rare to find a steak so unbelievably well-handled. All the meat used by La Boca is sourced from within Australia, and head chef Nicolas informs us that the kitchen follows the philosophy of ‘Nose to Tail’ where the cuts of meat not grilled and served are used to season the restaurants’ stocks and broths. The dessert menu is similarly impressive, with the Espresso Caramel Cake a true standout, as visually impressive as it is bursting with flavour. The cocktails on offer are many and varied, each bringing their own unique twist to the institution of Argentinian dining, as well as a wide selection of classics. The wine list is designed to go hand-in-hand with the menu, with special mention going to the selection of malbec, bringing that fine Argentine tradition to Australia in dazzling style. La Boca is located in Sydney Airports’ Stamford Plaza, at 241 O’Riordan St Mascot – opening from 5am for breakfast (and bringing out the famed Asado grill at noon) and open till late. With Christmas just around the corner, there’s no shame in starting the holiday eating early – so get in and find out what the fuss is about! See less

There is Argentinian Asado in Sydney. This can be found at La Boca Restaurant inside the Airport Stamford Hotel, Sydney.
This provided us with fond memories of our visit to Argentina last year, which was a culinary highlight for us and Asado became our favourite food. This is where the meats are cooked on the Asado or Parilla grill (meat mounted on a rack, cooked over an open flame) by the Asador (BBQ Chef/meat master) and this stuff is next level. Whilst we’re not all going to Argentina for this, we can experience it in Australia, through the Stamford Hotel and at their Hotel Restaurant, La Boca.
La Boca is named after the suburb in Buenos Aires, the area filled with colourful houses which has inspired the decor of this restaurant. The walls are draped in a vibrant print reflecting the colours of La Boca. However, the big draw card and main attraction is the Asado, with flames roaring and the meat neatly sitting above cooking and taking on flavour from the method of cooking, it is impressive and something to behold.
The restaurant also has a fully stocked bar, with the bar staff preparing a range of cocktails and they also have a range of wine and craft beer on offer.
We have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions but returned for a dining event with some fellow foodies. We sampled Argentinian wine - Malbec, paired with the traditional Argentinian cuisine.
Empanadas are common fare throughout South America and the La Boca version have a nice crisp doughy outer casing and have a tasty filling of corn, beef and lamb. The only problem, we were left wanting more, but knew the feast had only just begun.
We have already mentioned the Asadors are meat masters and this technique was on show and translated into seafood too, with their amazing squid. Beautifully tender and marinated in a lime dressing, with capers and chives.
The Traditional sausage sampler is another insight into the Argentinian passion for preparing and cooking carnivorous delights. The sausages are juicy and have plenty of flavour. The last of our entrees was the delicious Provolone Croquette.
The mains we shared were all mouthwatering quality meat based dishes. They use locally sourced 100% grass-fed, choice Australian meats. The use of Asado and Parilla based cooking Is designed to enhance the flavours of the meat through the grill over Australian redgum and Argentinean charcoal.
To sample a bit of everything the La Boca Signature Fire Grill is a good option. A mixed share platter of meat lovingly cooked over open flame for 8 hours, including the free range pork belly and lamb asador. This also comes with skirt steak, pork sausage, salt bush lamb sausage and chicken.
Cooked on the Parilla Grill was the Entrana skirt steak, which was a favourite (and the favourite of all other diners too). It was a thin cut, which was super succulent and served with a chimichurri sauce. This also features on the Laboca $15 express lunch menu, well worth stopping in for.
A higher grade steak on the menu was the 42 day dry aged steak sirloin. A lovely cut of meat with plenty of flavour, also grilled on the Parilla and cooked to order.
We also got an Argentinian corn cake - traditional corn and pumpkin hot cake with grilled mushrooms and salad.
The group finished off with dessert which included a soft flan type dish - the Pear clafoutis (red wine and poached pear almond cake), a slice of the chocolatey and coffee flavoured traditional espresso caramel cake which was rich and decadent. A must order is their Churros with caramel fondue, another Argentinian Specialty. These light and fluffy doughy sticks of goodness add freshly fried and perfect to dip in a pot of dulce de leche (caramel).
The meal here is unreal and we absolutely loved it. We would highly recommend coming to try their Adado and authentic Argentinian fare. See less

Very generous portion for weekend lunch specials. Kids eat free too as part of the package. Entry to the hotel is a bit tricky due to roadworks around the hotel See less

Nice fresh tap beer and a good ambiance. Even sitting alone you do not feel alone. Not really a restaurant for vegetarians but they had a gnocchi and a garden salad. Good service. See less

Was good but not great. Has the potential and the food is nice but the service was slow even in a quiet time. Pork belly was amazing but overall it's lacking for a 5 star hotel. Great lunch time special. Worth a look if you are in the area or spending the night at the airport hotel precinct. See less

Wouldn't go if i was real hungry but would go back for quality. Very nice place at the Stamford Plaza with an open kitchen so you can see the chefs at work over open fire. Little bit pricey and meal sizes weren't anything to brag about but for something a bit different this was well worth it. Never had Chimichurri before, absolutely loved it with the skirt steak. The tastes were terrific though not a big range of options. Kids meals very reasonably sized and of very good quality. See less

I ordered a children's menu for my daughter. They brought it quickly, deliciously. Only one did not really like that the plate was not carried away when we finished it. See less

I'm from Argentina and I couldn't have had a better experience. Tatiana was amazing: friendly, accommodating, smiling all the time. Food was delicious. Empanadas just the way we have them at home. Steak made the Argentinian way and delicious panqueques for dessert. Went for the lunch set menu (served until 5 pm) were you get 2 options for $25 and then paid another $12 for the panqueques. Super recommended!! See less
