Food
The well-known empanadas (Argentinian homemade pies), which could easily make a whole meal, offer a variety of fillings: 100% beef and red peppers; free-range chicken and spices; ham and mozzarella; and mozzarella, basil and tomato. Ordering from the entradas (starters) is recommended. In fact, a visit is incomplete without trying the provoleta, a decadent Argentinian smoked provolone cheese, served on a pesto sauce with pepper and salsa criolla and the grilled chorizo, which pops in your mouth, filling it with flavours of paprika, parsley and pepper, and served with a tomato salsa.

Naturally, the main attraction is the meat, which is sourced from the Midlands in KwaZulu-Natal. Simply and lovingly cooked on the grill with coarse salt, the meat offering includes short ribs cooked on the spit for four hours, rib eye, and fillet steak on the bone. But really worth trying is the Aranita steak. Known as prime meat and often reserved for the butcher, the spidery-looking cut comes from the inside hip and is as tender as it looks. Once you’ve tried it with chimichurri sauce on the side, you’ll want to take a whole bottle home, which you can for R65.

Do ask about the tapas menu for small plates of ceviche, grilled tuna and pork belly. On the dessert menu, the Flan del Rio de la plata is a chef’s special – a perfect portion of cream caramel served with the restaurant’s signature dulce de leche, a Latin-American speciality made from slowly heating sweetened milk.

Drinks
The waitrons can recommend beautiful Malbec wines to complement your meat. Enquire about the cocktails – the mezcal margarita made with mezcal, Cointreau, chilli and lime juice is a great way to open up your palate.

Service
Personalised and attentive service from both the owners and the waitrons.

Ambience
It feels like a secret spot that no one except those in the know know about.

Best for…
A mid-week dinner for two.

    One of my fabourite places in Johannesburg. The kitchen, the atmosphere, the wine and the service are amazing! Che has the perfect Argentine asado with a twist that makes it so worth it! Of course, the reasons for going to Che go beyond the food: the entire experience and the incredibly cool owners takes you straight back to Argentina! All in all, Che is an absolute must in the city.
    Best place in Johannesburg. Food is really good, specially meat. Beatiful place. I've heard Che is moving to another neighbourhood. Excelente service.
    Oustading kitchen, perfect atmosphere, great service and the most amazing owners! Che has an authentic argentine asado but going there is much more than food, it's a fantastic experience that takes you straight to Argentina!
    Love this place and the food is amazing! I really enjoyed the experience. I will come back for sure and I highly recommend it!
    Experience an authentic Argentinian culinary adventure at Che. The ambience is amazing. I love that the clientele is so varied with many expats and we always seem to meet new people as well as enjoy the delicious food and cocktails. I always HAVE to have the empanadas- and as for the chimmichurri it’s the one and only. No other has even come close to Che’s. The owners are warm and friendly and all in all if you want excellent food and good company and a warm and friendly South American experience then this is the place for you to try. You won’t be disappointed.
