Oscar, a native to Uruguay, came to South Africa as a young boy. He quickly fell in love with the vibrancy and eclectic mix of South African culture, particularly its love for great meat. As time wore on though, he began to feel a little homesick, not least for his moms homemade recipes and wondrous cooking persona. Oscar decided to take it upon himself to start recreating recipes from home, making mouth-watering empanadas and assados to match. Having perfected these homemade recipes, Oscar was introduced to Bernardo, a flamboyant national who came to South Africa from Argentina just 4 years ago. The pair quickly became the best of friends and through grit, sweat and determination, decided to start a business selling empanadas at the now famous Arts on Main in Maboneng. Before they knew it, Oscar and Bernardo were selling hundreds of units every weekend. They found a terrific gap in the market and with growth came an expansion into other food items, including pork and sirloin sandwiches served on the open fire grill (now famous in the CBD region). Having done the market business for quite sometime, the only other logical route was to upscale to a restaurant; something unique and off the cuff. But where? Hence, in the deep and mysteriously cool setting of Maboneng Precinct, CHE Argentine Grill was born. A true and authentic little Argentina situated in the heart of Joburg, with grills to tickle your taste buds and good company to welcome you in…Enjoy!

    The food was under seasoned - really disappointing. Some of the meals were so fatty (way beyond what a good steak should contain). I went to Che twice before on Fox Street and the standard has really dropped.

    Hi Trudy how are you? Thank you so much for the feedback. I am truly disappointed and sorry that your experience was not a pleasant. Please do let me know which steak it was that you ordered, as the fat content on each steak will be different, and so that we may also rectify this. Please do come visit us again and next time I will personally make sure that your experience will be a pleasant one as the standard that is expected from us. Regards Oscar

    We hade mainly tapas and starters, what we found some were excellent and some very disappointing such as the pork belly. This was very dry and biltong like with no real flavor, where the oxtail was really good, tasty and fell neatly off the bone. The staff were excellent and service good

    Che goes up and down. Sometimes the food is amazing sometimes is is average. When the kitchen staff has a bad day you will notice it. Come there once to twice a month. The service is getting worse and worse: slow, not paying attention; empty glasses people trying to order and no server. When the whole terrace and the tables inside all waving either your servers don’t look well or can’t be bothered. The food is good but doesn’t make up for the slow and bad service. Always praise Che and recommend them however after the service being bad now again 4th time in a row am saying that if they don’t shape up I wont be coming again: there are other places in Joburg that have just as nice food.
