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!

    Great food, vibe and excellent service. Found it a bit on the pricy side but overall we enjoyed it very much.

    We ordered the lamb chops and pork belly. Pork belly was dry, tasteless and undercooked. The lamb chops were mostly bone and very little meat. I also couldn’t understand burying them in mint leaves? Very weird

    The cat, does it really have to walk around while we’re eating? Apart from that everything else was great!

    Che Argentine Grill responded on Wed 25 Jan 23:
    Hi Sivuyile, We are getting a cage for the cat for those who are uncomfortable with her running around because we don't want anyone feel uncomfortable at our place dinning with us. We love it when everyone feels at home. Hope to see you soon.. Much love from us
