Following the Argentine ethos that eating, drinking and most importantly life are there to be enjoyed with friends, family and lovers.
From midday to late at night we offer a shared menu bringing people together just like a family Asado in Argentina.
The warm and welcoming bohemian environment at San Telmo emulates its namesake, the oldest neighbourhood of Buenos Aires. San Telmo, the suburb, has traditional parrilla restaurants, bars and beautiful Colonial buildings creating an enchanting backdrop for the eclectic bohemian art and weekend street market.
300 year old antique doors and historic 1930’s coloured glass soda bottles from the suburb of San Telmo, you will feel instantly transported to Buenos Aires.
Our logo was designed in B.A. by the top fileteado artist drawing inspiration on the vibrant and lively tango culture, which remains a huge influence throughout the city and on our music play list at our restaurant.
The restaurant’s interior is a meeting of old world Argentine Bodega, and Melbourne style open-plan dining where the kitchen is an intimate part of the atmosphere. Appointed with imported cow hides.
In our endeavour to capture the essence of Argentine culture and cuisine, we have imported a bespoke 2.5 metre parrilla charcoal grill, hand made by Pirincho, a lifelong master of the craft.
He is regarded as one of the most important parrilla craftsman in the world. Pirincho’s previous customers include former Argentine presidents, the Ferrari workshop in Modena, and the VIP restaurant in the Barcelona FC Stadium.
At the San Telmo Group, we are passionate about creating the best restaurant experiences available in Melbourne and strive to work with professionals that share our passion for exceptional service and high quality food. With San Telmo, Asado, Palermo, Pastuso and the newly opened Robata, the career opportunities are endless.
We foster an inclusive, innovative and exciting working culture and we take staff development very seriously so if you'd like to work in an inspiring, supportive and progressive organisation, we would love to hear from you.
