Great food. Perfectly cooked steaks. Large portions. Live violinist while I was there. Knowledgeable staff that was professional and friendly at the same time.

The Waiters all stand around staring at you - they look like policemen due to their uniforms - the food is mediocre, there is a play area for kids (like Ikea or McDonalds) the wine list is appalling

Took a couple of friends to this restaurant on a Sunday evening. The food was very good, as had been recommended, and we all enjoyed our meal. We would definitely revisit , especially if in the mood for an argentinian steak.

The food was fantastic the only thing that surpassed it was the service. We do not speak spanish but we had 4 waiters assisting us one of which spoke english for us. We had a full meal with drinks and dessert and our bill was $1000 pesos. This is a bit expensive for here but so worth it. Go hungry!!!... More
