I used to visit this restaurant regularly for the past over ten years. I came back with husband, family and friends for the quality of food and service. Last night I returned after many months. It was very disappointing this time. When I arrived, only few tables were occupied. I sat in a table waiting for friends to arrive. Nobody... More

I used to come here years ago on a weekly basis, now the quality of every meat including the churrasco, chicken and even the filet mignon is horrible. Will never visit this place again. Two guys serving the entire restaurant on a sunday afternoon.. very sad, never again.

We visit the restaurant on a Monday around 2:00pm. The place is well decorated with Argentinian motives. There were 3 other groups having lunch. The service was fast and very courteous. We ordered steaks and they were delicious. The exact cooking point. They were served within reasonable time and everything was just fine. We'll come back for parrillada.

First visit in a long time and was a truly nice surprise. Beautiful and simple decor, piano music, good service and great food, all combined to create a memorable evening. Both choices of main courses were excellent and the presentation was very good. What a liked the most was that the waitress and the rest of the personnel were respectful... More

I expected a better steak from this restaurant . It tasted as if the grill has been started with kerosene , and that was transferred to the steak. The service was good . Ambiance acceptable for a business meeting.
