My husband and I love this place! The meat is really delicious (and, almost better than in Argentina)! And also the pastas and salads are top-notch and the waiting staff highly attentive! Try it out and enjoy! 😋

Had lunch here in the heart of the centro of this beautiful city. The meat was delicious, steak comes with a salad and few french fries. No fuss, meat lovers will adore this place.

Good restaurant despite having staff hustle tourists as they walk by. The service is friendly and quick and the selection of food -especially meats- and drinks are excellent. The steak and the pastas were very reasonable but the empanadas stood out. The crust was warm and flaky and the fillings delicious. Worth it just for these babies !

This restaurant is located on a popular pedestrian boulevard in the heart of San Cristobal de las Casas. The staff was very accommodating to our large group arriving without a reservation. The empanadas were excellent and most of our group had steak and were pleased. The service was good and the Mexican wines were excellent.

Good Argentinian steak, and great Mexican wine list!! A bit overpriced, but a nice dine out experience that will satisfy your meat craving.

Service was good and they weren't hovering over us. The tapenade before the meal with the bread was delicious. Both of our steaks were done perfectly. Great flavor, tender and the size matched the menu description. I wish that there were fewer sellers on the street that interrupt your meal, but this isn't the restaurants fault.

Our steak was delicious but the service was very in-your-face and when we didn't give them the highest service rate as a result, they didn't even say goodbye to us!

That obiously gave us a bad feeling... More
