Excellent food and service. The rack of lamb was tender an cooked perfectly. The was a family sitting at the table next to us. The kids had ordered what look like the thickest juiciest hamburgers outside New York. The sides of homemade curly fries amazing

We wanted a break from seafood. Super nice waiter. We started with dates wrapped in bacon and codfish croquettes Then We had the mixed grill sampler, cooked rare as requested. And a bottle of affordable Spanish wine.

This was a real surprise. Our first time here and it was either our # 1 or # favorite. The steaks were excellent.

It's an Argentine restaurant - so steak rules supreme! Nice atmosphere, really good service, and amazing steaks, pork, sausages. Okay, salads and veggies (grilled asparagus) were good too, but when in Buenos Aires EAT THE MEAT!
