We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant. I had the Cordero Patagonico and my husband had a steak. They were both excellent. They way you order salad is a bit odd. You pay for each added vegetable...and make sure you order the lettuce separately, otherwise you'll get a 'salad' of nothing but a huge bowl of shredded carrots. We... More

We had a lovely dinner at Mi Viejo recently after striking out at 2 other steak places--the first steak house we went to didn't have filet of flank steak that night (you know the feeling when you have some particular food in mind and can't get it, like getting to the pizza place only to find that it's closed), or...

Great restaurant to try "Cordero Patagonico a la estaca" (Patagonic grilled lamb), a classic dish in this area: you have to taste it. Friendly staff, cozzy place and reasonable prices.

We came here after we read a recommendation on a local site.. We've had a fillet and a lasagna. I've ordered the fillet to be done medium, but it arrive over done and close to medium well. It was done without any seasoning and had tasted only of meat (I mean that in the bad sense, like bland meat). The... More

Get here early as it fills up quickly, We were 3rd group in line. By the time we had our mains, the place was jammed and they were turning away groups. We had the Parillijada - mixed grill. So much food...it is supposed to be for 3 people, but it was enough to feed this family of 4 twice. We... More

Crowded, hurried, mediocre food. Great show since they cook in front of you, but the food is decidedly poor tasking. We waited an hour for our turn and had we known that the servers would be that busy and food that poor, we would have gone elsewhere.

The place is nice, with comfortable tables. The service is very good and the food is excellent! Lamb is fantastic and there are good wine options for a very reasonable price! I recommend a visit!

We spent our Christmas Evening there. They dont accept reservation so you better go early, which we did and had a good table for 4. We ordered 4 lambs but waiter told us 3 was enough. All was excellent and plenty. Price is competitive.

Good food (and big quantities), nice waiters, affordable prices, and fast service (says a lot in Argentina). Ordered the cordero and sides of salade (thank god for some greens) and homemade papas fritas (yes!). Not a great atmosphere as it has no definite style and no traditional argentinian anything. Fun to watch the cordero grill, impressive kitchen. All together a... More

Had a lunch there with some friends there and we loved it! The atmosphere is chic and contemporary, but the parrilla (grilled) meats are as tasty and juicy as in any of the more "traditional" looking places. Actually we were attracted by the spacious and modern space, and the warm welcoming of their staff. Dishes are good to share. Do... More
