Very friendly service and good food for reasonable price. There were, I think, a local group of people celebrating while we went there, always a good sign. Food was good, we took pasta and goulash and both were very nice. Cozy atmosphere.

Imaginative toppings, definitely not at all stingy. Will split toppings on a single pizza which is as well as even after a massive walk, my wife and I were not able to finish a single pizza. Friendliest service in Argentina to date.

From beginning to end, this restaurant offered unusual combinations of flavors in every course: soup, salad, entree and dessert. Very creative and successful. Expensive but worth it.

Surprised to find classy sophisticated restaurant menu on the house. Priced accordingly. Beyond a bar of bistro level. Fresh. Love the lamb spareribs and mixed starter of smoked trout, venison, etc. Quiet ambience. Value overall.
