Visited this restaurant for the first time and it really ticks all the boxes.
The place is charming from its quaint decor to its pleasant staff. We were skillfully guided through the Argentinian menu by our host Flo who runs the place along with her husband who is the chef. She gave us such honest advice as to the various options and special items and kept us right on portion sizes. The portions were generous I must say so turn up hungry and you wont go wrong. Fantastic sirloin steak with a huge salad bowl and Rosti potato. We sat inside and the aromas from the grill were all part of the experience. The place has an excellent selection of wines and we had a Malbec which was very nice indeed. Flo was a perfect host and she has such an infectious laugh. A lovely meal and a splendid evening.

I have to say we have eaten in many places around the world and my husband said that the steak is the best he has ever had. I had the lamb and chicken and each time not disappointed. Her mother’s home made sauce recipe is amazing, she needs to sell it as i would have purchased a few bottles. Florencia and her husband make you feel very welcome. And David always had a smile to greet you and a welcoming nature. In 2 weeks we visited 3 times, it would have been more if we had found it earlier. We would like to thank you for making our holiday just that little bit extra special. Elliot enjoyed making pictures from the corks on the table.
Muchas Gracias!!
Sharon, Ian and Elliot.

Great food, great staff, great location.
If the lady remembers you have been there before (year ago) that helps ;)
However she also understands tour requirements, takes time for proper explanation, gives good recommendations. All in all a good place to be for good food!
Fresh! Grilled! Made with love, served with love!

Returned for the second time a year later and it didn’t disappoint. Great food, staff and a fantastic atmosphere. We would definitely recommend the grilled goats cheese to start.
