In my experience when you order a steak medium rare ("medio rojo") anywhere in Mexico one of two things happen. Either they ignore what you say and give it to you well-done (which is how almost all Mexicans eat steak) or they are so frightened by the order that they only cook it for 30 seconds and you get the...

I went there with 5 coworkers and we loved it. The restaurant offers a "Tapa" steak cut. My friend had to call before we arrive to make sure that the cut was available on week night. I added a photo of it. The meat was excellent and so were all the little sauces and vegetables which came with the main... More

Love to eat at this restaurant, food is great, this is the place to be if you are looking for a good steak or even pasta or pizza.

Beautiful restaurant with exceptional food and service! One of the best steaks my husband has ever had! Try the spicy meat turnovers (think empanadas). Both the rib eye and the filet mignon were perfectly prepared and delicious!

Not cheap, but worth every peso! Service, style and taste. Absolutely great! The staff was genuinely nice, helpful and patient (4 kids involved) and the atmosphere was just fun. I know where I'm going out for my birthday.

Tasty meat and nice dishes. Best meat in town , if you are not a meat-lover try the octopus. This restaurant has kept its high quality over the years. Try to book a table in the terrace.

A really good option, little bite crowded but food and service are good. Local beer is served, but a wider brand list could be very welcome!!!!

Very attentive service. The meat was a very good portion size for the price and perfectly done. The dessert was nice and had a large variety. Make reservations and try to get a seat outside because it gets a bit warm
