This place has a very pleasant atmosphere in the smallish ground floor level. Good frendly unobtrusive service. Our ribeye steaks were served just how we like them and were very tasty indeed and of a very good quality. Good chips of the sweet and normal variety, great tomato and onion salad and lovely sauces. All washed down with Argentinean Malbec.... More

As is known the restaurant is not large but equally you are not crammed in. A warm welcome by the family owners and then shown to your table whether its on the entrance level or down stairs. The menu as you will expect has many cuts of steak on and at different weights. There is plenty of side orders to... More

My son and I visited last Saturday evening and had a very enjoyable meal. We were probably fortunate to get a table at short notice, as the restaurant was busy. It is not very big, however,we thought this made for a much nicer and welcoming atmosphere which is not always the case in larger restaurants. Anyway, the service was faultless... More

After having a sausage platter, delicious rumpsteak with herbbutter, tasty gnocchi, garlic bread and a nice dessert with dulce de leche icecream when we visited made my night complete. I would recommend the rumpsteak as it was very tasty. Also the gnocchi was a real catch! The personnel was very professional and kind. The restaurant itself is small with a... More

Excellent steak Great staff Nice atmosphere Sadly I had to go back to work after work so couldn't try the wines but will be back to try a glass of red with the meat. A bit pricey but I rather pay more for amazing quality beef than eat lower quality more often

I have never made a review before but I feel this restaurant is worth while making a comment. There was a little confusion to start as they tried to bring the main before the starter, but it was swiftly rectified. The starter was good, but let me say the steak was absolutely magnificent, cooked exactly to our liking and tasted... More

I cannot recommend this place enough. Have been here three times now and every visit was first class. Only one steakhouse (Quality meats in New York) even comes close to this place - the steak is cooked to absolute perfection.

Visited this restaurant with colleagues and had a great dinner. The meat is so tender and tasteful, cooked to perfection. Nice variations in side dishes and sauces. The desserts were as lovely as the main course. The staff was really friendly and we felt welcome even though we hadn't made reservations and the place was almost full. Would definitely visit...

A lovely family-owned (I believe) authentic Argentinean steakhouse. The steaks are excellent and large (I couldn't believe my 300g ribeye was only 300g - either it was more or I am deceived at other restaurants!) and the sauces and sides are perfect. The starters here are not to my taste, but desserts are again fantastic. The two best features after... More
