You probably have guessed it from our name, yes we are Mid & East Lothian's first Argentine Cafe and Grill. We know that a lots of meat lovers are desperate for a good steak, so we decided to create this place where you could hang out with friends and family, eat good quality, affordable food. While our A La Carte menu is true to the spirit of the country; a cultural blending of indigenous and Mediterranean influences created by the Spanish and Italian Immigrants, our café menu consist of “all-time Anglo- Argentine" dishes , and hot beverages . We have carefully selected few of the best Argentine wine to match your dishes. A classic food and wine combination, Malbec and a juicy steak truly is

I can't even describe how amazing this place is! We came for the first time as we heard a lot of good words about this place and now I see why. Delicious food, staff are brilliant. We've been served by the young woman and thanks...to her for a perfect balance of friendliness and professionalism. Very attentive staff. I will definitely return here with my family next time.More

Absolutely beautiful place. From start to finish the evening, food, service was brilliant. Staff are very welcoming and always smiling. This was our 3rd visit last weekend and I can't wait to book again! For the starters we had gambas and chipotle wings. I had...a fillet steak and it was cooked to perfection and very delicious. I love tempura veg there and a blue cheese sauce. My partner had a ribeye and he said that's the best steak he ever tasted. Even though we were full we had a cheesecake to share as we love to finish our meal with something sweet. Delicious! At the end of paying the bill we had a nice conversation with the young lady and she came back to us with some limoncello as I've mentioned that we were here to have a birthday meal. I didn't expect that and that was a nice way to end our evening. Highly recommended! I can't wait to be back soonMore

My family and I visited this restaurant for the second time and were disappointed that not only was there no improvement on the service but it was actually worse. We live locally and feel strongly about supporting local businesses but not sure we would rush...back. The gentleman who was serving us needs to take e few lessons in hospitality as he was sullen, unfriendly and definitely didn’t put himself out. Actually a few of the staff looked pretty miserable. We were already in for an hour and had placed our order earlier upon arrival and still hadn’t received our main course. This isn’t a very big restaurant and we counted 6 other tables who had came in quite a bit after us and were all tucking into their meals. We had to ask a member of staff where our food was. They realised their mistake - they had forgotten about us! We eventually receive our food but it was getting late so didn’t order anything else and asked for our bill. I did politely mention we were disappointed and the gentleman said give us another chance!! He handed me a bottle of wine as a way of an apology. I think improving their customer care skills would benefit them all and ensuring that customers food and drinks orders are delivered within a reasonable timeframe.More
