My wife and I along with another couple at at Ches one night. The food was good, but three of us had hamburgers and they were all under cooked. Tasted great though! Portions were large and service was average.

The ambiance was ok, but nothing special. Located on the edge of a residential area, but they have a private parking lot and I think they have valet parking at certain times. We ate around 5 pm and there was no valet at that time.

It claims to serve Argenenian food, but our menu appeared to be more of a split between American and Puerto Rican dishes.

I would eat there again.

We wandered by Che searching for a local restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised. Our steaks were excellent and huge. We had leftovers for lunch the next day. It is very open seating and the noise carries so intimate conversation is going to be difficult. As one of the other reviewers pointed out, the director's chairs aren't the most comfortable but they were ok. It's a fairly expensive restaurant.

Delicious meal, staff is very friendly. Simple decor nice dining experience in Ocean Park. The fried plantains were so amazing, try it with the skirt steak which was cooked to perfection. Pasta was also really delicious.

We have been eating at Che's for probably more than 25 years. We've experienced the very good and the routine. This last visit was just ok. We had made reservations for our group of 5, so when we arrived and saw they were full of people, with others waiting as well, we were very happy to get a table right away. Our order for drinks was taken shortly, and bread was served-warm and fresh. It took much longer to get our meal order taken, no doubt since our server had the table next to ours with some 12 to 14 people sitting there. Our beers were quite warm when the main courses arrived, all churrascos with different side dishes. The churrascos were barely warm, and the french fries that I had were mostly undercooked. The churrascos tasted just average. Only one bothered to have dessert. We come back from time to time expecting the really good experiences from many years back, but they just don't happen.

We ate at Che's on a Sunday evening. We arrived at about 6 p.m. The place filled up with many large groups--Che's appears to be very popular with families. The tables are formica and the dining chairs are director's chairs, so not a particularly upscale atmosphere. It was quite loud. For the most part the food was very good, but not great. The avocado and shrimp appetizer was excellent and enough for four people to have a reasonable sample. From start to finish it took 2 1/2 hours to eat and get our check, which was odd, given that there were people waiting for tables.
