But not if you want a good cut of beef. They have some very good appetizers. Nice atmosphere, pretty good service.

In busy, traffic choked Polanco, this is a little island of tranquility, a good place to sit down and relax over a meal. The service is very good and attentive. As for the food, it certainly is above average, but whether it is great or merely good seemingly depends on exactly what item is ordered, they do not seem to handle all the different cuts of steak equally well. In our experience, however, the waiters seem willing to discuss with you the various options and help you make the best choice for your particular needs and tastes. This is preferable to just ordering blindly from the menu.

If the weather is nice, this is a great place to sit outside on the veranda and enjoy the view. The staff does need to do a better job in keeping the various street vendors from peddling flowers, lottery tickets and watches (etc.) to the guests seating on the terrace. If you like to shop at Adolfo Dominguez, there is a large store right across the street.

Service is great and friendly and this is always my starting point. How can you eat and be happy with bad serve? In this restaurant the service rocks! Its great! And then lets go on to the food: Our morcilla plate as an apetizer paired with corn and beef empanadas were all perfect. The chimichurri sauce is really what it should taste like, and the steak, we had a "Vacio" was just perfect! One of our favorite restaurants in Condesa.

This was one of the best restaurants that we ate in during our trip to Mexico. The meal was great, if a little expensive (£50 including wine) but the quality of the meal plus service was excellent. If you like good quality beef try this restaurant.

It's a good place to go if you don't have great expectations. They serve meat and empanadas. But if you're looking for the finest Argentinian food this might not the place for you.
