“Not like before”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

I knew el chivito at the beginning. It was amazing, even prices were good. But after months, the food wasn't the same anymore and the price was increasing. Now, you can't get a milanesa of beef, just of chicken and is more expensive. It's a shame. Empanadas are less filled with stuffing and is very very expensive. Even in california, you find GIANT empanadas around 2 dollars, here, you have a baby one around 3 euros. I think it's insane. The morcilla has 70% of fat and tacos are not real tacos. The only thing that it's good even if they changed the bread and it's for sure frozen bread, it's el chivito de Leo. I loved that place, but now, it's very commercial.

“Argentinian style, but just style”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

This tiny restaurant is located in the historical centre of Montplellier and specializes in South American and Argentinian dishes. Overall, the food was good, and the restaurant can be recommended to those who are looking for food South American style. However, the restaurant's features are far from those of a real Argentinian restaurant, and the menu does not offer very much choiches. Plus, the meat comes from the EU and not from Argentina (as stated in the menu), so it obviously cannot match the one that can be found in real Argentinian restaurants.
