“Heavenly Steak ”
Reviewed 5 April 2014 via mobile

Malbec is an Argentinian restaurant south of Puerto Viejo at Playa Chiquita on the other side of the road. It's a romantic place in the woods, but we also saw many families there. We ordered a guacamole-filled tomato (4,000c) as appetizer and pepper tenderloin steak (10,000c) with a side of gratinated potatoes) and skirt steak (10,000c) as main course. Both came with a big side of perfectly prepared vegetables. The food was heavenly, I don't remember the last time I had such a perfect meal. Highly recommended!!
