“Bargain”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

Although this was rated in our guide book as expensive, it really wasn't. For about $100, we had the ribs, ribeye, 2 glasses of wine, salad, grilled tripe, 2 dessert and coffee. The service was great and they are attentive. Wine menu comes out on an iPad.

The meat itself is grilled with only a dash of salt so there isn't much of a flavor, but just the meat. I wanted a little more flavor, but that was my only complaint.

This place is crawling with locals and tourists alike. It's a bargain compared to the states!

“Good steakhouse”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

The quality of the beef was very good, the restaurant welcoming and very beautifully decorated and staff were prompt and courteous. Though, a small minus, my entrana steak was not medium-rare as I had ordered (it was half medium-rare and half rare). I am not usually officious about it but I would have expected a perfect steak from such a rated restaurant. Fair to say that my wife's bife de chorizo was perfect though.
It's not cheap but it is not too expensive either and it is a very good choice.

“One of the best steakhouses in palermo soho”
Reviewed 18 August 2012

This restaurant is always bustling full. But as you wait for your table, the staff kindly offers a glass of complementary sparkling wine. The steak is top notch and you can see the "butchery" and asado in the background. The staff is attentive and helpful. But you have to purchase all the sides separately.

“Eat like a king...be welcomed like a neighbor!”
Reviewed 15 August 2012 via mobile

Tremendous typical Argentinean cuisine! Beef galore and all the correct accompaniments...tremendous wine list and knowledgeable sommelier/manager/greeter. If you don't reserve and you have to wait a glass of proseco is served :)
Highly recommended to all!! Don't forget to sign your bottle of wine before leaving...also the list is on iPad so you can email yourself your selection!

“Awesome parrilla with local appeal!”
Reviewed 15 August 2012

We had a fantastic time at this first rate steakhouse. The server was as authentic and genuine as they come. I would return for the service alone! The steak was very good.
