“The outside area was packed & suddenly...”
Reviewed 18 March 2010

The outside area was packed & suddenly there was a massive downpour - chaos- but the staff were superb .
They apologised (why??) & carried on as if nothing had happened even though some of the inside area was flooded too
Service with a smile.

“Awful food and service”
Reviewed 15 December 2009

This was the worst meal we've had in our five week trip to Argentina.

The ravioli was slimy and fishy. Bread was stale. The roasted veggies were burnt.

But the worst was the end of the meal. The waiter had marked up different items on the menu higher than they were printed. We noticed one dish was supposed to be 33 pesos, which the waiter marked as 40 pesos. After we corrected that, we noticed he had charged us for 5 beers, not 3. All in all, he had given himself a nice 20% tip by marking up the menu items.

We paid, leaving no tip. For authentic food with good service and value look elsewhere.
