“Bad food but nice service”
Reviewed 24 December 2013

We were here on Xmas eve and with limited choices, stopped here because it was very busy. The restaurant was full and we got the last table on the terrace. The server spoke a little English and was very friendly. We ordered smoothies, garlic prawns, fries, salad and empanadas. The service was quite slow, took 35 minutes to get our food. The table next to us was complaining because they had waited for over an hour for their food. The prawns were actually very tiny shrimp and the serving was small. Fries were fine and the empanadas were good. The salad was pathetic. A few strips of wilted lettuce, a few slices of tomatoe, tons of raw onions and some shredded carrots. Only oil was provided so I asked for some lemons which they did bring. We also got a basket of stale bread. I wouldn't return here but I would say that both servers were lovely and tried hard to serve us well. One spoke quite good English.

“Terrible service, mushrooms in the toilets”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

We were attracting by the location and price but after experiencing this place, I would not recommend anyone to have dinner here. Before to order any food, please visit the toilet´s walls covered with mushrooms. The service was terrible, we wait almost 1hour and half to get our dessert and asked 4 time in the meantime. None of the waiters apologized and even spoke a few basic English. Every five minutes, the poor children of the street are begging money as they are allowed by the place to disturb customers. Some other customers gave some bread. Once out of the terrace, the children throw the bread in the street.

“Great food, service and live music”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

Whilst travelling I spent several evenings here when visiting the Iguazu falls. Service was brilliant, not great at understanding English but willing to communicate through pointing and hand gestures, one or two waitresses speak fluent English. Live music for half an hour every couple of hours. I advise the steak, its true about Argentinian meat. Simple food, pizza was fantastic. Played cards here all evening into the early hours and were not troubled to keep buying drinks etc. Relaxed atmosphere. Busy road so noisey but after a while not noticable.
As always with everywhere stray dogs will try and beg!

“Great steaks, lovely outdoor area”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

We had better steaks here than some of the better known parillas. Great service, casual atmosphere and nice people watching location.
