“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Good traditional Argentine food and service. Our family ordered meat and chicken and were extremely happy with the service and food. Most food is cooked on a barbecue (Parilla) and the tastes are absolutely yummy.

Good place to eat in or get delivered to your hotel / apartment.

“Best steak in years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

I tried the bife de chorizo here, as I had heard good things, and it did not disappoint!

It was red (cold/lukewarm inside), juicy, and massive! Definitely one of the best I've had!

The red housewine was less than €3 per liter (!) so needless to say we enjoyed quite a few glasses of that as well.

All in all a great place, don't miss it!

Thank Tom K

“Good service, great food”

Nice setting, excellent food. Service was okay - but the location and the food were excellent. Take the local recommendations on food and wine and you cant go wrong.

“Surly , Appalling Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013 via mobile

We were accompanied by our Argentine friend who is ever polite and understanding. But Jose the waiter was just a jerk. Would not bring a piece of lime because it is "so expensive". Then only cheese for steak was Swiss when menu says Roquefort, (there was Roquefort) then he said no credit cards accepted. Walked back to hotel for pesos... I confronted Jose about this and he changed story that swipe Machine not working. These are two large restos with one machine? He was just determined to give us a hard time. Our only experience outside BA with arrogant surly service. Avoid!

“Steak way over-salted”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

There are two of these restaurants, diagonally across from each other. The one at the sports stadium seems to open a little earlier than its sister restaurant, so that was the one I went to.

Had the picana, which was big and juicy (as ordered). Unfortunately, it was ruined by too much salt in the seasoning, so much that I could only get through three quarters of it.

Service was reasonable, as were the prices.
