I came here with my girlfriend as we fancied a good steak and had seen a recommendation for this place in our lonely planet guide. We ordered the parrillada for two (basically a mixture of all their grilled meats) and a couple of drinks each - our bill was almost MXN 1000. The meat was distinctly average (I've honestly had...

We ate here twice. There was charming Latin entertainment both nights. It is a pricey meal if you have the beef (though very good); however, the pasta menu is very reasonably priced and delicious! The perfect part is the opening complimentary cup of beef broth with spicey onion and jalapeño!

My friends and I were looking for a descent steakhouse to eat at, as we were done with tacos. We had passed this restaurant a few times during our stay and decided to give it a try. Although it say's argentinean, don't get your hopes up. Heck I don't even know what qualifies as Argentinean. I'm from Texas and know... More

So our taxi driver recommend this streak house and we were plesantly suprised. Very generous portion for the price. The filet was excellent. On the main drag and safe area. Would go back...paid around 150 for four people to eat with a bottle of wine, apps, filets, and dessert!! Wish we had a place like this in the states!!

My wife and I had an enjoyable Italian dinner. We both had their creamy pasta carbonera. They make their own pasta from scratch, which accounts for the great quality. This is an upscale establishment, so please leave your ball cap or cutoffs at home. The service was excellent. We even got some things we didn't order. Its only money, right?... More

This is a lovely restaurant with a lovely outdoor view of the street and the ocean. The service was great! We had the pasta and it was delicious. There was a lovely three piece string ensemble playing that were really good. I would highly recommend this place for a nice quiet dinner out. Price was very reasonable.

it was not argentinian meat or dishes for that matter. The waiter did not listen to our order. We asked for a parillada mista with oven backed potatoes, no chicken and rare. Instead we ended up with well cooked meat, french fries and chicken. We decided to not leale any tip.

I wanted to take my wife to a nice steak restaurant in honor of our anniversary since I originally proposed at a steak restaurant. This one reportedly had good Argentinian beef. Unfortunately, the marketing didn’t live up to reality. In addition, there was a seating fee, which seemed unnecessary. If you are looking for steak, you might try somewhere else.

It truly is a shame what happened to this once great restaurant. My wife and I were there in February and we both ordered Rib Eye Steaks. In the past, their steaks were a good 1/2 inch thick and a good size. This time they were barely 1/4 inch thick, small and about $38 USD each. The side portions that... More
