Located next to "Teatro de los Insurgentes" (an emblematic spot in Mexico City), offers Argentinean food from steak to dessert (alfajores). Nice environment and good service.

The food was really amazing, the steaks are delicious. Went there twice, but the service was terrible both times. After ordered the drinks they said they only have steak nothing else from the menu.
