my wife and I ate here once while on vacation. although everything was good, I thought it was over priced. my wife had either chicken or fish tacos and I had the steak. the server didn't speak or talk much, it was hard to get refills but the drinks were very good. they cook on a open wood pit and...

We try to hit this little bistro on the first night in town. It is a really, really good wood fire grill. Everything (including the baked potatoes, tortillas, and bread) is cooked on the open grill. Steaks, veggies, chimichurri, guac, is all REALLY GOOD.

The lobster was awesome, and I never thought a baked potato could be anything special, but with the "crema" (sour cream) they use, it was off the charts. We just ran into this place on the street (isn't that when you find the best ones?), and we decided to try it. So glad we did, will definitely be coming back.

We heard good reviews and felt like spoiling ourselves with a nice meal. I ordered the rib eye and my wife ordered the salmon steak. It took a long while to get our food because they started doing delivery orders in between. When the food finally arrived it was dry and cold. We complained and they put the meat back... More

We ate there twice during our stay, the meat is exceptional! Had "vacio Argentino" both times. The restaurant is very small and intimate, a great romantic restaurant. Service is good, wine list is rather limited. Maybe my only negative comments would be that the sides with the meat are rather limited albeit delicious. The meat is served with grilled vegetables....

We stopped in for a grilled burger recommended by our dive master and we were quite pleased by the quality and value. Cute little corner for an afternoon drink as well.

One night Steak and another night the best burger I have ever had. The charcoal roasted onions mushrooms and peppers as a side was delicious. We ate out on the Calle 6 and it was fun and comfortable. This is just one block from the water front. I will be back.

Unfortunately, we found this place with only two nights left. We would have been here every night. We had five people, three people got the Alfredo pasta with lobster or shrimp in it. (Alfredo was not on the menu, but he made it anyway, and it is way better than olive garden). Two people ordered steak and lobster and the... More

There was 14 of us. We have been here several times over the years. You will not find a better steak on the island, also you should try a lobster tail. Great staff and food.
