We had an excellent Chateau Briand steak here. Service was fantastic, location well decorated and suitable, not too loud music inside. I can highly recommend this place.

Meat People is a great restaurant, with a cheesy sauce name... Which is also what I had with fillet steak and roasted cauliflower. Good strong Argentine wine and blue cheese. Really good. Definitely going back.
