Rump Steak is different gravy. Mixed Grill is stacked. Compliments to the chef all round. Highly Recommended.

The place is extremely nice and cozy and the staff is friendly. The meat is perfect.. The chicken skewers and the parrillada mixta were great and both very tender. The dessert were yummy and we really enjoyed everything!

Truly the most delicious steak I've had in years!! Not pretentious or over stated; just exceptional food at a price that's worth it. A true must for all carnivores.
