The steaks were both really great and exactly as we ordered them. The waiter was really friendly and the service was fast. We would come back any time we are in mainz.

I was in the mood for a steak and most of the Argentinean steak places I've been around the world have been great. This is no exception. It is a popular place but they had outside seating available so I got a table right away....More

Tasty steak for a quite reasonable price. Very good atmosphere to go with your couple. Great place to eat meat without many choices besides steaks!
