Would recommend the steaks etc as its a first class dining experience even though the ambiance reminded me more of a fishing lodge then a top place to dine. No matter the food was great and I enjoyed my steak

If you like rare meat and overpriced dishes, then go here. I like my meat cooked a little more than rare, but every time I have been here the meat has been served very undercooked. As an Argentine meathouse, I always expect more and I'm always disappointed. Opposite of the meat, the flan options are over-baked and hardly resemble the... More

Great place, great service. Meat is cook to perfection, fresh vegetables, good accommodation. Wish they have a better wine list, is very basic. But overall is a great place to visit.

I have tried three locations giving this restaurant a chance, but none of my visits were pleasant basically because of the poor food quality and erratic service. I tried expensive cuts that were overcooked and tough meat, medium cuts without flavor, and even choripan (basic typical sausage sandwich) which I did not eat after a couple of bites. It was...

This is a typical churrasco style restaurant. You will mainly find a lot of meat cooked various grilled styles. They offer some salad and sandwich entrees but that's not really what customers go for. The service was incredible and we were offered various substitution of the veggies and baked potato that came with our meal (without us even asking). We... More

I was really impressed with the quality of the tenderloin I had at this restaurant! I had the six ounce beef tenderloin with potato and vegetables. I love that they bring the broth as soon as you sit down, followed by the salad, and then the main course. The broth and the salad come with the main course at no... More
