Recommended on TripAdvisor and also by our hotel, we went fairly early as we were hungry. The restaurant opens at 7:30pm which is very early by Argentinian standards so the place was pretty empty when we arrived. Our server was very happy to advise us and to recommend wine and food. We decided to go for meat (again!).....Bife de Chorizo... More

The food was delicious -- both my husband's steak and my chicken, along with the salad and French fries. But besides the food, the service was very professional! We went at 8:00pm for dinner and the place was almost empty. Most diners started pouring in at 9:00pm. So choose to eat late if you want a crowded place, or before 8:00... More

Good steak restaurant. Nice change vs the. Many tourist places with bad quality. Friendly waiters and foot quality meat.

We don't normally treat ourselves to steak and wine nights so this was a must while in town. We ordered way too much food, a steak each, salad and sweet potato fries to share, plus a bottle of Malbec. We snacked on the bread before hand as well so couldn't finish it all as the steak was massive. All of... More

We visited this restaurant in December in the beginning of our trip through South America and can honestly say it was the best steak we ate on our holiday! It was so perfectly cooked and sides were incredible too. We ate at a lot of pricier restaurants in Buenos Aires and throughout and this topped them hands down! If you... More

Another popular parrilla for good reason, a real international mix of clients and locals alike, warmly welcomed, smart waiters, great steak and a very good selection of local Malbec wines, well worth a visit.

A very nice restaurant with fantastic service. The food is excellent, beautiful steaks and stunning salads. The best I've eaten here so far. The restaurant filled us while we were there and it is clearly a popular place.
