I have been reading the reviews and also, two friends recommended but we are not impressed. The only way for me to really rate is to compare locally 1. Service is less professional and less friendly than other restaurants we have been at. - waiters do not pour water, wine nor do they put pepper on rather drop the pepper/wine/water... More

Wonderful place to people watch and the best meat I've had in Argentina served by smart waiters with a sense of humor. Even the bife de limo (tenderloin) was good and more flavorful than what we get in USA. Personally I prefer the bife de chorizo, though several Argentines near us were getting what looked like a mixed platter with... More

All I can say is 'wow'. Food was outstanding, and service was fun. Be ready to leave full and satisfied. Highly recommend. There are three locations we went to the one Just outside of town. I hear they are all just as good.

You eat with the locals, get to watch all the food being prepared, and try different BBQ dishes. Portions are huge so best to go with at least 4 people.

This is a local restaurant with great meats. We ordered one steak and split it for the 2 of us. It was more than enough. Be prepared to wait as this is a popular place.

If you're looking for a great steak this is a high spot in Bariloche. Service was good and good value for the quantity of food and portion size.

We got early so did not have to wait. Ordered a ribeye and a chinchulines(small intestine), Steak was huge enough to share with my husband, very juicy perfect amount of seasonings but intestine was a disappointment. It was dry and shrink to your pinky size, must have been near grill too long or precooked it. Service was OK not superb... More

We came to this restaurant following friends recommendations and were not disappointed. The meat quality is good(don't order wine, the good wine is expensive and the simple one does meet the standarts).You have to stay in line at the restorant as they do not allow to book tables by the phone. The restorant is opened at 20:00 hrs and at... More

We loved this place - it was one of the steak ones, not the Italian. We arrived soon after 8 and were almost the only people there. By 9 it was nearly full. So early does not mean British early! Order half portions and these are huge! Easily enough for 2. The salad was huge, the chips were enormous, the... More

We had a steak, chips and salad to share (....and of course a bottle of Malbec). It was our best meal so far in Argentina. The steak was fabulous, there was (literally) a mountain of thin French fries, and a great salad. The steak was cooked to perfection and melted in the mouth! Exquisito!
