A convenient spot for grilled food options and exotic cocktails. If you are wanting a friendly laid back atmosphere to chillax be sure to check out this eatery.

Nothing special on this food, I won't return to this place. Mash potatoes and carrots are good for babies ;)

We were looking for a nice relaxing dinner out on a Saturday night. Called and was told that no reservations for three could be taken. Arrived to a jammed parking lot--so happy to valet! Walked in and hostess said 1.5 hr wait. We decided to walk around and shop. Returned to still wait. Food was inexpensive by local standards and... More

First, they have valet only parking because they're in a bad location. Granted it's only $5 but the valet guy was rude as hell so I parked my... More

Argentinian specialties so meats, chicken mostly prepared perfectly with salads and starch and grilled onions to accompany a dinner entre. Good wine list. Great service. You will enjoy!

Myself and my boyfriend ate here while on holidays in LA. We did not have starters but were provided with delicious homemade bread. My other half got the steak which was to die for and I got some form of spaghetti with sausage I can't remember what it was called but it was beautiful. The staff were all very friendly.... More

I grew up eating milanesas, but don't make them myself, so when I find an Argentine restaurant with milanesa on the menu, I check it out. The milanesa was pretty good, as were the fries and salad that came with it. My son enjoyed a beef empanada (which smelled delicious--I can't eat them anymore because of an onion-intolerance, or I...

The food I tasted was pretty good, but in truth I ordered a salad, so I don't feel very qualified to rate the food this time around. What I can rate is the service. We had a large party (10 people) and i understand how that can frazzle a server, but even so, our waitress was sub-par. Requests had to... More
