I loved this place and food they cook. That's one of the best meat grill I ever tried in my life. I adore morsissa, they prepare it so juicy and tasty, that I ordered 3 of them, special respect to meat- tasty and yummy. I think they charge reasonable prices, because they use really the best ingredients and do it... More

The food was ok, the fish was fried and not grilled... Too bad, but was still good. Good food with good price, restaurant is a bit old but nice atmosphere. The neighborhood is out of the main tourist route. If you are around looking for good price here's a place you can come, but nothing special about it.

Nothing particularly fancy about this place, but does a good job of serving up traditional Argentine cuts of meat in authentic surroundings. Deservedly popular with its mainly local clientele.

The overall quality of the food wasn't great. I ordered two types of meat cuts, one was supposedly better as it shouldn't have much fat. That wasn't the case. It tasted greasy which I thought could have been that the grill wasn't properly cleaned. The typical 'chorizo' was tasty and the Provolone cheese grilled wasn't properly heated so the cheese...

If you want a traditional Argentine neighbourhood restaurant with good meat, as well as all other local dishes, very friendly service, all at an honest price, this is the place to go. Unpretentious and very friendly. Had great meat, tasty, tender and well cooked. Finished it off with a top notch panqueque de manzana. Few places know how to prepare... More

We had a good experience at this traditional restaurant in San Isidro. The meat was good and those who chose something else were also not disappointed. The decor is engaging, made us feel like we were really in Argentina. Wine was good and not expensive. Overall, good value for the money.

All meats cooked simple "parrilla" style. Service is good and a very local (San Isidro) atmosphere. Avoid

Have been there on many occasions. Service always works, food never disappoints. Very consistent. It is an informal place, packed with neighborhood locals on weekends. Great value for money kind of place.

Friendly service, excellent traditional Argentine food, large portions, good wine... I really only have good things to say about this place. My wife had fish ... it came fried.. You may want to ask how the fish is prepared. I had barbecued kidneys and they were yummy. The salad was very fresh despite July (middle of the winter). Service was... More
