This restaurant has a good reputation and is generally packed. They have a fine salad bar, which can be a meal in itself. If you order a main course, the salads are included.

This is a classic and authentic feast for the meat-lovers. The menu is simple but well priced for the dishes.

Excellent food. Great salad bar. Good wine. The best parrilla I had in Buenos Aires. The food is just great. We had mix of meats from the grill and it was the best meat we had from the grill during our entire stay in BA. The service was excellent although they didn't speak english.

I ordered the ojo de bife a punto and it was very good! The order came with salad bar; instead of piling everything I could onto a small plate, I served myself a small green salad that had blue cheese: it went very nice with the meat and the Don Nicanor Malbec we ordered. If in the San Isidro area,... More

We were 11 at the table. The reservation was only up to 1 o'clock .As soon as we arrived I realised why. The restaurante gets packed as from 1.30. The steaks, pamplonas and salads were tasty. There is a little playground that one can check from inside so children are protected and allow adults to eat "in peace" . The... More
