Food was delicious. Raviolis and pasta where extremely well cooked. House bread with several dips was very good. Our waitress was out of this world, very friendly, respectful and very kind. Prices were reasonable, nice selection of wine for the wine lover. It is very hide in a corner of Chipichape Mall, in a second floor near the hotel. Very private and comfy place. It can be very romantic and you can see the chef/cooker when they make your food.

Marcela a Colombian that for some time lived in Argentina opened this restaurant years ago in Granada neighborhood. After a fire she move to Chipichape on a different kind of environment and magic happen she start selleing more that she can imagine. They have a full service restaurant as well as an outside service restaurant. Her husband Daniel helps her putting on their sound system the nicest music and musical videos that you can watch. Marcela is a personal friend and i recommended 100%

We came here because all of the stuff that interested us was closed at the moment and we wanted to check something out at the mall anyway. It seemed like something that could pay off despite the cheesy location. The interior has a lot of souvenirs from Argentina, seems touristy, but the chairs and tables are small, the music is too loud and it generally lacks ambiance.

We started out with some empanadas and a sushi roll. Oddly anything that had prawns in it was replaced with imitation crab. There was some shortage but come on, that's like saying we don't have filet mignon so we replaced it with hamburger helper. The roll we ended up getting had neither. It was surprisingly decent given the location, but I wouldn't come here for sushi just the same. The empanadas were OK, nothing like the moist, robust ones you'd actually find in Argentina on the street but nonetheless kind of tasty.

At the suggestion of the waitress we tried two cuts of imported beef from Argentina. We spoke at some length how about how we wanted them cooked. Both came out noticeably underdone and they were cooked unevenly also. My plate actually consisted of two different cuts, on that was very fatty and one that was flavorless. Though they were medium rare at most, both proved to be a little tough.

The juices we ordered were watery and the service, while very efficient, was unfeeling. If I go to a good restaurant, I always wind up over-eating and still get excited about the pastry. My girlfriend is tiny so if she likes a place at all, she will end up overdoing it. We both left here full but unsatisfied, and by the end of the meal we just wanted the check.

Of course this place is better than eating a lousy sandwich at Kokoriko, but it's five times the price. I don't mean to pan it roundly--it was OK-- but there was just nothing here that was appealing.

This is the best meat place in Cali. The different cuts and preparations are all very good. There is room to improve the side dish (a small salad). I recommend to taste the "Argentinian meat empanadas" as starter. The place is small and if you want to go on weekends, it is better to make a reservation.
