This restaurant has elegance and quality from the moment you walk through the door. The staff is pleasant and attentive, but the best of all, is a wonderful steaks and side dishes served.

Ordered a bife de chorizo. The first one I was served was so salty I could not eat it. Replaced to problem but under cooked. Again fixed no problem but but by then chips were cold. Good wine Norton Malbec. Meat was very good. Service average and atmosphere very good.

Had a very pleasant dinner. The meat cuts were correct for an Argentine stake and it was cooked as ordered. The wine selection was quite decent and well priced. The staff pleasant, even too obviously anxious to close out the evening, but that was just a detail.

Not happy with the service provided. Even after leaving, I requested an invoice (factura) and they said they couldnt generate it because the service was 10 days old. I told them we requested it since the day we were there and they never sent it. I asked to speak to management, turns out I was speaking to them. I would... More

Lovely quaint restaurant in a tucked-away corner. Food is very good with option to sit outside. Hidden gem. Would return again if time permits.
