I was here last year with a group of colleagues for a business meeting, it is not cheap, so we were expecting a high quality food. Food was cold, orders were incorrect. We end up leaving and not at all impress. After that my boss never wanted to go back.

Food was good but expensive for the quality. You would expect more... Slow service, noisy ambient. Nice facility, good waitress disposition. It is good if you are close to the airport...

This is by far the best restaurant in town! Great venue, excellent service, and the food is delicious. They have a variety of choices based on a mix of local/international cuisine. Meat is always perfect and fish is never overcooked. Very good restaurant! You will not find a better one near Concepcion

I had grilled eel, chips and salad. Very nice it was too. The service was a bit snooty, but, if I ran a posh restaurant, I probably wouldn't want people who look like me in it either so I can't complain.

I travel to Concepcion several times a year and always make this restaurant a must. The steaks and seafood are excellent, but for me the best is the ceviches. I give this restaurant a strong reccomendation

Really good choice for dinner. Service was excellent and the food was the same. Ceviches were fresh as was the fish dish. Steak was really good and and the portion was big. Can't go wrong with this place.

One of the best steaks in Concepcion. Excellent service offers a variety of soups, salads, pastas, fish and obviously steaks. Angus, veal, lamb and Wagyu offer a nice menu of options, and a complete wine selection made lunch or dinner a great experience. Weather permitting an outdoor sitting area is available, a nice Horno de Barro is available upon request.... More
