Not a good experience. Service was indifferent, ordered appetizer never appeared and food when it arrived was lukewarm. Lamb chop special was good but served without the accompanying chimichurri sauce. Price was ridiculously expensive for the quality.

Waitress forgot our water, forgot the appetizer and the main course was stone cold so we had to send it back to be heated. One couple shared an entree and the bill was still quite expensive. Banned.

Outstanding empanadas and chimichurri sauce! Would definitely recommend. The restaurant is unique and I would return at the earliest opportunity.

We are regulars. We love sitting outside and having a glass of good red wine with empanadas and their 'provoleta' melted provolone cheese with tomatoes on bread. Last night we stopped for dinner with good friends and asked for the parrillada to share, prawns in...More
