Delicious tenderloin. Really great chorizo sausages. Nice chimichurri. And crisp fresh fries. They have a massive fire in the middle of the place that all the meat is roasting over. And the cook looks like he is doing ballet. Two brothers from Argentina and their friends run the place and they do a great job! Thanks!

The steak, ribs and sauces were amazing. I loved the guy behind the grill he was so nice and fun to talk to. Very clean. Get the steak or ribs.

This was a cozy spot and the meats are fantastic. The smoothies with alcohol were also tasty - recommend the melon! The steak and ribs were delicious, as were the mashed potatoes. Bring cash, cause sometimes their credit card machine isn't working. We will probably be back soon :)

The food is good, I felt my chicken could have more flavor but still was very good! It is amazing how the staff works so hard in search hot spot! The place is a place to go in town but is very popular, so give yourself some time!

Great food, reasonable prices, good service. You walk into this restaurant and see the fire going with a "box-spring" as the grill. The chicken is so tender and the empanadas were really good. Our family has been coming here for 10+ years. This trip we enjoyed the food on three occasions. I highly recommend this restaurant. Fantastic Argentinian sauces !!

Chicken, Chicken, Chicken. This place does chicken like no where else. We found this spot over 5 years ago and continue to visit everytime we're in Mal Pais and usually several times on each visit. Just because I mention the chicken doesn't mean you should avoid the other food. We recently tried the Mixed Grill which was also unreal!

My boyfriend and I are here twice in our week long visit to Santa Teresa. The staff are really friendly and welcoming and the food is unreal. The tenderloin steak is one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten! The meat is cooked on a grill fire right in front of you. I'd also recommend the ceviche starter which was... More

I am a lover of all things beef and this was hands down the most delicious steak I've ever eaten. Owned by Argentinians (I think I need to go to Argentina!) it has a friendly, relaxed vibe. Outside dining, of course, with the requisite laid back dogs lying at the foot of the table hoping you'll share a bite with... More
