When you visit Rosario, you must go for lunch or dinner to this grill. An emblematic spot in a corner in front of the Park and the Paranà River.

A really great meal. Warning that portion sizes are large. I had a Caesar salad , that feed 3 people. We each ordered an entree (beef steak, thin pork, and lasagna. It could have fed 6 people. All were very good. The pork and beef...More

A must go if you are in rosario. The food is not superb but the asado is consistently good. Traditional waiters. Could be noisy when full

Very nice restaurant close to Paraná river. There can enjoy all local food like chorizo,morciya, and so good meats. One of the best is called Bife de Chorizo. Also very good wines. Hope you will enjoy Rosario

The meat here is tender and deliciously cooked the traditional gaucho way. The service is great and the prices are reasonable. Great location near the river. Try all of the exotic Argentinian cuts, venture out of your comfort zone and you won't be disappointed.

My husband and I had dinner there. We tried the warm sweetbread and mushroom salad and found it tasty, though the greens should have been arugula (rocket) rather than plain lettuce. My husband tried their fettucini with cream and they were very good. The setting...More
