I keep thinking about the meal we had here! The owners are so friendly and welcoming. If nothing else, get a bunch of empanadas, wine and dessert (though everything we tried was amazing!) You won't regret it! My only wish is that they were open on Mondays and Tuesdays so we could enjoy another meal here! We cannot say enough... More

I've read reviews where people have written that "this is the best steak I've eaten in my life" and I scoffed. But damn, this is really the best freakin steak I've eaten in my life and I've eaten too much steak in Argentina at this point. I still salivate thinking about it. Thin charred crust on the outside and the... More

This should be the number one restaurant in Bariloche! We were fortunate enough to be staying just over the road - and to get a table, but it is everything a restaurant should be. Our hosts were just brilliant and have a great concept. Excellent ingredients cooked to perfection in a very friendly and cosy atmosphere. We went on Sunday... More

Empanadas, ribeye steaks, and wine to die for. A salad that was adorned in sliced avocados was the perfect compliment to the steak. Decidedly one of the best dining experiences that I have ever had.

A real gem of a place. Very cozy and amazing that just the two people run the place. A simple but delicious menu. The mushroom bruschetta was very good. Good steaks too, though a slightly different style to those we'd tried elsewhere (more 'european' rather than 'parilla' but still very tasty). Book ahead as not many tables.

Do yourself a favour and go there! we ordered all entrees : best empanadas ever, irresistable grilled cheese, nice mushrum bruskata and refreshing salad as well. Ribeye stake was good. But at the bottom line: the nice decorated place, the nice table wine, the friendly service and the great food make it a wonderful place to dine

Such a cute place with AMAZING food! This is a really small, family run place with a (smartly) very limited menu that is cooked to perfection! One of the men in our group was unable to come at the last minute due to illness so "two wives and a husband" shared three appetizers, one meat and a dessert. Of course,... More

This is one of those restaurants that have a very limited menu to chose from, but anything you order is Amazing! I personally recommend the Rib-Eye steak! The atmosphere is super cozy and romantic! Husband and wife run the place. Yes! Only, the two! However they do a great job! Super friendly, super romantic and cozy, super delicious and super... More

The ambiance, the food, the service and the price were fantastic! Mouth watering steaks, the grilled provoleta to die for, the wine fabulous and the flan was out of this world! My daughter and her boyfriend were living in Bariloche for a while and took us there for dinner and we loved it so much we had to go back... More
