What I have noticed is that in South America waiters mostly are absolutely not nice, not dedicated to the service, nor to give you a great experience. But this place has been the worst. I tried to give my order and the waiter offered king...More

The restaurant is amazing place. The food is delicious and the people are very friendly and kind. Very unique decor. A good place to go alone or with friends. The food is very good.

Horrible food, I got weird and bad taste pancakes instead of pasta I expected... and the pizza was also awful... Simply the worst meal we had in all Argentina!

Probably ok for a drink but the food is truly truly grim. My first dish was inedible- unlike me just not able to eat it. The serving dish was worse.i could not believe it possible. All accompanied by grumpy inattentive staff, a whopping service charge...More
