The meat mixed combo was a nice selection of sausages, chops and steak (the steak actually being very good and tender!) with some sides as a kicker. Really good to share between two at $20 if you're meat lovers.

This is the place to be for meat lovers! The Argentinian chef still knows how to lite up his "parilla" (Argentinian bbq). I've been in Argentina for 10 weeks and had a lot of meat but this is definitely one of my top 3 meat places! Go for lomo!!!

Please do not mind reviews concerning the "anti-semic" etc messages towards this place. I think that every restauraunt has it right to refuse who ever they want. I am also 100% sure that if any Israelian group/person would came here for a meal, they would not refuse to serve them. Gaza and palestine is politics, we came for the meat!... More

The food here is really good. The meat is tasty and the service very good. Unfortunately I can't recommend the place because of their outspoken and inappropriate political views.

Hungry at lunchtime, and not willing to venture far from the hotel due to Carnaval shenanigans, we found Quilombo just up the street. It seemed inviting, so we decided to give it a try. We were greeted and seated right away and once we got a hang of the -er- ´´ innovative´ menus, ordered some drinks and meals. The drinks... More

Don't go to that restaurant! The owners are racist, they hanged a sign in their entrance: "Israeli's are not alloud''. It reminds signs that were maid in Germany in the 1930s.

First off, the food in this place is fair for an Argentinian style restaurant. The $20, two-person special is a good deal and you do get a generous portion of each kind of meat and side items. However, we had to flag down service three times and the waitress "assumed" that the $60 given for the $41 bill included her... More

Raw chicken, couldn´t believe it... if you don´t want to get sick, i´d give this place a wide berth. I´m not a picky eater, but when i´m presented with raw chicken, i have a problem with that.

went to the restaurant and there was a sign at the entrance that Jewish people can't enter. JUST LIKE NAZI GERMANY. So I didn't enter.

This place is owned and operated by anti- Semites. There is a sign on the door saying no Jews or Israelis allowed in Anyone supporting this place is supporting racism, hatred and nazi lovers
