First impressions of this restaurant where good, we were quickly seated, and then left. No menus no offer of drinks other people seated and them served before us. We had to point out to the staff we were looking for a menu, their surly approach left something to be desired. When our order was finally taken drinks where forthcoming although... More

Ate here twice on our holiday end of September. So much meat in the mixed grill it would have done for both of us. Chips were the big disappointment I think proper chips not oven ones would be a lot better. On the second visit we had jacket potetoes which were a lot better.

Service was half-hearted as was the food. Uninterested waiter brought lukewarm drinks, no ice or lemon and no pouring in the glasses. Steaks were not tender and not at all cooked as requested. Pepper sauce tasted good though. Not a steakhouse to recommend.

Fabulous food and amazing service. They were friendly yet very professional. Juan Sanchez is the owner and he was excellent. Friendly, helpful and approachable. Emilio was are server and he was great too. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

My friend and I came for a steak meal on the last night of our holiday. We didn't wait very long for a table, but felt extremely 'packed in'. The service was fine and our food was fine, but I'm not sure it's worthy of the TA status IMO. My starter of spanish toast was burnt around the edges. The... More

Went here on our last night! Very busy so definitely recommend going earlier rather then later. Maybe because was so busy felt abit rushed, however It was honestly the best steak I have ever had. It was cooked to perfection. Glass of red wine was perfect also. Great food, great restaurant! Enjoy!

Went here when staying in lloret and I would recommend. It is authentically Argentinian with all Argentinian staff and all food made on site. We had a very very good steak. Price wasn't over the top but wasn't cheap either. On balance, worth it
