Satisfying your inner carnivore

Very relaxed atmosphere and small restaurant. As expected, grilled meats were the main attractions on the menu. They offered a side dish of grilled veggies even though it wasn't on the menu - very nice gesture and very delicious to go with the streaks and carizos.

This place is an excellent option for argentinians that are far away from home. I eat a lot of times this year there. The best option is the "Bife de chorizo" that is an high recommendable option to try real argentinian food. The waiters are very friendly and give you an excellent attention and recommends what to ear or drink.... More

The key word is "don't". And if you do, the purée or spinach are not a part of your protein, only good thing to say is that it was empty. Poor plating as you can appreciate in the photos.

This place was all hype, and very little on substance, service or cost. Both of us went there looking for a tasty steak, but ended up with a fatty approximation of one. The meat was cold, not cooked correctly and tastless. The wine was the only decent thing, but when the meal came up to about 60 USD for us... More

Nothing very argentinian about this restaurant that services mediocre food at Polanco prices. Both partner and I had separate but equally mediocre main dishes.

If you like super salty meat, cold sides and blaring Ricky Martin music - this might be the place for you. During the last six months I have eaten at this place several times and at first really enjoyed it, however, the food quality has gone downhill significantly since around September 2014. The prices are high for what you get... More

This restaurant is decent Argentinian food, which I describe as a mix of steaks and Italian standards. I had read several great reviews about it and was eager to try it. I had a steak, others in our party had Italian food. It was good, but not great. Service was average as well. Prices for the food seemed a bit... More

The meat was good and the chocolate mousse was tasty. The service was lacking a bit but they just opened a week earlier so I don't think they have their groove yet. The location is nice and the prices were reasonable.

This isnt the type of place you'd visit if you are on vacation here in MEX. However if you are living here or sticking around for a while then this a must! Its a down to earth argentinean place. Unlike your other places, this place has italio-argentinean dishes. Pasta, Breaded Meat, etc. However, the beef is good too. This place... More
