My husband and I eat here several times a week. I love the empanadas. I have never had a bad meal there. The staff is very polite. We also come here a lot because they allow us to use an outside table and bring our dog.

Like everywhere I was in Playa there is no place to get out of the heat! Whats up with that? Anyway, had the recommended steak with a couple of beers for $25 or so. Good flavor, the fries and salad were also good.

This restaurant was recommended to our group for a great steak. They were able to seat our group of sixteen at two tables quickly. The food was excellent. The pizzas, the salads, the steaks and the churassco chicken was amazing. I would return to this restaurant in a second and I highly recommend it to others while in Playa Del... More

We love this place. We have been coming here for years. The food is authentic Argentino. Great choripan starter with an enslada mixta followed by assado de tierra con papa fritas. They also do a great pancake con dulce de leche.

We had a party of 4 adults and one kid. I'll get to the best part first which were the steaks that the four adults loved: Flank Steak (Vacio), Short Rib (Asado de Tira), and Arrachera (Mexican cut). Each one of these was cooked very well and had excellent flavor. Also great were the prices when compare to steak prices... More
