Expected more from this restaurant after reading positive TA reviews. We were very disappointed in the quality and flavor of our steaks. A good steak being the staple of Argentinia. The atmosphere is cold, and very brightly lit ...... not the feel most are looking for on a couples evening out. Reservation at 730, we shared the restaurant with only... More

The meal was excellent. I had T-bone steak and couldn't fault it. Fabulous mashed potatoes and very good mushrooms in cream and blue cheese sauce. We were too full for pudding but the owner brought us each a portion of grapefruit sorbet which was made from grapefruit for the tree beneath which we were sitting. She also gave us dates... More

Everything on the menu was fantastic - when I say everything I mean it. Our large group ordered all of the different cheese plates and empanadas selections, salads, almost all of the beef options, the salmon, and the halibut. All the food was incredible. The staff was outstanding and even treated us to a dessert made from oranges in the... More

The food is extraordinary and the staff friendly. Great atmosphere. Steaks are some of best we have had. Dont miss the beef empanadas, beef tartare, or grilled provolone!

For our last night in San Miguel, my boyfriend and I debated if we should eat at a traditional Mexican restaurant, or seek out something else. We had passed by La Virundela earlier in the day, and judging by the beautiful courtyard and delicious looking menu, we decided to return. We're so glad we did. We had a memorable evening... More

Loved the Salmon and the salad (oh so fresh!). The atmosphere was like a quite oasis in a courtyard. Great service! I can't stress that enough!!! The staff was endearing. Loved it!

We had our best dinner in San Miguel in the pretty courtyard of this restaurant. The empanadas for starters were amazing. I had the Halibut with couscous prepared with fresh ginger root. Delicious. They have a great looking menu for meat lovers, too. The owner and wait staff were so friendly and attentive.

A excellent place to enjoy Uruguayan beef with style and away from the bustle of downtown. A very homely, very quit restaurant. If you're a meat lover this restaurant is highly recommended. There are also options in chicken and pasta.

Researched the top three Argentinian restaurants in SMA via Internet and decided to try this one. Staff is very friendly and helpful and tries hard to please but the results weren't there. Very unimaginative furnishings and decorations feel almost cafeteria-like. My butcher steak, although tasty, was on the tough side. My wife tried the rib-eye which was very thin and... More
