Good food

Great food. These guys know what they are doing with a steak. The potato was also done to perfection. I'll be back whenever I'm in Leon.

I have to say that the 22 oz = 630 gramm Filet on the Grill was one of my lifes best Filet I have ever eaten. Outside slightly charcoal and crispy, inside perfect "a punto". For 380 Mexican Pesos ~ 20€ it was Excellent Value for Money! My colleagues had also all great dishes and therefore we visited again the... More

The best steakhouse in this region. Meat from Argentina you can have there. From the menu, my best was the bife de chorizo and the flavor was terrific with some papas fritas.

One of the best places in the city to have a great argentinian meal, mostly if you like meat. The attention is good and from appetizers (carpacho, empanadas or viceras) to the main dish (asado de tira, sirloin or bife de chorizo) are simply great.

In town on business about every six months and usually eat here once each trip. Great steaks with attentive service. Highlight of my most recent visit was an associate ordering a banana flambé for dessert. Quite a spectacle and quite tasty.

By far one of the best steak I've ever had. Even better than the original out of Puebla. Captain Pedro and the whole team do an excellent job providing amazing service. Flavor is excellent!

The food is not bad but the last time I was there the credit card of my wife was duplicated. They made charges for more than USD30K in jewelry in Austria. Thank god AMEX notice this odd behavior. Also the service is lacking

Went for dinner at 7:30 with a reservation made on the restaurants website. Restaurant is nicely configured with good table spacing. We chose our own table as customer dining times are later & the restaurant was not busy. Immediately offered a selection of tequilas and shown the beef selection options. The staff were hovering and looking for us to order... More
