Description: One of the most innovative restaurants in the business area of Madrid, this restaurant resounds with the city atmosphere, bringing together a mix of cold materials and warm lighting. This is a real oasis in the heart of the business district where you can enjoy fantastic classics of traditional Argentinean cuisine from the grill of the skilled chefs. You can see some truly striking decorative elements such as the central corridor's forest of bamboo made of steel. Towards the end, a glass terrace presents you with spectacular views of the Picasso Tower and Azca Gardens.

Arriving at 9.45pm, we were shown to a table in a completely empty restaurant. Having misinterpreted Trip Advisor reviews we thought we were in for an empanadas experience, alas there was only one on the menu, which in fairness was delicious. Main courses arrived, my Argentinian steak, her chargrilled chicken, and the restaurant was still completely empty. Her chicken was... More

We were referred to this restaurant by the front desk at our hotel. We were not disappointed! We had arrived in Madrid that afternoon and didn't realize how late it was until we left the restaurant. The staff didn't try to rush us at all. The food was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Booked a christmas dinner for around 35 associates in December 2013. We had booked the table for 21:30, but the last few of us did not arrive until 22:15 and the restaurant's flexibility in response to this was highly appreciated. The service was discrete, efficient and professional, yet managed to offer a personal touch. Even though we were slightly louder... More

Six of us ate there and our meals varied tremendously. Two had perfect meat and said the beef generally was superb - one order for well done had to go back twice and the salad and fries were not changed but left swimming in the the same juices/ blood - not so good- nor the pasta. I guess you just... More

My mom and I wanted to have a nice dinner before leaving Spain and this was recommended to us by the owner of the B&B where we stayed. We walked over at 7:30 pm to find that it opened at 8:30 pm. It was totally worth the wait. We had an amazing bottle of wine, some of the best steak... More

We wandered into this restaurant and were able to get a table downstairs. It was not disappointing. The steak was of the finest quality as was the wine and all the entrees. We had a great night. We had a 3 course meal that came with the wine inclusive and some options of food to suit individual preferences. The ambiance... More

Decent restaurant with a central location. There is an English menu should you need it and the food was much better than I expected, particularly the starters which are designed to share. Good steak too.

Went for a early dinner for Madrid standards. Waiters are professional, but not really friendly. I choose the Tira de Asado from Angus beef after the waiter reassured me the 400 gr are with bones. I asked rare, but he recommends me a punto ( medium rare) because of the bone. Was a very good recommendation indeed. The Steak is... More

This is an Argentinian steak chain of restaurants. They have various cuts of Argentinian beef on offer. The service is good and its well worth a visit.
