Nice environment and food

Even if the area looks quite poor, the restaurant has a very nice and warm decoration. The food quality is very good and the menu is very rich of argentinian tastes. Very important that there is good ventilation so your clothes are not getting smoked. Prices are about 30-50€ per person, including... read more

Service 'with a smile' and great steak - what more could one ask for? Although relatively 'expensive', the environment and food deserves 'extra'. Be aware however - portions are fairly large so there is no need to order too much!!

Top quality products, large servings, and fantastic service. Very nice layout and atmosphere. Great wine list. You might even see Javier Zanetti (owner) from time to time...

I really enjoyed this dinner, the tenderloin was perfectly cooked and served on hot stone. Also good the side dishes. Very careful service. The restaurant is not so big so it's better to book a table. Charming atmosphere that made it also good for a couple dinner. A little bit expansive but it worths. Highly suggested

Expensive for the quality they offer. I took a stake, it was really mediocre. The waitors are not organized and are rude. There are better Argentinian restaurants in Milna.

Perfect restaurant for those who loves meat. However service was not up to my expectations and prices are high.

I was very curious to go to this restaurant, as I was told that the meat was fantastic and the ambiance very modern. I cam out slightly disappointed; the meat was good, but I had much much better - nothing to write home about. Service was quite attentive, actually; I came in rather late as I was traveling and I...

This is a low level pretentious restaurant that I was told had some "celebrities" behind it. Super modern furnishing is there to show how trendy the place is. Check out the usual ever so frequent uncomfortable chairs or the washroom's ridiculous wash basins). With a few exceptions from what I have seen of other restaurants that had a celbrity invest...
