Argentinean Grill at its best

The chef, Hilario prepared our meals of perfection. My husbands steak was grilled exactly the way he wanted it (rare - and most places don;t get it right). My lobster was perfect and our son had the faquitas, he said were very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Service was top notch... read more

This restaurant is right on the main street with pirate statue blocking the street. My family wanted to eat here because it was open late and looked clean. What a mistake... The empanadas were frozen. The salads were ordinary. The grilled fish was small and bland. The price was expensive. Skip it.

We watched the chef grill up our food in a big outdoor woodfired oven. I had chorizo which was delicious and was served with a "baked potato" but which was really a boiled yellow potato. It was fresh (if you've never had a potato right out of the ground, you should) and had a surprising curry sauce. An nice-sized salad... More

Bad wine (very bad), barely there service, bored to tears staff. Blech. A lot of Americans hang out there so it is quite touristic. If that is your scene, El Pirata is the place for you.

We wanted to dine were the locals do, but we got there way to late. We arrived about 6:30 and could barely find a table. It is a nice beachside restaurant, but we didn't realize they were closing soon. We ordered the guacamole, garlic shrimp and Pescado de diablo. The shrimp was good, but my fish was way overcooked and... More

It's fun to watch your meal grilled in the grill by the entrance. The food is always great here. I think this was our 3rd year eating here.

Second time here. Fish tacos were better last year, but still good. Excellent, fast, friendly and attentive service. Will eat here again.

This restaurant was well...only so-so. We had a big group so we had the opportunity to try quite a few dishes. I can say this, the waiter that spoke quite a few languages was great! Unfortunately the food was not very impressive. One of our party got the hamburger and the patty was dry and tough. The pasta was passable.... More
