Great Food Cheap

The food was just awesome as was the service. The flank steak was the best we ever had and a larger portion that can be share by 2. The empanadas we so tasty. Would recommend and would go back in a heartbeat.

Crowded little churrascaria off the main square that's definitely worth a stop. Yes, service was a bit relaxed, but not rude or unfriendly by any means. Empanadas and steaks were very good (I'd go back for the empanadas alone). Drinks are cheap, the outside atmosphere is nice, and it's a nice break from resort food for sure. Come hungry and... More

We went based on reviews. The place isn't really friendly and it's over priced. I got an empanadas and my husband got the flank steak. My food came out super fast, but my husbands took a half hour. I couldn't wait for him to eat otherwise my food would be cold. So we essentially ate separately. Which is horrible when... More

I went here for dinner with two other girls. The waitress could not keep up and we had to wait forever for someone to offer us more drinks. The steak was just o.k.

If you're looking for some of the most tender well cooked beef then you've found the place. I got the flank steak and I was a bit surprised at he size of this meat. In the U.S. Flank steak comes thin, here it's this super thick piece of meat. The cook is excellent and it just melts in your mouth.... More

We ate at this restaurant twice because the empanadas and parilla were fantastic. The price was excellent. People were waiting for an hour to get a table so make sure you get a reservation. The staff was running around like crazy. You have to be patient but the food makes up for the poor service.

You can smell meat cooking on the wood fired grill from the plaza down town. Amazing meats and pizzas. The pizzas were generous and all ingredients very fresh, locally sourced. The meats were cooked to perfection. Interesting sauces for dipping. One drawback is the restaurant is quite small and some of the outdoor tables are actually in the street. Traffic... More
