Thought it was good

I didn't understand the reviews of unauthentic and cheating. I've eaten at Argentinian restaurants quite often I found the taste of the food authentic and meat was cooked to my liking and the service was quite good. On the downside I would say that it is overpriced. But it's a great place to get... read more

The food is great and the service as well. I've been here on 3 occasions (with small children twice) and it has always been a positive experience. My only complaint is that there are not enough tables for parties of 6 or more. We stopped in with 7 people and there were loads of empty tables, but the only one... More

Loved it. Going down into the cellar, welcoming staff the decor and the whole ambience. We have had dinner there twice now and both times have been exceptional. On the first occasion the was a guy with a guitar singing. Just the right volume for the place and it filled what was left of the vaulted ceilings with even more... More

Credit Card Skimmers. Beware!! in association with a place in Vilnius called "Havana Social Club" your credit card will be skimmed here, and later used by the waitresses in the other bar Bad service. It s not the first time that they have this kind of problems

Having spent lots of time in Argentina I was intrigued to find an Argentine restaurant in Vilnius, completely by chance, and decided to give it a try. My first advice is to avoid the provoleta -- it is NOT provolone, but grilled Lithuanian farmers' cheese -- completely different.

The meat (bife de lomo) was requested rare but it come very well done,the meat was not at all argentinian, the demanded wine bottle was exchanged with on with double price. At the end we payed 96€ for a bottle of wine and two steacks, the most expensive argentinian restaurant in Europe Noising guitar player and singer
