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.

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

Amazing atmosphere has been created when we have visited this place for a third time in 3 years :) We were 13 friends and all were extremely happy to spend a whole evening there :) Kestas (Kiesha) was our star :D

I came here to eat a god steak after one week of lithuanian food. The place is nice and centrical. The service was o.k., the Live Music was nice, too. The restaurant is not argentinian at all, the decoration of the food was o.k., but the meat was really diapointing.

It is a relatively expensive restaurant . Ordered their best steak, but it was just "ok (-)" It is not the fine meat you get at the USA. What I did like is the Live Music , a nice Argentinian playing guitar. It is in the basement of a Atrium Hotel .
