Waiter Kestas is a star there! :)

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 .

every year, this place becames more and more terrible. After a bad experience, in a visit to Lithuania, when in this restaurant, my credit card was skimmed (and used in another cave of cheaters called Havana Social Club, in Vilnius), I decided, that may be it could be something differnet today. Of course the staff members are not the same.... More

We really wanted a bit of a meat feast and chips. And that is what we got. Our waiter Andrej was brilliant and recommended some great things from the menu. The chimmichuri sauce especially. Tasty meat and lovely spiced wedges, washed down with some great beer. As well as this there was a live musician playin guitar who wasn't intrusive... More

If you want to have a simple straight forward meal. Just a good piece of meat and french fries, this is the place to be. Don't expect something special. Order a pint of beer and enjoy your meal.....
