Good choice of meats, either national or uruguayan or argentinean meats. Welldone or medium are excellent. good service eventhough is rather expensive.

I went with a group of 8. Three of us had meat that was just tough. I had filet mignon that took me five minutes to chew the first bite. I sent it back and the second was better, but not what you'd expect for $20 in San Fransisco, Ca let alone in Quito where lunch is $2.00.

Elegant restaurant in a good neighbourhood. The argentinian beef was fabulous and the service excellent. We just got what we wanted. The wine was tasteful. But we had to take a bottle, because they didn't had an interesting choice in glasses or half bottle. In most restaurants in Quito they have only Cabernet Sauvignon. What a pity!

It is primarily a steakhouse, quality and care is very appropriate, to rescue chichulines and the morcilla, which have a very good term and are delicious, perhaps criticizing the fact that the cuts are called Argentinos, which has a price of about 10 to 15 dollars high, and it do not get in traditional meats. The selection of wines is... More

After a flight from Miami, we needed late evening reservations... San Telmo filled the bill and was one of the only finer dining spots open as it was a holiday. We enjoyed an Argentine Rib Eye that was nicely prepared but pricey... A round of drinks and a nice Argentine wine took us over the $100.00 mark. This is a... More

It wasn't the best steakhouse we have ever eaten at, but it was pretty good. The price is a little higher for Ecuador, but compared to the US it is very good. The chicken caesar starter was very good.The service and the atmosphere were great. It made for a nice little date night while we were out on the town.

International food in a traditional place, for business and more formal meals. More expansive than other restaurants in Quito. Good service.

I had my last dinner there before giving birth the next day. It was nice, good food, a little bit unconfortable for pregnant women or people with any physical disability.
