If I was a death-row inmate and was granted a final meal, I would ask for the medium-rare steak at Las Piedras with the ceviche as an appetizer.

The steak dinner was such a treat. Mouth watering good! We really enjoyed the laid back vibe and the AMAZING prices! The mashed potatoes were my favorite!

If you love steak and love to be pampered at a reasonable American price, in Playa Carmen, this is a must experience stop. I am a steak lover and truly can't say I've ever had better! My group had their chicken dinner for four. I had their Argintene steak, a memorable experience I won't soon forget. Whether it's chicken or... More

A great restaurant run by friendly Argentineans who serve up the best chicken in Costa Rica. Be sure to try the Chimichurri, it's the best.

i have visited the Santa Teresa/Mal Pais area four times, and Las Piedras is always one of my first stops. I love the casual atmosphere, friendly service, and the open grill. The steak with chimichurri and beef empanadas are two of my favorites. The steak comes with salad and creamy mashed potatoes. The steak is full of flavor, tender and... More

My husband and I ordered a "meat plate for two" which had steak, pork ribs, chicken, and sausages. We both ate so much and there was still some left over! I thought the food was delicious, especially the steak, even though I am not a huge meat eater. The empanadas were also very good, as was the homemade chimmichurri sauce.... More

Good food here, and the tourists love taking pictures of the chicken and beef roasted over the fire. The staff were very pleasant and attentive, price was fair.
