If you like meat go here. It's a lot of fun watching the chef cook up your steak on the large outdoor grill. And the chimmicuri is fantastic. One piece of advice. If you find yourself at Las Piedras, try and grab a seat as far as possible from the grill, or you might find yourself getting a little bit... More

The chicken and home-made chimichurri sauce was to-die-for. Also, the "water smoothies" or whatever weird name they gave them, were delicious fruity beverages and very refreshing. Don't get the steak. The ribs looked good but I didn't try them.

How have I gone so long without chimichurri in my life? I ordered the casado with pollo and was very happy with it. Beautiful restaurant.

Great food! Cool atmosphere. A definite while in Mal Pais or Santa Teresa. They had great vegetarian options too. My husband loved the roasted chicken.

Las Piedras serves a range of Argentine and local dishes, with a heavy amount of red meat options. It's a good option for a casual meal, but the food did not blow us away. The steaks were flavorful but a tad tough and chewy, and the burgers were average. Portions were large, and all in all it was still a... More

While looking at the huge grill and reading the menu you really just want to order everything! Maybe you should. All good
