This place is on my Must Visit List every time I visit Buenos Aires. I've been there quite a few times and still there is so many dishes to explore. The place is wildly popular with locals and for very good reasons. There is a huge menu and very professional service. To many good dishes to mention.Just be brave and... More

We enjoyed a good and plentiful paella and the outstanding and friendly attention of its hostesses. The environment is very warm, with pictures, paintings, hams, wines all hanging from the walls, creating a special atmosphere that sets the tone of the experience. As the friendly hostesses guide you to your table, she serves a complimentary liquor to help you decide... More

Our food was good, service was good, restaurant is pleasant. One word of caution --- portions are HUGE. This is not a bad thing, just something to be aware of. Order one dish for two people. We felt badly about not realizing this and ended up wasting a lot of food. This is perhaps something the wait staff should mention... More

Good Atmosphere and good service, I ordered a chorizo steak and it was hard and with no taste, good place for a couple of drinks and appetizer , maybe it wasn't my night but the food didn't taste good. Avoid.

Good value, elegant surroundings, and excellent service. Try the daily lunch specials for extra value. This restaurant specializes in traditional dishes from Spain.

At 8pm on Sunday the restaurant was empty however, it was full the night before. The Menu del Dia was excellent and we had a good bottle of wine for around 5 Euros. Overall, a good evening.

We had a really good Bife de Chorizo here. They have Asturian food here, but we did fine on the Argentine steak. As for service being slow, well it is Buenos Aires. BTW, the place is quite beautiful as are many restaurants in BsAs.

Based on Lonely planet review we went there for lunch. But we experienced quite bad service and very very bad food. The menu looks fine and they offer also daily menu but it is not worth the visit. The emptiness of the place should have warned us. I would highly recommend to avoid this place.

The restaurant looked inviting and traditional from the street but it provided a bitterly disappointing experience. Having ordered sangria, it took just over thirty-five minutes and numerous reminders before our surly and overworked waitress produced it, poor as it was; our paella was a mixture of tasteless pre-cooked rice on which the other ingredients were arranged... it was pretty ghastly...
