Our last night in argentina was spent here and it was wonderful! Building and room was beautiful. I heard the building was the home of the architect that helped build the steps for the San Martine statue in the big park. Tons of wait staff and very good English We were tired of steak so we had trout- different preps.... More

Food and wine were both nice, but they made us feel at home right from the beginning, even though we arrived very early by Argentine standards..

If you wish to eat outside, make sure to come later in the evening after the traffic calms down. The building is old and beatiful. My girlfriend described the bathroom as something made for a princess. The fresh bread and eggplant mousse was really good while going through the menu. We shared a refreshing ceviche starter. I had the 500... More

Decent food, great steak & great wine. Great place & I would go back. It's a little quiet for my tastes but it's really excellent & great value

Contrary to other reviews, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. The restaurant was recommended by our concierge and all our food was excellent (no overdone or undercooked veg!). I am not sure why people expect wait staff to speak English (you are in Argentina, buy a phrase book - surely part of the fun travelling to another... More

We had a rib eye steak (500 grams, 160 pesos) and a bife de mignon (300 gr. 160 pesos). meat was delish, juicy and full of flavor. grilled veggies and a big salad were also very tasty. the waitress also spoke English very well. all in all great.

We ordered a rib eye and sirloin. The rib eye was tasty. The sirloin was overcooked. After asking for medium rare, the steak came out medium well. The waitress explained she had heard wrong at first, later explaining that she had in fact written the order correctly but that there was a mistake in the kitchen. Dessert was offered on... More

We came here upon recommendation of Aconcagua climbers who like to eat here before starting the climb. My husband ordered the parilla which came with beef, pork, lamb, chicken, chorizo, and a blood sausage. He ordered it medium rare which is just too rare for me, so I nibbled. I liked the pork very much but surprisingly, not this chorizo.It... More

Consistently offers the best steak I've had in Mendoza. I also highly recommend their trout ceviche appetizer!

We had to get up at 4 am to catch a 6 am flight, so we asked to be served as quickly as possible and promised the wait wouldn't exceed 20 minutes. The food came after 55 minutes from the time it was ordered. My Ceviche de Trucha was a real disappointment and definitely not a ceviche (fish cooked in... More
