Thank you to all the other TA reviewers. We chose this place based on your comments. On our first visit we chose the El corte Mar del Plata - a sensational cut of young beef, together with what they translated as rump but was we think sirloin, cooked a punto (medium). Both stunning. Accompanied by a seasonal salad, jammed with... More

Food was very good, with nice selection and well served. Can't say anything about price since I was on a business lunch and didn't pay

If you are a foreigner in Argentina visiting Rosario and want to try an excellent piece of meat --"carne asada"-- do not miss this chance. Everything is good at this restaurant, including the service.

I was here for lunch so I can't comment on dinner, but they treated us very well and the service was FAST! We ate steak and they know how to cook it rare. They have a cut called el corte Mar del Plata which is huge and apparently unique to Rosario. Everything we ordered was exceptional. Give it a shot!

The borga fish was very tasty. The green salad was very tasty. The short ribs were good. Order the red pepper with cheese. The sambyon ice cream with walnuts is orgasmic! Overall a great experience and our favorite restaurant in Rosario.

I cannot complain about the food or wine I got, which were good quality. However, the service was disappointing. 3 servers were waiting doing nothing and still it took 10 minutes to get the menu. Then they brought to me an English menu (I was trying to speak Spanish with the servers though...), without any prices written on it !... More

After spending a year in Rosario, I can safely say that this is by far the best Parilla in town. The food is always perfect, the service friendly and experienced, and the location perfect to walk off your dinner by the river.

Classic parrilla with well-prepared dishes, enormous portions and an emphasis on service. We shared a tortilla española and matambre de cerdo, and were unable to continue. The tortilla was delicious, as was the matambre, which was around .5 kilo and perfectly grilled. Our waiter was entertaining and attentive, and it appeared all of the others were as well. Everything observed... More

I was invited to dinner twice during my recent visit to Rosario for business purposes. The service was excellent considering our large group. The appetizer was a parrillda combination and a arugula and tomato salad. Both were delicious. The entrées where other meat cuts including pork, beef tenderloin and "bife chorizo" which was magnificent. We accompany this with several bottles... More
