Delicious and reasonable prices

Ate Llama steak for the first time, which was amazing. The pumpkin soup was out of this world. Ambience was great and service top notch!

Pleasant spot with candlelit tables and art on the walls. Interesting menu with a few good vegetarian options. Soup was only soso, but the quinoa salad was quite nice. Pleasant service too.

If you really know your food and you appreciate people who know what they're doing with food then do yourself a favour and go for dinner here. The owner in his old life, was an artist and is one of those effortlessly cool people who is genuinely eccentric (not it w tiresome way though in the best possible way) but... More

This was definitely the best meal I had during my 3 month stay in Argentina, if not one of the best I've ever had! I tried llama for the first time and it was prepared perfectly!

The ambience and service stood out here but not the food. It was only average and stale bread was not a good look. But the hosts were wonderful and making a very worthwhile effort. A bit expensive for what you get, especially the wine list. But still worth a visit.

Great place that earns its high rating! Great location just in front if park & church, lovely restored building, inside its all about " warm & cozy". Service by the proprietor is truly top notch and beyond - from the moment you walk in to the handshake and/or abrazo on the way out - this guy goes above & beyond... More

Central location right opposite to the church. Nice large space (also a gallery). Friendly and helpful service. And, above all, great food!

The food and service lived up to its good reviews. Offers quality versions of the local dishes and has a cozy atmosphere. The chicken brochette, the llama meat and the desserts were excellent, including the dulce de leche pancake.
