This was our favorite restaurant so far. The personable husband and wife team that owns this intimate place have a small menu but executes dishes perfectly. We followed the recommendations that we have seen on TA and ordered the empanadas and mushroom appetizers and a rib eye. Great experience, make reservations about two weeks ahead

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience here. The menu is small, but everything we ate was excellent. Definitely try the mushrooms. We also liked the empanada and wine combo. The rib eye was very good. Medium rare is probably redder than medium rare in the USA. Plan to share some courses (the owners suggest that). They were friendly and welcoming and... More

We loved this place! The food is fabulous, and the decor is totally cool—basically gaucho antique. It seemed amazing that Renata and her husband could run the whole place by themselves, and that she still took the time to stop and talk to us throughout the dinner. We highly recommend it!

Highly recommended on TripAdvisor, but we found the menu rather disappointing. Effectively we were pushed towards having the steak. It was good, but not as enjoyable as elsewhere the previous evening and we would have preferred something else.

This is a great little restaurant run by a lovely couple. The menu is limited, but everything on it is carefully thoughtout. We enjoyed the enpanadas and ojo de bife. The crust that formed on the steak was perfect. It's the best steak we've had in Argentina so far!

We were back here again after a fairly long absence and everything is still great, especially the ribeye (ojo de bife). Good for groups, couples, or families.

Fabulous food, staff, wine, and a lovely atmosphere. Call ahead to book a table because it books up fast, not surprising. The menu is great for sharing dishes, and the food is super tasty. It's small and traditional, great food, and a great place to eat. Definitely recommend it 😄 Enjoy

Don't hesitate, just go! Full of local Argentinians which for any restaurant is the best indication of good quality and price. The husband and wife owners are so warm and friendly

It was my last night in Bariloche and the restaurant was fully booked, but when I begged they agreed to a booking at 10:30. I am so glad they did! It was such a lovely atmosphere and the food was great. My favourite part was the starters, mushroom bruschetta and empanadas. The owners were really helpful and attentive, and explained... More

This is a really exceptional restaurant. We ate steak all over Argentina during our recent trip but this was the absolute best. It is a small cosy restaurant run by a husband and wife team who are so welcoming and gave great advice on what best to eat. The Ojo de bife was beautifully cooked - perfectly pink in the... More
