Enjoyable Meal

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here last night. I had the Bife de Chorizo. It was closer to rarer than the medium rare that I ordered but still tender and tasty. She enjoyed the roast chicken. The excellent grilled vegetables and a salad completed the meal. We were too full for dessert but polished... read more

Three of us went for dinner. The weiner schnitzel was as good as anything you would get in Germany. The atmosphere of the place was nice and the food was very good. The service was great. The meats were also prepared nicely.

Discovered this place and ate here each day of our stay. The classic filet and great Argentinian steak are two pieces of meat which simply should not be missed. We also had the chicken and calamari both very nice as well. A little pricey for Argentina, but in American dollars the best value for the best steak in possibly the... More

My group had an outstanding meal at Casimiro. We wanted to go to another restaurant, but that place was full and the owner of that establishment recommended Casimiro. The food was outstanding, the service very good. The steaks and lamb were cooked to perfection.

S50°20.287' W72°15.734' they proclaim that their kitchen combines classic and innovative dishes, always faithful to quality. The restaurant was fully booked by tourists. A warning sign. Did they meet their standard during our visit in December 2014? Clearly not. The restaurant looks smartly designed with a view on their parrilla behind a window and their wine cellar. Much attention was... More

Nicely presented......in the Main Street. A classy place to have a drink...........at least it felt like that without expectation and price tag. The coldest beer in town and great service. That was all we were there for initially but enjoyed it so much we stayed on for pre dinner snacks. Sadly we had booked elsewhere for dinner. Give it a... More

First impression was very good, host was able to sit us on December 24th without a reservation. However, when food arrived taste and presentation were average, not what I would expect for such high price. To make things worse, server completely forgot about our table: never received our sides for the beef and only saw server when we chased him... More

We had steak and gnocchi-both were delicious! Had some trouble ordering wine as we wanted savignon blanc and they were out of 3 of the 4 types until we finally got a bottle of the fourth (which was the last bottle that they scrambled to find). It was packed in there so it may have just been a busy night.... More
