Could be Great!

We were craving lamb and walking by La Estancia we noticed the 'tenedor libre' (all you can eat). The lamb was visible and already cooking by the window. So we decided we would come here for dinner. We were promptly seated and the very helpful, pleasant server recommended the a very good wine... read more

We enjoyed a delicious meal of lamb (surprise! surprise!) here. We split an order based on recommendations from other travelers and left satisfied and full. The waiter joked with our kids and surprised them with free popsicles at the end of our meal.

Suggested by a hostel staff we walked in just after opening. Super nice waiter took care of us. Had a great chat about meet and Argentinian traditions. Place is not a cheapest one but it's worth every peso you spend there. Lamb is awesome! On the main street you can find other buffet like places but non is as good... More

Can't really say the salad bar was the best ever, but the meat was cooked to perfection. Didn't try the chicken or sausage but the lamb, delicious, and the beef could be cut with a fork. A variety of potatoes too. Service great and prices reasonable.

We had a recommendation to only go to this restaurant for the spit lamb, and it was great. You can have the buffet or choose from the menu. We got lamb from the menu and it was a very generous serving. We had such a good time that after our antarctica cruise we took a group of people from the... More

Wanted to try typical regional cuisine and this came recommended. Wait staff very helpful when we couldn't decide on all you can eat vs a la carte. He accompanied us to salad bar with small plate and plated one serving of salad to our preferences. Then we had the fire grilled meats. Too much food even for 3 of us.... More

I was reading the other last reviews and got a little intimidated. But, We decided to go anyways! The food was great. A well made beef steak with good fries. The service was good and they gave us digestif shots "on the house" at the end of the meal. There is an option to pay 350$ peso. And get the... More

Don't go here! The food was terrible! All the meat tasted the same. I don't know how anyone could think this was remotely good food unless you've never eaten before in your life! We should have stayed at our hotel and eaten the leftover crackers from the plane instead. They were gourmet compared to this place. On the upside, our... More
