Tasty combo

The meat mixed combo was a nice selection of sausages, chops and steak (the steak actually being very good and tender!) with some sides as a kicker. Really good to share between two at $20 if you're meat lovers.

After trying it for the first time during a visit to Banos in 2009, I was hooked and Quilombo became my regular haunt for steak and wine in town. Interesting decor, good service, great selection of grilled meats and wines. The chef/owner seems like a bit of a kook, but in a good way. I thoroughy enjoyed each experience I... More

As soon as I saw the anti-Semitic signs, I was out of there. However, there is even more to the story. After I left, he told my guide that the signs must've gone up the night before because he knew nothing about them. As you can see from the other reviews this was totally untrue. But he did tell my...

My boyfriend and I opted for the shared meat main course. It certainly had enough meat! Lovely accompaniments and beautifully seasoned meat made this an awesome dinner! As long as you come hungry and expect to eat a lot of meat you will not be disappointed with the great value meal. Had a litre of the house wine as well... More

This is the place to be for meat lovers! The Argentinian chef still knows how to lite up his "parilla" (Argentinian bbq). I've been in Argentina for 10 weeks and had a lot of meat but this is definitely one of my top 3 meat places! Go for lomo!!!

Please do not mind reviews concerning the "anti-semic" etc messages towards this place. I think that every restauraunt has it right to refuse who ever they want. I am also 100% sure that if any Israelian group/person would came here for a meal, they would not refuse to serve them. Gaza and palestine is politics, we came for the meat!... More

The food here is really good. The meat is tasty and the service very good. Unfortunately I can't recommend the place because of their outspoken and inappropriate political views.

Hungry at lunchtime, and not willing to venture far from the hotel due to Carnaval shenanigans, we found Quilombo just up the street. It seemed inviting, so we decided to give it a try. We were greeted and seated right away and once we got a hang of the -er- ´´ innovative´ menus, ordered some drinks and meals. The drinks... More

Don't go to that restaurant! The owners are racist, they hanged a sign in their entrance: "Israeli's are not alloud''. It reminds signs that were maid in Germany in the 1930s.

First off, the food in this place is fair for an Argentinian style restaurant. The $20, two-person special is a good deal and you do get a generous portion of each kind of meat and side items. However, we had to flag down service three times and the waitress "assumed" that the $60 given for the $41 bill included her... More
