LONG WAIT AND A NASTY OWNER

We like certain Argentinian dishes and went there to try their mollejas and asado de tira. Very tasty dishes but it took them 45 minutes to bring the appetizer. The worst part was when we asked for our bill , they had automatically added 18% tip. I understand that the tip is for good service... read more

I do not have many word to spend about this place.... just great food, nice location (two parking lots are attached), great customer service (friendly but respectful), great value. Ask for the ribeye... almost 3 ponds of tenderness. The best chimichurri I had in my life! It is just perfect!

Buyer beware! Have notified the BBB about the hidden charges and taxes this place inputs on your check. They add a $1 donation to a hospital without letting you know and also charge a 2% resort tax. When you complain about the tax they say it is "normal" for Miami Beach. It is not! We have been to many other... More

I went there with my family and ordered one "enrolada", one "vacachicha", one "cebola" and one "rusa". It was enough food for the four of us. But when the check was brought, the waiter added US$ 10,00 for "2 extra plates". Which he said to be restaurant policy for "sharing meals". Basecally we were charged for not ordering more entereés.... More

This to me is what food is all about...it is about the experience, atmosphere, great food, great service, and a fair price. This is a restaurant that should not be a place to simply fill your stomach, but a place to enjoy an evening, experience the food, drink wine...and not be in any rush what so ever. The servings were... More

Found this place while exploring Miami Beach. Excellent churrasco and over all great food. Nice atmosphere, a bit pricey but super worth it for the amount of food that you get.

They grill everything here,meat , chicken , sausage , vegetables. The first time I went here the food was superb and beautifully cooked. I went today with some friends and the meat...veal churrasco was over cooked. The sausage was good and the grilled vegetables were good. They didn't have any white wine that we wanted. They seem to only hold... More
