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 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

We had a family gathering here while in town for the Presidents Day weekend. My brother lives in Miami, and I've been here before with him, so I was expecting better. The steak was very average, and took a long time to arrive. We had some appetizers, which were decent, but overall, small things like not asking for more drinks,... More

We just come from that restaurant and it was terrible. The food was good but the service was the worst I'Ve ever seen. We've waited more than 15 min to have our order taken (the place wasn't full at all, it's Monday), once one of the waiters decided to take care of us he was trying to convince us to... More

Where to start. Very lively place, super service, and extraordinary food. Our wait person Carmela was outstanding and it was crowded. Always there. Food was carefully prepared and served with perfect sauces. All the trimming and the house dessert was inspired.
