Great steak house, the chimichuri sauce here is amazing, we ended up buying a bottle before we left. THe mixed grill was more than enough food for two people. The fried yuca was perfect, crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. I would recommend this place for a nice date or special occasion.

Pricewise, entrees are adecuately priced for a steakhouse. Similarly, wines are not astronomically priced, although the selection is on the smaller side. There is ample room and tables are accommodated nicely,... More
