We wandered in here for dinner on the very simple basis that it was across the road from our hotel. Here it's all about the grill. And the MEAT. We emerged a ton of protein and a large amount of $$ later. And enjoyed every bite. Not cheap. But worth it. There was also a very good performance of the... More

I recently ate at this restaurant for the second time, having dined here once before about a year ago. The food is very good and artfully prepared, but like all expensive restaurants, you spend more time admiring the artistry of the preparation than eating it, because the portions are quite small considering the very high prices. It is very easy... More

We went here on Father's Day, and it was great! If you like Malbecs, this is the place for you. They had at least 50 on the menu! Our waiter, Robert, was great and was good with kids. He was very knowledgeable about the food and wine. There was nice, live music. Will come back!

The atmosphere was beautiful and the tango dancing was a treat. The food was very good. The noise level was a little too much for 6 people at a round table. There seem to be booths in the front that would have been quieter, but they were only for 4 people. We have the sweet breads, tongue, and a grass... More

We were staying at the Galleria Courtyard and wanted a restaurant within walking distance. So I used Tripadvisor, proving again that I can rely on these reviews. My party tried a variety of dishes including chicken, wild boar and seafood. Everyone thought that the food was very good. I had the Wild Boar chops and they were perfectly cooked over... More

Little can be said because of the miserable waiters and bar staff. Food is good and cooked over a wood burning grill, the drinks are plentiful and variable but can be slightly on the dear side. Once again do not expect the flavour of Latin America, that is if they are miserable all well and good.

A group of us ate outside on the patio, on a warm evening. The restaurant is centrally located in the Galleria district, on Sage Rd, just down the street from the Galleria Mall. We were offered the wine menu, which of course, was complimented with multiple Malbec choices from the Mendoza region of Argentina. After selecting our wine, we were... More

The halibut was great. Bread and rolls wonderful. I had two appetizers of "local" cuisine, they both were extremely good. Only complaint, it would have been great to have an "argentinian" sampler of sorts. Odd to find Tandoori on the menu? Nice option in the Galleria area. Great service. will go back

Great place for a bar meal when on your own .. attentive staff, wide ranging menu, good wines. All is good, but I struggle to move away from my favorites, the mango and crab appetizer and the picanha!!!!! .. with a good malbec, a fine meal. A couple dancing tango on Sat evenings adds to the fun. Nice patio area... More
