Gorgeous food

Very tasty food and friendly service. Very calm atmosphere but it was a Wednesday evening. Some items on the menu were expensive but not everything and you get what you pay for in terms of quality and quantity. Nice to be able to literally taste that the fries are hand prepared and not frozen.

Another place for meet at Houston. I have to acknowledge that the variety and quality of raw materials was really good, but at the end of the day, it is just meat. Service was really nice and gentle. They response to all our questions and explain all differences form different kind of cuts they have.

This place has some great qualities and some that are not so great. The quality of the cuts of meat is really high, meat lovers will certainly enjoy the variety too. Service was also very nice and helpful. There is a wide variety of wines too. The entrees are really good but small, you might want to order a couple... More

The staff in the bar area were very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and the beer before lunch removed my thirst ! Went back in the evening and enjoyed an excellent dinner in the restaurant served by a experienced waiter. Unfortuneately there was no tango dance that night. No doubt I will visit this place again.

This place not only serves quality cuts of meat, but the taste of the meat is excellent. Too many places sacrifice flavour for tenderness - not here. Rich robust flavours to complement some good Argentinian Malbecs. Service was fine - nothing exceptional, but nothing bad. Only issue is that while having Argentinian (or South American) wait-staff adds authenticity, it doesn't... More

The restaurant is beautifully done.... love the décor and very clean. unfortunately, service was terrible, don't know if it had to do with where we were sitting or what was... More

Looking at the menu, the proposals are more expensive than those of other restaurants of same level and the served quantity is definitively smaller than in other restaurants. The list of wine is correct even if, again, quite expensive. The personnel is not well addressed and you are served by too many persons at same time thus creating disorder, the... More

This was my second visit and I appreciate this restaurant even more! I took my wife and daughter who are not fans of red meat. My wife had salmon and daughter had chicken and they loved their food. My father in law and I had the mixed grill of meats for two and the food was fantastic. The service is... More
