This father/son-owned establishment closely mirrors the excellent dining experiences I had in Argentina. For starters, the lentil soup -- thick with bits of sausage and vegetables -- was among the best I have ever eaten. The flavors were so marvelously melded that it tasted like it had been slow-cooked for many hours. The oh-so-tender skirt steak, topped with an authentic... More

The steaks are marinated in a chimichuri sauce and grilled to perfection Argentina style, as are the veggies also grilled and served with steak potatoes. The boneless beef ribs are slow roasted and melt in your mouth. The Milanese steak has been been beaten thin and tender with a wonderful spiced fried batter. The Malbec wines from Chile and Argentina... More

The food was cooked with olive oil, it was so tasty like homemade food. The chimichurri was SO delicious. I love that we were able to watch some of the soccer game highlights.

Found this restaurant on tripadvisor. Family driven, small cozy restaurant, with easy decorations and no fancy stuff. Excellent service, and steak made exactly according to instructions.

Found this restaurant on trip advisor and decided to try it. Best decision! Family owned, Gus and his Dad greeted us at the door. The service was perfect. We knew it was going to be a great experience from the moment we walked in! Had a steak, empanadas and the chocolate tres leches cake. A glass of wine too! Everything... More

Surprising because the restaurant is located in an old strip center and has a very unexciting facade. Good because the parking is easy and adequate, menu varied featuring foods from Uraguay and Argentina. Empanadas superb. Beef dishes tender and flavorful. Vegetables fresh and perfectly grilled. Flan for dessert with leche que mara elegant and we could have had much more.... More

We visited this place based on the reviews. The reviews are spot on. It is in a dated, understated strip center but inside is nice. the food and service were terrific. I would never have found this gem without Trip Advisor. Thank you!!!

The front door doen't say a thing ab I ut the place. It almost seemed closed. Spacious place and very good service, you know the meaning of south american hospitality here. Meet is amazing, cooked the way you want it. Try the wine from Uruguay (Tannat), was so sweet we had 2 bottles for 3. I recommend

I found this gem via the reviews and worked out perfect that it was en route from business meetings to hotel afterwards. The family business shows attentive service and exceptional quality of food. House made chimchuri was even better than my wife's (which says a LOT) and I couldn't get enough of it with my ribs, veggies and fresh bread.... More
