“Excellent Steakhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

After reading reviews here and getting a recommedation from the cook at our house, we visited here Sunday night for dinner. Nice restaurant with great service and some of the best steak I have had in a long time. Meat was very tender and was cooked to order. Highly recommend

“Best restaurant in Carrillo and Samarra combined”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

This restaurant has excellent steak, chicken, and salad dishes. The chimichurri with bread, which is their standard appetizer, is delicious. Each time we visit Carrillo or Samarra, we go to eat here at least twice.

“Great Find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

I had a great Ribeye steak for an affordable price. Better value than anywhere back home in the U.S. I ordered medium rare, and it was definitely on the rare side, to my pleasure. Perhaps that's just Argentinian style. An intimate, open air restaurante worth revisiting if ever in Carrillo.
