“Cute restaurant, great service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Went because we heard about great Churasco (skirt steak) -- and it was everything it was cracked up to be!

They also had a full bar from beer to wine to sangria, and the service was terrific -=- prompt, knowledgeable, polite, and attentive. We would definitely go back.

One thing to note, the Sangria was average -- so after the first order we switch to beer and wine, which were both great.

“Go for sure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012 via mobile

Great Argentinean Restaurant. Excellent meat and pasta dishes. One of the few places you can order a nice salad. Excellent wine selection and great specials during the week. Service is good and the prices reasonable.

“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

Have been here a few times and really enjoy dining in this restaurant. The food has always been excellent and the prices moderate. All the time the waitresses have been attentive and courteous. Nice selection of Argentinean cuisine. Would recommend.
