“small space”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

like the menu, but the place is too small and there was a big waiting for the food, the appettizer get to the table almost at the same time than the entrees and the bread even if it was delicious and homemade also get to the table within a long time after we were seated,

“Always Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

My second time. Great food and great service. The place is really small and very popular so expect a wait. The food quality is great and good selection of wines. Deserts are home made and a must!

“Argentinian Style Grill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

This small Argentinian style grill restaurant in Rincon has first-class ingredients in all their dishes. So is the way they have about preparing and serving them. If you know and enjoy Argentinian-style grilling and the dishes that go with it ( a blend of Spanish and Italian fare), you will have an enjoyable experience. Their "embutidos" ( sausages, chorizos, longaniza and the (to me "heavenly") morcilla (black sausage) are really excellent and the closest you can get on this part of Caribbean to Buenos Aires.

Their home-made pastas are excellent, and the chef's delicate soup offering's are excellent as well. A big it with my grandchildren.

To offer such a menu on an island where it is difficult (or was) to get bona fide argentinian primary ingredients to elaborate quality products with that honest Argentinian cuisine taste, is, to me, a meritorious achievement and, to me, it has been an enjoyable experience the seven times I've been there.

“Good food, good service, expensive prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

I enjoyed the food, the meats are really good, the service is ok, but the place is really small and crowded, the prices are too high, especially on the drinks. Will not go back.
