“Nice "parillada" to eat lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

I actually went to this restaurant on a few occasions for lunch. It's always very good! They have a very nice selection of wine to go with the "parilla" they serve. If you're a Foodie and like to eat beef, you'll enjoy this place for lunch. It's probably nice for dinner too, but so far only went for lunch. I also like their "flan" dessert, which is delicious too.

“One of the best places to eat meat in MVD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The picana, ocho de bife and lomo are probably the best cuts of meat you will find in town. Make sure to tell the waiter that if they do not get bring the meat cooked exactly as you asked for it you will send it back. They pride themselves on getting it right. Try also the grilled squash which is one of the best in town.

“Tops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012 via mobile

In my opinion one of top 2-3 places to eat meat in this city. Try half portions of the picanha or ocho de ancho and definitely try the grilled squash. Excellent and good service. Avoid to eat upstairs if possible

“Couldn't have enough of this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

3 visits in 2 days... Maybe it's because our office is around the corner, but seriously, this place will knock your tastebuds off. You don't have to eat meat there either. The chicken is amazing, and the vegetable brochettes are succulent. But the meat is flawlessly delicious.

You won't be disappointed.
