“No vale la pena”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Went on the suggestion of an acquaintance. The steaks were Ok, but nothing to rave about. Served with cold french fries and cold fried onions. The chimichuri was marginal. The service was ok, the music way too loud. The first clue was that the place was virtually deserted at the dinner hour. You will do much better at San Carbon, La Doctora, or half a dozen other places.

“Nice rustic little place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The review promised the best steak in the world, better than Argentina, which was definitely an exaggeration. The Churrasco Che was flavorful and very tender, but it, and the tenderloin, were the only steaks offered. It was good, but I wouldn't run home to recommend it. The decor was cute, rustic chalet-style in the little room that we were in. It's also very difficult to locate in a strip of tiny restaurants/shops on Calle 9,
