What a bummer! Several of our friends and our travel agent recommended this place and it just didn't live up to the hype. When we arrived, they couldn't seat us right away and were initially very attentive, apologizing profusely and procuring us a drink while we waited. After that, it was all downhill. We got the beef and cheese empanadas to start. Just ok. We actually had better at the little cafe at Sugarloaf. From there, it took us over an hour to get our food during which no one checked on us or refreshed our drinks. When our meal finally did come, it was borderline mediocre to downright not tasty. I had the steak with creamed spinach and a block of cheese potatoes. Just about every chain steakhouse in the US does it better. My husband had the Rio Rice, which wasn't bad but certainly was not worth $50!! It was literally just rice, shrimp and a few veggies in a saffron sauce. When we went to leave, they wanted us to use their car service and charge double what our hotel quoted. It would have been a 5 minute walk but the hotel didn't recommend it because it could be dangerous. So we basically were stuck using it. Only redeeming quality: the view/uniqueness of setting.
