I have been in the area for almost a month and really needed a good steak. I went based on the reviews here and was not disappointed!
The owner/hostess was very friendly and walked me through the menu. I had a lovely half bottle of Malbec which was perfect for the evening. I ordered the peppered steak(s) which came with TWO fillets and a side of au gratin potatoes and boiled carrots and green beans. I also started off with two empanadas (cheese and beef).
The cheese empanada, which I ate there was very good. The pastry was perfect and flaky. The cheese (which had some onion in it) oozed out nicely. I took the beef one home with me, but in hindsight should have eaten it there since it didn't heat up well. The meat tasted fine but the pastry suffered. There was also a nice loaf of bread with a herb/butter spread brought out which was also good.
The steak was wonderful and I could only eat one of the fillets, which suited me just fine. There wasn't really anything special about the carrots and green beans. I think improvements could be made there that would only entail a little more work per dish. I really thought I'd love the au gratin but I wasn't crazy about it. It was bland and dry...not like what I was expecting (a creamy cheese sauce) so I'm glad it came with the dish because I would have paid for it otherwise and probably been disappointed. I did take some of it home and put some cheese on it and salt/pepper which made it significantly better.
However, the empanadas, meat and wine were the real winners here. My bill came out to about $50 which is what I expected. The other appetizers seemed quite expensive and I really couldn't justify buying anything other than the empanadas (which I believe were about $3/ea). Considering I got another 1 1/2 meals out of the steak, I was happy and will return again when another craving hits.
