“Can I give this place 6 stars?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

This place is ridiculously good. Extremely well-priced, well-focused on delivering good meats, very respectable wine menu, very homey (if not a bit too colonial) of an environment. The ribeye steak was perhaps the best I had in Argentina. And the skirt steak and other proteins (trout, chicken) were also quite nice as well. The fries were fresh cut potatoes and nicely crispy and the Malbecs we had complemented the meal very well. Just an all-around excellent meal and experience. We went twice (out of 3 evenings). Just make sure you come early or make reservations -- the place is small and gets packed early.

“One of the best steaks I had in Argentina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

The food here was amazing. It came recommended by the hostel I stayed in and I wasn't disappointed. It was pretty busy, so you may need to book ahead.
I ordered the lomo, which was delicious. You can order salad and various types of potatoes as sides (mashed & fries). The mash was a huge portion but wasn't great, I would go with the fries instead.
Overall would highly recommend this place!

“Underwhelmed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

After reading all the reviews I was expecting to have a life changing experience....it was ok. Maybe we ordered the wrong thing, I don't know. We got the ribeye, it was a very nice cut of meat, but it was very bland with little flavor. Everything else was great, just don't go with the ribeye.

“Nice place but nothing special the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

My experience at the restaurant did not reach my expectations. The restaurant is, small but cozy. The food was nothing special. My option was a bife de chorizo with a green salad. The bife was poor in flavor, and a little overcooked. The salad was ok, but that it. Restaurant has a ok service, personnel is friendly, but for my opinion, I would not rate this restaurant as number 1 in Bariloche.
