“Great meat, not so great sides!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

We decided to go to this restaurant as we were wanting some Patagonian lamb and this place did not disappoint! The lamb was beautifully cooked and by checking out other patrons dishes, the meat In general looked fantastic. Unfortunately we weren't given the option of the buffet, which was strange because others were having it, we were told it was 'out of order'?? So we ordered sides of steamed vegetable instead...almost in edible, the were boiled beyond taste and were a strange mix of egg, beet root, carrot, tomato, pumpkin and eggplant. A shame as other vegetable sides we have had at other parillas have been delicious. Service was good and friendly. If you choose this place, go for the meat and opt for buffet-if you're allowed!

“Good Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Very good service and food. It is worth to get the fix price menu and eat all you want. Lamb was good, and the salad bar as well. Good value.

“Excellent All You Can Eat Buffet w/BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

An excellent all you can eat buffet with fresh salads, vegetables and pastas. You can have all you can eat BBQ of beef, pork, lamb and chicken. The buffet also includes desert. But does not include drinks. Come hungry.

“Succulent Lamb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This place was recommended to us by our hotel concierge - and we were certainly glad to have accepted his suggestion. The spectacular arrangement of barbequing lambs inside the front window was somewhat arresting, but the meat was simply delicious, crispy where it should have been and succulent where it should have been. The salad table was pretty ordinary - but, hey, who goes to a parilla for the salad?

“Good grilled meat, good salad table”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

This place is quite nice, but a but too touristic and just trying to make most money out of you.

Don't let them choose a wine for you, you'll just get surprised by something that isn't even on the list and costs double than what you'd expect. They wouldn't need to do this, why do they??

The garnish table is below average, even though the selection is excellent. Taste is not. The salad buffet table is very good and has huge selection.

The meat grill. Wow, that is the reason to come here. The taste is about perfect. The guy at the grill really knows what he is doing, and he has a separate tip bowl. He deserves the tip, others don't!

Go eith the meat and salad buffet and choose the wine yourself, you might actually love this place after that!
