“Henrique and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We returned last night for the 4th time in one year, and found the same impeccable and warm reception. This is the restaurant that uses woodburning fires to prepare first rate Argentinian meat specialities. As usual, the food was perfect with generous portions at reasonable prices, and service is swift, polite, knowledgeable about meat cuts as well as wine, and what should go together. The wine list includes excellent Argentinian wines from the region of Mendoza and known Spanish brands. The restaurant interior is contemporary elegant with comfortable seatings, as well as being suitable for discreet gatherings. Well air conditioned. Highly recommended! From Kristin and Michael who live in the region (Elche) permanently.

“If you are looking for steak”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

The restaurant opened just a few days before we were there. The interior design is light and modern and has an almost Nordic feeling. It is nice with something else than the Spanish menue that are more ore less the same all over St Pola. The service was friendly but unorganized and the so called sommelier was the biggest joke ever. He didn´t know anything about wine and nothing about the food either. The steaks were really good big and well prepared as well as grilled vegetables and the grilled cheese. If you don´t want steak pick another restaurant, the chicken was boring and try.
