Loved this restaurant. It’s located on the top of a hill and it has the best ambiance (so peaceful and quiet.) The food was extremely delicious and the service was amazing. I would definitely come back for the hanger steak. Great prices also!

Went there with my wife for a mid week diner; just the main course. Service was good and the steaks were awesome. Especially the petit tenderloin.

My wife and I shared the Argentinian Ribeye and the Churrasco. The Churrasco was very good but the Ribeye was one of the best steaks I have ever had. I love the open air concept and the incredible view.

In my 46 years I have never written a review of anything. I’ve eaten at great restaurants and bad ones but never thought writing a review was worth my time. All changed when my family tried, unsuccessfully, to have dinner at this restaurant. This review...More
