I used to come here years ago on a weekly basis, now the quality of every meat including the churrasco, chicken and even the filet mignon is horrible. Will never visit this place again. Two guys serving the entire restaurant on a sunday afternoon.. very sad, never again.

We visit the restaurant on a Monday around 2:00pm. The place is well decorated with Argentinian motives. There were 3 other groups having lunch. The service was fast and very courteous. We ordered steaks and they were delicious. The exact cooking point. They were served within reasonable time and everything was just fine. We'll come back for parrillada.

First visit in a long time and was a truly nice surprise. Beautiful and simple decor, piano music, good service and great food, all combined to create a memorable evening. Both choices of main courses were excellent and the presentation was very good. What a liked the most was that the waitress and the rest of the personnel were respectful... More

I expected a better steak from this restaurant . It tasted as if the grill has been started with kerosene , and that was transferred to the steak. The service was good . Ambiance acceptable for a business meeting.

Steak was OK. The menu offers a decent selection. The provoleta was runny but tasty. Chimichurri was pretty authentic as was the red sauce. Nice selection of Argentine wines. Service was disappointing. There were 2 servers but their attention was mostly taken up by two large groups. Servers were nice and knowledgeable but just very busy.

This restaurant serves the best parrillada in Puerto Rico, with all the cuts of meat associated with a traditional parrillada. The facility was recently completely renovated and is VERY nice now compared to what it was years ago (which was OK but very tired). The waiters are very friendly and the service is good.

I'm really sorry to write about this, but happened. This is how it goes with this restaurant. I was in a business trip and for lunch in one of the meetings I was invited to this restaurant. The restaurant look nice and we were seated on the spot. The waitress was nice and the beverages came soon with the wine.... More
