Loved the look of this place with it's excellent location on a scenic corner in Polanco, across from the park. Service was excellent, prices reasonable, and I loved their lasagna.

If you like simple but tasty Argentinan/Italian, whether is a steak, pasta or pizza this is a good place to go. The location is perfect.

With a "friendly" waiter - with a very forgetful service. overcooked meat (it's just meat! How can you get bad at cooking meat and charge for it and the relation between price and quality really overestimated. I will not return. Overpriced and on the top: the bathroom stinks worst that a gas station. I went there just for the family.... More

I think the main attraction is the outdoor dining area. The service is very good and the food average, I had the empanadas and a pizza, and I wasn't really impressed. The prices are good for Polanco, not that expensive.

The people watching can't be beat while enjoying a nice meal on their patio adjacent to the sidewalk. We ate there twice, and both times the service was good, as was the food. Is it the finest restaurant in Polanco, no. Is it one of the better ones, yes. Again, though, the outdoor patio and atmosphere is tough to beat... More
