We ate there twice during our stay, the meat is exceptional! Had "vacio Argentino" both times. The restaurant is very small and intimate, a great romantic restaurant. Service is good, wine list is rather limited. Maybe my only negative comments would be that the sides with the meat are rather limited albeit delicious. The meat is served with grilled vegetables....

We stopped in for a grilled burger recommended by our dive master and we were quite pleased by the quality and value. Cute little corner for an afternoon drink as well.

One night Steak and another night the best burger I have ever had. The charcoal roasted onions mushrooms and peppers as a side was delicious. We ate out on the Calle 6 and it was fun and comfortable. This is just one block from the water front. I will be back.

Unfortunately, we found this place with only two nights left. We would have been here every night. We had five people, three people got the Alfredo pasta with lobster or shrimp in it. (Alfredo was not on the menu, but he made it anyway, and it is way better than olive garden). Two people ordered steak and lobster and the... More

There was 14 of us. We have been here several times over the years. You will not find a better steak on the island, also you should try a lobster tail. Great staff and food.

We texans take pride in the grill marks and charcoal char that gives the out door taste. Our rib eye was cooked medium ( kinda med rare + that i prefer) But seemed to lack that charcoal grill taste, and may be comparable to sreaks cooked on a range. The chimichurri sauce helped, but i also asked for some A1.... More

This was a very pleasant experience. The steak was exceptionally cooked. Get it with the Argentine chimichurri sauce. My only complaint was the cut of steak wasn't the best but I got the least expensive steak on the menu. It still tasted delicious. Came with baked potato which I haven;t had since I've been in Mexico and grilled vegetables, yummy.... More

The Blue Cheese burger is my favorite .....but the steaks are also outstanding!!!!! All of the best....cooked on an open wood fire grill....you can't beat that favor. The atmosphere is very nice and I have always had great service. This is NOT a $4 burger place......this is when you want to treat yourself to something special. Quiet outdoor street seating...

Delicious steak and lobster dinner that was very affordable! Best steak I've ever had. Great service and ambiance. Lobster is very common in all the restaurants in Cozumel and this was the best lobster we had there!
