If like lots of meat this is the place. Argentinean food at its best. You get lots of food and I had a meet sampler kind of dish with sausage and lots of beef.

Previous to our trip the Yucatan, we had gone to Argentina, where my boyfriend fell in love with the grilled meats of the region. How thrilled he was to find a restaurant in Playa that not only matched, but exceeded the food we had experienced the previous year. Great food, atmosphere and service.

Make sure you stop here and have a steak, a lovely glass of wine, or a cocktail...and don't miss the delicious empanadas. This restaurant is beautiful, the clientele young and hip and located on a great corner for people watching if you sit outside. Take my advice, sit outside.

The Chuletón is the best cut of meat. Also recommendable is the grilled octopus.

Myself, my partner and her parents and brother stopped here for dinner thanksgiving night. Although the menu is simple the quality of the food is terrific, we all had appetizers, and steaks.

Dropped into this restaurant on my way home from the beach. Very nice atmosphere, with excellent service. Was going to order a pasta dish, but my server had other ideas. I took his suggestions and enjoyed a marvellous dish consisting of chicken, mashed potatoes and asparagus. This is something I never would have chosen-but it was beyond delicious. It was... More
