Even if you are not a meat lover there are many choices as the delicious red tuna tartar, grilled vegetables, etc. Great food, very nice service and nice atmosphere.

Never in my life, have i experienced such a disrespectful treatment from the staff. It was already difficult when NONE of the staff members spoke a word of english, this resulted: we had to order 4 out of 9 drinks 3 times, the meat we ordered were not the meat we got, only half of our sidedishes came, and the...

I went there on a thursday night for the afterwork concept. It is really different than the one I've tried in other restaurants. The new barra it's a big space surrounded by a giant room, where on thursday you can drink and dance with very good music. The picoteo concept is very cool, because you try mini appetizer and than...

I went here for lunch the other day, after wanting to go for a long time. The atmosphere and the decoration is excellent. Very elegant restaurant. However, first: I was a bit disappointed by the service. Two waiters attended us and none of them were at the level of the restaurant. The waiter that charged us didn't even say thank... More

It's worth going for the food. The service is not of very high standard, but the wine selection and the argentinian beef makes it a good place to go. The beef comes from different sources, only a few come from Argentina.

When I ate a lot of steak, this is where I went - always delicious. The desert of pancakes and dulce de leche is difficult but worth forcing.

The best thing about this restaurant was the Malbec wine! Service was prompt and professional but the meat was not what you expect of an Argentine restaurant. It was fatty and chewy - not the best cut of meat. Starters were good, the empanadas excellent, but overall we were not excited. The tarte de queso, cheesecake, appeared to be old... More
