Really good ambience and good food. The churros desert is also fantastic. gotta try it again.. During weekends it is usually crowded so you better check off hours. tip: You can make reservations using the "Shopping Iguatemi " app that is available in the Google and Apple Stores to avoid sitting in the line.

I had never been there and wanted to celebrate a dinner time so long not enjoyed. Mr. Tiago Rafael was so, but so gentle welcoming me and my husband with two glasses of champagne (as we have a baby at home and we're finally hanging out for a date!). He was very friendly and figured out what we should have... More

I waited for more than 2 hours for my dish and the restaurant was completely empty. The service seens to be good, but they changed the staff and even I asked more than 4 times about the food, only after pay the bill the food arrives. I just left the food and place.

The restaurant is a well decorated upscale place with a really nice atmosphere, good music (live when we went - friday night) and a menu with a good diversity of Argentinian meat cuts. They also have a nice selection of drinks (caipirinhas was very nice), as well as, a good wine selection. The waiter was generous enough but the kitchen... More

Located in an exclusive mall in Brasilia (Iguatemi), this restaurant is famous for its meats using argentinean cut (I love the Vacio), but I would add other highlights: the unique rustic decor, the wine list, the deserts (must try some of the "doce the leite" variations!!). During weekends there´s a duo that plays music there - which makes it even... More

Excellent steaks, Argentina style. Side dishes are also very well done and in large portions. The bread, however, is not as good as it is expected.

Pobre Juan is my favourite restaurant in Brasilia. It has an Argentinian vibe and operates a bit like a parilla. The restaurant itself if beautifully furnished with an amazing wine rack floating above the diners on the first floor. It is one of the few places in Brasilia where it is possible to get really good wine at moderate prices.... More

This is a very good restaurant with Argentinian Meat and very good side dishes. The service is excellent, the atmosphere very pleasant and the food delicious. But for all those features, they will really charge ( no less than 100 Brazilian Reais for each costumer, with couvert and dessert, no wine). I like it for very special ocasions
