Everything cooked over wood fire. Tried chorizo and pork ribs and both were fantastic. Staff were friendly and engaging. Quite pricey, however good quality meats are expensive in this area. Would recommend for sure.

Delicious food. This was some of the best grilled chicken I've ever had. I came here 2 nights in a row and would come again.

We chose this restaurant for our last night out after an ATV adventure during the day. The Argentinean mixed grill for 4 people was our choice and it didn't disappoint! Amazing grilled meats.

Great food, reasonable prices, good service. You walk into this restaurant and see the fire going with a "box-spring" as the grill. The chicken is so tender and the empanadas were really good. Our family has been coming here for 10+ years. This trip we...More
