This is a typical Argentinian parrilla. You will not find anything fancy or pretentious in this place. It's a place where locals go with their families. There's no menu. Whatever is ready is offered to you and you accept or decline the dish. You can get several beef, pork and chicken cuts. The quality of the beef is not the... More

Not for vegetarians - this place is non-stop delivery of one plate of meat after another. All grilled to perfection - Argentinian asado on steroids. There were side dishes served as well. Our Argentinian friend told us that we had to tell them 'no más' or they would just keep bringing the food. Starve yourself before you go, because this... More

The service is great and the food too. You must prepare yourself to eat as if there is no tomorrow. All types of meat, chicken, pork, cheese. They have salad too, if you find some space on the table. And when you think you can't eat anything else for the next week, they will offer you the dessert. And guess... More

I went there with my Spanish school friends. We have a big parrillada with some cool Argentine wine. For me it was to much meat!, but everything was very good. I loved the chimichurry or something like that.

So for me this was the best steak house we went too. Don't get me wrong I did not eat one bad steak while in Argentina for 7 weeks. However this place did it right for the backpacker. With great meat options huge delicious sides ( go with the provencial potatoes) and a good bottle of Malbec this place become... More

The food was great. The bife de chorizo was the best. Service is soso but the price is good. In general is a nice place, perhaps a bit noisy

Ok..you have to wait to finally sit in shared tables. This is when the show begins. You´ll be asked your drink choice and just sit back and enjoy hte interminable amount of food practically thrown on your plate by the outgoing waitresses. By the way, the owner is part of the show and does make sure you are pleased at... More
