Went here for lunch on 20/02/16 stupidly without checking any reviews first. The waitress who looked after is was absolutely lovely, I couldn't fault her at all, I just feel bad that she must have to deal with so many complaints. We ordered vegetarian spaghetti which we were told would come with vegetables and a Milanese. The spaghetti was literally... More

We tried the noodles with olive oil and grated cheese, and the special of the day: empanada (meat-filled pastry) as starter and breaded veal cutlet with french fries and fried egg as main course. The service was fast, the food was very good. It is a place to recommend to those who wish to eat well (the empanadas were especially... More

Just get inside in its bathroom, take a look in the cooking room, had cockroaches on the walls. The worst Parrilla in Mendoza.

The only good thing was the funny and nice waiter who was new in his job and made mistakes, forgot things but made us laugh because he felt very sorry for everything at was simply not capable of dealing with so many orders. The food was not good. I told him I needed something without meat and so he said... More

We went there for dinner. Unfortunately are our spanish is not so good and we had asked the stuff, if there is any sidedishes included to the meat. He wrongly told us, there isn't any, so we ordered some. We finaly got the maincourse with pommes and the sidedish, which was definately to much to eat.

Wow, I'm glad I didn't read the reviews of this restaurant before we went. We stopped here for lunch and had the provolone pizza. We really liked it. The crust had that good flavor from a wood burning oven. I would go back.

The less said about this restaurant the better. Worst pizza we have ever tasted - you really have to try to mess up a Margherita pizza. Even the Mendoza street dogs stay away from this place!

I wish we had done a little research, but we were in a hurry and the restaurant looks nice and was conveniently located on the corner next to our hotel. We ordered a menu including bife de lomo and were presented with a tiny empanada and a thin fatty piece of meat with four slices of fried potato. When we... More

This restaurant presents well with outside tables and good location on Sarmiento. It should not though be that difficult to order one of the specials prominently displayed on the board for passers-by. It should not take 10 minutes to get the waiter's attention to pay the bill, and then 30 minutes to get the bill and receive the change. Poor... More

Overpriced substandard food cooked to a crisp. I'm sure someome forgot to remove the saddle before they killed the donkey they served up. The service made faulty towers look like the Ritz. Sad, because the location was good. Gordon Ramsay needs to give this place the once over.
