Highly recommended! The food was excellent and the service was very welcoming and attentive. The lamb is the best we've ever experienced and it is enough for two. Definitely a perfect experience!

I did not feel that I could afford the grilled lamb while I was here as it was so expensive, so I went for a risotto and a sausage. The portion size for the risotto was generous and the dish itself was quite nice, but the sausage they give you is very small. I felt that the value wasn't so... More

Grilled lamb meat is very good. Service is good. Not a cheap eating place and not good for kids. Some children kept running around without supervision.

It is a very expensive place, and the Cordero wasn't good. Very good ambient, but very expensive for kind of food that we got. The service was good.

Most places don't seem to open for dinner until 7pm, but his place was open earlier. We tourists appreciate that since I'm used to eating dinner at 5pm. Even though the restaurant was nearly empty when we went, the place had a fun atmosphere (filled with the smell of grilled meat) and the staff seemed to be very engrossed in... More

After spending two weeks in Buenos Aires and Patagonia, we came here as our last meal in Argentina before heading to the airport and this was by far our best meal! We had the filet cooked medium rare and lamb and both dishes were absolutely perfect!

After Glacier trekking we were pretty darn hungry. We couldn't have found a better restaurant. We had a sausage for starter and the portion so generous you could have mistaken it for the main. The actual main, delicious Patagonian lamb. Mmmmm. No room for pudding. The staff were really friendly and even let me take photos in their bbq. I... More

I was so hungry and asked in my hotel for the recommendation for the best beef. Casimiro Bigua was one of the two, I was told about, so I decided to go there. It wasn't late evening yet, so that time it's a bit tricky to find many restaurants open, as argentineans are used to have dinner much later. So... More

We shared the Patagonian lamb and it was done to perfection. My experience in another well reviewed restaurant was that it was very over cooked. The wine was excellent and the service was perfect.
