Rainy day, we were the only visitors there for lunch. Why would the service be so slow? My beef stew was very hearty, very flavorful. My wife got a steak sandwich, which at an Argentinian restaurant, you have high expectations for - those expectations were...More

Small quaint place to eat before concerts at Mozamibique. The shishitos, green beans, okra and brussel sprouts all grilled to perfection! Grass fed burger was really good too. Highly recommend and good for vegetarians!

Love this place. Have been there several times and it never disappoints. Grass fed meat and very fresh and savory sides and salads. The service is fabulous!
