Great facility, intimate setting, great steaks and service. Conveniently located on India Street. Perfect business lunch. The Picanha was amazing and the chimichurri (with bread) is to die for.

The atmosphere is nice and unique, we were a group of 6 and were seated in a quaint little back room. The wine and food were expensive but it was an enjoyable meal.

Warning: don’t accept the bread, it just takes up room for the amazing dinner you’re about to eat! The chimichurri is legendary. The sangria is generous and delicious. Service is top notch.

Delicious from start to finish. Order a bottle of cabernet / malbec blend to go with wonderful sizzling langoustino shrimp as a appetizer. The skirt steak (entrama) is a highlight to go along with a mixed spinach salad. Yummy! My lady had Lomo, alean filet...More
