We booked to eat here whilst on our recent break. It was the best meal of out stay. From the moment we walked in we were greeted warmly by Florence aka Flo. She was the perfect hostess and honed her skill and art into making you feel very very welcome. All ingredients are explained and she has a passion about... More

Once again to visit this wonderful restaurant with its fantastic food, great wine and first class staff. Visited there 2 times in February and was not disappointed. Welcomed like a lost friend and made to feel that return was much appreciated. Meats are special and the selection of fabulous wines a pleasure to behold and sample. I look forward to... More

First time here and certainly not our last. I had the special starter of (I forget it's name) mozzarella with cherry tomatoes and mixed leaves and I can honestly say it's the best mozzarella I've ever tasted, so creamy, I didn't want to finish it! My husband had the special starter unique to Argentina - little puff pastry parcels filled... More

Help! We're hooked on Leon's cooking and Flo's wicked sense of humour. Apparently Flo was educated by Irish sisters of (no) Mercy in Argentina and that (kind of) explains everything!!! But seriously, this is our 3rd time returning here and because this has been an extended stay, our 3rd visit in 3 weeks. We think you'll get it when we... More

During our 14 days we ate at several restaurants in Puerto Calero and PdC and this is head and shoulders above the rest. Great service, fantastic steaks and wonderful wines.What more could you ask for.

As always a pleasure to visit and see the lovely Flo and Leo. It's always a take your time kind of meal in order to enjoy the fantastic food and wine on offer. Between four adults we enjoyed a cooked mixed meat starter and sweetbreads which are a real treat, so tender and the flavour is exquisite. For mains the... More

One of the best informal restaurants we found near Puerto Calero. Great steaks with a wonderful array of different salts from around the world. Florencia is the Argentinian, and very welcoming, front-of-house who speaks Spanish, English, French and some German. Leon is her Uruguyan partner who cooks all his meats on an Argentinian open grill. Just watch him calmly go... More
