Took are friends to this restaurant for their wedding anniversary. Flo greated us like long lost friends! Don't expect to be in and out in a short time as Flo takes time to explain the menu to all the diners herself in detail, she is very informative about the menu. Food excellent value for money. Will be back again.

Another trip to this restaurant as great as we remembered, fab steak, one of the best I have ever eaten, wonderful service and the sides are out standing and very different. We tried the egg and potato salad and the coleslaw , amazing. The empanadas are a must! Go hungry as it's all very filling!

Flo and Leo are like a very good gin and tonic, Flo being the tonic! This is an amazing place to eat, Leo knows his subject good Argentine beef in all its guises and cooks it to perfection and to order. Flo should be bottled and sold in pharmacies she is such a tonic, her constant good humour and banter... More

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

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.
