“Huge portions, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014 via mobile

This may not be authentic Argentinian but you would have to be a vegetarian not to like this place. Ribeye is best cut but huge. Fillet Mignon comes in more reasonable portions. Meat is cooked to order and served hot promptly. I had tomato and onion salad and Chile Tornados on the side. All was very good and cliles were not painful. Great meal.

“Great "parrilladas".”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

The place is one of our favorites for eating good meat in Tijuana. The service is average ( sometimes slow) but the food is always great. I recommend ordering the "parrillada" it serves up to 3 people and has different cuts and styles of meats, and the "ensalada pampera" is very good also. Enjoy!

“Pretty bad”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

This place isn't the worst ever, maybe 1.5 stars. The food is pretty gross though. Things taste rubbery, overcooked, whatever. Food is bland or just cooked improperly. Kind of expensive for the junk they serve too. Wouldn't really recommend to anyone. Also, outside the pretty bad meat quality there's very little that you can order iirc.

“Fake argentinean restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

I was told by my mexican friends to go check the best Argentinean restaurant around, well I cant wait to tell my friends and every body how disappinted I am. As Argentiinean I really felt ofended of being offer mexican food like empanadas stuffed with cheese and rajas or elote and rompope cake. The least Argentinean experience. The attention was poor by waiters with no experience/knoledge about Argentinean food. Non recomendable at all as Argentinean restaurant.

“Nice portion size for the well to eat.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Nice family style restaurant, focus on Argentine stye cuts of beef, the meats where cooked to our liking not over or under done. The size of the portions was quite large :) for both the steak and chicken breasts.
The Salad dressing was a nice vinegaret with red wine vinegar lots of taste but not overtly over powering. The empanadas are deep fried, I was expecting baked ones. Good selection of bajacalifornian wines available.
Would visit again.
