The staff was very nice. Everything was very clean (see the sterilized silverware photo). The meat cuts were good, and one of my two pieces of fish was cooked well -- the other was a complete disaster, overly done, too dry even with all the chimichurri -- though perhaps this is why I got two pieces? The provoleta was different and welcome - sort of a friend version, which was like a big flat cheesestick. Wine was good. All around good experience.

We had a great beef dinner here, arrachera and vacio, both of which are flank steak. But tender and delicious, along with a couple of very tasty empanadas to start. Along with a bottle of Trumpeter wine, the meal was excellent, though expensive, as was the service.
