The place is very beautiful and the location is amazing! They have a nice sitting area outside, but the night was windy and rainy so we sat inside.
We read some recommendations about the grill for 2, so we gave it a try.
And we loved it! The appetizers were very tasty, the ribs were juicy, but the true winner of the night was the skirt steak.
Apparently in Argentina they cook the steak with the membrane around it... Which makes it even better!!! All the flavors of the meat are inside and the meat tastes soooo good!
We had a bottle of wine and a homemade flan for desert. Paid around 70 us

We read many of the reviews for this place and decided to give it a try...

1. Patio was closed due to high winds...not their fault.
2. Wonderful view of Carribean.
3. Great ambiance.
4. Food was average for the price point.
5. Seemed like french fries were frozen store bought...seems they would be fresh at this restaurant. But what do I know...I eat potatos almost every day.
6. Our waitress seemed...hmmm...not happy to be there or something...not sure how to read her but it wasn't good. Maybe it was the Pentagram she was wearing that was giving off weird vibes...LOL
Definitely not worthy of #3 over all Trip Advisor rating. But it was OK. There are much better food choices on the Island from our perspective. But we wish them the best of luck...

PS...in case you think I'm not a nice fella, I did tip 20% because that is how I role!

Argentinian style food with modern flair. Great menu, delicious food, super service. And then there's the view. Al fresco dining virtually by the sea, we went before sunset and stayed for hours. Great mojitos, skirt steak and paramilitary. I highly recommend this place.

Were excited to hear about this newest hotspot on Isla when we arrived. I was familiar with the beautiful building right by the sea when it was a bar. The owners have done an incredible job with the renovations. It's very simple yet elegant with a really hip vibe. If you want one of the 4 tables on the veranda right by the sea you need to make reservations. We ate here two nights while visiting last month and will now call it a favorite! The chef owner is a true carnivore so you'd expect to find a great sampling of carne; however, his wife/owner is a vegetarian so there's several nice items for the non-carnivorous appetite. The salad is huge and should be split between 2 people. I had the ribeye (cooked medium perfectly) my first visit and then the second visit I had the black linguiine with shrimp. The hand made pasta was infused with squid ink, hence the black, color. It was scrumptious. I will definitely be back!

Our Brazilian dive-master recommended this Argentinian Steakhouse to us and we decided to give it a try. It is located on the eastern side of the island, just south of el centro past the Catholic Church. No sunsets, but the view is fantastic. It's also a little cooler and more breezy for dinner, which believe me was way important in August! We were greeted upon entry by a very elegantly dressed woman who seated us immediately. Our waitress was very attentive and overall the service was top-notch. We enjoyed the steak for two which provides us with a marinated flank or skirt steak (I don't remember) along with a marinated NY Strip. Both were excellent! The accompaniments were also very tasty. Overall, it was a delightful experience enjoying good food, a good Malbec, and looking out over the ocean as dusk settled in. I recommend Los Fuegitos for a special experience.
