“Super Thick, Super Tender, Ribeye Steak”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Great cuts of meat in a modernist atmosphere with ample seating inside and out. Definitely not high on the list of tourist spots, this is a locals place but worth a try if you have the extra dough. I believe my ribeye dinner was about 300 to 350 pesos, but it was a monster cut!

“Excellent Choice”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Beautiful, modern Argentinian steak house with trendy bar, kitchen behind glass for viewing and excellent service. The portions are more than ample and the desserts...we shared four at our table of six....were amazingly good, especially the dulce de leche.

The crowd is late to arrive (not as late as Argentina) and tends to be a younger and more affluent appearing clientele.

“Best steak in Merida!”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

This place is owned by the same guy who owns La Parrilla's. He really knows how to provide 1st class food with good service and great value! I've always had great meals here. Very consistent! Watch them prepare your meal through the glass walled view of the grill.

But not just the steaks are perfect. The empanadas are to die for and make a great starter. The salads, pasta, seafood - everything is excellent. Good wine selection and they over-pour their cocktails. Finally, the deserts are all fabulous! The crepes are sensational!

If you don't know the city well, it can be difficult to find this place. It's on Montejo but driving in Merida can be challenging. Driving and trying to find a place on Montejo can be very challenging. Just grab a cab. They are reasonable and you'll arrive ready to enjoy a fabulous meal!

“very good service and friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

This is a large restaurant, with different areas, outdoor terrace, non smoking, smoking. We were on the outdoor terrace with many plants that give a sense of freshness and that is nice when it's not hot at night. The food is pretty good, service was a bit rushed, actually had to tell the waiter to wait to bring the dessert. In general it is a place that is enjoyed.
