“Criticizing restaurants prices”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Two of us went to La Virundela on a Wednesday night at 7:30 - no one was there and no one ever came in before we left at 9:00. The prices are not $15-$30 as stated. We split a rib eye, split a caprese salad and ordered their special French fries. We each had 2 glasses of wine, coffee and flan.....the bill was $60 EACH........we will not recommend this restaurant. Service was great and ambience quiet. No children allowed. We rechecked the bill twice to make sure we were not mistaken with the price EACH.

“Wonderful restaurant”
Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

We had a wonderful meal at La Virundela on February 26th. The steaks were awesome, the salad fresh and flavourful and the wine delicious. The server was attentive, professional and friendly. We were offered a tour of the grill area and entertained by the talented chef. The entire evening was an experience not to be missed. A and J Dean, Ontario, Canada

“Very unpleasant experience”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

We found out in tripadvisor as top 10 and decided to come in; there were only 2 tables and the bread arrived 30 minutes after sitting.

Then dishes arrived; they were just ok except for the cannelloni that was actually crepes and not pasta. Bad!

Service was terrible, specially one of the waiters/ maybe owner... Very arrogant!

I strongly suggest NOT to come; instead Tomato is another great Argentinian option.

I believe that service is the most important thing if you own a place.
Watch out!!

We had our last dinner out in San Miguel de Allende here and were not disappointed. It was superb. We will visit this restaurant again on our next trip to SMA.

“Where's the Crowd?”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

Great steaks and heart of palm salad. Charming owner came out to chat. Love the place and was puzzled why it was so quiet on a Wednesday. Beef far superior than most in the U.A. By all means go.
