“Superb...have a break from tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

This restaurant was perfect. The empanadas and steak were the best. We also had a salad which was great. If you are looking for steak during your stay in Barca, then this is your place.

We sat outside, but inside was perfectly o.k as well. Our waiter spoke very little English, but really appreciated our attempts at broken spanish.

We loved it here. The prices were very reasonable.

“Great food and lovely staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Typical Argentine food but done very well with that attention to detail that many restaurants lack. Service with a smile from people who obviously enjoy what they do. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

“Meat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We visited here when growing tired of the endless amount of tapas in Barcelona. Both me and my girlfriend had the tenderloin and we both agreed that it was cooked to perfection!

We had tried to make a reservation via their homepage the same day, but when arriving they could not find it. Since there was free tables we fortunately could be seated instantly. The personnel was really helpful and funny and made us both laugh and feel welcome.

When leaving we felt like we had robbed the place since we only ended up paying just above €40 for a meal consisting of two tenderloins together with a beer and a sangria. When we go back to Barcelona we'll be back here!

“The best steak I have ever eaten”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

If you enjoy eating steak and find yourself in Barcelona then this Argentinian restaurant is an absolute must. My husband and I both chose the beef tenderloin (fillet steak) and it was, quite simply, the best I have ever eaten. We asked for it rare and it was cooked to perfection. The staff were friendly and helpful and, although we were kept waiting for a while, took the trouble to apologise (even though we were perfectly happy and hadn't complained).

“Steak doesnt get any better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

Booked online months before and had a coutesy call the day before. Very warm welcome. Food all home made and delicious. Not a cheap night out but very gpod value. It all tastes so good and the steaks literally melt in your mouth and are trimmed to perfection. If you want a good meal go here.
