“My favorite steakhouse in Guatemala City”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Order the "Pirex Mixto", 1 1/2 pounds of "lomito" and "puyaso" steaks. The flavor is fantastic.

Ask for "chirmol" to spread on the steaks. It's a Guatemalan salsa that is ideal for steaks.

The garlic bread is very good but the potato derivatives are mediocre.

It is 2 miles from the airport and 1 mile from the Dai Nonni Hotel where we stayed.

“Freat Steak and Customer Service”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Tou can always count on a great steak
and service. Maybe thats because the owner
is always on the floor.

The steaks are always done to your order
and are perfect. Tender, juicy and succulent.

One of the best steak houses in the City.

Prices are very reasonable which makes
the value outstanding.

“Great Food”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

You will love to eat at this place. It has an awesome theme, you can enjoy the great meat, and after your meal you will enjoy the delicious desserts and the amazing coffee they serve. If you enjoy great food and visit Guatemala, don't miss the opportunity to try it.

“Best stake...!!!”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Every time that my partner and i want to have a really nice stake we always end up in La Media Cancha, there is no doubt is the best stake you can find in Guatemala city, the service is nice and the food is not that expensive. It can be very crowded so be prepared to wait at least 15mins before your table is ready. The parking lot is a block away from the restaurant, just be careful because it can be a little bit dangerous in that area.

“No frills, great meat”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

One of the best steak houses in town. Very Argentinian style. The owner, and Argentinian ex soccer player, is always over there, looking after the quality of the meat. More family oriented, and the place might not be spectacular, but you go there for great steak....and that is what you are going to get, at a reasonable price. Service is top quality too.
