“Great Dinning Experience!”
Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

Greatly surprised by the warmth of this nice Argentinian couple running their restaurant in the middle of the Caribbean jungle. The food was great, I had a perfectly cooked "al punto" Bife Chorizo (New York Steak). One of my friends had the Ojo De Bife (Rib Eye) which was delicious too! The whole experience left us wanting more, we'll definitely come back to Malbec

Very nice place, food is wonderful as is the service. The owners are very nice people but the quality of the food is the real treat.

“Good Argentenian”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

After eating here, my wife and I were impressed with warmth and friendliness of our patrons. As far as steaks go, there's a lot of variety to choose from - I'm a red meat fan. No complaints here. The service was great and after our meal we were treated to further hospitality when we were given complimentary cocktails for desert! Really friendly genuine folks here.

“Very Good but not Great.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Nice place tucked away in the jungle. The steak was good but unfortunately we had recently had the best steak ever at another local restaurant so Malbec has some very tough competition.

“Oh My - Steak Lovers This Is Your Place!!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

What can I say about the steak at Malbec? We are a family of four steak lovers from the UK, we eat steak every where we go and live next to and frequent a superb local butcher in the UK so we know a good steak when we taste one. And my, this is a good steak. We have three versions of the tenderloin and can say that the peppered version with cheesy potatoes just edges it - soft, dripping with juices, full of flavour. Not just the best steak we ate on our trip, the best steak we've eaten in some time.

The whole evening was presided over by the marvellous Marta and her husband who not only managed to rustle up a couple of off menu banana milkshakes made from her own bananas but also chatted to us about Argentina to the extent it'll probably be our next trip.

Not quite our favourite place to eat in CR, that is El Refugio by a whisker but definitely the best single plate of food we ate during our two week visit to the country.
