This is an excellent restaurant and we tried several in the area. The food is fresh, delicious, and the dessert is amazing. Make sure to try the brownie with ice cream. Their tuna steak, chicken salad, and shrimp were also excellent. This restaurant would get 5 stars if they only had a fan circulating air! It can get a bit hot because they have a huge fire grill running throughout the evening. Sit in the back of the restaurant to avoid the dusty main road and hot grill. The house white wine is a good choice.

Had dinner here with friends and the tuna was recommended. It was cooked in an open fire grill and was perfect. Seasoned just right and everything. We ate everything! And the staff was friendly and accommodating. The price is really good too for the quality.
**side note, they chill their red wine but if you ask they will open a room temp bottle.**

Important to highlight the staff's dedication - this place gets hot! Santa Teresa is already scorching, and this parillada is the real deal, with the grill and open fire. You can't miss it on the main road, and it is very popular with tourists, but don't let that deter you if you are turned off by crowds. The food is really good. We shared a combo of mixed meat between four people and it was really worth it. There is wine, but it's BYOB.

Get the ribs and chicken combo!! The staff are lovely and the food is great.
Its an Argentinian restaurant and one of the only places that does nice wine in Santa Teresa.....they don't serve beer but they'll tell you that there is a supermarket just down the road if you wanna grab a few.....think they let you keep it in their fridge with no corkage which is very sound!

Delicious ... Gets hot in restaurant because of open fire, we got ours take away and ate on the action at home. Very popular for good reason.
