“Typical Parilla where Locals go”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

A Typical Parilla where Locals go. Service could be with a bit of more charme, but considering the amount they need to work since the restaurant is always very full, pretty OK. It is absolutely top if you consider the value for the money.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Had the best meal of our stay in Buenos Aires in here - superlative steaks with a vast salad and delicious creamed potatoes (not mash, more like a Dauphinoise, absolutely gorgeous!)
This is not a fancy restaurant but is extremely popular (book a table - by 10pm on the Saturday night we visited it was packed, even though the place is huge!)
Don't go expecting linen tablecloths and hushed conversations - do go expecting great food and a brilliant atmosphere. Recommended!

“Hair and bug in food...”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Not the best start to a meal. Bread had a hair in it and the salad had a bug in it. I was willing to overlook these items but when my entree of lasagna came it was so horrible I couldn't even eat it. Can't say anything good about this place.

“Great authentic food, big portions.”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

We went here for dinner had the lomo steak with mushroom cream sauce on top. With mashed potatoes and sautéed chard. Delicious and very large portions. Seems the locals go there a lot. Informal place but great.
