“Real Argentine asado experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

House specialty are not steaks 8not so special), but the typical asado (Argentine barbecue) of chivito (Patagonian baby goat), that you can see sluggishly grilling on live charcoal. A pleasant experience in a pictoresque, old-fashioned and enjoyable restaurant of Buenos Aires, provided with a large choice of good local wines.

“Great Lamb, grilled over fire in entry!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Had a fantastic dinner here. By myself and ordered enough lamb for 4 but truly enjoyed. Had a 1/2 bottle of excellent local wine with it and the wait staff took great care of me and had an excellent chat with the table next to me as they brought out the lamb and a bit of "coals" to keep it warm.

Highly recommend for a fun evening in BA.

“Food is good, but...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

No doubt: was one of the better steaks that I ever eaten. The place is and old fashioned decorated, the waiters are helpful and friendly. However, when I would give the tip, I just had a 100 ARS bank note and ask to waiter to change it for me and he come back telling that note were false. It's a common scam in Argentina, but I never would guess that it could be done in a high level restaurant. Conclusion: go, but take care.
