“Fun at great price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

The place is really nice and the meat we ordered was amazing. There's a band playing typical Argentinian songs which gives a nice atmosphere to the place. We were in six in the restaurant and we ordered snacks, different cuts of meat, deserts and two bottles of wine and it all came to only 450 reals.

“Excellent evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

We were staying at Iguaca in Brazil and had this restaurant just over the Argentinian border recommended to us. It's easy to get a taxi and crossing the border is quite straightforward and well worth it yo visit this amazing restaurant. The food is delicious but beware the portion size - they are big and it is easy to order too much! The ambiance is lively and the restaurant is nicely decorated, staff are very helpful and we were entertained by two musicians. Of course the cost was also very reasonable.

“DELICIOUS and entertaining meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

The 3 of us had only one night in Iguazu Falls and on the recommendation of our cab driver, selected this restaurant. We chose to eat at one of their outdoor tables, as they were less crowded together than tables inside. Two of us had steaks so tender they could almost be cut with a fork and myself, the flavor-filled fish--all fabulous, along with fried potatoes and ensalada completa. The restaurant was crowded with people having a good time and part of the fun was watching some excellent tango dancers on a small stage in one corner of the restaurant. Wow! It was a great meal with unexpectedly good tango entertainment, topped off with a birthday dessert surprise for me!

“Delicious meat for a good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

During our trip we went there two times to have dinner. Both of them where very good. The meat was very well prepared and tasty and the price is very atractive. The only bad thing is that they are a bit desorganized, on the first day we had to wait for half and our despite having several free tables that needed to be cleaned.

“Worst experience in Argentina”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

After 15 days traveling in Argentina, after many restaurants i have to say this is the worst place ive been in a long time, ive been a restaurant manager for many years and worked in different countries and i have to say this is the worst service i have ever experienced, all waiters have attitudes and long faces, i ordered a provoleta that came cold and hard, when asked the waiter to change it he answered "well it gets cold from the kitchen to the table" (it was summer time), when asked the size of the cut of meat his answer was "for one person"..........hey im not being cheap, im not looking to share i want to know how many grams there are...my wife asked for a glass of wine since shes the only one drinking and doesnt want a full bottle, the answer? "We dont sell glasses only bottles"

And the food was horrible, meat was overcooked, fish was cold, i ended up throwing my meat to a passing dog!

Its a chame cause the place is very nice but its a complete tourist trap, you could tell by the faces of all around that we would not come back here, they even had 3 black outs during dinner , dont waste your time and money in this dump!
