“Birthday dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

We went here to celebrate my birthday, it was our first time. Our server was not very good but luckily the food was. We didn't understand the process and extra charges but the server wouldn't explain. We told him it was my birthday and he did nothing special. :( The grill was loaded with a variety of meats & veggies and the salad bar was full of unique cold sides. The only hot sides were sweet potato fries, french fries, or mashed potatoes and the server had to bring those.The placemat in front of us said a dessert was included but once we got the bill they were $3 more each. The food was tasty but the service was no good. They have a fly issue too not to good around the cheeses.

“Food value and healthy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

Who'd a thunk it! Great tasting fresh food and a salad bar unlike any I've ever seen. Wood grill cooking at least 4 types of meat just you want it. Plus seafood on weekends. For just a few dollars more per person, your bottomless drinks too.

“First time trying Argentinian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Looking for something different, we tried the Knife. Different type of food, I'd says little high priced for self serve, but tasty.
Our server was very efficient, attentive and informative.
I'm not a big meat eater, so I probably wouldn't return just based in that. Decent restaurant

“Full of bugs that bite; scary food;”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Move on - this place is full of biting bugs - even our waiter apologized. They bit my dinner companion's ankle (maybe food was rotting under the table) and left him with 20 eraser-sized bites that oozed for 5 days. The food is slop - the pepper seeds and stems were butchered along with the flesh. Horrible experience.

“A lot of food for your dollar!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is an Argentinian steakhouse. Set up a little different...rather than the meat brought to you, you stand in line to have it carved. For $30, it was all you can eat plus a bottle of wine per person. The salad bar was fantastic, though the shrimp cocktail lacked flavor. The meat was good, but not great, though the sausages were amazing. The red wine that came with the meal was surprisingly good (Spanish red). This dinner was the first we had in Orlando where I didn't rationalize spending a lot by saying "well, it's Orlando and we are on vacation". Worth every penny! Almost forgot, the ground beef in pastries that they bring around to your table are delicious!
