El Falcon was a wonderful dinner. Craft beer, a range of excellent dishes, and great live music. Their Argentinian steaks were mouth watering. The whole experience was fantastic.

The grilled polenta app and grilled veggies main were delicious. We rarely eat meat these days but once in while I’ll have a steak and theirs was excellent. Good charcoal flavor and spices all around.

We enjoyed a very chilled out evening at this laid back and friendly Argentinian restaurant. The beers were excellent, including a selection of chilled real ales which went down well.
The burgers were delicious and I would recommend the octopus tacos right off the grill.

I had the grilled vegetable plate (around $11), a passion fruit smoothie, and a bit of a companion's polenta (around $6 I think). The food was absolutely scrumptious and inventive! It wasn't just a plate of grilled veggies: you had purees and sauces and something like a flatbread... there was so much going on on one plate. Plus, you could get totally full on that plate, no need for an appetizer.

But if you do get an appetizer, the polenta is amazing. It is beautifully presented, with its topping of vegetables and sauce. The smoothie was fresh and delicious.

A companion proclaimed the beef here better than the lamb. Whatever the case, a definite "yes" for a place to eat in Santa Teresa!
