“All the meat - and more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

A group of us went here for a meal, some of the local guys recommended the place. The building and decor has more character than a lot of the places we have seen while in Toluca. The staff were helpful, attentive and service was very good. By UK standards there were a lot of staff on hand.

The food was fantastic. One of the local guys ordered for us and we had several platters of various things turn up. Delicious pasties with cheese and spinach, or meat filling, a cheese soufflé which was delightful. The main event was the meat and we had a variety of cuts of beef, lamb and chicken. All was cooked to perfection and had great flavour and texture.

I was almost unable to manage a desert, these are pretty epic sized.

I didn't pick up the bill myself, so can't comment on the price.

Fantastic venue. I will come again when I am next in Toluca for sure

“Great Steakhouse!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great place, food is also fantastic and prices are pretty fine. Ask for the fish of the day (grilled) if you don't want or like meat, it was awesome. Enjoy!

“Great atmosphere and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014

Nice cosy ambience, food was great and service friendly. Slightly expensive by Mexican standards. Expect to pay between 40-60 euros for a meal including beers, starters and mains.

“Never Disapoint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

Any single person I have take there has always rated this restaurant as one of the best they have ever been, I usually get Bife de Chorizo, don't miss the Papas Soufle, the wyne selection is great too, if you are in Toluca try this one is not cheap but it worth every penny you pay.
