We had a very nice lunch here in April. Food was tasty and the margarita's were great. There are tables outside facing the Mercado, so you can see the rest of the world go by.

We wanted steaks so came here. I had the rib eye rare which was excellent. My wife had the filet steak on the bone, ordered rare but it came well done. We sent it back and it came back properly cooked.

Went to El Bife for the first time in 2015. Had my best steak ever, and I grew up eating Nebraska beef. Service was excellent with friendly waiters. Their Flank Steak is my new all-time favorite steak. We will visit again this year.
