Loved the meat, loved the fries, loved the garlic bread, loved the waiters too! 150,000 COP for two delicious steak dinners with 1/2 bottle of wine and choc cake and ice cream for dessert. I think most people in the Poblado area are more interested...More

Great steak every single time. Get the Churrasco. Old school service staff, great location, tucked away. Although I wouldn't suggest anything else but the Churrasco, they're simply the best at it.

Cute neighborhood place with small intimate rooms for dining on a good steak or local fare. Very good sangria too. Best thing was the service which could rival any five star restaurant.
