We are regulars. We love sitting outside and having a glass of good red wine with empanadas and their 'provoleta' melted provolone cheese with tomatoes on bread. Last night we stopped for dinner with good friends and asked for the parrillada to share, prawns in prosciutto and a few empanadas. We all loved our dinner. It was flavorful, cooked to... More

Very good food, quiet enough for good conversation and attentive service. This is a must restaurant to keep on your list. Try the mussels...excellent.

The atmosphere is typical of a mall driven restaurant but the service is very friendly and they know how to cook. Both my vegetables (green beans and broccoli) were cooked perfectly. My breaded steak was fine. No complaints. My daughters gnocchi had perfect gulf shrimp. There was a nice trio playing live.

I have to admit upfront that I have had an estancia in Argentina the past 20 years, so I am very familiar with Argentine cuisine. But I will not recuse myself from reviewing an "Argentine" restaurant because of it. We have eaten here consistently since they opened. The food is always good, nice sized portions, and presented well. Even if... More

My son and I eat out a lot whenever I come to visit. This restaurant was a wonderful discovery and we will definitely return. We started with tapas-chicken liver pate, creamy and delicious with thin slices of bread, Empanadas carne suave and the pork special with just the right amount of heat, then moved on to the shepherd's pie and...

We have been traveling and have not been here for a number of months. It was good to return! The service is always great--friendly and helpful. The food continues to be a "high point" of the visit--but, that is the reason you go out out eat! The wine list is very nice and the Malbec options are great, but the... More
