Came here after 4 years and looking forward to the good experience we’d had before. Not to be - my steak was full of gristle and cold, my wife’s was the rough end of a filet and overall we felt ripped off.

Its a good place to have a dinner. We order a very good barbecue meat. It was very good. The portion was huge and we couldn't eat all. The price was ok. It's not cheap but fair.

Visited here on Tripadvisor reviews and it was as people say. Varied menu with meat, fish, pasta etc. My partner had filet mignon which was good quality and cooked well. I had ravioli which was light and fresh. Service was attentive and professional.

We all ordered pichanha(beef cut) medium rare which came very cooked. Very expensive for small portion. Another tourist trap. Service was nice but like in most places in Brazil, staff don't speak English. Avoid.

Great food, great environment. Tip for the owner, please pay extra attention to service, you need to improve! Options for vegetarians and meat eaters!! Salada Patagonica was great, really good food!

Went for dinner on a Tuesday night, live Tango Night, and had a Tango artist, singing and playing the accordion, giving the place a great ambience. The food was delicious, T Bone steak and Bife Chorizo outstanding, but the salads and roast chicken excellent too!...More

Really enjoyed an evening of terrific tango music. Meat could have been cooked better though. Service poor. Go on Tuesday for the music and worth it then.

The restaurant has a cozy decoration and the service is friendly. Good bruschetta and a great onion soup!
