As a few other recent reviewers have commented on, the service here was nothing to write home about. Our server was nice enough, but he screwed up my order. I didn't care that much, as I was happy sitting outside, drinking una cerveza, and chatting...More

This is a casual pub-style restaurant where you can get a good meal for a good price. The empanadas where nice and the traditional Argentinian salad simple, but fresh and tasty. We shared this with a crumbed, schnitzel style beef accompanied by mashed potato, which...More
