This restaurant was a jewel back in the day, but the owners can't continue to rest on those laurels. The place needs a good cleaning, and the meat has to be better. It's hard to ruin chicken breast, but they did. The churrasco? Tough and...More

Typically an Argentinian Meat restaurant that shares Puerto Rican food; but that where the similitude ends. It has photos & autographs of nearly the whole farandole history of PR.

This is one of those places that if you don't know, you will miss it. It is inconspicuously placed along a side neighborhood in the business district of Hato Rey. Even if you get to it, the outside look may detract you away. But way...More

Great empanadas de carne. Above average service. Interesting atmosphere. Suggest anything but the churrasco.

This is the best steakhouse in San Juan! Try Churrasco con Tostones! It has the largest collection of local artists memorabilia. Any day, at anytime you might be sharing an excellent conversation with a Federal Judge, or an Icon Latino Artist. The Deli staff? Simply...More

Visited this restaurant on a weekend to have a nice dinner and nice time with my wife and other family members. Food and service was good. Everyone had meat. I have been there a couple of years before and the ambiance is still the same.

I have been a customer of this restaurant for many years, and consider it one of the best Argentinian restaurants in San Juan. The restaurant's walls are filled with pictures of (mostly Puerto Rican) artists, the ceiling tiles are painted in the shape of stars...More

I found this restaurant only by driving by it and seeing the full parking lot and the sign Argentine in the name. I decided to give it a try. The only similarity to a New York deli is the many signed pictures on the walls and the stars on the ceiling with famous people's signatures as well. The churrasco and Chorizo I had were incredible good, made even better with the two cimichanga sauces that came with it. The mango cheese cake was also very good. The menu was vast, and it looked like everythng that came out of the kitchen was spectacular. Obviously this is a well known local place, far from the tourist frequented restuarants but in a nice business district. This place is a Find!
