Six hours after eating steaks and a salad my partner and I were hit by nausea, vommiting and diahrea. 36 hours later we are just able to function again. This was an expensive meal in more than one sense.

I've been to this place a couple of times. At the very beginning it was pretty good, but as they've grown their quality has decreased, and the service is quite poor too. I went with two friends, and everything we ordered had an issue: one of my friends asked for a steak well-done, and they brought her a medium rare... More

My husband and I love this place! The meat is really delicious (and, almost better than in Argentina)! And also the pastas and salads are top-notch and the waiting staff highly attentive! Try it out and enjoy! 😋

Had lunch here in the heart of the centro of this beautiful city. The meat was delicious, steak comes with a salad and few french fries. No fuss, meat lovers will adore this place.

Good restaurant despite having staff hustle tourists as they walk by. The service is friendly and quick and the selection of food -especially meats- and drinks are excellent. The steak and the pastas were very reasonable but the empanadas stood out. The crust was warm and flaky and the fillings delicious. Worth it just for these babies !

This restaurant is located on a popular pedestrian boulevard in the heart of San Cristobal de las Casas. The staff was very accommodating to our large group arriving without a reservation. The empanadas were excellent and most of our group had steak and were pleased. The service was good and the Mexican wines were excellent.
