A casual restaurant serving Argentinian beef. Great options, delicious cuts of meat well made with great accompanying wines. Well priced. It is a good option if you are craving a good steak. Book on La Fouchette and note the discount if you eat early.

I'm a regular customer there! I love their meat! So juicy! Real Argentinean meat! Good empanadas, delicious panqueques con dulce de leche. The place is pretty. Nicest servers ever! Buy some alfajores in their little store before leaving!

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
