Very good dinner. I had the argentine rump steak which was tasty and not as expensive as the featured N. American steaks. Served with potatoes and a tomato fritter. The service was quick and polite and the atmosphere was quiet. A good choice.

We went to Pfefferkorn steak house with a larger group. It was good. Their vegetarian vegetable stew is pretty delicious. The only option for our gluten-free group member was the vegan vegetable stir-fry. Prices are on the higher end. In the end, there was a...More
