Is for this restaurant!!! The steak on the stone just never disappoints!!! Friendly service and good food, just about what you need from a restaurant isn't it? A very unassuming place from the outside but go in, you will not be disappointed!

The grilled beef steak was so good that it almost made me cry of happiness. Definitely go for the beef grilled steak, medium rare. Beef picanha was also very very good, but definitely the grled beef steak was the star of the table.
