In a nice simple ambient, the grill with Uruguayan beef, natural, open fed, non feedlot animals, is what you should choose.The service is very good

Last night we chose this restaurant for dinner, primarily because it was nearby but also because it was well reviewed. Whilst it wasn't an epicurean adventure, our meat (baby beef) was tender and tasty. It came with a green salad and was generous enough to...More
