Horrible!! First of all it looked like it was runned by children. Annoyingly going up and downs the stairs where it seems that the kitchen is upstairs. Very slow to be lunch time since we were the only ones at the restaurant. We tried some mushroom that looked like they came from a can and were not fresh. Order a... More

On my wife's daughters recommendation, I took my wife there for lunch on her birthday. We spotted the restaurant but had to circle the block one time to get parking. The restaurant is hard to spot. It is across the street from the restaurant Ararbia. The restaurant is super clean, nice and cool. It is small. The food was fantastic!... More

Service was excellent and the food was very good. Only advice is to call ahead. We were guided by this address and it was off. It's not on Calle 8 but Calle 5. Enjoy!

This restaurant is located near our hotel Hampton in Boca Grande Neiborwood. We went there in a cloudy day that we cant go to downtown. We read good things about restaurante but the taste of food that we ordered: one costilla Gaucha and one baby beef, were just regular.

This is a very nice option for fine cuisine at reasonable prices in Bocagrande. Went with my family and had a very nice New Year's dinner. The service was very good and food well presented and delicious.

We had a great time! The meat was very tasty, wine selection was good too. Awesome service, overall we had a fantastic dinner. Location is also great since it's located on a Main Street, and we took a nice walk after dinner. Highly recommended!

We all were surprised by the excelent taste of the "costillitas argentinas", the special dish of this nice restaurant. Rounding up with a good wine we had a dinner that we will remember for a long time. In summary: a place we will recommend with pleasure to our best friends!

What an insult to Portenos and the amazing parillas of Argentina. Friends who came through Cartagena, knowing that I have lived for the last seven winters in Buenos Aires asked me to have dinner with them. I hope no one else from Argentina or from anyplace where there is good cuisine has the misfortune to eat here. I do not... More

My friends and i came here to have some meat and wine. Unfortunately, we did not get to order the meat. We selected a bottle of wine, a cheaper one, but when they brought the wine out and started to open it, I could see it was the same brand but one of the most expensive wines on the menu.... More
