Called in on the off chance at 7.30pm and luckily they could fit us in, but they were fully booked from 9pm The restaurant is run by the couple that own it, and they cooked and served the food. It is gaucho style food, so a limited menu, but don't let that put you off because it was amazing. The... More

The woman in charge simply could not be better. She had an unique behavior for each guest. She was as superb with our kids as to a couple of elderly people. She was indeed the perfect match to the fantastic dishes.

This restaurant has all the superficial bells and whisels, ecclectic decor, attentive staff, warm and cozy enviroment. It's difficult to write a bad review, the folks here are so nice, but one thing is lacking, top notch cooking. When you order a steak, for the menu is limited, and you specify, 'jugoso ma no crudo', you expect to get a... More

We tried quite a few but this was hands down the best food/dining experience/steak and empanadas spot we found. A small but perfect menu, order the bife (and share!) and mushroom bruschetta. Do not leave Bariloche without going here! (And make a reservation!)

Although the menu was small, all our food was very good, especially the mushroom bruschetta and empanadas. Share the beef - there's plenty! The service was very good (although, if you're from the USA, you have to get used... More

Great little restaurant with wonderful small menu. Great skirt steak and empanadas. Good wines at reasonable prices. Very small menu for meat eaters. Very welcoming hosts.

Just spent a lovely evening there. Not at all pretentious. the menu is simple and basic. The proprietors speak excellent English. We had the Empanadas, the mushroom dish, and shared the ribeye steak with salad. The steak weighs circa 440 g or about a pound; plenty for most to share. Highly recommended - and at a quite moderate price!
