Try the lamb grilled by the special gaucho way, on 'the cross'! Delicious meat, smokey flavor and served in abundant portions.

They prepared the food carefully and in a slowly manner that makes it so good. You can see how they cook the lamb when you pass in front of the restaurant over Del Libertador avenue. This technique is called "cordero a la estaca".

Decided on this restaurant because it was recommended to us, the prices seemed fair (no cubierto to boot), and we were enticed by the lamb on display. We wanted to share an order of the cordero asado, but our waiter said it would not be enough for 2 people, so we ordered 2 portions. The portions were huge! We could... More

I visited this restaurant after a local market holder recommended to me when I said i was looking for some good lamb. The restaurant was buzzing when i went in and I had to wait a short while for a table which was encouraging that it was so busy - it had to be good. I was seated and quickly... More

This is a simple but excellent parrilla restaurant. The meat is succulent and the service very good. The quality of the food is comparable to fancier restaurants with double the price.

We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant. I had the Cordero Patagonico and my husband had a steak. They were both excellent. They way you order salad is a bit odd. You pay for each added vegetable...and make sure you order the lettuce separately, otherwise you'll get a 'salad' of nothing but a huge bowl of shredded carrots. We... More

We had a lovely dinner at Mi Viejo recently after striking out at 2 other steak places--the first steak house we went to didn't have filet of flank steak that night (you know the feeling when you have some particular food in mind and can't get it, like getting to the pizza place only to find that it's closed), or...

Great restaurant to try "Cordero Patagonico a la estaca" (Patagonic grilled lamb), a classic dish in this area: you have to taste it. Friendly staff, cozzy place and reasonable prices.

We came here after we read a recommendation on a local site.. We've had a fillet and a lasagna. I've ordered the fillet to be done medium, but it arrive over done and close to medium well. It was done without any seasoning and had tasted only of meat (I mean that in the bad sense, like bland meat). The... More

Get here early as it fills up quickly, We were 3rd group in line. By the time we had our mains, the place was jammed and they were turning away groups. We had the Parillijada - mixed grill. So much food...it is supposed to be for 3 people, but it was enough to feed this family of 4 twice. We... More
