While not a romantic venue, the food aways wins. Family atmosphere with amazing food!!! They even have a butcher on site that you can bring some home. Cook/owner comes to make sure everything is up to standard and sooo nice!

Had the combo meat dish. Sorry to say all the meat was Tough which was a surprise. Presentation and service was very good as well as the prices. I'm an American and used to tender meat, this was far from it.

We also offer a wide variety of Argentinian products, from yerba mate (unique tea blend) to dulce de leche in various brands at the best prices. We welcome you to discover our shop and find the authentic delicacies you need. Our goal is to provide best quality and service at an unbeatable price.
