This is the place to go for a barbecue in La Boa neighborhood. Nice bife de chorizo a la mariposa, potato fries were amazing, and so was the dulce de leche pancakes.

It is an amazing experience with great food and in the heart of a traditional colorful neighborhood. It is a small place so you may have to wait to be seated but it is worth it. We had the milanesa, the suprema de pollo and raviolis. Definitely try them all.

We were at the restaurant on the Saturday of Easter Sunday. There was an hour wait to get a table, about a third of whom were tourists. Once seated after calling the waiter over, he only partially took our order before he disappeared. It took much doing before we were able to get him back. The food was oily and bland. The bill overcharged us and had to be corrected. The waiter would not bring us over more chimichuri. In general miserable service with slightly better food.

Great food and service! This is a local restaurant with so much history. My boyfriend has been here many times and his stories and promise of its allure couldn't be any more true! A must for the adventure type seeking true local cultural and flare! The food is a 10!
