This is a proper Argentinian restaurant with very good food and wide choice of wines. The meats were properly cooked and the choice of sides was great.

You have to be a carnivore to enjoy this restaurant - there is very little other than beef on offer. We gather there by a recommendation. 8 of us order steaks, vegetable and wine. Overall it was good.

One of the most innovative restaurants in the business area of Madrid, this restaurant resounds with the city atmosphere, bringing together a mix of cold materials and warm lighting. This is a real oasis in the heart of the business district where you can enjoy fantastic classics of traditional Argentinean cuisine from the grill of the skilled chefs. You can see some truly striking decorative elements such as the central corridor's forest of bamboo made of steel. Towards the end, a glass terrace presents you with spectacular views of the Picasso Tower and Azca Gardens.
