The chicken, steak and baked potato are favourites. Recommend making reservations. Food is cooked on an open grill in the restaurant. Everything is delicious. A great spot!

Food was average - big open grill. Empanadas were good, can tell are homemade. Best was the PIna Colada, not very boozy but delicious fresh flavor. Open air restaurant, cash only.

We came to Las Piedras on a family trip and all of us ordered the Argentinan steak. It was the best steak we’ve ever had (yes, the best ALL of us have had)! I fully recommend the steak as the main dish and for dessert,...More
