I got to town late on a Sunday evening and was happy that this restaurant was close to my hotel. It's big and cavernous inside, but wasn't too loud, even though it was quite busy. Live music consisted of traditional guitar, so was nice and not overpowering. I ordered grilled surubi, a large river catfish. It was cooked well, with... More

We got as a recommendation of our driver when visiting the Argentinian side of the waterfalls and it did not disappoint. The meat was of good quality and well prepared. A reservation was needed as the place quickly filled up after opening even while it was a weekday.

Terrible Parilla! Totally over-grilled meat (pls see the picture attached)! Quality of beef was also rather low. The best thing in the place was the salad and grilled vegetables. I did have the tongue a a stater - not too bad. But if you want to be disappointed with meat in Argentina, this is the place. I really recommend NOT... More

There's so many good restaurants around, and this one I do not recomend. The "chorizo" was so differente from the others, it did not tasty good, I coudn't finish eating and it comes it a very strange sauce.

Fun to visit one but not whilst your on a diet. The portions are heaped but tasty nonetheless. The rolled and slow cooked beef is to die for.

Mediocre food compared for the price. Waiters have no patience as soon as they discover you don't speak Spanish. Just want to give you their "house special" and point with their hands that it's extremely great. When it comes out it's a regular steak with a overtly sweet sauce that is not tasty. Wouldn't go back there.

I think this place was overrated. Although it was fun and decent food it is not one of the best steaks I've had in Argentina as I understood from other reviews. There's dancing and live music which is both kinda taggy and kinda cool and original.

I was there with some friend by night. My wife recommended us to go there. It is a nice place (almost full). They can arrange the tables to support large groups. Well, we were there to taste "Chourizo beef" (typical meat in Spanish-speaking countries in South America): The steak was very juicy and tasty. We also asked for simple salads... More

Close to Brazilian border is a very good option to know a authentic Argentinian stake. The chouriço meat should be your first plate. High quality meat. Don't forget to pay in pesos because is very expensive in other currencies.
