Extremely tender cordero patagonico (lamb). A fork was sufficient to get to the meat; there was no need for a knife. Wonderful bread but you need to try the cordero (lamb) empanadas. Delicious.

Amazing, that’s the only adjective I have to describe the Patagonian lamb. Perfectly cooked, soft taste of the lean meat. Service was amazing, the perfect complement for a 5 Star dinner.
