I ordered the premium Black Angus Rib Eye (CP19,990 = Australian $44.00), which came with nothing else (just the meat) and it was very disappointing. Even though it was cooked medium, it very dry and tough. I had to get two glasses of water to drink, to help me swallow the steak, as I felt like I was choking. I love my steak, but this was the first time ever that I left steak on the plate.

In addition, my wife ordered filet and received not a nice roundish piece of filet, but a flat strip of steak similar to flank.

Restaurant is totally overrated. This is the first time ever that I have reviewed and rated a restaurant.

Reasonable prices, pisco sour for that price is super!!! A la pobre is a good choice. On the weekends, reservation is recommended.

Terrace table is best - as the main restaurant room is quite big and crowdy/noisy, some menue choices were not available, probably due to many people visiting- and late arrival. Service at an acceptable level, waiter had good knowledge of- and time to explain - the menue. We will certainly return
