We made the mistake of visiting this truly awful resteraunt whilst visiting Rosario and after reading the very positive 2 year old review in Time Out. Something has clearly happened to the Chef in the last 2 years.. The tapas we ordered; mushrooms in ham, prawns in garlic, and cheese in filo pastry were all very very average. The prawns were overcooked and the cheese in filo was a lumpen tasteless mess. We moved on to Bife de Chorizo and Bandiola de cerdo. The bandiola was just about edible but overcooked and with tasteless potatoes on the side. The Bife was truly ghastly and the meat on the turn - eg 'off'. When a polite complaint was made to the head waiter, he erupted with fury and said we were wrong to complain and there was nothing wrong with it - all without even looking at or trying the offending article. Given his aggressive attiitude we asked for the bill and told him we were not paying for the Bife, he insisted we paid and the bill arrived including the Bife. We maintained out refusal to pay and, with voices rising he finally returned with a new bill without the Bife - which we paid. The attitude of the Head Waiter was extraordinary but perhaps forgiveable on the basis I suspect he is confronted by disgruntled diners at every sitting and he is finally losing his patience -but sadly with the wrong people - he should give the Chef a good kicking rather than the customer. A bit of a giveaway as to the quality of this place was perhaps the way the chef wandered about the resteraunt like some celebrity rather than being in the kitchen doing his job. This place is a MUST MISS for anyone visiting Rosario - which by the way - is a beautiful city.
