Reviewed 8 May 2016

I went there with my girlfriend, because it was recommended in our edition of "Lonely Planet". First of all, the prices where not that cheap, just kind of normal/expensive prices for a restaurant.
The waiter was very rude, not nice to us at all, just threw the plates on our table.
The best part was when we got the receipt, they charged us a third of the price for the meal extra for two sets of utensils (spoons)
And the food was not good, definetely not worth the price and not enough.

I can't believe this is top rated on LP. The staff were unhelpful.... Didn't even bother giving us a menu each. The food was even more appalling. My chicken was served bloody and when we complained the waiter didn't seem to care much. He made it look like it was my fault. No attempt at redress or money off. The parilla meat was poor quality and poorly prepared. Do not go here. LP could do with an update.

Came here as it was top rated in LP. BIG MISTAKE. The parilla meat was really poor quality chewy and with alot of fat. The pasta dish was quite nice but overall the quality of the food was really bad for the price. This would have all been fine until we got the bill... They had tried to overcharge us for our drinks and charged us for the table bread??? When we asked to see the menu again to check the prices we were refused. Eventually we got our hands on another menu to see that we had been overcharged. We questioned the waiter again but by this point he had become quite angry and we weren't up for a big argument in the restaurant so we left.

good & simple restaurant. Initially we thought it looked awkward, and we as Europeans came into a nearly empty place. I asked 4 young South Africans out of doubt how the food was, and we stayed. We came back next day, as we thought it was good, good value, a nice owner, and the place got packed later in the evening.
Nothing fancy, but from better than the first impression, and better than eating in a hotel restaurant. More authentic too.

Staff got put order wrong, steak was chewy and not moist and we. Were kicked out early because they wanted to close. The house wine also tasted of vinegar
