    For two, we had the beef empanada, 8hr lamb, mash potato, corn with manchego and flan for dessert. Everything was perfection.

    Super long queue. Be sure to gather friends for a reservation. Portions rather small, on the good end of the taste scale. Not fantastic.

    8hr lamb or pork, chorizo, corn, fried brussel sprouts & the blood sausage. Round it off with a glass of Malbec or the banana old fashioned, and you'll be dreaming about this meal for days. YUM.

    Sadly what was good was only the place. The cocktail banana rum was ordinary. The food was bland. I recommend other places around Sydney.

    Amazing... Feels like you're in a Mediterranean plaza. All the meat is cooked the traditional Argentinean way over the coals.

    One of the best restaurants in Sydney. The slow cooked lamb and pork are the obvious stars but every dish here is delicious. Don't miss the banana old fashioned when looking at the drinks menu

    The Wagyu Beef Outside Skirt is a killer, deliciously melting in your mouth and the Brussel Sprouts are not to be missed! Also have a drink at the bar upstairs, great retro latino atmosphere.

    If you're a first timer - start off with chorizo, morcillo, brussell sprouts. For mains, their classic 8-hour pork or lamb roast won't dissapoint. Great cocktails,wines & sherry list. Service is tops!

    Service good, ambiance great, food was a bit disappointing. Sweetbread and slow cooked pig was expensive and a bit of a let down, Wagyu Beef was good though.
  • Reynaldi H.
    Big group make sure everyone is present before queuing. Be aware with the service, waiters seems to ignore the table and takes really long to get attention. Food arrive quickly. And quite delicious !!

    Can't go past the entraña, which I assure you is not an entree. Douse it in chimmichurri and drink it with Malbec. Set your mouth to drool.

    Recommended: veal tongue, suckling pig, fried brussel sprouts. Come at 6pm, rather than 9.30pm, when all the pork will be gone.

    The 8-hr pork is a must. The bread and pate make a very hearty entree. Try the brulee as a dessert, amazing taste. Dishes are pretty filling, don't order too much! Bartenders are real pros.

    Brussle sprouts are a dark horse. Definitely a great addition to a meat dish (the secret is they are fried in oil like sprout chips!)

    Total fuckbags. Don't take bookings. They tell you if you arrive before 7pm you will get a table. So you trek over, arrive before 7 and there's no tables. For the rest of the night. Night ruined.
