    The meal here was ridiculously good. The reputation they have is actually understated. Outstanding entire menu

    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.

    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.

    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.
