Excellent food, even better staff. Do you want to try something different? A very warm South American welcome, with some traditional food, empanadas, churros and much much more. Ask for Christian, Anthony abd Valeria.

First we were pointed to our table by the bar staff then after the waitress came with the menus, drinks were not offered and we ended up with 2 entrees when telling... More

We don't usually respond to a review but when the story is not said fairly, it's appropriate to speak outside the story. First of all, we clearly remember that you had ordered a serving of Beef Empanada which comes in two pieces, but unfortunately due to a very busy lunch & dinner service we only had one piece left and...

Wonderful restaurant. Empanadas were my favourite tapas but prawns and raw fish fantastic too. Highly recommend the speciality dish. All the meat cooked to perfection. Seasoned so well. Amazingly tasty. Dessert was Churros for two of us wonderful. The other had the speciality and loved that too. Service was amazing very friendly, fast and made everyone feel very welcome. Thankyou

We have just waddled back to our hotel room after dining at Che Chorizo. What a delight, very generous portions, zingy flavours, meats cooked to perfection, and excellent service. I wish this was our local.
