The food was beautiful, very tasty and good selection of Argentine wines. Dinner arrived promptly and was well seasoned. Quite small interior although- lots of room outside. Waitress was lovely- very welcoming.

Went to this place because my husband loves barbecue (one of his favourites is a similar place in Auckland) and this had good reviews on TripAdvisor. On our first visit, we tried all the meats and the loaded fries. On our second visit 2 days...later, we had all of our favourites... i.e. everything we had on our first visit. Highlight for me was the steak with the salsa. Highlight for him was the pork belly. The young woman serving us was horrified when she asked us how our meal was and we looked at the empty plates and told her it was terrible. 100% recommend this place!More

I pass this little place on my way to work almost every day and today was a day to finally try it out. For my first experience I took Parrillada and it is awesome to say the least. Finally a good nay premium bbq flavor....I see myself trying every item on the menu eventually.More

We have been bouncing around for the last few years for a good BBQ restaurant and this is the place! Amazing Empanadas and BBQ plater is the best one we ever had in NZ. Tiny restaurant with good price and spectacular food.

Yum yum!! A quick lunch with a business colleague with a cleansing ale. The food was very tasty and the potato wedges with cheese and bacon was superb.

We had lunch here a few days ago and I sank my teeth into one of the best pork burgers ever. Soft succulent pork meat with a delicious sauce and oh, those crunchy crackling bits on top, the whole thing was just fantastic. Service was...super friendly, we loved this little place and will be back next time we are in Christchurch.More

We went in during the lunch time rush and were wondering if we should stay when we realised that a fair chunk of the customers waiting were from Argentina. Deciding that if they chose the place it had to be good - we waited, got...a table and placed the order. Thank God we did. Yum! We had the parrillada and the salad which had beetroot and feta. The meat was just beautifully made. Each meat with its own flavour and so succulent! The house salad was to die for and we could have just had a bowl of that and been happy. Service was wonderful for how busy they were and we will definitely be going back. Sorry, only remembered to take the pic after the first serving was in my tummy. Lol 😂More

We asked for the share plate and a burger and all the food was delicious!! High quality meats and enough to share among two people. The sauces were all very tasty too and we tried the empanadas too. Very good too! I was a busy...Saturday night at the river, so the food took a bit of time, but the staff were very nice and were working super hard to get all the orders done.More
