Every time I visit Buenos Aires, I love to go and have "lomo mariposa" at lunch, with my best friend there. The service y good and the salad bar is excellent; nice fresh bread; but the best is always the beef!

Nice salad bar, good service and beautiful ambience. The meat ordered at the table was not very tender. For Argentinian standards its poor to serve a meat of that quality. 1 of the dishes was exchange, but the employee was no particular concern about it....More

Nice place, good meat, generous portions, do share! We liked the mollejas and matambrito de cerdo. The salad bar is OK; I think it was better when I went there before, but it is not bad at all.
