For the main course, I ordered the Blue House Lamb chops - this came with three lamb chops. All the food was very flavourful and portion size was reasonable.

They said the appetizers and dessert were good but the main dishes were amazing! On the pricier side but great for special occasions is you like seafood.

I went the first time about a year and a half ago and I was very impressed with it so I went back again and again but seems like I get more and more disappointed at each return... This time, we ordered two different dishes, one curry and a pasta. Garnishes on both dishes are petty much exactly the same... They server complimentary bread - which are burnt, and I mean very burnt as they were blackened all around... I mean it happens that oven was overlooked, but just DON'T SERVE IT... Anyhow it will be our last visit.

The great variety of Latin cuisine on the menu is highlighted with outstanding seafood dishes. We were treated to royal service throughout the meal and were even brought a dessert with a candle when it was learned that it was our anniversary. While enjoying all of this we were entertained by a highly talented Chilean singer/guitarist. Don't be fooled by its outside appearance in a tiny strip mall in northwest Calgary. It has been completely renovated in recent years and is another world inside. It will definitely not be another 20 years until our next visit!

The server was very attentive and the menu provided a broad selection of seafood, beef and chicken. Despite the change of ownership a while back the quality of food remains consistent and is a reliable stand by for dining.

The service was slow as there was only 1 server for the entire restaurant ( the right side was full)

Boy were we surprised. Our dinner was excellent. I had the lamb chops and my husband had the Argentinean Steak. Both dinners were so excellent - melt in your mouth. We will certainly be back. The restaurant has been nicely redecorated also.
