    If You're not interested in meat quality this is the place for you. As I do understand the price of meat has gone up. They still need to make a profit. The buffet salad bar was decent. The Server was super friendly and nice. The Desserts that were included was really good. If you are on a budget and like all you can eat this is definitely the place for you.

    Nice salad bar, meat selection was subpar, service was slow. Took 30 minutes to get the bill. They only have one type of beef and they give you a thin slice without any flavour. Over priced for what you get. I’ve been to better all you can eat Argentine restaurant. The Brazilian steak house would be a way better option.

    It's a very over priced buffet. The restaurant has a fast food like ambience. The staff is kind,food is ok (nothing mind blowing).The night we were there they offered one cut of beef,they had pork,chicken,sausages on the grill. The alcohol free kids smoothie with water was insanely overpriced with It's 15$ (it costs more than a cocktail). Not a pleasant experience.

    We had reservations so no wait time! Very spacious not crowded! Great selections on the salad/veggie bar! Loved all the options. The grill was a little difficult because the chefs didn’t speak English so they weren’t able to answer my questions. But that’s okay I figured it out and got try a few yummy pieces. My only complaint was that the air wasn’t working so it was super hot! But our server was really sweet, helpful and apologized for the inconvenience. It is a little pricey, but we new that beforehand. Would definitely recommend to other travelers!

    They open 15min late from our reservation. When we came in 12.15pm,. The food was not ready to serve yet. We have to wait another 10min. Meat buffet was ready but lacking of taste, the guy on meat section was pretty convincing and serve us good. The server try his best to do his job but the rest of the buffet not ready for all guest to eat. Overall this restaurant is mediocre. With $31 per person, the option of food not so much.

    Las tradicionales entradas argentinas (lengua, Vithel, matambre, etc.) muy buenas pero la carne toda muy cocida, dura y sin sazón. Los postres bien. Creo que la relación precio calidad, queda a deber, mucho dinero para lo que ofrecen.

    Ample amounts of food and drink. An exciting venue full of energy and hospitality. Right on the bay in Miami, this Argentinian restaurant beckons like a sirens call. Absolutely fabulous and I wish I’d actually eaten there. Open table says I ate there so I figured leave a positive review. It’s looks great on the website. Enjoy!

    Boat Show weekend. Fish was wonderful but the meats were tough. The salad bar was real nice. Our server was awful. We had to finally ask the hostess if we even had a server! Wouldn’t recommend for that reason.

    Birthday celebration before a concert. Food was just okay. Restaurant is buffet style. If you go to the grill for steak they literally give you one small piece so you have to make multiple trips to the grill. Waiter brings sides. Pasta salads and salad bar were okay. Nothing to write home about. Not a whole lot of attractive options on the buffet. Really didn’t feel like the value was there for the price. We could have paid about the same at another steak house and had been served and experienced a better meal. The place needs a good deep cleaning. Save money and order your food at the small restaurant that is just outside of this restaurant.

    The hot food from the grill was cold ( potatoes, meat ) and a majority of the meat was well done. The shrimp salad in the cold section was way overcooked, no flavor at all. With approximately 30 foot ceilings and wood all around, the sound ( music ) echoes and was loud and unbearable. I will say however that my wife complained of the meat being tough and I also agreed from the grill and the waitress offered filet mignon from the kitchen. The filet was good, tender and guess what? Hot! We mostly ate salads, can't go wrong with spinach, greens, etc. For eating salads at $39. 95 per person it did seem a little high in price.

    My husband and I go to this place every year to celebrate his bday because he loves the grilled meats. Every year though, it seems the service and the quality of food declines. This year really hit rock bottom IMO. There were hardly any guests there and lots of servers, so you would think you would get taken care of, we waited about 20mins until a server came over and he asked us what we would like to drink and that’s it. So we went to get our meats and we didn’t see any servers until the end of eating. No one offered us any dinner rolls/fries/or refill of drinks. It was the most bizarre experience. The meats was tough, not a lot of choices, the grilled veg was undercooked. It was just bad.

    Pretty good food and value for being bayside Miami. Lots of choices at the grill and salad bar. They offer fries, potatoes and rice too. Most of the meats were juicy and flavorful, some maybe a bit dry and over cooked but that’s to be expected. Loved that they had chimichurri at the bar. Service got pretty slow once they got busier though. We waited quite a while for refills, dessert, and our check. Everyone was friendly and you can’t beat getting a whole bottle wine per person! Will be back!

    The waitress forgot about us, she just did not come and we had to stand, after 20 minutes, to go to order the dessert. The tip is 15% included, we asked to remove it and we gave it to another waiter, who was nice, that came to assist us. Food is good, choice moderate. The elder man at the barbecue is moody, he became nice after we left a tip. It's a place to go, good value, but service should improve. The location is great.

    This was the best meal we had while visiting the area. We paid around $35 for all you can eat, which included a bottle of wine (2nd bottle was no cost either). You could get beer or soda instead of wine. The meal featured various meats - tilapia, beef short ribs, steak, pork loin, pork ribs, chicken, bacon wrapped stuffed pork, and more. There was a salad bar and various vegetables from the grill - roasted potatoes, tomato halves with cheese melted, grilled onions, and a few more options. The server can also bring mashed potatoes or fries if you wanted. All COVID guidelines were being followed. Our server fixed the salad while we told him what we wanted on the plate. You picked up a plate at the grill and told the cooks what you wanted, and they would put it on your plate. Various desserts were offered too. We got flan and cheesecake. Both were great. It was my boyfriend's birthday, and they brought out an individual cake with a candle and happy birthday written on the plate. It was delicious too. The service was excellent. Our server was Mister. He was awesome, funny, and attentive but no overly so. He recoginized when our glasses were getting low and promptly filled them. The restaurant is in the Bayside Marketplace on the 2nd level. It is on the end near the ferris wheel. Our table was by the window looking out over the marina. We could watch the boats, water taxi, and all the people going by. It was the perfect date spot. We will definately be back!
