The little sister to IL Leone Mastrantonio on the same block, this Argentinian parilla (steakhouse) pays tribute to owner Daniel Toledo’s father. If available, try delicious mollejas (sweetbreads) and morcilla (pork blood sausage) with piquant salsa criolla. Finding a vegetarian option in an Argentinian restaurant is usually as difficult as on a cattle ranch in the pampas. But vegetarian appetisers tempt with corn empanadas, quinoa, grilled veggies and provolone with tomato salsa, as well as tasty salads and sides like cauliflower mash and deep-fried baby marrow. But the main ingredient is beef asado, well-aged, tender and grilled to perfection to your order. Steak portions range in price from 200g to 600g for all appetites. The big meaty menu tempts with every possible succulent cut on and off the bone from short rib and rib-eye to T-bone, fillet and a signature sirloin – enhanced by a spicy chimichurri (garlic, parsley and oregano) sauce and papas fritas and salad. It’s the kind of authentic little gem any gaucho will enjoy on a night out on the town.

Drinks
A good wine, beer and spirits list also features Argentinian Malbec wines.

Service
Knowledgeable and helpful on traditional Argentinian dishes, sauces and sides

Ambience
Intimate and discreet with plush leather seating and warm wooden tones.

And…
Enjoy an aperitif or digestif in the delightful downstairs bar.

    Excellent service and excellent food. I ordered the Don, 600gram Sirloin on the bone and ate the whole thing. Highly recommended and would definitely go again.
    Delicious! We all ordered the recommended Prime rib steak (400g - R185), which was excellent - their chimichurri is still one of my favourites; the meat was cooked perfectly and the side salad is fresh and tasty. Service was friendly and efficient. Corkage is charged at R50 and only one bottle is permitted per table. Definitely one of my favourite "steakhouses", more so because it doesn't feel like one (decor wise).
    Loved this place - great vibe, tasty steaks and efficient service. When booking, I would suggest requesting a table upstairs, as downstairs is a bit more bar-like, with seating on bar stools at high tables.
    Tiny restaurant with a great vibe, one of those 'best kept secret' places in Cape Town. Excellent steak - we loved the house special, 800g rump Picanha steak served and cut at the table to share. Delicious fries and other side dishes such as the white bean salad, and grilled baby marrows. Tip - on a beautiful evening, ask to be seated on the fairy-light terrace upstairs where they can seat a group of 8 or 10 (if you don't mind the smokers outside).
    Not bad could do with some seasoning on the vegetables and the zucchini fritta were not crispy enough The chef needs to taste before sending out Cauliflower mash also tasteless Meat good Small wine list not but could be better there are some great Argentinian wines on the market Nice space dreadful stairs to upstairs and quite dangerous Perhaps some good vegetables on a skewer could be added for some colour peppers red onions squash courgette,Aubergine on metal would look good
