We came here for dinner at about 10:15pm and were warmly welcomed to a window table.
Ostensibly, this place is known for their Patagonian spit roasted lamb. The spit and the kitchen were visible from the street front. Therefore, we ordered one serve of quintessential spit roast lamb, a salad and a serve of king crab soup for good measure.
We were delightfully surprised to find that the king crab soup was the real star of the night for us! In our experience, most seafood soups are ruined because they are too heavily creamed, starchy and salty. This was different. The soup had lots of king crab meat, the light pink broth was lightly thickened with cream, and delicately seasoned with salt and pepper. The sweetness of the crabs was easily discernible. Yum!!
The spit roast lamb had a crispy exterior and the meat was mostly juicy and tender (although some bits exposed to the fire for longer were a bit dry). Once again, very enjoyable.
The meal was made complete with a wonderful 1/2 bottle of Mendoza Malbec and a serve of flambé rum and apple pancake, as we watched the sun setting over the mountains and San Martin Avenue.
Depsite the fact that some waiters had limited command of English, they still managed to communicate sufficiently clearly, and we found all of them were friendly and helpful.
This should be a dinner destination for any travelers who enjoy a casual, low fuss dining experience with good food on San Martin Avenue.
