Frankly, the Argentines do steak much better than the Ticos, and this Argentine-themed steakhouse is one of the best restaurants in the city. The decor and ambience are pure Porteño, and the extensive menu features a long list of grilled meats, including bife de chorizo (strip), ojo de bife (rib eye), and mollejas (sweatbreads), as well as some very good pastas and various seafood and poultry offerings. The place is festive and almost always filled to brimming, so you’ll need reservations.
