Hands down. We had succulent chicken skewers with quinoa and llama steak. Sounds simple, but the taste was rich. On top of that, the atmosphere is just charming and the owner and staff couldn't have been kinder. This was the tastiest meal for me in any of my many trips to Argentina.

Upon arriving in dusty little Tilcara I was concerned about what the quality of the food would be like but El Nuevo Progreso put my fears to rest. We had a fabulous meal, great service, a cozy atmosphere and a wonderful Torrontes (was it only $11 a bottle?!?). I highly recommend having dinner here at least one night.

Our first night in Tilcara, El Nuevo Progreso wasn't open. We ate a very lovely meal at another restaurant across the street. Because of the wonderful reviews, we returned to El Nuevo Progreso the following night. I am so glad we did, because it was a night I will remember for the rest of my life. The owner greeted us...

As with most of the other reviews, I concur with the incredibly positive comments. It was not only the best food we had in Tilcara but the whole time we were in Argentina! Also a mention for the friendly, welcoming staff.

We had a truly memorable meal at El Nuevo Progreso - it was our first and best of several llama experiences on our trip, and it was a wonderful surprise! Great atmosphere, amazing wine, fantastic host and genuinely delicious food (the ice cream and apple pie are definite must-haves!)

All the food here is delicious! We shared the llama carpaccio, a salad of confit tomato and greens, the llama fillet with pepper steak red wine sauce and the crepe of dulche de leche, banana brown sugar and rum. Every bite was as tasty as the next. The home made bread is exceptional. The service was great and the choice... More

Llama carpaccio here is a must try. My wife got the llama steak and it was way better than the other 2 we tried. Good wine, enthusiastic service and great ambiance.

Our guide recommended El Nuevo Progresso to us, so we went - not expecting anything special. As the restaurant filled up, we realized that this is a really popular restaurant - and for good reasons. The food is excellent, and after eating steak for two weeks in Argentina, we found it a real treat. If you find yourself in Tilcara,... More
