What a delightful surprise to come across such an outstanding place in a small town in the middle of a big country. We did not know what to expect, so we're thrilled by our experience, and modified our itinerary so that we spent another night in tilcara on our return trip, just so we could have another meal there Imaginative,...

Great food with very good vegetarian options. A slightly quirky, alternative environment that feels genuine. Greeted with delight by the owner when we returned for a second night. The only time we returned to a restaurant in our 6 week trip.

The lamb in beer sauce was absolutely delicious. Very pleasant atmosphere and a tad cheaper than across the road.

There isn't much I can say that previous reviewers haven't said already. This is a warm,welcoming restaurant thanks to the co-owner, Fernando, who also does the art. He and his wife, the co-owner and chef, have done it right. The art and music are great and Fernando is a pleasure. Wind, of course, the food and wine are excellent. We... More

Everything about this restaurant is excellent: the food, the wine, the friendliness of the owners, the other diners all obviously enjoying themselves, the artwork (also done by the owners), and the price was very reasonable. Unfortunately we were not there on an evening when music is performed. We'll have to return for that. This was by far among the best... More

After traveling for almost 6 weeks in Argentina and having eaten in many restaurants in divert cities, this was simply the best restaurant in the country! Great, fresh food, nice atmosphere and very friendly staff.

We had dinner two nights in a row. The food is excellent, the wine (Argentinian) is excellent, the service is personalized, the music is old France. All of this in one large room with a great fireplace at a very reasonable price. Next time in Tilcara I will eat there again.

Totally the opposite atmosphere then the restaurant at the corner at the same block. Here you go for a quiet meal in a great atmosphere and undoubtedly food from a top chef. The lamb in beer was superb. The lomo de chorizo and lomo de llama were good but can be better. The deserts made it a top night. I... More

We have been to Tilcara and visited this very nice restaurant. The food was decent, and the waiter and waitresses were _very_ nice and gentle. Great wines, very good variety of meals for a very fair price! Definitely worth a try. Be early, they are usually full at the common times! Kind regards, Nils
