I see why this is the top place in the area Loved it. All dishes were good (we all four tried each other) No complaints and we had a fun waiter.

If you are having doubts about making the trip to Tilcara, its worth it for El Nuevo Progreso alone. Coming from London and living in New York Ive had my share of "top resturaunts'... Dining at El Nuevo Progreso was an experience I have seldom had; the decor is understated and stylish, the food is on par (if not better)... More

We were told to eat at El Patio, but since there was no table free we crossed the street and ended up in this very charming restaurant. Very friendly staff who offered excellent service. The food was really delicious, especially the starter with (self-made) goat cheese. Definitely try the lomo de llama, very very good!

The place has lovely atmosphere, service was wonderful. But most important - the food was just something else. Every single dish was special, different, made with great test. We spent an amazing evening there, wanted to go again the next day but it was their day off. If you're in Tilcara - do yourself a favour and don't miss this... More

The owner of our hotel in Tilcara recommended this restaurant to us, and it was a great recommendation. As others have said, this restaurant has a great atmosphere, unique and delicious dishes, and a nice selection of regional wines. And the dessert was one of the best I had in Argentina. My boyfriend and I split the crepes/panqueques for dessert... More

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...
