This was definitely the best meal I had during my 3 month stay in Argentina, if not one of the best I've ever had! I tried llama for the first time and it was prepared perfectly! For dessert, I had the dulce de leche crepe with banana rum sauce - to die for! The staff was incredible and so... read more

along with great staff, I had the best steak I've had in argentina here! The owner actually married me and my wife in this restaurant and gave us a wonderful painting.

The ambience and service stood out here but not the food. It was only average and stale bread was not a good look. But the hosts were wonderful and making a very worthwhile effort. A bit expensive for what you get, especially the wine list. But still worth a visit.

Great place that earns its high rating! Great location just in front if park & church, lovely restored building, inside its all about " warm & cozy". Service by the proprietor is truly top notch and beyond - from the moment you walk in to the handshake and/or abrazo on the way out - this guy goes above & beyond... More

Central location right opposite to the church. Nice large space (also a gallery). Friendly and helpful service. And, above all, great food!

The food and service lived up to its good reviews. Offers quality versions of the local dishes and has a cozy atmosphere. The chicken brochette, the llama meat and the desserts were excellent, including the dulce de leche pancake.

A very nice atmosphere, wodden chairs and tables with candles. The staff was friendly and welcoming and the food delicious! Try the Lomo de Llama! Service was fast and they have unbeatable prices for what you get! If you go to Tilcara, eat there at least once!

We have had mixed experience in Argentina so far, but this was outstanding. The restaurant manages a warm and welcoming feel in a simple way. Our host was charming, helpful and knowledgeable and the food was delicious. We are here for one more night but they will be closed! what a disaster. If you are in Tilcara eat here.

After reading all the positive reviews we couldn't leave Tilcara without having a meal here. The place has a really nice atmosphere, candle lights and interesting decor, the service was good as well. We were a bit disappointed by the food though. We asked for soup which was surprisingly dull in terms of taste, lamb in beer which wasn't tender... More
