Lo Mejor de TIlcara

My girlfriend and I came to El Nuevo Progresso on a Saturday night, without a reservation. Unfortunately we weren't able to be seated right away, but the very friendly bartender (presumably owner as well) told us to come back in about 25 minutes. We went and grabbed a drink in town and then came... read more

The restaurant is spacious and welcoming, with interesting works of art on the wall. There is a family friendly feel to the restaurant while at the same time the space allows for a cosy meal for two. The staff are wonderful and the waiter put us immediately at ease with his charm, patience and good humour. The choice on the... More

Visited here as part of an organised tour of Argentina, Bolivia and Chile. The meal here was by far the best we had on our two week trip. The service was attentive and ambience of the restaurant was just right. Between the group we tried most things on the menu, with everyone being more than happy with their meal.

good food contemporary with local ingredients (tripadvisor exaggerates with this requirement of at least 100 characters)

Tucked away on a corner on the main square of Tilcara is a restaurant that can't help but captivate your taste buds. Maria Florencia Rodriguez fuses local ingredients with a refined flare - the result is as delicious as it is creative, in an authentic bohemian setting. The lomo steak was topped with a surprise - the tastiest blood sausage... More

The first night we tried to get a table, we were told they were all reserved, even though several tables were empty. We understood later that before 7:30 pm, one needs to make reservations and the tables that appear empty are in fact waiting for those who reserved them. So for the following night, we called the restaurant and got... More

Ate Llama steak for the first time, which was amazing. The pumpkin soup was out of this world. Ambience was great and service top notch!

Pleasant spot with candlelit tables and art on the walls. Interesting menu with a few good vegetarian options. Soup was only soso, but the quinoa salad was quite nice. Pleasant service too.

If you really know your food and you appreciate people who know what they're doing with food then do yourself a favour and go for dinner here. The owner in his old life, was an artist and is one of those effortlessly cool people who is genuinely eccentric (not it w tiresome way though in the best possible way) but... More
