Delicious food with quality local cooking

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

We had an amazing meal at this restaurant which gives a new twist to the local cuisine. The lama and quinoa I had was just delicious! Service is very attentive and the restaurant is very quiet and relaxing. A must!

A lovely night, interesting decor, a charming host and tasty food. For us, this a recipe for fun. Small town so no credit cards. Plan ahead I adored his eggplant dips smoky flavor, an interesting wine list and our llama steak. Order this cooked the same way you would enjoy any beef steak. Be sure to visit this place. You...

We loved our meal here, the food was well presented and very tasty. The setting was perfect, spacious with simple decoration. Very relaxing with jazzy music in the background. We had regional food but stylishly interpreted with excellent flavours to give it a more classy appeal.

After seing all the positive reviews, we decided to check it out, and we were not disappointed. We didn't have a reservation and the restaurant was full when we arrived, but we sat on the couch and waited about 10-15 minutes for a table and I don't regret it. Everything we ate was very flavorful and delicious. The service was... More
