The waiter was very helpful with many recommendations and suggested getting several appetizers and just one entree to share so we could taste more dishes. We could always order more later (... More

outstanding restaurant in Tilcara! We tried a couple of the other Top-5, but this one outperforms the others by a mile! Excellent starters, mains and deserts along with fantastic service! Well worth its number one rank on Tripadvisor!

You have to make a reservation, it is normally booked out - which is not astonishing at all. All the food is fresh and very well presented.

Loved the place. There has been loads of reviews so the only thing that I can add is that you need to book. We tried to get in the first night in town and failed so booked for the following night.

Believe the hype: this place is fantastic. The food is delicious -- expertly prepared and quite elegantly presented, which was somewhat unexpected given the casual, hip vibe of the place. The service is impeccable, wine list is excellent. Yes, it sounds like it could be a stuffy, formal spot and it's not. High class dining in an relaxed environment. Doesn't... More

Looking at the unanimous critics it doesn't seem this place needs more compliments. We will anyway join the choir in praising the truly excellent food, creative but not pretentious, the nice atmosphere and the very friendly service. All this for a very reasonable bill. What else could you ask for?

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 back in 26 minutes, much to... 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
