Protected from the noonday sun by umbrellas, the patio is a lovely place for lunch in the middle of Tilcara. The food and service are both very good

The food is based on local products (goat cheese from the farmers in the regions, llama meat too) but has a more creative and refined touch! We loved the breaded goat cheese (milanesa de queso de cabra con mote a la provenzal), the sopa de quinoa (quinoa soup), the llama a la naranja (llama meat with orange) and of course... More

This restaurant is just a block from the main square in Tilcara on one side and the church on the other. Get a table in the lovely backyard garden (covered with a cloth to block the sun), which can't be seen when you look in the front door. The menu includes some very tasty regional dishes.

We ate here during our stay in Tilcara and it was a lovely night. The atmosphere is really nice with the musicians playing their music. It's a cozy place and the staff is friendly and fast.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel where my parents and I stayed in Tilcara which coincidentally is also called Patio but no relation. This was my parents' first experience with Argentine steak and they ordered the lomo al pimiento which they said was the best steak they've ever had. Beef in the north I found generally to... More

Nice restaurant with pretty extensive menu of local dishes. Llama, pasta, lamb, steak, etc. Also sells nice jams and chutney products. Sitting outside on a sunny day is hard to beat.
