Came along with a cpl mates and enjoyed amazing steak for a reasonable price. Service was attentive and friendly. Didn't have many wines available from the wine list. I was there for big, juicy, tasty steak and I wasn't disappointed! We are here several times in our stay in salta

This is a very basic restaurant but out steak was perfectly cooked as we requested.   Service was also good and our waitress spoke good English.   The fries weren't amazing but the good value red wine more than made up for it.

If you are in Salta and feel that you need to still your thirst for steak yet another time, this is your place. We were two and shared a very decent piece of meat with a solid salad and basic fries. To be honest: the waiter somehow struggled with cutting the piece of meat, and we did not get the... More

The "bife de chorizo" was big enough for two gto share and was well cooked and very tasty. Likewise the papas fritas and salad were good. Reasonably priced beer and wine. Service: very good. I would definitely visit again.

Until the moment I went to El viejo Jack! I ordered the churrasco de filet which was a portion for 2 persons. We received... More

Dined here on 23/3/14. Ordered the fillet steak. Very tender and very tasty. The table next to me ordered the bife chorizo and it looked fantastic.

The reviews made this place sound too good to be true and They Were! The food was mediocre, but when I got the check, they charged me for bread and sauce which I did not ask for. It nearly took an act of congress to remove the charge that I REFUSED to pay! I suggest Times at 25Julio, the food... More

El viejo jack was only a five minute walk from our hostel, so we decided to check it out. The restaurant looks quite nice, and when it fills up around 12 the atmosphere is good. The prices are good, and the bife de chorizo is pretty tasty. However, after going to La Monumental I have to recommend that restaurant over... More
