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

The steak we had here was superb and great value. Often restaurants in Argentina overcook meat but not here. The restaurant is fairly basic but both food and service are really good

Located outside of the centre of town, this place had some really good steak at affordable prices. I ordered the bife de chorizo, which was came out cooked as ordered. Delicious and tender, though perhaps a tad bit over-salted (the opposite problem of some parrillas in Buenos Aires, oddly enough). I also had the fries, which were ok. Service was... More

Not 'the greatest steak' ever but still a nice experience, a solid steak, and an entertaining waiter. I think some trip advisor users are overly enthusiastic. But nonetheless, worth a visit. If your hostel has a kitchen try buying a steak and cooking it yourself

The best steak in Argentina, so tender that they slided it with a spoon at our table. Very nice restaurant, service great and really authentic Argentinian.

Me and my girlfriend got the bife de chorizo to share, oh my god it was huge, the meat itself was the thickness of my little finger and the tenderness of it was incredible, easily the best steak and probably best meal I've ever had. We got a salad to accompany the steak but we didn't even need anything else... More

We came here twice and loved it both times! If you choose a dish for 2/3 persons it is enough. We ordered french fries, but it was too much! A large Salta beer is only 24 peso's and comes with frozen glasses and a cooler with ice! Service was great also an eldery funny waiter did his job very good!

Our first night in Salta, and as this restaurant had plenty of good reviews, we decided to try it out. We were the first to sit down (8.30 pm), staff more interested in watching the football on TV than serving us - no worries, we were not in a hurry. No English spoken and the menu entirely in Spanish, so... More
