Located a little outside of the hotel area. The food and service is excellent and at a low price. But the best thing is the entertainment. Locals come in to play thier instruments and sing which is an awesome experience. It can get really packed around 9pm on the weekends. Must go if you are in the mood for some... More

We've arrived late from Cafayate and could manage to get there only in 22.30, and the place was packed with locals (it was a Saturday night). We barely managed to grab a table, and there were a lot of people standing in line behind us, waiting to be seated. The food was good and very authentic, but what I liked... More

Went there two times during my stay in Salta. There are a few penas in the city, but the ones on Balcaceres are more touristy. This felt much more local and authentic. I had dinner there the 2nd time---a huge slab of ribs which were really delicious. However, one goes there for the music. About 11pm, the guitars come out... More

Great service although the meal is quite standard (one extra point for the sweet humita), but you do not actually come for this: La Casona del Molino is a wonderful venue, probably the best to listen to folklore. If you are looking for authenticity, stay away from the city center's shiny and super cheesy cabarets. This place is worth the... More

I stayed in Salta for two weeks to study Spanish and visited this place three times. The place is located out in the suburbs and away from all the action on Balcarce, though I believe this to be a good thing as it means the place is frequented mainly by locals which keeps the atmosphere authentic. The food was quite... More

We arrived a little after 9 pm and patio seating was by reservation only, so they put us in the front room. I was a little upset at first because we were the only ones in there and we were told that the music wouldn't begin until after midnight. Well, much to my delight, it started filling up shortly after... More
