La Lenita serves classic parrillada and does it very well. The meat was very good, the salad (uncommonly they have a salad bar) good and the ambience of the place as it should be. It's located in the "entertainment centre" of Salta so you're spoilt for choice when it comes to bars and restaurants. During the meal one of the... More

Argentina is a country of beef . . . and more beef . . . and more beef with few to no veggies and a bit of salad. We selected the pollo (chicken breast) which is pounded and served on a plate with a slice of lemon. We ordered fries for our side (they were just OK), but the pollo... More

We were told that in this restaurant waiters are hired only if they can sing, but that night they were probably taking a break in their tournée ... Anyway, the large buffet gives a good choice to vegetarians, and the parrilla makes the rest of the table more than happy. Large room, no noise, relaxing experience, decent price. Just jeep... More

We stayed one night in Salta and this resto was recommended by our hotel. It's in a cosy street with lots of bars and restos. Nice trendy interior with lots of space, good food and 1 litre Stella bottles. Not the most typical of Argentinian restos, but good quality and nice atmosphere at reasonable prices

This place is located in Balcarce street, a very bohemian place. For a very fair price, you get a very high quality steak. It is highly recommended to eat your meet with a good red wine. La leñita is closed on December 24 and the 25.

This restaurant was recommended by our guide. The steak here really juicy and flavoursome. It is a high ceilinged place was relaxed service. The wine list is decent, but the food really good.

Average meat by Argentinean standards. A salad bar without and originality nor creativity. Overall, a decent meal which will be fast forgotten.
