Nice restaurant in Salta

I was in Dona Salta for dinner after one of the tours in Salta. The place is nicely decorated. Staff very friendly and food is great. Great empanadas and delicious dessert.

I was reading the reviews describing the restaurant as touristy but gave it a try since it was well visited and looked nice from outside. The food was unfortunately fairly mediocre and seasoning was bland. However what made me pay immediately after I had finished and run was the service. Hurried and unattentive is one thing. But using my table... More

Four of us went there for dinner the other night, recommended by our AirBnb owner. We had empanadas, salad, steak and salad. Everyone was elated with their meal, and I would say it was the best rib eye steak I have had in Argentina. Not sure why others have complained about service, as ours was excellent. Never had to wait... More

Food was OK. Decent empanadas. I had the goat. I thought it would be a stew, but it was grilled goat ribs. Very chewy and not much meat, covered with potato chips. Others in our group had the stews, which were much better than mine. Server seemed to be frustrated with us for not ordering faster. Hard to understand when... More

We went for a dinner. One has local specialities which taste good. The Atmosphere is nice. Not an extraordinary place but quite fine for a lunch/dinner with fair prices.

A bit of a tourist trap but none the worse for that. A lovely old building, well decorated with some beautiful wall hangings, and waiters dressed as gauchos. Unfortunately the food was pretty average. My wife enjoyed her veal and chick pea stew, but my flank steak was dry and tasteless. Credit or debit cards aren't accepted.

We ordered two local dishes (stew with veal, either with chickpeas or lentils), a salad, 1 glass of house wine and a bottle of water. All that came at a very moderate price of 265 pesos (about 18 blue euros). We would have loved to pay more for better food though. The stews were very filling but lacked proper seasoning... More

Have visited this restaurant many times on various trips to Salta and would recommend it. Moderately priced, excellent food, and superb service. Great location as well.

I am in Salta in a Business trip, and I always try to eat the local cuisine, where I am traveling. I asked at the front desk of my hotel for suggestions, and Dona Salta was what was recommended. To be honest, I was very disappointed. The second I walked in I said to myself Tourist Trap, they were trying... More

Very good food but just at the limit of being too touristy. Great service by very knowledgeable waiters who gives great cues on wine. Great dinner!
