This seems to be where the folk from Salta eat. Straightforward but good food. There are a number of individual rooms so although this is a large restaurant it doesn’t feel that way. A number of tables on the pavement for those warm evenings. My chicken Provençale was exactly right and the extensive wine list includes some top Torrontés from... More

My wife and I had dinner at Jovis twice, initially at the recommendation of our hotel. The restaurant is fairly large but fills up quickly after 9pm with Spanish-speaking customers - seemed more a gathering place for locals than a restaurant for tourists, but there is an English menu, the waiters were friendly and service is good. Food is standard... More

February 2014, looking for another restaurant nearby which I couldn't find and stumbled across this restaurant by chance. Was I glad I did. The restaurant is large and was completely full for lunch. We managed to get a table outside on the terrace. After getting our meals we understood why this place was so full. The food was excellent, the... More

It's hard to find good food in Salta, especially seafood but they did it. Meditate on the wall of fame while munching and sipping on wine. Enjoy all the other happy people.

I really enjoyed the Jovi. The atmosphere is cozy and the food is wonderful. I went three times and every time I had the opportunity to eat great options of mass and meat.The price for the couple (with wine and tip) was about 300 pesos

First of all the food was good, but many other little things dont allow me to suggest it to other people: 1- the waiter didnt allow us to seat outdoor, since he was alone to serve (it was not true, and during the evening more tables was to be added outside, simply were attended by other waiters) 2- the meat...

We have just spent a couple of weeks in Argentina, including Buenos Aires, Iguazu and Salta. It's a bit difficult to find vegetables or leafy greens in Argentina, as meat is the standard, although both chicken and fish are available as well. This restaurant was recommended by our hotel clerk (Hotel Verrey). We prefer outdoor seating when possible, and Jovi... More

Jovi Dos is a typical, local Argentine restaurant with an extensive/exhausting menu and very competitive prices. The food is very decent.

We had a nice and gentle waiter, but the food was just ok. It seems to be one of these places that have been recommended too often and that just live on their recommendations now. There are better places to go. The food is correct but not waw.

Don’t be put off by the shabby outside appearance. Inside this is a bustling, four-room old-fashioned brasserie with hard-working friendly staff, full of locals enjoying copious and good food and conversation. The bar area has hams overhead, onions and wine bottles on the surface, and two pictures of the new Pope propped up against them to assure diners of the... More
