Super beef steak!!!

Me and my 6 friends were travelling through Chile, Bolivia and Argentina (and following the Dakar) with motorbikes. And we must say the steak we ate here was the most delicious and well cooked ever in this trip!!! Try it! But be sure to ask cooked rare!!! 2min each side! Not more!

We had dinner and reached early by local standards. By 1030 the restaurant was full. I had a parilla and my wife a differently prepared steak. The portions are typically big so don't over order. Facundo was our waiter. He spoke no English but we were able to understand each other with my limited Spanish. His suggestions were good and... More

The best steak we had in Salta. Generous portions, nice and quick service. My husband ordered a rib eye which was bigger than his palms:) waiter recommended great wine for decent price, overall great experience. For salad, wine, water, rib eye and lomo escalops we paid 48 euro. Truly recommended. Ps. During our visit there was a group of approx.20... More

The Parrilla in Salta for good Argentinian steaks! 500 g of nicely grilled beef meat along with a bottle of Malbec, that's what we had and cab really be recommended.

Went there in a quiet Sunday night. Can't remember exact cut but it was fantastic - waiter had the know how to stop us in our tracks ordering that second steak. Ordered with salads and a small bottle of Malbec. Despite being a little empty - it was the night of the last presidential debate after all - the waiter... More

We searched tripadvisor for one of the best places to eat steak in Salta and this place came up. Sadly, the good reviews did not live up to our expectations and we ended up a bit disappointed. First of, they only had two of the items on the menu (we were told at least); the lomo de chorizo or the... More

The meat was amazing, the vegetables were incredible, the grill was terrific. We were worried that it would be filled with tourists -- we were the only ones.

I thoroughly enjoyed two dinners here. Actually there are two restaurants. Not sure how to tell you, but go to the one which has more light and more of an airy appearance. Had the lomo with malbec pepper sauce. Simply wonderful.

Had steak, salad and wine. I do understand that rare steak is preferred in this country, but I had to send my steak back for a little more cooking. Eventually it arrived and was delicious. The salad was good for the 2 of us and the accompanying bread balanced the meal nicely. The mid price Malbec was good. Service was... More
