Nothing compares to an Argentinean steak

After putting up with Chilean food for the best part of the month I was hankering for a good steak and had heard good things about this place. Being from the UK we were starving by the time it got to 7:30 and the place opened for dinner, but it was definitely worth the wait. We each ordered a... read more

We were recommended this place by our hostel, and were not disappointed. Although above our normal budget, we splashed out, after just arriving from Bolivia,desperate for steak and wine. The service was slow, but only because the place was rammed, with a queue out the door when we arrived. We ordered 2 limo steaks, medium rare, one with peppercorn sauce,... More

We turned out far too early as tourists do, firstly we were ignored then a waiter took us in and looked after us for the night despite very limited spanish for us and english for him...it made the experience fabulous even if the size of my steak was overwhelming ! It was delicious too By the time we left, the... More

Comparing it to other restaurants in Salta, this is pretty basic on flavors (empanadas and parrillada), expensive, and there are bugs in the food!!!!!!!!! I ordered a LOCRO and there was a dead cockroach. You can see the kitchen on your way to the bathroom and it's so dirty! The only pretty thing in this restaurant is the decoration.

My husband and I ate here every day during our 3 day staying in Salta. The lomo was excellent, provoleta was fantastic and we were always lucky with our wine choice. The prices are also reasonable. Highly recommended.

Friendly restaurant, had a very nice parilla. We were with our children and waiters advised us not to order too much food as portions quite large, appreciated this very much. Highly recommendable for Argentinian food.

Food is very tasty and the selection of dishes is very good as well. Service could be a bit better though as they rush a bit too much in my opinion

We ate here the other night and I really hate to give bad reviews, but wow the food here was terrible. As many people have said on here already, perhaps we ordered wrong? I thought other reviewers on here were being a bit picky, but clearly not!! My boyfriend had the lasagne and I ordered the pumpkin ravioli - both... More

Great Steak and dishes from a local cuisine. A local favorite recommended to us by many people in the area. A great large restaurant with a very private setting. Great meal.
