Very good for Argentina

Great atmosphere and very good food. Best I've eaten since being in Argentina. The Paris steak was really tender and enormous with delicious sauce and a mountain of cheese covered wedges in a separate bowl. The salmon and risotto was a little over cooked but still really good with another delicious... read more

If you have to eat there it won't be the tragedy of your life but you won't be recounting it on your death bed. I went for the stir fry which was pretty poor to be honest but that serves me right. If there's one thing I've learned in Argentina it's stick to steak. My wife ordered the tenderloin. It... More

This is a great place for a bite to eat. We arrived late in the evening. There is seating outside and service is nice. You do not have to wait long for your dinner. They serve good salads.

You know, a lot of Salteños really love this restaurant, but it never does much for us. They really try to be creative with the menu, but the end result just isn't that good. Maybe being a gluten-free vegetarian is the problem. The atmosphere is nice, they have a good wine selection. You can try it for yourself and see.... More

Found this place by chance - early evening but hungry and not sure if they were set up for evening meals. Very helpful waitress talked us through the menu. Superb steaks, terrific local wine list and a lovely atmosphere. By the time we left, it was a buzzing restaurant. We'l be back!

We were lucky enough to have this just around the corner from our hotel. Excellent cooking, good atmosphere, friendly and relaxed service with a good choice of wine. And good coffee too!

A total delight. A fantastic space, excellent choice of wines and superb cooking. At night you can choose between the more relaxed bar area or the restaurant but in both you'll get excellent food at real value for money. In our opinion the number one place to eat in Salta.

Excellent atmosphere and great food. We loved the Tacos Pollo which was perfectly seasoned with peppers and onions, and the tomatoes, picante and guacamole were fresh and delicious. The pizza's were filling. Cool place to hang out and enjoy the music.
