As many tourist areas the prices are high. But I must say the great service and additional help with a food allergy made it worth the cost. It is a rare treat for us to eat out without a gluten cross contamination but the chef made the meal with fresh oil to fry the potatoes Español. Many thanks to the... More

If you go to Patagonia you should try the grilled lamb. Is special, different taste of any other part in the world.

We took friends visiting from the U.S. for the tango show, which is the only one we could find in San Martin. We had read the T.A. reviews about the less-than-stellar food, so buyer beware. I went in the day before and reserved for the tango show, to arrive the next evening at 9:30PM. I got to pick the best... More

This place has two restaurants in San Martin, I believe. One is near the plaza and the larger one is on Villegas. We went (twice) to the second one, since it was closer to our hotel and it looked a bit nicer. The atmosphere might not be excellent, it is one of those huge restaurants, but service is good and...

The Tango show that was going on there can do better without the food we had in this place. The Provilone cheese was very good. The chicken not bad. I made a big mistake ordering trout which was over cooked dry and not tasty. The flan was OK. The prices are between 20-50$ per p.

Posta Criolla is a newer restaurant, but with comfortable and attractive appointments. Menu is regional Paagonian, with a good selection of grill. Service is good, Very solid offering in San Martin.

There are a lot of restaurants in San Martin de los Andes to suit every budget and taste. One that is full all year and popular with locals is Posta Criolla on Villegas. It is opposite the Cumepen supermarket. They do a variety of dishes well and have both pasta and meat on the menu. The specialty is Patagonian lamb... More
