Not the same as Posta Criolla Plaza

I had eaten at Posta Criolla Plaza 2 weeks ago and absolutely loved it. Both the food and the service were top notch. I expected the same here since it is the sister restaurant to the Plaza. I ordered Bife de Chorizo with Agridulce sauce. The cut of meat was the saddest bife de chorizo I have seen... read more

I loved this place, I got the grilled lamb and was just outstanding, very good Smokey flavor. The service very good and fast, the price was ok for a place just in downtown. Highly recommended.

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.
