One of our favorite meals in Bariloche! Run by a husband and wife team, the food and ambiance were simply perfect. Very intimate restaurant, with an excellent and well-priced wine list. Do not miss the beef empanadas, based on a family recipe! Best we had in Argentina, hands down. Reservations required! There are only 9 tables, and we watched many... More

The restaurant had been recommended by a friend and also by the hotel and it was amazing! It’s run by Geronimo and (I think) his wife. Just the two of them, so you have to reserve because they stagger the sittings so Geronimo is able to cope with cooking everything! The menu isn’t huge but it was delicious. We asked... More

That's what I said to the lovely hostess at Salamandra: "I can go to heaven now". Not sure if it is correct English, but it does describe how I felt during my visit to this lovely, old-fashionably hip restaurant. The ambiance is great and the people even better. So good that they didn't even tried to sell us as much... More

The restaurant was only a short walk from where we stayed in Bariloche. We went the first week of our 4 week stay and after the meal we booked for each of the following 3 weeks. The couple who run it where so friendly and helpful but the best was the food and ambiance which was great. We looked forward... More

Great service, excellent wine options. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. The empanadas were the best I've had so far in Argentina. Mushroom appetizer also very tasty.

Based off other TA reviews, my wife and I checked out Salamandra, and I would strongly recommend it. Friendly service, homey atmosphere, with a short-and-sweet menu... refreshing after so many in Argentina are 12 pages long with no real focus. We had the mushroom bruschetta, the provolone fried cheese, and the entrada steak - all were incredibly tasty! I'd go... More

I ended up here at the recommendation of my B&B operator. This is definitely her favourite place and she booked me into her favourite spot - a couch on the upper level amongst all the local antiques and furniture. I am a single traveller and I probably needed a little more company than this place offered but the food and... More

OK I'm going to explain how things are done at La Samandla. On arrival we were shown to our table (a converted treadle sewing machine like my mum used to use) and left with a menu. A little later, the lady of the house came to explain the menu, which is written in Goucho Spanish. She asked us how hungry... More
