We'll definitely return to Saldivia's

After going to the old location and discovering the restaurant had moved a few miles away, we were glad we kept looking for it. The ambiance was casual but very clean and nice. There is obviously a loyal soccer clientele because the large screen TV at the end of the room was showing the Copa... read more

Had their Monday lunch special today, ASADO Beef flat ribs served with grilled vegetables and roasted potatoes. The beef was so tough neither of us could eat ours. The restaurant had only five other customers and it was noon! We will never be back!

My wife and I found this place thanks to TripAdvisor, and we weren't disappointed. Everything was spot on - from the empanadas to the parrillada to the tres leches - I wouldn't have changed one item. The service was great - young attentive servers always ready to help, and always with a smile. The wine selection was good, and affordable.... More

Early dinner tonight so it was quiet. It was our waiters 1st night so I will give them a break on the service aspect. The food was really good. The Empanadas are tasty and recommended. Both the Grilled Salmon and the Entrana were excellent and flavorful. I like that the sauces were not overpowering. Due to a few service issues... More

The food is very good at Saldivias. The menu is a very typical South American menu. Beef and meat heavy. We had steaks, sausage sampler and a wonderfully garlicky Caesar salad. The steaks are very good and well cooked. The chimichurri sauce is really good with the meats and especially with the blood sausage. We had a service snafu that... More

Saldivia's began in Bellaire, but moved to Westheimer a few years ago, but to a hard to find location behind a strip shopping center just East of Beltway 8. A couple of months ago it moved to a better location, no longer hidden from view from the street, now about 4 blocks West of Beltway 8. The new location is... More

Excellent South American cooking .. just love the meats, especially the chuletas de cordero (perfect flavour!), not to mention the entrana and asado. All with an appropriately sized accompanying potatoes and vegetables. And to start, there are empanadas, cold cuts, and the classical tomato and onion salad. The house wines are good ... And all at a very reasonable price.... More
