Good food and attentive service

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... read 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

Not being aware of the recent move to a new location, we decided to walk from our Courtyard hotel to the restaurant, which we chose based on the recent reviews. After a while we realized that we weren't getting anywhere and we called the restaurant. To our great surprise, the owner offered to pick us up from the hotel (he... More

I have read the last 8 reviews, went to the place, ate the food, and I agree enthusiastically with their opinion. Empanadas are delicious the flank steak was seasoned and done to perfection. The service was impeccable. They have a South American version of pesto sauce called chimichurri sauce that is sublime. We would most definitely go there again.

Do not be fooled by the nondescript strip center. This place has some great meat and empanadas. The meat was flavored perfectly and the chimichuri was excellent and not too overpowering. We will definitely be coming back.

This place is absolutely wonderful! Everything they serve to they way they lovingly greet you at the front door! For a year I worked right next to this place and never thought it was open. I switched jobs and now all of our suppliers bring us here. And when its the day for Saldivia's, we are all super excited! You... More

We have had dinner here about once every two months for the past couple of years. The meals are great, with good ingredients that are well prepared. On Saturdays they have a guitar player and vocalist that make a lively atmosphere. The only negative is that the restaurant is in a strip center hidden behind another block of shops, and... More
