This is a lovely little restaurant which serves beautiful freshly made pasta. The menu is perhaps slightly too limited (I usually prefer a varied smaller menu but here the selection was quite samey) and service is slow but I would highly recommend the food as it is cooked to such a high standard.

In this little restaurant, we spent a great time. Meals are excellent and it's amazing to see the coockers preparing your meal. Be aware you have to be patient to get your meals. We taste lasagna and risotto, excellent

This little restaurant (seats 10-15) is a long block off the main plaza (on the side with the church). It is run by a young couple who do everything. The open kitchen allows you to watch the food preparation from the dining area while listening to music and enjoying some wine. We don't speak Spanish and the couple didn't speak... More

This amazing little restaurant (seats about 14) is on a street off the main plaza in Cachi. The couple who cooks and serves proudly offers a few dishes. These are made from scratch in the kitchen which you can observe from a couple of meters away. Yesterday evening we had the quinoa risotto, pizza for the kids, for desert cayote... More

It's small, dark, and cozy, and the food and wine was very, very good. Everything was exceptional in flavors as well as portion size (we had leftovers for our drive the next day). I'm far from being a vegetarian myself, but if I could find vegetarian food this good where I live: I just might become one. The staff was... More

We stumbled into this quaint little restaurant just of the main plaza in Cachi during our last trip of the Vuelta del Valle, and we're very happy we did. The restaurant, small, welcoming and family-run fits in perfectly with the tiny town and is decorated with artesanias and low lit candle lighting. The music was a combination of folklorica and...

Very chamring restaurant in the heart of Cachi. The food was really good: fresh pastas, salads, quinoa risotto... All fresh. The kitchen counter is wide open to the restaurant. At night, intimate atmosphere with candlelight. Warm welcome rom owners Ariel and Veronica who left Buenos Aires for peaceful life of Cachi. I would like to add that the hospitality of... More

Whilst we love steak, we were fed up with the typical Argentinan steak & carb overload at every meal. This restaurant is a lovely local restaurant with delicious vegetarian food and we loved it when we went there for dinner. Our meals, whilst they took a while, were cooked while we watched and you could really taste the freshness. Go... More
