Unpretentious and excellent

Small, cool, good, intimate, dark, vegetarian, welcoming, funny music, centrally located near the square, no wifi or other distracting interferences, quite cheap, did I say good? In fact very good.... Just go there! (unless you're into formal dressing and protocolar dinner, or you won't be happy).

A veg spot in the middle of now. Also a nice room with a lot of feeling. The chef will do his best to please. It was a bit chilly when I was there. Would be great to have a stove in teh room but probably not permitted. Very tasty food and delicious fruit juice to begin with.

We were part of a tour to the city and we skipped the restaurant or guide "suggested". We went for a walk and found this cosy little place. The wife was really nice and forthcoming with the food and service. Even though I'm not the greatest admirer of meatless food, we had some empanadas with a lemonade that were fantastic.... More

Very innovative dishes, sophisticated mixed of ingredients to produre very unique tastes. The fact that have meat is a real relief in Argentina. It is a very pleasnt culinary experience. Only one suggetion to the owners: have the wife deal with the tables and the customers, she is really personable, lively and fun. Have husband stay in the kitchen, he... More

This is a great little space, just down a side-street away from the main square in Cachi - low lighting, great fresh food, good prices. (It's not 'excellent' as a gourmet meal but as great, tasty food in a nice space.) The only drawback is that the wine by the glass is only average, but that won't be an issue... More

This is a lovely quiet family run restaurant in Cachi which serves delicious food. The owners are a lot of fun and we really enjoyed our evening there.

The menu is absolutely vegetarian-friendly, some dishes are vegan. There are only a few tables - make a reservation or come early.

We were brought here on the recommendation of our hotel host, and had no idea it was a vegetarian restaurant. A brave concept in meat-crazed Argentina, we were intrigued, and sat down. Man, were we glad we did. A dark, cozy setting, with an open kitchen, it feels like you are eating in someone's home. The good was fantastic too,... More
