“Cool decor and atmosphere, below average food and service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

The mondongo was in edible and we had to send it back. The goat stew had so much bone and other non edible parts that not much was left, though the broth was tasty. The ravioli were ok, but we've certainly had much better. These had too much dough for my taste. The sauce was very light and the grated cheese came in a package, not fresh grated. The service was below average. The best part was the atmosphere with nice music and the empanadas. We had the empanada charaui, which was excellent and the cheese one which was very nice also. There were five of us including two adults, one teen and two kids. The kids enjoyed the ravioli.

“Nice atmosphere...very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

I was in Doña Salta a couple days ago, The place is quite interesting with a nice atmosphere and a very good food. I had a "locro" wich was really good. Very turistic place but still worth a visit.

“Best steak in Argentina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

I had the best steak I've ever had in my life at Dona Salta. It was over 3 weeks ago, and I can still taste it. It was very crowded but the service was speedy (compared to most places in Argentina) - the staff is friendly and I think we paid about 50 dollars for steak, pasta and wine.

Definitely go here if you're in Salta!

“Restaurant Doña Salta”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

The food is very good but it is very expensive as compared to other places. In general the food in Salta is very good and you can find better prices elsewhere.
