We were told by Jose (from Posta La Falda) "you have to have dinner at El Nuevo Progreso" in a rather peremptory way. But it was indeed very good advise! The old building was very welcoming and the personnel very friendly. Humita and tamales are highly recommended, but the highlight was the llama dish. Fantastic!

Wonderful food, nice decor, attentive service. We shared several dishes (quinoa salad, llama steak, steak, a some kind of apple pie dessert) and a reasonably priced bottle of San David Malbec.

Simple menu with sufficient variety. We came here 2 nights in a row and had the quinoa salad and the fish on the first night and the llama, lamb and apple crumble on the second night. All delightful, delicious and plated well. Note: the entree salads are sufficient as mains. The staff are also great! Pricing wise, entree salads are... More

My husband and I are here for dinner having read good things on TripAdvisor. We're only here one night and spending it here was the right choice. The husband and wife team who run El Nuevo Progreso are delightful. Welcoming, warm it feels like coming home for dinner with friends. The food, second to none. Go hungry and make the... More

We loved this placed. The food was very good and tasty, with good meat and vegetarian options. The restaurant itself was cute - candles and fairy lights etc. The waiter also helped us have a lovely meal - he gave excellent service, complimenting us on our choice of wine and generally making us feel very welcome. A little expensive for... More

This restaurant was recommended by our guide who has been in Tilcara hundreds of times. He said it was his favorite. The ambiance is simple but very relaxing. The waiter was very helpful with many recommendations and suggested getting several appetizers and just one entree to share so we could taste more dishes. We could always order more later (... More

outstanding restaurant in Tilcara! We tried a couple of the other Top-5, but this one outperforms the others by a mile! Excellent starters, mains and deserts along with fantastic service! Well worth its number one rank on Tripadvisor!
