We had an excellent dinner at El Nuevo's! Lomo de Llama and bife chorrizo both were perfect, along with a bottle of nice Malbec... That was the best food we had in Tilcara and Argentina so far!

We were really surprised by the original preparations and the quality of the food, not that common in Argentina! The Llama is very recommendable! We would certainly return.

Situated just off the main square El Nuevo Progreso has a menu in both Spanish and English, however very little English is spoken in the restaurant. This unassuming restaurant serves very good food, which is well presented and is served hot. Between placing our order and its serving we were served complimentary toast and an Aubergine dip, all very nice... More

It's a diamond in the rough, way out of the way in Tilcara, but definitely worth it if you're in Jujuy. The steak was delicious as was the goat cheese appetizer

Well this was a treat. We needed somewhere to eat for our young daughter and in these parts of Argentina that can be easier said than done at 7pm! It wasn't what we were looking for as this place is a bit classy. Great food and atmosphere and the service from the staff was exceptional. Best restaurant meal for a... More

We were in Tilcara on Sunday night, and a lot of recommended places were closed. We liked the look of this place so picked it for dinner, and are glad we did. Service and ambience were warm and friendly - the setup a bit rustic mish mash (furniture all a bit diifferent) with a big wine list and candle lighting.... More
