We choose the 'suggestion menu' which was the most expensive choice. The meat was called 'corderos'. We didn't know this kind of meat so we asked what this was. The waiter said that it was a piece of the cow, similar to bife de chorizo. However, the meat was only bone and fat and was nothing like bife! Positive points:... More

Genuinely better steak than we have had in restaurants in Buenos Aires. Good meat, and they actually cook it carefully to your order (not just cremate or serve it still alive and rely on size to wow you). Friendly service and traditional music while you eat.

We had dinner at Los Puestos and was very disappointed in the service and food. Even though there were only a few customers in the restaurant, our waiter was painfully slow.

The restaurant is in a nice building on the main street of Tilcara We shared a salad and some hot rolls. I had the bife de chorizo and my wile had the chicken breast. They cook the meat on an outdoor grill. Nice atmosphere and good food.

The "little guest house" restaurant offers a broad selection of items on its menu. The empanadas and soup were very good. The resto is cozy, the staff friendly and the food good.

I went there with the idea to get great, fresh, home-made local food.... I ordered lamb stew. It smelled great however when I inserted my knife I discovered it was completelly FROZEN in the inside.... The potatoes where cold..... Really dissapointing
