My husband and I visited this restaurant for lunch while in Salta. The service and quality of food was superb. Our server, Oscar, recommended the wine, the types of meat to order in our parrillada and made suggestions of places to visit. We had a great experience. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Went to the restaurant just when it opened for dinner. The cleaning team started its work at the same time. Instead of cleaning one should rather say "redistributing the dirt". Went to the toilet before ordering and whilst walking to it passed by the kitchen... Shouldn't have done it this way. This place can definitely not be recommended.

We arrived when the restaurant was almost totally empty at about 8:20 and within about 20 minutes it was really full and there was a nice buzz. Bread basket came quickly but then we had to wait quite a while to order. Our waiter spoke little English but we got by with pointing at body parts and the Spanish I... More

Great service and a nice atmosphere inside. The food was really good, steaks were cooked to perfection and price was fair for what you get. Choice was pretty decent, the sharing dishes looked particularly good.

Great food and good service. Highly recommend for steak or pasta! The portions are very large though so only go if you're very hungry or try asking for a reduced portion for a smaller price.

I arrived at dinner time, typically 9 pm in Argentina, and did not have to wait much for a table. It is quite a touristic restaurant. I had a good wine with a provoleta, plus salad. The food was ok, but the air was quite smoky and damped my clothes of parrilla smell and the waitress was a little bossy.

We arrived very early for dinner ...8:30 pm! Our service was excellent to start and then got to the point where we could not find our waiter. He was always pleasant, but not always attentive. Our meals were tasty but overlooked. Fun place to people watch as it is a popular location.

A favorite of locals, grilled meats are the mainstay, although we saw some pasta and other dishes being served. We ate very well (provoleta cheese, a "complete" salad, kid goatmeat, french fries and cheese and candied fruit for dessert). They have a pretty respectable wine list too.

Had an early lunch here with a large group of students. The service was good, and food arrived pretty quickly (for Argentine speed!). The students were happy with all the meat on their plates, and our pasta dishes were delicious.
