This was our second time at El Charrua and we felt let down. Last time we were very happy with the food and service, unfortunately this experience was not confirmed this time. Service was unfriendly and rushed, and the meat was not cooked to an acceptable standard. With several good parrillas in Salta, I will not be going back to... More

Thanks to Tripadvisor positive comments I discovered this restaurant. I had a wonderful experience. The food I ordered (Entrecote with mushrooms) upon suggestion of the waiter was incredibly good, as well as the wine I ordered (Finca las Nubes). I still remember after so many months the good taste of that meat!

Yet another great steak, and a bottle of malbec! Gracious service, and a nice atmosphere. We enjoyed our meal here.

Nice food, good service, the ambience is a let down but overall very satisfactory. The empanadas were nice, a nice house wine, and gets pretty full by late night.

Visited this restaurant with several Argentinian friends during a recent visit to Salta for business. The restaurant is superb. It offers a wide selection of meat items and a great wine selection all very well priced. We had tons of food and lots of wine all for less than $40 per person. Salud!

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.
