Whilst recommended we decided to have pizza's which were frankly not great, very salty and not very flavoursome. We ate outside as the band inside were very loud and the bass was booming, so any sort of conversation would have been prohibitively difficult. Given the choice around we would not return.

Great for sitting outside on a summer night for pizza and beer and people watching (have also heard they have other great food options too). A little expensive compared to other corner-pizza shops but it's worth it. The veggie pizza was delicious!

Café del tiempo offers in addition to an exquisite and varied gastronomy, a cozy place where to enjoy the Salta´s night, listening very good music, generally jazz and covers bands. It is located in the heart of the Balcarse street, where Saltas night lives.

We've enjoyed the staff service at this place. The food was just ok. When we arrived the only serve beers, so be prepared. Good place to talk with friends.

Since it's close to my hotel I have eaten 2 dinners here. Food is good enough to be expected from a beer house. Nice atmosphere and they accept Visa payments is a plus. If you are looking for high class food, yes you better look for somewhere else, but the food and the service is just as it's supposed to... More

Great venue, very different than other restaurants in the city. Overall solid options for drinks and small plates. Service while sitting at the bar was barely adequate. On food front, I'd skip and move on to another restaurant. I had the braised ribs, poorly prepared (way too much fat left untrimmed) and side greens barely edible. Much potential here but... More

Ordered the Salad Wonka with smoked salmon. Salmon was old and dry. Even when complaining there was no reaction. I attach a picture of the salmon (unedible), you can make your own opinion. I would never ever have food there again.

Cafe del Tiempo is a bar/restaurant at 2 different locations in Salta. We had dinner at Guemes our first evening and really enjoyed the service, the food, the wine (from Miraluna, apparently belonging to the same owner of the Cafe) and the music, so on our last evening we went back to it at Balcarce and had another very positive...
