The asado was great! The service was great! Has a great selection of wines! The location is right in front of the San Martin Plaza (main square). I recommend this place to family and friends.

Our tour only gave us an hour of free time in San Martin, so the quick and friendly service was highly appreciated. I ordered a Patagonian lamb stew, which was more like a thick soup, but delicious. My wife ordered grilled lamb, a great taste though a bit sparse on the meat. Prices were fair. Best of all, it is... More

I loved this place, I got the grilled lamb and was just outstanding, very good Smokey flavor. The service very good and fast, the price was ok for a place just in downtown. Highly recommended.

I had eaten at Posta Criolla Plaza 2 weeks ago and absolutely loved it. Both the food and the service were top notch. I expected the same here since it is the sister restaurant to the Plaza. I ordered Bife de Chorizo with Agridulce sauce. The cut of meat was the saddest bife de chorizo I have seen in the... More

As many tourist areas the prices are high. But I must say the great service and additional help with a food allergy made it worth the cost. It is a rare treat for us to eat out without a gluten cross contamination but the chef made the meal with fresh oil to fry the potatoes Español. Many thanks to the... More

If you go to Patagonia you should try the grilled lamb. Is special, different taste of any other part in the world.

Only restaurant in town that had available tables for NYE dinner. We enjoyed ringing in the new year at this restaurant.

We took friends visiting from the U.S. for the tango show, which is the only one we could find in San Martin. We had read the T.A. reviews about the less-than-stellar food, so buyer beware. I went in the day before and reserved for the tango show, to arrive the next evening at 9:30PM. I got to pick the best... More
