Husband and wife run the place. Yes! Only, the two! However they do a great job! Super friendly, super romantic and cozy, super delicious and super... More

The ambiance, the food, the service and the price were fantastic! Mouth watering steaks, the grilled provoleta to die for, the wine fabulous and the flan was out of this world! My daughter and her boyfriend were living in Bariloche for a while and took us there for dinner and we loved it so much we had to go back... More

La Salamadra is the best restaurant in Bariloche. No doubt about it! The food is delicious and Renata and Geronimo, the owners, are very attentive and friendly. Don't miss the mushroom brusqueta and the Ojo del bife with salad...unforgetable!!!

Of all our meals in Argentina this was easily one of the top 2. We followed the advice of the May 13 review and requested an early seating, which really helped after a long day hiking around the area. La Salamandra is intimate with a small menu. The beef was amazing, and the vegetarian options excellent as well. You know... More

We were staying in Bariloche for a few days and this restaurant was recommended by our host. We were told to make a reservation because it is a very popular restaurant, especially with the locals. They responded quickly to a reservation request via email, but unfortunately, they were already booked full for the next evening. However, since we requested an... More

We ate here following a long day driving through the lakes of bariloche. The service was impeccable . Small menu which I like. Beef was divine. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening of dining. Highly recommended!

We spent three weeks touring Chile and Argentina and Salamandra rates in our top three dining experiences. The owner suggested my husband and I split mushroom bruschetta, empanadas and a steak, with salad, followed by a shared dulce de leche flan. All of this was paired with an amazing Malbec. The food was outstanding, the service down home and friendly,... More

Nice venue and owners. Good wine selection and very well cooked and good quality ribeye steak. The pork special was a bit dry.

Yes, the place is eclectic and cute. Yes, the owners are welcoming and provide fast service without being imposing. Most important: yes, their steak is to-die-for. It was, without doubt, the best steak I've eaten in my life. If this does not make you want to go there (make a reservation well in advance!), then, well... I can't help you.

Thank Daniel E
