Good service but no one spoke English. One of us fortunately knew enough... Casual; very basic fare - empanadas the house specialty and good. Clean. VERY cheap = Dinner for 4 with drinks and tip was USD38.

Visited the fanciest restaurant in town to have a good dinner after a long busride. But oh my, what a bad choice this place was. My girlfriend went for the salad La Posta. And everything that could go wrong with a salad, also went wrong. The dressing that should've come with the salad (pesto with mint) wasn't in the salad.... More

Great traditional regional food. A little bit tourist style but food is still good Don t miss Llama. Also try empanadas. If you can, try to seat outside; you will get a better experience

La Posta is the sister restaurant to the Hosteria Terrazas de la Posta, where we stayed, so they gave a 10% discount. Friendly. We went twice. Once for dinner and once for tea/dessert. I got a regional dish with chicken, yellow rice, dried potatoes and regular potatoes. Regular good. He got lomo – the regular 1 ½ inch. Wasn’t as... More

The quality of the food was good and we didn't have to wait long given that it was a busy day. The busy afternoon may also explain why the staff weren't very helpful.

We visited this restaurant as recommended by our hotel, but were very disappointed. The food was average to poor, the service very slow an uninterested, and the atmosphere very dull. Clearly a tourist trap

I strongly recommend this restaurant, at noon or night it won't disappoint you! The attention is great, the waiters are very friendly, the menu is excellent and it's cheap. If you go at noon and the day is nice, try to go the little court on the inside, it's so pretty!! The empanadas are awesome and los bifes de chorizo... More

The ambient and service are optimum, Menu has traditional northen argentinian colonial cuisine, there are also a few international dishes ( poultry, meat and pastas). Wines are a short but good regional selection. Prices are unexpensive Is a must to pay a visit to this place, you 'll not be dissapointed

We had dinner here, the restaurant was not too busy for a Tuesday night. The empanadas both meat and queso were yummy with a nice salsa and an aubergine pickle. The beef and home frites were excellent as was the Llama with Andean potatoes. No room for desserts unfortunately, we thought the meal was good value.
