“Great fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

We went there on recommendation from some Argentinians who were also visiting Salta from the South and we were not disappointed! The service was friendly and the patrons at the other tables were also warm and made us feel very welcome being possibly the only foreigners there (besides a few Brazilians). We were asked to dance by the troupe and go on the stage to be introduced to the other diners. The musical groups were very good and big shout-out to the all-ladies group of Irma who put up an incredible show which was a combination of stand-up comedy, music, dance and patriotism. We loved the song about Juana Azurduy as we learnt about the history of Alto Peru. Highly recommended to complete your Salta visit!

“Good food, great show, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

The food is very good - we are veggie and although this place is really for meat eaters we found the veggie food tasty and the wine was really good too. The show was brilliant, live music, dancing and some films too. Best value night out on the town, very good night we arrived at 21ish and left after midnight, you may need to book to get a good table - good food, very good company and an excellent show.

“A major disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

We were looking for a peña where we could hear live traditional music and ended up at La Panadería del Chuña at the recommendation of our hotel. During the two hours we endured, I don't think we heard more than 40 minutes of live music. During the rest of the time, we were subjected to videos of the owner posing for the camera while hugging disabled children, videos about how great he is, how great the peña is, a video of Michael Jackson (really??!!!), a bunch of people who came out in masks for the sole purpose of having their photos taken with guests, and (the highlight of the night) a very funny ventriloquist and his dummy. And for this, we paid a hefty cover charge on top of the cost of dinner. There are lots of peñas on Avenida Balcarce. If you are looking for folkloric music, don't waste your time and money at this bloated shrine, dedicated to the owner's ego.
