Description: Jauja Restaurant and Grill is one of the oldest and most traditional restaurants in San Carlos de Bariloche, with over 30 years of uninterrupted activity. This has led them to have a very caring customer treatment and a very extensive menu, with the aim to offer variety and service, both to tourists and residents; therefore, in our menu, apart from the traditional cuts of Argentina grill and Patagonian lamb special, you will see two types of trout of the area, Chilean salmon, Spanish squid, fried calamari, shrimp and haddock Atlantic. Pasta varieties: vegetable ravioli, pumpkin or trout, sorrentinos, lasagna. Typical dishes of European cuisine cuts alternate with hunting deer and wild boar. They are also classic smoked trout, deer, boar and lamb, venison and lamb patties, as their variety in desserts make up a large and sober menu. Accompanied by a dozen Argentine wineries that make a balanced menu Rutini wines, Nieto & Senetiner, Terrazas de los Andes, End of the World, Rock, Las Perdices, Tomero or Andeluna, make a wide range of alternatives.

“Disappointingly average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

Place was rather mediocre and lacked personal touch, service I attentive.
Food was average, pumpkin soup ok, empanadas ok, venison fillet lacked panache and salmon was very average, with jacket potatoes also very average.

“Jauja, still a classic in Bariloche”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

being local, and being a cook, I have to say that Jauja, is one of the classics in Bariloche...service, atmosphere, is relevant...plus their wide variety of very good dishes makes them one of my favorites restaurants in town,

“Big&tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

Went to Bariloche in february to ran a trail race. Wandering around the city I dined a couple of nights in Jauja, a friendly place a couple of blocks from the main street. The lasagna is awesome, It is good that you walk all day and the mountain air makes you hungry, otherwise it is impossible to finish it. Another day I had a great steak, very tender. Prices are very reasonable and the owner, José, is a friendly character and knows a lot about wines. I had a great Angelica Zapata Malbec. Best way to finish a day in Bariloche.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

Our guide suggested that we try Jauja because one member of our group wanted lamb . . . the others wanted to try the trout and Jauja has a menu that can satify anyone - at least 8 pages long. That said, the fish was dry and overcooked although my husband's lamb was excellent. However, the service was inattentive.

“Nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

This restaurant was a suggestion of our tour guide when we viited Bariloche in january 2012 and, even though we are always concerned that these suggestions are most of the times well rewarded to the suggestors, we decided to go and we were extremely surprised to find a very good restaurant with an impeccable service, classy atmosphere and very reasonable prices. Many thanks to our waiter who suggested us a perfect wine for the fish dishes we had and professionaly attended our table with discretion. Definitely a restaurant to remember.
