“Best of the Average Cafayate Restaurants”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Nice place to eat outside or inside. Service is friendly. Atmosphere comfortable. Menu is confusing because there are two; the "gourmet" and "pedestrian" - frankly I could not figure out why they needed to be separated but confusion is often par for the course in Argentina. We ate here couple times during the course of week. I ordered rucula with quinoa each time which although was not on menu was created for me. The quinoa in this area is really good. One night I tried a chicken cutlet breaded in quinoa which was different and unique so fun. Our three year old devoured the lomo so he liked it. I ordered bife de chorizo which was little tough but grilled well. My wife had the Salmon which she reported was quite good. Another night she had quinoa soup which she also reported was excellent and again unique. She also tried a few of their salads which she liked. Most importantly, traveling with 3 year old is never easy but this place made it easy for us in every way.

“Great service but very touristic”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

We went to this restaurant after reading the reviews and to be honest I think this restaurant is a bit overrated. The service was very nice indeed, the food however is very average and therefore over priced compared to other restaurants. The place is only visited by tourists so you would almost forget you are in Cafayate.
Overall I think it's a good and safe place to eat but if you look a bit beyond the plaza you will find some very nice restaurants with better food, atmosphere and a bit more local ambiance.

“Great restaurant!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Food is very good, service as well, and they serve some of the best wines around, try Bodega El Porvenir "Laborum" 2005. Try to get a table outside, and be sure to make a reservation if you come after 9pm.

It's not the cheapest option around, but definitely one of the best!

“Excellent Food and Friendly Service”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

As a change from the usual parrilla this is a great place to go in Cafayate. On the main square. Probably a wee bit more expensive but worth it. Great fish dishes. Very friendly service. Definitely to be recommended

“Good Restaurant for a Small Town”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

It's a good restaurant, but not great. The service is usually very good, with Miguel in charge and everyone is always so friendly here. The food is sometimes great and other times misses the mark. I work here in Cafayate on and off and I always eat here a few times during my visit.
