The food at this restaurant is pretty good, excellent presentation and taste. Variety and fresh ingredients (I've really enjoyed the tamales and humitas!) The staff service was just Ok, maybe is because they are always plenty of costumers. The visit worth it.

One of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in Argentina. The food was super-tasty and service excellent. Fully recommended.

For as it is the number one from San Salvador it's not that special. Food was good (good is not delicious) but the staff was very unfriendly. Restaurant is nice and has a good and local athmosphere. Maybe compared to everything else in the city it is outrageous- i don't know!

From the entry to the main course to the wine to the service. We really enjoyed this place. Portions was big enough to leave us a bit ashamed cause we could not handle them. We actually shared an entry and then took one main course each. Unfortunately we were both only able to get through 50% of the main courses.... More

So glad we went here, as appetizers and all food was so excellent and flavorful. I ordered Locro and wish I could go there for more. Local ingredients, home cooking, traditional and family recipes, nice menu, wine and beer, friendly waitress -- good vibe and place was packed shortly after we arrived.

We had llama meat, fish,salad and wine. Nothing fancy but solidly prepared. Bread was a little cold. Wish our wait staff would smile more. Restaurant closes on Mondays. Opens in the evening at 8pm.

Very tasty and you do not have to wait for the food for a long time. They serve the best local food or what we call in Spanish "Comida Regional"

It was said to be No.1 restaurant in Jujuy, so we really wanted to have lunch/dinner there. On monday night, it was closed by the time we arrived. The waiters didn't even attempt to tell us about the opening hours nor invite us for next day. Next day midday, we went again and same response

They are serving excellent regional and Argentine dishes and have a fair selection of wines. Empanadas and Llama loin steak were really tasty. Big portions, too! The staff were friendly (we had no problems communicating in English) and efficient and we did not wonder that this place was crowded with locals. Highly recommended!

Service is good but the food failed from what I was expecting. The bread wasn't at least heated before getting served. The place is lively, rustic, well-situated. Th3 price is also fair. Overrated because the restaurant is well-recommened for really good food. But no. The taste is Just Ok, although the serving is much! I couldn't finish my food.

Thank Kristine R
