We took friends visiting from the U.S. for the tango show, which is the only one we could find in San Martin. We had read the T.A. reviews about the less-than-stellar food, so buyer beware. I went in the day before and reserved for the tango show, to arrive the next evening at 9:30PM. I got to pick the best table, which they did, indeed, save for us! The atmosphere was lovely, the singer and tango performers very friendly, and our friends loved the genuine taste of Argentina. They ordered the smoked trout ravioli in cream sauce, and my husband the vegetable, chicken ravioli, all of which were fine. My Patagonian lentil stew was watery and not very flavorful, but I am also comparing to the same dish at Pura Vida in El Calafate and La Tapera, which were outstanding. You can't go to Argentina without experiencing tango and this is the place in San Martin!

This place has two restaurants in San Martin, I believe. One is near the plaza and the larger one is on Villegas. We went (twice) to the second one, since it was closer to our hotel and it looked a bit nicer. The atmosphere might not be excellent, it is one of those huge restaurants, but service is good and they have an English menu (if you need that). The menu itself is huge and offers everything from all the meat you can think of, to pastas, pizzas, and local specialities.

The main dishes are reasonably priced, especially for San Martin. We had the Patagonian lamb for 2, which was very good. The salades are a bit expensive compared to what you get for it. The second time we went, we got the wild boar and deer plates. These were slightly more expensive and maybe not as much as the parrilla meat, but it tasted great, especially the deer.

We found this place to be a good choice in San Martin with good food and fair prices.

The Tango show that was going on there can do better without the food we had in this place. The Provilone cheese was very good. The chicken not bad. I made a big mistake ordering trout which was over cooked dry and not tasty. The flan was OK. The prices are between 20-50$ per p.

Posta Criolla is a newer restaurant, but with comfortable and attractive appointments. Menu is regional Paagonian, with a good selection of grill. Service is good, Very solid offering in San Martin.
