Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We came here based on the good reviews we read and the exciting look and ambiance. Our llama and lamb stews were excellent and the live music was a fun surprise.

My Dad is notoriously difficult diner, fair as he was a chef for 30 years, but difficult nonetheless. We traveled Northern Argentina for two weeks and this was far and away the best meal we had the whole time (including our meal at Bodega Colome)....We went back a second night because the food and the atmosphere was so exceptional, the authenticity of the owner/chefs was palpable and we got the feeling that they were cooking what they wanted rather than catering to the whims of the tourists who make up the lions share of their clientele. I was reminded of this dining experience watching Parts Unknown - Quebec, where Tony visits L'affaire de Ketchup, a small, cramped restaurant where the cooks prepare whatever they want on four burner house kitchen stoves. This place is the real deal. Don't miss it.More

Cosy restaurant with very nice staff truly caring about their customers. They even advise you to share a starter and a main course! So we did, the provoleta and lama stew were delicious, just like the wine. Highly recommended!

There is not 1 room, but several small rooms where you can eat. At first the waitress was very slow and uninterested, but finally we got a smile. The food was nice, not what we expected though, so that was a surprise. Still, the taste...was good.More

Good service, excellent food, nice location and the kids could play a old frog game. So an excellent experience, do keep in mind that the plates are huge (they really are) so it is perfect for sharing

Unfortunately i cannot recommend this place. The lady who helped us was correct, but didn’t seem like she wanted to be working that night. We asked for more information about the artists of the paintings on the wall, she said she was going to check...but never mentioned it again (we were btw the only customers in the restaurant). We didn’t get any bread beforehand, which is unusual in Argentina. I ordered a salad which was fine but not more than that, afterwards i realized they didn’t serve it with bread (even if it said so on the menu). My boyfriend’s Milanese wasn’t too good either, according to him. I wouldn’t return for a second time.More

Best restaurant in Tilcara. Small, cosy with a cool variety of areas to sit as it appears to be a converted home (including a small wine cellar). Food was next level good. Get the pastel de llama. Cooked pretty much in-front of you and you...could tell that the owners were enjoying what they do. helpful and funny.More
