I really don't know how this place has a relatively good rating. I'm just going to run through the dinner: My friend ordered the spinach lasagna. It was spearmint green. Edible yes, but nothing more than edible and it came with powdered cheese in a packet. Another friend ordered the goat. It was bad. At least half of it was... More

Very fresh salads, and really good grilled items, including beef and chicken. We went there for two dinners. On both occasions, the place was empty at 8 PM when it opened, but was packed by 8:45. Most of the baked dishes had cream sauces as did many of the vegetable dishes and In every case there was way too much... More

This restaurant is very well located but not good at all. We went one night for dinner. There weren't many people at the tables. They took quite a long time to attend on us and then took ages once we had ordered. For dessert we asked for some pears with mint, which was in the menu and it sounded great.... More

This is a lovely restaurant with an inviting ambience. They have a very varied menu and attentive waiters. Our waiter left a little box on our table and if we required anything there was a little button to push - and a different button when we wished to pay the bill. The restaurant is simply but beautifully decorated. The food... More

We went to this restaurant the first night we were in Salta . The food was good and the service was O.K but the staff did not seem happy and only seemed to be doing their jobs which they did not like.

This is a great spot for lunch, air conditioned, nice decor and early photos of Salta on the walls. Great wifi spot. Lunch was HUGE, very good and the service was above standard, going as far as serving you "a la pince" table side. Would go again for supper if we were staying in Salta centro. Hope this review was... More

The name of the restaurant implies the hospitality of the gaucho. The restaurant displays a rustic decor but with style-several rooms, white walls with artisan pictures and several cabinets with memorabilia displayed. Waiters are well dressed in a dressy gaucho style. The restaurant is clearly well considered in the local community as I saw several family groups dining in a... More

La Gauchada restaurant is located a short walking distance form the main plaza in Salta and within easy walking distance from most main hotels. It is located on Dean Funes street and the building is very nice from the outside, good signage and easy to locate. My girlfriend and I ate here last night and were very impressed with both... More

Very good food, fantastic steaks and quick service. The ambience was also much appreciated. We asked our hotel for a local and good restaurant in the city center and got what we asked for.
