Very good steaks indeed. Don’t be surprised by the cover charge which pays for the ‘show’ that starts around 10.30pm. The women’s dancing was a tame version of the Spanish equivalent - the male dancing was unlike anything I have ever seen before!

If you are in Salta I recommend you to enjoy the night to the sounds of the local folclore music of the bands that perform in this nice traditional restaurant. Any night is the right one to be there.

Quite a large venue in a part of town with many such. Generally recommended as the best of the bunch. We, being Irish, are well used to shows of this type aimed at tourists, domestic and international. That said, the presentation, artistes, sound system etc....More

We listened to all the reviews of this place and made this a destination in Salta. The food was average (if you go, only order the empanadas, they are the only decent thing on the menu). The place is a big hall with a stage...More
