Not sure what all the hype is about at this place. The waiters were kinda rude and unattentive, the prices are kinda high and the food left me ill for 3 days. I would stay away from this place.

Restaurant located in a very old and beautiful house, serving very good typical food, very popular with tourists, good attention, although there are better restaurants (but more expensive).

At here on our first night based on TA reviews, most probably one of the older restaurants in Salta, a delightful old building with the waiters dressed as gauchos, an incredibly popular place with everyone and worth a visit, although something's can be lost in translation, bife de chorizo was very good flank steak not good unfortunately, good chips overall...

Real tasty and traditional food! Waiter are dressed like gauchos and they are very kind. Empanadas, Locro and parrillada are the most recomenddable.

The restaurant was highly recommended. Easy to find, almost in from of the San Francisco church, open for lunch and dinner. Local dishes on the menu. Try the empanadas. Good wine list. Friendly waiters

We had empanadas, a steak and a stew. I'm not sure why this place is so highly ranked, but El Charrua has waaaaaaay better steaks.

We were recommended Doña Salta as a typical place to come and eat local cuisine and we were very happy with the experience. We could taste the original "empanadas", "tamales", "humitas" and "cazuela de cabrito" which were all very tasty! I definitely recommend this place.

Near the Iglesia San Francisco you can taste the delicious empanadas in Salta Province. In addition, a range of traditional dishes on the menu, you can also try goat. The atmosphere is excellent, but busy. After 21:00 it is quickly fully booked.
