This is an upscale restaurant and you will be charged for bread/butter and table setting regardless if you want it… this charge is not uncommon in top restaurants in Argentina. Here it was 20 peso, not that much. At “La Querencia Restaurant” the service was very good, the ambience very nice and the food was wonderful. I had the special... More

We shared the short beef ribs for dinner - enough for two, + a sparkling water, salad and a half-bottle of good Mendoza malbec - very enjoyable for $AR 518. We also had tried the omelette for lunch - not so good - definitely recommend the parilla!

After a long day of walking around it was nice to sit down and enjoy a well cooked piece of steak. The staff were very considerate of how long the food would take to cook and informed us about the wait. Everything we ate was delicious. It's a very family friendly restaurant but also cosy enough for two.

This is a really good restaurant, with a broad menu and excellent service. Portions are huge, so you may want to share a portion or just order appetizers / tapas.

In a country with such delicious steaks, who would have though a chicken dish would be such a highlight... A little light on for English, but who cares, the waiter's poor English, my poor Spanish, a few hand signals and pointing, and the Galeto was ordered.. so succulent and delicious, and in a town with not many options, do yourself...

Before going to Posadas I was told that I should try the "Galeto" at La Querencia restaurant. Well, I did. Galeto is chicken cut in squares, stuffed with bacon and red pepper, and cooked like a brochette: on a spike over the fire, with tomato pieces between the chicken squares and grated parmesan cheese. Indeed a delight!

La Querencia is a classic! Don't miss the opportunity to eat at this restaurant while visiting Posadas. Staff are very friendly and the place is always packed. Their galleto (chicken) is the best I've tried. Highly recommended!!

If you find yourself in the center of Posadas in 90 degree heat and 90% humidity and you just need to chill, step into La Querencia - just off Plaza Nueve de Julio. You will be treated to a cool blast of air and a wait staff that will take care of you for as long as you care to... More

I had dinner at this restaurant and although the service was very good, my steak was rather average.
