We didn't eat here, but the food looked good. The place was packed - easily the most popular in Salta and recommended by everyone. The cocktails were good though and enabled us to gain access. Didn't expect to enjoy the "gaucho evening" but the singer/guitarists were amazing and played brilliantly and the dancers were full of life and a joy... More

I was in Salta last March 2016 and my visit at Vieja Estacion made my stay very very special. I had dinner and show of Pena dance and music and it was spectacular. Food was excellent, the setting fascinating and the dancer ,dressed with tipical costumes very impressive. I had the sensation to go back to older time in Argentina.... More

Visited la Vieja Estacion with some friends and had a blast. Excellent empanadas and menu choices. Very good wine list. Dancers and folk singers late in the evening made for a wonderful night.

We went to the peña show at Vieja Estacion our first night in Salta and enjoyed it. The place is a bit touristy, with a mix of Argentine tourists and a few international tourists. The show was a selection of typical NW Argentina dance and music performances, all upbeat and a good presentation. The place fills up, so get there... More

We had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed a terrific Pena. The meal was one of the best we have had in Argentina and the entertainment was terrific.

Upon arrival it seemed like everything would be good. But once it started to get crowded we never saw our waiter again...the food was ok but nothing special. Our drinks were never refilled, we were never asked if we needed anything and we did not stick around for dessert. The "show" was a variety show that was extremely awkward with... More

Our last night in Salta and Argentina, so we wanted a memorable experience. La Vieja Estacion did not disappoint. I'm typically hesitant with "dinner shows" because they tend to be touristy with mediocre food. Not the case with this place. The food was very good, generous portioned and extremely good value for the price. Nothing fancy, but very good local... More

Very good traditional dance and music, excellent performers! One huge room, but still cosy and intimate. A place for everyone, families with babies and grandparents as well as couples and young people. Locals sing together with the musicians. A highlight in Salta. No entrance fee and reasonably priced food, good service. We returned a second time for the show and... More

We stopped for a quick dinner, if desired with addition of 100 pesos each one could also attend the show all night, we took a Lomo Salteño (ojo de Bife with a tower of eggplant and potatoes) the meat was very good and tenera.il average service ok, the price always outstanding, for accompanying all must play beer Salta!
