We were looking for a fine dinning experience in Salta and was recommended Jose Balcarce. First impression was very positive with a great atmosphere and great staff. It is hard to exaggerate how professional and observing our waiter was throughout our dinner. The 3-star rating arose from the quality of our food. It simply did not live up to the... More

This was the best restaurant we visited in Salta. It opens at 1800, and this is very unusual; it is quiet before 2100. The waitress was friendly and welcoming and she speaks English. Good empanadas, salmon and prawns (Ceviche de salmon y langostinos), entrecôte with Malbec sauce and flambé pancake. The meal was preceded by an excellent amuse bouche. On... More

Had a lovely meal at Jose Balcarce after reading about it in an old Rough Guide, and wanfered by and had a quick chat with one of the staff. The menu was interesting (I.e. not just the usual Argentine cuisine clichés most places in Salta seemed to offer) and was tasty and generous portions for the going meal-out rate too.... More

This is definitely the best restaurant in Salta! Food is exquisite, tasty and creative, especially the empanadas and the llama dishes (the Andean flavor were a bliss after the monotonous menus from Buenos Aires). The wines from Cafayate make an excellent pairing. But this place truly deserves its five stars for its outstanding service. Our server, Alejandra, was extremely attentive... More

This restaurant was recommended by or tour guide - it did not disappoint. The service was amazing and we had an adorable waitress that was afraid to use her almost perfect English!! We started with empanadas, trout, and a Humita casserole - we could have eaten them all again if we hadn't ordered awesome entrees as well!! The quinoa ravioli... More

We had the pacu (fish) and braised kid and enjoyed them very much. Such a relief from empanadas and locro! Dessert also tempted us: a flambéed crepe and apple "pearls" on passion fruit mousse. Mmmmm!

Great food, no attitude, opens at 7pm already which is very unusual for Salta (and quite cool if you're a jet-lagged European looking for a decent dinner in a restaurant that opens before 8.30 pm). Excellent value for money, good wine list.
