Chances are, this will be one of the restaurants you visit during any extended trip to Junin. It is the most well known, and among the most reliable. We found the service to be prompt and friendly. North Americans will also find English speakers. I read some of the other TA reviews, and it's probably important for city slickers to... More

We ordered the parrilla chicken and it was small and dry - not up to previous times we have had it. In the past we have also had the salmon which was very good.

This prominent and popular restaurant by the main square serves a good choice of regional dishes, such as trout with lemon. On a second visit I had bife de chorizo and the portion was so big I couldn't finish it. Service was a bit hit and miss - either overly attentive or ignored when the restaurant was filling up.

It is average food in a place that even the look of food is subaverage. We reached Junin De Los Andes late afternoon and the only place promising cooked/grilled food promised to open at 8:30 and it did only slightly later. The place is huge it by 9 pm it was almost full. There is nothing else in the town... More

The Argentine food is expensive for Junin and only average. But, the middle eastern food makes a nice change and is consistently good

After climbing Volcan Lanin, we were keen to treat ourselves. Nuevo Ruca Hueney was just the spot to hit the diverse taste buds of our group. It is difficult to believe but there is a significant Middle Eastern community in Junin de los Andes. That is why this restaurant offers both traditional Argentine fare (parrilla BBQ) and Middel Eastern cuisine.... More

מסעדה מעולה. אוכל טוב. המנות קטנות מידי. אין מספיק מלצרים לכמות האנשים. Very good food. But the fact that the meals were to small We enjoyed

One would expect to find this restaurant in a MUCH larger town than Junin de los Andes (pop ~10K). The menu is varied, the quality is consistent, the atmosphere is very pleasant & the service is quite professional. At the same time, the small town friendliness is retained by the staff & management. They know what they are doing. One... More

The place is huge and not very cozy. However, at 9 pm it was full, the regional food is great and the service too. I definitely recommend it if you are in Junin! Not many other choices
