We LOVED this place! Not only because the food was wonderful but the service and the charm of the establishment went above our expectations. Is the menu small? Sure, but what they make is all cooked to perfection. The empanadas were the best I have ever eaten, ANYWHERE and the steak was fantastic. What really puts this place over the top is that we never felt rushed, although there are only 9 tables and the owner was generous enough with her time to write down places we should try in Mendoza. We spent two weeks in Argentina and we can honestly say that this was one of our favorite nights out!

Everyone talks about this place. It's okay, but I was unimpressed, both times. The last time I had a choripan (sausage in bread), and frankly the guy in the centre of town with a hot-dog stand has a finer offering. the atmosphere is good, the service is good, and it's not overly expensive. But given the choice in Bariloche, there are better places to visit, without needing to make a reservation. It's certainly un-complicated, with a simple menu. It's a nice place, but doesn't justify the hype.

La Salamandra is a fabulous restaurant. We were made so welcome from the moment we arrived. It is such a cosy place you just don't want to leave and because of this we went back a second time. The service was fantastic and nothing was too much bother. We had homemade empanadas to start with which were to die for and main course you have to try the steak def the best one I have ever had.salamander was far and away the best restaurant we went to in Bariloche and deserves every success.

This is how we expect a nice restaurant to be: It's personal, uncomplicated, yet of very good quality in terms of service and food/drinks. Couldn't ask for more. The ribeye steak was better than any we tried in Buenos Aires, especially since it did not come with fat fries, but with a decent salad.
Thanks for a wonderful dinner (though it was too short). Hope to come back and try the other offered main courses.

Being quite early eaters at least compared to most Argentinians we were lucky to get a table on the very same day we asked for the reservation. Still it's better to reserve a few days in advance because this place is incredible and very popular obviously. First of all the couple running this cuite, very nicely furnished restaurant are super nice, even though we don't speak Spanish at all. Their English is perfect however :). The owner translated the menu for us and helped us make our decision. Steak for my boyfriend, mushrooms on ciabatta for myself and we shared the crispy potatoe chips dish. For both of us it was definitely among the best meals we've had in more than 13 months of travelling all over the world - simply amazing! Would have loved to try desert but we were a little too full. Made a reservation for next weeks within minutes of finishing our meal :). Cannot recommend this great place too much!
