Randomly ran across this place while celebrating our anniversary, all I can say it Wow! What a gem, a great mix of local and international fusion. Next time we are in Salta we will come here. The only complaint I have it they do not accept credit cards, which I find absolutely crazy.

We had just arrived to Salta in the evening and were staying at Legato Mitico Hotel. The hotel manager suggested and booked this restaurant located very near by. The concept of Jose Balcarce is to revisit traditional Argentinian dishes with a very modern and light touch. The whole experience was absolutely perfect. The food and the wine were outstanding and... More

I visited this restaurant with some members of my tour group. It seemed a cut above most restaurants we ate at including in Salta. Nice food and good service.

This Andean fusion restaurant is blessed with a beautiful interior but, sadly, even on a Saturday night lacked atmosphere due to lack of clientele. This is probably because it is off the main drag of restaurants in Salta. A great pity, because the food was amongst the most original eaten in our Argentinian trip. The menu is on the small...

Although our Spanish is very poor we were warmly welcomed and had the menu explained to us, including pronunciation tips! As "amuse bouche" we had delicious smoked corn soup with sunflower puree. Between us we tasted empanadas, llama carpaccio, llama steaks, beef filet and fish. Dessert was homemade sorbet and mousse of dulce de leche. Although the price was high... More

The restaurant has an attractive appearance and the atmosphere is very pleasant. The woman who was in charge of the restaurant was extremely warm and made every effort to explain the different dishes. The menu is essentially local cuisine done with great style. Our salmon with ginger was outstanding as were the sides of vegetables and quinoa. The empanadas were... More

Three people had recommended this cash only restaurant so we felt we should try it. I always looked at hotels in terms of the number of light bulbs blown in the lobby, and I should have heeded my instinct when I saw two bulbs blown in the arrival chandelier. However we were well pleased with the amuse bouche, and our... More

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
