  • Restaurante Colorado: Something different

    by masrv Updated Aug 26, 2009

    We found this place one our visit to Cafayate towards the end of our trip and wished we found it earlier! We went every night after we found it! They had great music with a very chill environment, cool art and comfortable chairs. The bathrooms were clean and huge, although we had to go outside to go to them.

    Favorite Dish: We were used to eating steak and potatoes and we were excited to get a fresh grilled chicken salad one night and a Tai Curry Chicken the next! Plus, their desserts are out of this world - if you go try the "pizooki" - it's a chocolate chip cookie cooked fresh with ice cream on top. They have some local dishes but we stuck to the things we couldn't get anywhere else like nachos and guacomole. They had wine flights where we were able to try a bunch of different types of wines made in Cafayate with a full bar and micro-brew beer.

    Helados Miranda: Wine Ice Cream

    by barryg23 Updated Feb 22, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Helados Miranda is well-known in Cafayate for its wine flavoured ice-cream. Ice creams here are a little pricier than in other heladerias (though still good value), but where else can you get the chance to try wine ice-cream.

    It's very difficult to choose between the cabernet (red) flavour and the torrontes (white) flavour, so we had to try both. Delicious! And they both taste quite strongly of wine.

    Baco

    by barryg23 Updated Feb 22, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We didn't eat out too often in Cafayate as our hostel had a kitchen, but one night the cooker was broken so out we ventured. We went to Boca, a cheap and popular restaurant, one block north of the main square.

    There's a good selection of dishes here, such as local specialities like empanadas, humalas and tamitas, as well as pizzas, pasta and beef, and the prices are very reasonable.

    The drinks menu offers wines from the local bodegas, which are well worth trying. There is a nice seating area out front, a nice place to pass the evening when the weather is fine (as it usually is in Cafayate).

    El Criollo: Nice little resto in Cafayate

    by Luchonda Updated Oct 8, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A nice little restaurant located at the central street in Cafayate and not for from the central Plaza
    Correct and friendly service

    Favorite Dish: Just local food and a good glass of Argentina wine, red or white
    We had a pasta as main dish and Marmelade with nuts as dessert, simple but delicious.
    Remarkable that during my trip in Argentina, north or south, i never found spaghetti as pasta, just raviolli ot tagliatelli. Rather strange knowing that Argentina "Gourmet" is influenced by italian and spanish food.

    Posta de las Cabras: A goat sheeper changed his job

    by Luchonda Updated Oct 7, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A very good location before entering the "Quebrada de Cafayate". An intermediate stop worthed on the road. The owner changed his job and goat farm due to the upcoming tourism
    and his age.

    Favorite Dish: Here you can have your classical café chico (P2.50), a café doble (P3.00), bebidas like Agua or ..
    - Sandwiches :
    De la Posta (P6.00)
    Del Campo (P5.00)
    - Vinos de Cafayate
    Copa de Malbec (P5.00)
    Copa de vino Regional (P3.00)
    They also serve a pallet of cakes, known as confiteria (bakery), in short "Brownies" with local fruit, a local tradition in Argentina to eat a lot of bakery.
