This is not only the best parilla in Santiago, but a lot of other places too. The bife de chorizo was superb. Perfectly cooked, no excess fat, no gristle. Service was excellent; friendly and fast. Prices less than I would ever have imagined, more than fair. I would highly recommend this place if you're looking for a great value meal in Santiago!

El lugar es divino, muy finamente decorado, la comida me parecio bien del estilo gourmet y el precio no es elevado, recomendable!

Just a few blocks from the main square of the city, is this well run "Parrilla". A renovated old house, this barbecue restaurant offers traditional meat dishes with sizeable portions and good quality.
Service wise, its very well run. The waiters are very helpful and attentive; the ambience has a rustic look, and there is enough space to have a nice dinner without been bother. I went a couple of times with my family and we try to order as much as we can, trying different dishes and options.
The salads and side dishes are big and enough to share for a couple. The meat cuts are very good but try to avoid the steaks since it might be a little hard and overcook since its not something usually order. Try to order the typical cuts, like Vacio and Tira.
English is rare in the entire northwest so rely on your guests and the occasional sign language. Open at night and late, so go after 22pm. Very good overall.

Really nice refurbish train station. The place is just in front of the bus terminal and in the middle of a huge newly made convention centre.
This bar its a typical argentinean style cafe that serves some small sandwiches and bar food. In fact, its more like a coffee place rather than a bistro but the place is very nice. You would not find a better place to have a coffee and its in the nicest area of the city. If you would like a place to relax and work I would strongly recommend it. By far the best place.

One of the few restaurants in the City its just a few meters shy to the right of the Santiago del Estero Cathedral. They have an executive menu during the lunch time from Mondays to Fridays for a reasonable price including a drink. The staff is very friendly but not bilingual but they try their best.
The food is good. By far the best dishes are the meat dishes and the home made meals. Pasta's are not recommend it and would avoid it. The salad bar its okay and its give you a healthy side choice besides the typical fries. They usually don't rush the service so if you are in a hurry, tell them, cause usually you would spent more than an hour eating there (like the locals do). Prices are okay even if you eat from the full menu.
Good overall experience. Would come again for sure.

As a place to eat in Santiago del Estero, the Coventry restaurant is one of the better choices even if the service is slow. I've eaten at this place on and off for over twenty years and I really wish they would motivate themselves to change the menu. The food is predictable but at least eatible. On my last visit I had trout...definitely from the freezer and never caught in the local Rio Dulce.

Also here, the atmosphere is that of a feeding place. The food is ok but just misses that touch to make it impress. Seems to obey to the general mood of this town. To much used to receive tourists to improve on quality.
