Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Big steakhouse with several dining rooms. Staff is friendly and attentive. They’d serve different kind of meat plus salad and side buffet. The meat is very good, tasteful and tender. The sides are not very good. They have en extensive wine list with all main...wines of the region. Recommended for good meat if you don’t care about the side dishes.More

We chose this restaurant based on the reviews here. We were quite disappointed in the quality of the meat. The salad bar is a nice option, but the self serve sides left a lot to be desired.

The best steak you’ll ever have, seriously. I’ve had great steak in Argentina, and Nicaragua, but El Fogón De Gringo is the best steak I have ever had. It’s the best kept secret in culinary art. You can’t come to Tarija and not eat here....It would be a sin.More

It's number one in Tarija for a reason - it's delicious and the service is good too. We went twice, once for dinner and once for lunch - both times, great steaks and service. A salad bar is included and I would say it's ok...- iceberg lettuce, fresh tomatoes, lima beans, and a hot bar with rice and potatoes. But the steak is the star, and they have an ample wine list too.More

We ate at this restaurant twice while in Tarija, once for breakfast and once for lunch. Both meals were excellent and the service was also great. They have a great selection. I would definitely go again.

Stayed a few nights in Tarija, Bolivia while visit daughter and husband who live in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. This restaurant was terrific! The steak was excellent and the salad bar wonderful. Since it’s not always safe to eat vegetables in places in Bolivia, we relished...the fresh , safe veggies here!More

Excellent choice for meat and wine, prices are affordable, and the steaks are really good. The salad bar is not bad. The wine list is very good, and with very good prices.

I loved this restaurant! The atmosphere and service are perfect, warm and welcoming yet efficient and professional. The salad bar by itself is great - large, varied and delicious, with many choices for vegetarians. The best part of the meal was the steak, bife de...chorizo, perfectly cooked to order, tender and rich in flavor. We shared the large cut of beef and washed it down with an excellent Tannat from Aranjuez, which is the quintessential tannat in Tarija. We can't wait to return!More

This is a steak place with a salad bar and hot sides. The restaurant was busy and the service was excellent. I order a ribeye steak medium rare and was cooked perfectly but the meat was so tough that you could not eat it. My...business partner ordered the filet medium rare and it was also so tough you could not eat it. We were extremely disappointed. I can not recommend this restaurant.More

A place specialized in steak, one of the best ones in Tarija, the meat was thick and evenly cooked keeping the color of the meat, the taste was wonderful and the meat was tender. They offer a salad bar with 8 different options for salads...and they also have rice and some potatoes. Definitely a place to try in Tarija if you love to eat meat.More

We wanted to have some good steak...and we got it! It was really delicious, one of the best I had in South America. The staff was nice and proffesional and could give a good advice about the wine. Also a buffet with tasty salads and...rice/pototoes. A bit more expensive, but totally worth it.More

This was a great restaurant, bit up market, but overall good value. Huge steaks and free salad bar, if you have any space. Good Bolivian wine list and reasonable prices.
