Very nice decor. Meat (no less short rib) is heavenly. Tender and full of flavor. Perfectly grilled vegetables finish up th main course. Even the warm rolls are delicious. Great service and very reasonable priced.

If you are into lovely beef This uraguayan restaurant is it. Skip the starters and go straight for the tender beef along with a good glass of wine

For apps, we had the empanadas. Good but I prefer Chilean ones. For the main course, we ordered the Parrilada Completa. Great cuts of meat and the sweetbreads were some of the best I've tasted. No funkyness and nice crunch. Very reasonably priced as well. The staff are attentive and the atmosphere was nice (not crowded). We will be back... More

Nice place to go with family or friends. I was there with my family. As appetizer we ordered the Provoleta that normally is an aged Mozzarella. Unfortunately I think they serve us Mozzarella or a very young Provoleta. I was very disappointed. As main dish we order “Parrillada Completa”. The chorizo, morcilla and mollejas were very good, the seasoning of... More

This was our first visit to Saldivia's and from the outside it does not look like much. This is partially because of the location in a corner of a strip mall and partially because of the ongoing renovations of the buildings exterior. However, once you enter you find a very nicely decorated and clean establishment. The food is excellent as... More

It is a bit assuming in from the outside. In an average strip mall that is currently undergoing some renovations. But it is very pleasing on the inside. Spacious, dark paneled interior with nice bar. We had a business lunch. I had the bacon rapped shrimp with rice. Very good. All meals come with salad and bread. Our server was... More

My family and friends loved everything about Saldivias! The steak is super juicy and tender! The mixed grill--delicious! You can't go wrong with the Tiramisu for dessert!!! Several nights they have live performances. You can sit where it isn't too loud or right in the midst. Wonderful place for romance, entertaining friends or family. There's even a wine room! Awesomeness!

Our foursome had a great time sampling the dishes here. My partner and I enjoyed the beef steak, flat ribs, sweet meats, blood sausage and pork sausage. Out meal came with a side of grilled potatoes, summer squashes and carrot. Excellent choice. We got to try a lot. Even though it is South American, the ambiance was typical of Europe.... More
