Short answer - nope

Quick review...

Salta changed the menu - their appetizers are no longer "buffet" but an individual order - only one per diner; only 4 grilled meats, some pasta (4 if I am not wrong) and desserts are free flow...

As a result, the place was super empty - we were the only table (except a guy who dined alone but he left after 20 mins) for a good hour until another group came in...

On to the food, 4 of ordered beef tongue which came served as a salad - not bad but being us, not enough

Samba ordered the carpacio beef - still looks good but only individual order...so we didn't try

While I don't care much for sausages, it was not available as a buffet item...so that scored some negative points...

On to the main event - the grilled meats...the lamb and pork loins came up tops, followed by the chicken and then the sirloin steak (most complained that it was too tough - it was okay for me)...

But I need to qualify myself, the earlier batches (a bit salty until we told them to go easy on the salt) were better and the standard deteriorated towards the end...

Then again, it could be a hint for us to stop and GO

Dessert was unspectacular - a lot of cakes (only Samba tried), some cheese (we swiped the accompanying strawberries and blueberries), a liquidified tiramisu and a cocktail glass of fruit salad (the unripe mango was damn sour)...

At the end of the meal, the 5 of us polished off 60 pieces of meat...

But I think two of us left not entirely full - they just got tired of chewing on meat (which got increasingly tougher - was it a challenge?)...

Final verdict - won't be going back unless they improve the menu...

It was okay for the quality of the meat but not outstanding anymore...

Think everyone is feeling the same - it used to be packed - now it's empty and pathetic...
