From the street,this place looks cute. Service was slow, as it seems it is in the city. There was a good selection of empanadas. The salads were less desirable however. Crowded tables,not a lot of room to move. It was okay, but not memorable.

Wow, what a place. Walked along way to get here. Our guide book highly recommended it. Hearty thick strews in big clay bowls. We has the beef/bean/corn and empanadas to start. Busy place, lots of staff. Food well priced!

I recently returned to Buenos Aires after 7 years, and my girlfriend wanted to take me to a bunch of good places. Cumaná was one of them. Cumaná is located on a busy street near the city center, and like many restaurants located in this area, it tends to get full. However, unlike the other restaurants in the area, there... More

Pretty good prices and a high movement environment. Very decent food for the price. Would go again on a hungry afternoon. Good bars and other hangouts in the area for an after dinner drink.

This place I had my best Locro, a meat stew with lentils and beans, best ever, the empanadas try the lomo picante, been around 4 to 5 restos in argentina but I find their empanadas are the best. Make sure you don't order too much as serving size for this resto is big. With reasonable prices and very comfy place,... More

The food was glorious and exceptionally reasonably priced. Getting service however involved several attempts at waving down servers and in the end any server to get a menu, order and to get a bill. This place appears to be a favourite for you g locals likely due to the really cheap but delicious food. Do not go here if you... More

For a hearty lunchtime snack, I heartily recommend a delicious (and quite absurdly cheap, and therefore popular with the student crowd) place serving traditional Argentine food: Cumana, on Rodriguez Peña 1149. We had empanadas each and two traditional dishes, the locro and the carbonada – all of which I again recommend without hesitation.

This restaurant seems to be popular with the locals, as well. We ordered a few empanadas to begin with, and at least the one with meat was very good. I had locro for my main course which was good, but not as good as the homemade variety that I had the pleasure of enjoying a few days later. A ***... More

The ideal place to enjoy traditional Argentine food with small children. Paper table cloths and crayons on every table allowed us to enjoy, not just wolf down, wonderful stew.

We had a late lunch around 3pm. There was not a wait at that time. The empanadas were delicious. We also had the appetizer for 2 and this was plants of food. The house red is good and inexpensive. Our meal was about 25 usd including tip so the place is very affordable. The service was great, an although we... More
