Average Food, Horrific Service

The food was bland to the core! The atmosphere was bohemian. The service was just awful. Our server was uncaring...we had constantly wave him over to get something. The experience was totally blah!

Cumana is deceiving - looks small from the street, but is very large. Even when it's packed, which is usually the case, it never feels crowded or cramped. The service is excellent especially when the staff has to serve many people simultaneously - despite the crowds and at times, waiting for a table, there wasn't a moment when we felt... More

Comfortable and relaxed, this place offers informal food at great prices. The empanadas were absolutely first rate. Our family of five visited in the middle of high season in Buenos Aires (Christmas/New Years) and while the restaurant was full, we were seated quickly. The service was good -- no problems ordering, getting food, refills etc.

Located just off Santa Fe, this place is a great alternative if you want some South American food but need a break from steak!! It's open fronted and a bit warm in there, which seemed perfect for a cold crisp litre of beer rather than wine. The service was ok and the food was pleasant. It all was exactly what... More

Great empanada and argentinian cuisine that isn't a bife de chorizo or deep dish pizza. Wonderful variety of empanadas to chose from. Not too expensive either. Super spot

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
