Go for the Casseroles

We went here based on the reviews, and because it was close to our hotel (Design Suites), we heard the Empanadas are great (true), and the pizza (not so true), definitely don't go for the pizza - it was average at best! (Try El Cuartito nearby), however the Casserole dishes were divine!! It was... read more

We ordered pizza! Very different from the USA since they used sliced tomatoes on top instead of the tomato sauce we are use to. A nice and different experience while travelling. We really liked the ambiance of this restaurant.

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
