Casual lunch in center

We enjoyed a nice lunch of empanadas and sandwiches in the center of town near the Jesuit Block. It was recommended to us by a friend who lives here and it is not touristy.

This is the only place we found one of the most delicious humitas ever. Its not your typical humita either...its a stew of corn, cheese and other delicious things!! So amazing. The atmosphere is incredible too..clearly a place locals come to socialize, catch up and drink mate! Highly recommended.

Arrived around 10 PM for some empanadas and other meals. I knew going in it seemed loud from across the street. But in we went and went to the back. All empanadas are horno (baked). No Frito. We ordered various meal items three different times and each time the length of time to table delivery was longer and longer. It... More

The food here is so so good no matter what you order, I went there 3 times during my trip! I found the staff to be very kind and helpful even when there was communication issues with languages. I love the atmosphere of the place as well as the decoration. A visit to Alfonsina while you are in Cordoba is... More

Slow service: Took 45' from the moment I arrived until the pizza arrived. The pizza was served warm, not hot. The waiter did not came back to my table again (not even to give me the bill). So, I had to take my pizza to the front bar to get it warmed up. Then back to pick it up. And... More

I was there during the nacional celebration of "25 de Mayo". The place was packed but it was completely worthy. There was also a local singer playing Argentinian folklore songs. I asked for the typical Argentinian plates served in the place: Locro and Humita. The verdict: EXCELLENT!!

We looked for this place for more than an hour after some local tour guide recommended it to us, but after finally finding it, we can't suggest you go eat there. The wait was very long, the food did not taste good & the service was below average. The ladies bathroom was dirty & it stunk. There was no soap.... More

Want to experience local and cultural hangout? Best merienda (Yerba mate and pan caseros) for your afternoon tea. Best entertainment w/ live music at night on weekends. Empanadas (criollos) are amazing. Excellent argentine service. Follow on FB to get musician schedules. Martin Oliva, Bon Voyage, & La Caracteristica Orquestra, to name a few.

This was a delightful find. The restaurant is packed full of locals (always a good sign!) and had an excellent menu full of wine and food. There were a number of comida typical (local food) options, from which my husband had the goat stew (which was great) and I had a milanesa. The empanadas are also delicious (have two or... More

The food was very good, interesting choice of empanadas, and if you like traditional dishes this is the place to go. The service is very good as well as atmosphere. Totally recommendable!
