We loved this restaurant! It's true that it's hard to find the types of empanadas (as in varieties) served here anywhere else in Argentina, but that is the attraction. Don't think it is just a touristy spot. It is a special, delicious experience and truly run by all Argentinians. It's so much fun to order a variety of the different... More

We paid 68 pesos for a dozen and had 12 different types to choose from of which 6 were vegetarian. The Empanadas are made fresh to order. I found the blue cheese ones too strong but the others were delicious. Service was good too we only had to wait about 15 minutes. Would recommend a visit!

The service was absolutely excellent here (my best experience in Argentina). That evening Lucas Yanez (one man show: guitar & singing) provided the entertainment and he was awesome!!! A really young and talented musician! I would definitely recommend this restaurant & if you're lucky, you'll get to see Lucas perform too.

What a super restaurant, tucked away off the main drag. We popped in for lunch and ended up having dinner there as well. The empanadas are so tasty, freshly cooked and there are lots of different flavours to try, including a good number of vegetarian options. Service was great, staff very friendly and we also had the pleasure of listening... More

We ate here twice in the four days that we spent in Cafayate. Delicious empanadas, very friendly owner/staff, good prices, and easy to find. Loved the inner courtyard, mural paintings, and pottery wine pitchers.

I'm a bit skeptical when they say, "the best empanadas" in ground zero of empanada heaven, Salta, but they really are the best :)

This restaurant serves an excellent and delicious selection of empanandas. My wife and I shared a mixed dozen chosen from the many varieties on the menu. Combine it with a salad (which is safe to eat throughout the region) and a local wine for a wonderful and inexpensive lunch or dinner.

This is a somewhat unfair review since I was not able to taste the food but I am writing it out of frustration. We went there 3 times trying to eat but it was closed despite the schedule posted on the door. When we finally made it when it had decided to open, they said it would take an hour... More

The empanadas were very good, but it took over an hour to get them (between the order and the food), with only two tables occupied, very strange. My review would have been much better for the food, but it combines the food and the service. We are usually not bothered about waiting but it is surreal to wait more than... More
