we have visited the sunny terrace with friends and ordered a couple of dozends of Empanadas. They are all delicious, the normal carne and ham and cheese seemed a little dull compared to the 10 other tastes. All out of the oven, not fried of course. The service was friendly and flexible.

Fantastic empanadas but even better tamales! The service was also great! Super friendly waiters who took the time to tell me about all the empanadas. Definitely worth the visit!

Worth a visit, nice little place - simple menu but interesting options. 89 pesos 12 empanadas and a 1/2 litre carafe of Torrentes. We also had the lokra, yum! Empanadas were out quick despite being busy. They were a little salty we thought, the only downside

This restaurant had a great playground for young kids to climb and play that came in handy as we waited a long, long time for our empanada order, which then arrived incomplete and incorrect. Maybe we just had a flaky waitress, but none of the other wait staff seemed to want to make things better, either. However the empanadas are... More

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.
