This isn't a fancy high priced restaurant, but a casual sit down café that you can come to and enjoy a good food. If you are looking to venture out from your usual dining routine, give this place a try.

This is one of those places that I feel bad giving it anything less than 5s. But, I have to go on my total experience even if it is kind of limited. I had a pastry and coffee on my visit. The best I can say is that it was 'just okay'. In fact, once the pastry was heated it... More

We did dinner take-out and got four meals and two desserts for 3 people to eat at home, planning on leftovers and we got that. The cachapa (sweet corn turnover) with chicken was really tasty (on the greasy side but really good). The chicken arepa (savory corn turnover) was only average because it was a little bland. There was plenty... More

Gluten Free! That's a biggie for the wife, so I figured I'd get that out of the way. They have everything clearly listed on their menu with a GF by it for easy access. The food is very tasty! It's different than anything I've ever tasted, and I like eating here. I've been to Zaguan a few times with the... More

I had visited Buenos Aires a few month's before...not that I was expecting to feel like I had been swept away to that wonderful city, but I still left feeling slightly disappointed in my experience. The food was very greasy. Neither of us could finish it. Both of our orders got mixed up. To their credit, the waiter offered to... More

I started going to this restaurant 10 years ago, just when they open. It is small, charming café, but the dishes are great. The best is Cachapa with pulled beef and cheese. It is always delicious and satisfying. If you want something unique, off the bitten path, this is the place. Not expensive and very tasty.

The place has mediocre food, terrible atmosphere, limited bar, poor service and high prices. The menu and pricing is misleading. The place is a dive but not priced like one.

Good place to go if you are adventurous and tired of Tex-Mex. This food is from south of Mexico, so don't expect the ordinary. My whole family loved it. Even better, it won't cost you like a higher end place. We will definitely go back when we are in town.
