“AMAZING EMPANADAS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

I lived in Argentina for a year, and nothing has come close to the empanadas I had there until i found this little gem in PV. All of the empanadas I tried were amazingggggggg. It was so cheap too! 6 for 15 US dollars. We tried to go back a few times, but it was closed. Really really recommend!!! Don't forget to get the chimichurri with it (the best I've ever had!).

“Best Empanadas I have ever had!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I was hesitant of visiting this place since it did not look like much from the outside, but two close friends reccomended it. When i pulled up the house was full with a large family but immediately the lady behind the counter said to pull up a seat at the only small table available. The service was amazing, everything had a personal touch and when i inquired about the different items on the menu they gave us a great explanation but made it even harder to decide what to pick since everything looked amazing... We had a number of different empanadas and at the end of the meal tried to decide which ones we like best but couldn't because they were all amazing... the authentic, mexicana, costenita and more !!! Everything about this restaurant was awesome!! this is a must try and must go too for your next stay here in PVR... I live here and the restaurants available are many but this place i will definitely be back to and recommend to many family and friends!!!!!!

“Delicious Empanadas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Located in Old Town...you could almost walk past this small restaurant and not see it. It's small but oh is the food delicious! Prices are reasonable and the empanadas would cost many times more if a fancy touristy place you would find in guidebooks. We ordered 3 empanadas per person the last time we visited and could easily have done only 2 per person they were that filling. On our first visit we selected several different empanaas and cut the in half so we could try more flavors. I especially like the one that is stuffed with mushrooms--I've tried several and they are all yummy. Service is a little slow and the place is small with only a few tables--otherwise I would have given this one 5 stars. You will be give a selection of sauces to try with your empanadas...some are very hot, others not so taste first.
