“Good Empanadas”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

If you're just looking for a traditional Argentinian Empanada (Filled Corn Pattie) this is a good place. Ok price. It's been along for years. The place is not nice, so order to go and picnic at La Sabana Park across the street.

“The empanadas were good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Being that we were born in Argentina but leave abroad, we decided to try this Argentinean restaurant while visiting San Jose. The place is nothing special at all. Looks like a neighborhood small restaurant. The empanadas are very good. The steak was OK. The best part is that they sell Argentinean alfajores Balcarce. If you are an expat that misses alfajores, you can stop by and get some.
