The place is not a cantina anymore It has been transformed into a restaurant. It is attractive for foreigners because the walls are covered in photos from the 1900´s, the big immigrant wave.
Food is fine, the place is divided into three different rooms including a roofed patio so it is quiet and easy to have conversations. I would definitely recommend it to tourists. The price is "normal" according to the standards of San Telmo. The waiters are nice, quiet and polite. It was a friends visit but I saw couples and business people too.
