“Great Food, Friendly Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We stumbled upon Carita Morena wandering between our hotel in the Palermo Hollywood district and the Palermo SOHO district of Buenos Aires, and what a great find. With the help of my limited Spanish and the very friendly waiter, I was able to get across that we just wanted a light meal, but we ended up enjoying an awesome variety of empanadas (the ham & cheese - or jamon y queso - was definitely my favorite) - and some wonderful Argentine Malbec, all at a very reasonable price.

The place was on a busy corner that really takes on a whole new light at night. The crowd was loud and fun, and just as we found all over Buenos Aires, genuinely welcoming and friendly. I highly recommend seeking out this place for a great meal (or two) and a good time!
