“Nice to have something different than Tex Mex”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is a nice change of pace from typical SA food. Empanadas and fish tacos were the stars of the menu empanada crust is flaky and perfect...almost like a pie crust. Fish tacos were fresh with a nice creamy sauce. Sat out back on a nice spring day. Very pleasant service. Would return for sure.

“Great Empanadas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I ate lunch here today. I would have to go to Costa Rico to find a better empanada than the one I got here. This is not a fancy eatery, but the food is. very good. Service is good and prices are reasonable.

“A refreshing menu of latin american favorites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I was happily surprised to see the new menu (I had not been in this restaurant for close to 4 years). Their new combo selections make it easy (and affordable) to try a few of their popular items (empanadas, quesadillas and/or tacos). The fish taco was excellent as were the empanadas. The ceviche was not stellar, but then again, who needs ceviche when you have empanadas! Beyond the food, the staff was very attentive and polite.

“Really good food and a really friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We had dinner here on a Friday night during a recent trip to SA. There's a large patio area, but the band playing didin't appeal to us and it was quite chilly. So, we requested an inside table. Apparently a large group was just leaving and they were able to seat us and others waiting pretty promptly once they left. They also offered us a beverage while waited.

Dinner was really delicious and the service was great. Not only was our server prompt and friendly, but management also came by the table to make sure everything was okay as well. Another group was sitting near us and had brought in a cake evidently to celebrate something. They even offered us some of their cake, which I thought was nice. They also had someone playing the keyboard inside, which was mildly entertaining.

We will definitely visit again if in the area.

“Family Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Although the service was a little slow, there is outdoor seating with a large screen TV and a play area for the kids. Food is excellent and inexpensive.
