Alfonsina is a typical restaurant in Cordoba. If you can't decide where to eat, you can seat there and for sure you'll have a good meal. They serve typical argentinian food (locro, humita, empanadas), but also some other dishes like pizzas, pasta, meat. Which is interesting is that you can rent a "mate" and order some homemade "merienda" with nice... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, now perhaps other menu items are good, but the pizza was possibly the worst pizza I've ever had. Honestly frozen pizza at home is better. Restaurant also seemed dirty, tables needed to be wiped down, trash on the floor. Our server left half way through and we had to flag down someone else... More

We were hungry so walked in during lunch time; we ordered a pizza for two; palmitos with anchovies. Before ordering we asked the waiter if the pizza dough was bought frozen pre-made and she said it was made in-house, then we asked if it was to thick since we like thin crust and she said it was thin; it was...

This is the most typical restaurant frequented only by locals (at least on the two weekday nights we had dinner there) that we experienced during our 4-week travel through Argentina. Although noisy, it is good fun because of the atmosphere created by the live local music, interaction with and participation of the patrons. The food is good, but not special.... More

Alfonsina is a great place to try real Argentine food. The place is very nice, not sophisticated but clean and with good decoration. The price is good and the quality too. Milanesas and Empanadas are a must. It is a good place for locals or tourists.

the place is a bit small, tables are too close to each other, so you cannot really have privacy to have any kind of conversation. the food is allright but no great

A tad bit expensive but it holds onto the Argentinean style. The service was a little slow and the place feels crowded, but it was worth it.

We enjoyed a nice lunch of empanadas and sandwiches in the center of town near the Jesuit Block. It was recommended to us by a friend who lives here and it is not touristy.

This is the only place we found one of the most delicious humitas ever. Its not your typical humita either...its a stew of corn, cheese and other delicious things!! So amazing. The atmosphere is incredible too..clearly a place locals come to socialize, catch up and drink mate! Highly recommended.

Arrived around 10 PM for some empanadas and other meals. I knew going in it seemed loud from across the street. But in we went and went to the back. All empanadas are horno (baked). No Frito. We ordered various meal items three different times and each time the length of time to table delivery was longer and longer. It... More
