I don't really have much words to say... This was just the worst service ever. He trow drinks and food at the table near us... So what, I don't get it. He forgot wine glases. When we asked for it, no smile, nothing, no apology....
The food, very basic. Menu hard to understand. House wine was not good.
Relly don't get, why so much good notes.
Sorry, but if you work with people, you should at least smile.

Late night dinner after quick shower after long long flights and the place was paced with locals, noisy but lively and fun. Simple local fare but quality. Had some delicious empanadas, the obligatory provoletta and a mouth watering steak to share with a nice Malbec. Hit the spot and really cheap for the price... I want to move to Buenos Aires and go there....

Seriously THE BEST empanadas in town! Locals hang here too, mixed with out of towners like us. Must go!

Terrific, if you have time for a stop, make sure you visit El Sanjuanino, order the (what else?) empanadas. We got an assortment and some sangria and soft drinks. Everything was great, the pollo and carne both. Would recommend this for sure. Prices were very reasonable as well. Happy all around.

Great service and tasty food. They take reservations so be sure to call ahead to book, as the line was very long. Very friendly servers and the price very affordable. Nice casual spot for lunch. When we came, the tour groups were about to leave. I thought it may be a touristy place, but the feel and taste was very authentic.
