“great regional food, nice dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

Looks a bit like a tourist trap especially because of the uniforms of the waiters.
But the food was excellent, the empanadas very delicious and the bife de chorizo was to die for.
No credit cards accepted but at least they tell you right away.

“Miserable servers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Food was ok, but the servers are miserable wearing the incredibly cheesy uniforms! They also had a machine for calling service or the bill; very weird.

Meat empanada was good, corn soup was good. We're going to try and replicate the recipe at home.

“Good atmosphere, delicious empanadas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

I loved the empanadas! Really tasty, try the "empanada de charque", with dry meat filling.
Charming bar and restaurant.

“Very good restaurant for regional food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Located near the Plaza 9 de Julio in the historic part of the city. Very good empanadas and regional food. You can also taste the "matambrito" and the "queso de cabra con miel de caña" a regional dessert. Good meal. Good price. No credit cards. Only cash. No music.

“Good, but not as good as I expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

The decor is beautiful here and the service was good. The food was decent, but I expected it to be a little better, just based on how the place looked like. Clean bathrooms, wide selection on the menu, and I would try it again. I ordered gnocchi and they were tasty, but didn't seem freshly made. The sauce tasted watery and from a bag.
