“Great Empanadas!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

Little hole in the wall with great empanadas. You can even see into the kitchen from the dining area. Delicious tamales and humitas too - and very affordable. (It definitely has the feel of someplace that has been discovered by the guide books though.)

“Great food and cheap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

This place serves really good empanadas, which is the only reason to go there (don't believe the Lonely Planet, other types of food are extremely limited here). There are about 12 different types of empanadas, all of them delicious. Try the vegetarian one with Torrontes wine, it's really nice! The staff might not be the friendliest in Argentina, but the food makes up for it. And we ended up paying about 9 euro for empanadas for 2 persons and 2 drinks. Crazy!

“Empanada Heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

You are in for a good time and good meal if you frequent La Casa de las Empanadas one block from the main square in Cafayate. It isn't much to look at, but the food is really very tasty and reasonably priced. There are about 10 varieties of empanada to choose along with drinks. You can even ask for a salad that isn't on the menu! Go for it, it is so fun

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2011

What a fabulous experience! A menu of 12 empanadas, so we ordered one of each, each one better than the last. A fabulous rustic lunch.

“If you're a fan of goat cheese that is a great place!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2011

I tried to order something off the card, but it was not possible. So I assume the empanadas are pre-made. I don't like goat cheese so much, so I could not really find anything I liked, but my bf was amazed.
