I am South America and was looking forward to visit this place. I ordered a simple beef empanada. Please be aware: The empanadas are frozen : ( they warm them up for you. I had one bite and the taste was terrible.

We went to try the restaurant for the first time. Make sure you call before you go because they don't have some items from their menu, like the BEEF empanada!! It's very tasty but the dough is a little thick. With $25 two can eat.

OMG - the avocado fries are amazing - tastes like deep fried little morsels of soft butter, except it's avocado which is a good fat. Crispy, lightly battered, hot - delish! got the beef, chicken and seafood empanadas - all traditional - all good, better...More

Empanadas are cook to the order, than you wait for 7 minutes. There is a selection of mini empanadas by dozens. I recommend the beef empanadas.

Just tried to order 36 dozen mini empanadas and they don't offer large tubs of sauce . It was going to be over 200 dollars for enough sauce for almost 400 empanadas. It is unfortunate that they were not willing or able to help out....More

It's really below average, but not poor. I've tried better empanadas and churros for 1/4 of their price. I found their empanadas are too expensive for its size. Dough was so-so...found it kind of thick. Filling is average. Their churros are average. It wasn't spectacular....More

Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.
