Very friendly waitress who speaks good English. We followed here recommendations and she didn't let us down! Tried 4 different empanadas, all delicious, and so was the bife a la crialla (potatoes, onions, peppers). Nice interior.

A lovely local and homely restaurant with ‘comfort’ food, Argentinian wine and friendly service in an unpretentious space. We found this place on our first night in BA and would definitely come back again.

Went for lunch mid week. Had empanadas as a starter, then a lentils dish and a tamal for mains. All were good. Waitress was helpful. We also took home some more empanadas for the next day.

Really cool place with delicious empanadas and very friendly (and English-speaking) staff! Well situated, too -- near Recoleta and Palermo -- so a perfect pit stop if you've been walking all day.

Characterised by the French-style mansions which are
the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the
true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this
neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos
Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment
buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions
turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll
