This restaurant is really regional and quaint. The empanadas are really good and the regional dishes excellent as well. Also, it is cheap compare to others restaurants downtown. The menu is varied and they offer all the salta gastronomic options. The only thing is they are a bit slow with the meat dishes like steaks or milanesas. The service is ok. But I highly recommend it.

We went because it was highly recommended by everybody we asked. The empanadas and the tamales are the best. We tried locro as well and it was fantastic. The place is modest, but friendly.

The empanadas are the best we've had in Argentina (that includes BA and Mendoza), but its tamales are also excellent. Service is casual but attentive, the wine list is OK, the menus feel like they're falling apart, and the caricatures of local celebrities on the walls do amuse. Dinner with a bottle of wine came to $450 (about US$25).

Simple. Affordable. Friendly. Locals and tourists. Great food. Great wine. We were there on Thanksgiving day and did not miss our Turkey and trimmings.

We have eaten a lot of empanadas in Argentina, but these must be the best empanadas that we had in the entire country. Tamales are really good too.
