The bar is a great option for dinning or just for appetizers. They serve Patagonia beer, the best in Argentina, and their empanadas are awesome!

Sat outside and ordered a liter of Quilmes and two Carne Empanadas. I'd say best Empanadas in Mendoza!

The meat was like rubber and certainly "fresh" from the microwave. Just simply terrible from the sit-down to the bill.

Our tour guide recommended we tried the empanadas on this place, and they didn't disappoint. Located in a very nigh life area, perfect place to eat and then hop on to other bars up and down the street.

I was here just for drinks. They have Patagonia beer on tap. This was actually pretty good. I went during happy hour so 2 beers cost me 100 pesos. The food was also reasonably priced.

Dessert, I highly recommend you try... More

People waving at the waiter. Frantically trying to get his attention. He's been a bit distracted all night. Aside from service, people want to take away their leftovers. We had a whole dish that was left over, but we didn't want to take it away. The locals only order the small dishes / sandwiches. This is a sandwich place that... More

Had a lovely lunch here. Great empanadas for 18-20 each, really tasty fillings. Steak sandwich is huge with big pieces of steak! Calamari are lovely with crispy covering. The place has a feel of a comfortable pub that sells food. Nice for a casual lunch.
