Really surprised me to see its #20 in town. The food is ok, nothing special, by the way it was the worst tortilla I've ever had. The staff was not nice at all, barely looked into our faces, just throwing things on the table. Never going back there.

This restaurant has amazing empanadas of both chicken and oxtail but I love the steak. It slices like butter and the meat melts in your mouth. An explosion of flavours that definitely makes this restaurant a favourite to revisit over and over again. Ten points and highly recommend.

Get. The. EMPANADAS. They are fantastic. The salad options were limited the night I went with my husband. I was a little disappointed with their selection, but the main course (in our case sirloin steaks) were well prepared, and served quickly. The service was okay, courteous without being too clingy. My husband and I decided to try it even though... More

Very slow service. We both ordered steak meals which was very salty and very disappointing , Never again!

I had previously found this place in April and was delighted as I love Argentinian food. I sat inside and enjoyed the ambience, food and good service. For this reason I took my husband back for a birthday celebration in October. What's happened??? We sat outside as it was beautiful warm evening. However, we waited a while for a waiter... More

15 min after being shown to seat waiter then told us we had to leave as someone else had reserved it. No wait and have a drink on us or any alternative offered. Just you must leave.

I love Empanadas, but wow, these were great. We ordered the different types for a shared starter, and they were massive and tasted lovely. Then I had a steak with potatoes, which was equally great. Would go back here again, without having to think about it!

Great little Argentinian restaurant with a wonderful atmosphere, friendly staff and good food. We started by sharing the various Empanadillas which were out of this world and we struggled to choose a favourite. The main courses were all huge and very tasty, char grilled meats served with potatoes and very fresh tasting salad. Us girls tried to save room for... More

This restaurant was recommended to us, and it wasn't disappointing - at least, the food wasn't. We shared a rabbo de torro empanadas, which was one of the best things we ate during our month in Spain. In fact, I have searched for more and can't find any. I urge you to try this - take some home too! We... More

After and early morning flight from Edinburgh and a lengthy drive from Madrid, we were stotting about the streets of Córdoba in a bit of a dwam looking for somewhere to eat. We eventually ended up outside 'La Tranquera' and decided that the need for food exceeded the need to be certain about the restaurant. The acceptance of 'bounded rationality'... More
