The food here is so so good no matter what you order, I went there 3 times during my trip! I found the staff to be very kind and helpful even when there was communication issues with languages. I love the atmosphere of the place as well as the decoration. A visit to Alfonsina while you are in Cordoba is... More

Slow service: Took 45' from the moment I arrived until the pizza arrived. The pizza was served warm, not hot. The waiter did not came back to my table again (not even to give me the bill). So, I had to take my pizza to the front bar to get it warmed up. Then back to pick it up. And... More

I was there during the nacional celebration of "25 de Mayo". The place was packed but it was completely worthy. There was also a local singer playing Argentinian folklore songs. I asked for the typical Argentinian plates served in the place: Locro and Humita. The verdict: EXCELLENT!!

We looked for this place for more than an hour after some local tour guide recommended it to us, but after finally finding it, we can't suggest you go eat there. The wait was very long, the food did not taste good & the service was below average. The ladies bathroom was dirty & it stunk. There was no soap.... More

Want to experience local and cultural hangout? Best merienda (Yerba mate and pan caseros) for your afternoon tea. Best entertainment w/ live music at night on weekends. Empanadas (criollos) are amazing. Excellent argentine service. Follow on FB to get musician schedules. Martin Oliva, Bon Voyage, & La Caracteristica Orquestra, to name a few.

This was a delightful find. The restaurant is packed full of locals (always a good sign!) and had an excellent menu full of wine and food. There were a number of comida typical (local food) options, from which my husband had the goat stew (which was great) and I had a milanesa. The empanadas are also delicious (have two or... More

The food was very good, interesting choice of empanadas, and if you like traditional dishes this is the place to go. The service is very good as well as atmosphere. Totally recommendable!

It has a rustic atmosphere, it is nice, but you have a lot of restaurants with that kind of atmosphere. If you are not from Argentina, you would like to go there and try some tipical meals of the...

I've been to this place over 20 times. It is not amazing, but they consistently have good empanadas, salads, milanesas etc. Service varies quite a bit, but most times is good The ambience is great, it is rustic style, but without being over the top (less of the touristic feeling). Also you can find different options (mate, etc) that you... More

We looked for a place to drink a glas of wine and stumpeled on to Alfonsina. The place has a cool vibe to it, funky art and very friendly staff. We ordered some nice homemade empanadas, especially the chicken is recommendable. The wine was one of the few blends you'll find from Argentina, great taste but a bit to warm... More
