They offer a wide variety of empanadas (12 options), with options suitable for vegetarians, meat lovers... The lady taking the orders won't offer you a smile though. There was also a guy from the stuff playing the guitar and singing. That was fun! The empanadas were very good, perhaps a little bit salty in my opinion. Bottom line, it's a... More

Fun environment with writings and drawings on the wall. There was a musician who played and was very good. The staff let us watch them make the empanadas in the kitchen as well. Great food! Only negative was there was no soap in the bathroom.

I speak Spanish and it was like pulling teeth with these rude women! We had our empanadas and they were good, but on the way back to hotel we found ANOTHER cash de empanadas (same company) that had an outdoor terrace which seemed way nicer.

We loved the empenadas in this lovely place. Only the service was without a smile... After talking with the staff for a few minutes we found out that they were actually really nice but...no service.with a smile!

A funkily decorated place with excellent empanadas. We had the deal with a dozen empanadas of your choice and a small pitcher of wine for 170 pesos. Enough for 2 people. The carne empanadas and the vino Blanc torrentes were a combination made in heaven. Not to be missed!

I preferred the smaller size Salta style to the bigger Buenos Aires kind. The stuffing has many varieties and moist inside. The empanadas were made to order usually the fresh vegetables. The green pepper is still green, not gray. Loved it.

Tucked away off the main plaza, stop by this graffitied restaurant for some amazing, home- and freshly-made empanadas with a cup of wine. They're about half the size of normal empanadas, but for the price order many many more! Delicious!

Well, it's hard to belive but in cafayate is hard to get good empanadas if you don't get a contact to get home made ones. The empanadas here are poor, and with some pretentious extravaganza. The place is kind of undefined in its decoration. Nevertheless, they have two branches in just three blocks. So maybe that's just me.
