“Fantastic Empanadas!”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Some friends and I swung by Panas last night after a charity bartending session, and what a find! The selection of empanadas was fantastic and each were delicious, as was the sangria. The staff was also incredibly friendly...an unfortunate rarity in DC restaurants, particularly in the Dupont area. Overall, if you find yourself in the area, it's worth your time to swing by.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

We ordered one of each flavor and devoured between 4 of us. I loved the one with the brie. Very close to metro station in dupont circle. The staff is super nice....must try at least once if you're in town.

“Riquisimas Empanadas!”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

As a fellow Argentine- finding this cute little restaurant was a great treat! The empanadas were very good and we enjoyed them for a late lunch. While we didn't try all the varieties- we did have the carne and ham and cheese ones- the service was pleasant and attentive-great job to the owner!

“Very friendly”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

THe staff was very helpful and friendly; a lot of choice in fillings and they were piping hot. However, not enough filling and too heavy on the onions - so you don't get much meat filling.
