This is a decent enough venue (simple but stylish) in the Bottleworks. A decent plate of food (Lomo con Papas Fritas - going 'Viva style' was a good call) for a decent price. The service was definitely decent. The one thing that isn't decent here is the cupcakes. The cupcakes are unbelievably brilliant!

This is located in the Bottleworks on Prince Ave so it's very trendy and stylish, casual. You can sit inside or outside on the porch. Inside is decorated with original art. There were five of us for lunch at about 2 on Sunday, with no wait. We had spinach and mushroom empanadas, squash bisque, Argentine sausage sandwich, pastel de papa (shepherd pie), and limo con papa fritas, viva style, then an assortment of mini cupcakes for dessert. First Argentine for any of us so I can't speak to authenticity, but I can say that everyone was delighted with their meal, and the service was excellent and very friendly.

Excellent little restaurant tucked away in the Bottleworks complex on Prince Avenue. Bottleworks is under new ownership and is the center for a growing niche of good local restaurants. The chef lived many years in Argentina and brings her love for that cuisine to Athens which much acclaim.

I ate at the east side location a couple of times and liked it, but they have really stepped it up for the new location in Bottleworks! I like the food better and better every time! The lunch "pick 2" for about $6.50 and "pick 3" for about $9 with a drink are a bargain - but its hard to pick just 2 or 3 things. The butternut squash bisque is a must - I even order it when its hot out! Salads are delish - made with spring greens, no iceberg here! ALL the empanadas are amazing, its hard to pick which one to get, and they all come with home made dippin sauce. Don't leave here without trying a homemade cupcake - they are tiny and perfect and sooo delicious!
