It is closed and I am very sad i didn't get to try it! After moving to PV in the summer I kept waiting to see if they would open for high season but they never did.

These are the best empanadas north of Argentina. Big selection, served with four sauces. Prices are excellent. Their house salad is a meal, but you HAVE to have at least one empanada. They have a steak special that is tasty and a good value. I...More
