Staff was corteous and gave us time to fully decide on our choices for meal. Steaks were seasoned perfectly but, slightly over-cooked, we ordered rare, got "medium rare"; my wife ordered a salad and she stated it was very good.

We tried three diferent meat dishes in this noisy small restaurant and the entraña was by far the best. Very good prices and the small portions are just enough for 1 person.

Empanadas are great. Dont leave without having the carne molina con aceituna y uevos. Those are great. The service has to be improved as they take forever, but it is a no miss place given the great empanadas.

Just trust me on this one and go for the empanadas. They are all great. The steak options are a good choice for a business lunch or a quick dinner.

Great options in meat with excellent quality and fine attention to the cooking of the beef. Excellent argentinian empanadas. Reasonably priced. Environment is cozy and un pretentious

Good meat and good value for money place in Costa del Este. No fuss about the place but really good BBQ cooking and prime meat. The restaurant has evolved over the years from a simple bakery so the set up is not the best - out table was next to the kitchen and with a lot of foot traffic -... More

I had a couple of quick lunch and I always take away some empanadas- they are so good - like in Peru If you ever wonder why people live empanadas, try those and you will get it for sure.

Visited mostly by locals this is one of the Costa del Este best kept secret. Located in a very small Plaza, Caminito's offer a very good Argentinian food comparable only to a bigger and more expensive restaurants. The Empanadas are very authentic and the meats are really good. A great option, very recommendable in Costa del Este.

Not only the empanadas, also the steak is pretty delicious. Service is excellent. They have made an upgrade to the restaurant and it also looks good. You can make takeaways. Perfect for breakfast. This restaurant will make money for a long time and they deserve it.

I use Caminito's when I want to grab a tasty and easy meal on the way home. The empanadas are absolutely delicious and they have a wide variety of fillings. Definitely a better option than pizza or a hamburger as fast food!
