We stumbled upon this place by chance and went to try their empanadas. They were great! We went back 3 times just for empanadas. The pollo and caprese were our favorites. The Palace had some decent deals on empanadas + drinks aswell.

We were in San Telmo for the Sunday Feria and found the place, the pizza and the beer all to our liking. Not expensive, busy but good service and funky atmosphere. Not your classic pizza but very good.

If you are looking for a crispy and delicious pizza this is not the place. Is cheap, service is average and cleanliness is poor. I had to wait 5 mins for a waiter because for this place customer service is not a priority.

The best empanadas in Buenos Aires (or at least a great contender). Try verduras vegetable) -- 2 of these will fill you up for less than $4 US. Salads good too. It is my go to place when wanting something cheap and cheerful.

Not too expensive , with a good pizza, tartas and splendid empanadas! They accept credit cards. Atmosphere is very nice.

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique
