Fodor's Review

Daniel Ancina, his wife Graciela, and a team of cooks will greet you at this typical ranch house, about 20 minutes from town; then they'll fill your wineglass, introduce you to the other guests, and seat you family-style at a long table. Little pots of spreads and sauces for dipping or spreading on pan casero (homemade bread) line the center of the table. Out of the mud-brick oven comes a platter of crisp baked empanadas followed by some type of meat—goat, lamb, beef, chicken, or chorizo. Everything is cooked on the spot, and there couldn't be a better (or warmer) introduction to the region's traditional cuisine. Don't even try to find this place on your own: call to be picked up or inquire at the tourist office for directions and reservations.
