We stopped her for lunch as part of our wine & bike tour through Mr. Hugo. It was wonderful! Lunch was a 3 course, very reasonably priced feast where you were able to choose your entree and dessert. Everyone in our party of 5 was very pleased with their food. Portions were large, food was flavorful and the restaurant itself was very charming. Absolutely loved this place. Service was good, our 4 year old doesn't eat much and was not very hungry, so they allowed her to share off of our plates at no extra charge. Very random note- the bathrooms are absolutely freezing cold (colder than it was outside). So if you need to use the facilities, grab your coat first!

My husband and I shared a wonderful meal here, and of course some amazing wine too. Steaks cooked to perfection, this meal was both delicious and well-priced. Our host Hans from Posada Cavieres Wine Farm suggested this little family run restaurant to us, and what a great find it was. We opted to sit outdoors, which was so pretty. The staff were so friendly, and considering we don't speak much Spanish at all, did their best to convey to us what was available on the menu. The environment is calm, clean and professional. Definitely worth a visit. Not your run of the mill place. Something special here… Garth & Kim - South Africa

maipu is the lesser known part of mendoza argentine wine country. many wineries, too many for one visit. our B&B host at posada caviares wine farm suggested la melesca for a local meal..
we had biked past the front but had not noticed earlier. arriving at 2030h opening, well surprised.
fine ambience and decor, calm, only husband and wife staff.
fresh garden salads, two huge lomo steaks, perfectly grilled, a grilled vegetable selection, a fine intense malbec, high calorie desert. perfect for under US$ 25.
the chef even drove us back to our B&B in a vineyard ten minutes away.

We had the cheese a plate and pasta with pesto. Both were homemade and delicious with generous portions. The staff were a little abrupt and we're going to charge me to fill my water bottle, which I found very rude.

Nice Restaurant, good food, excellent service.
What a nice place, with good food and excellent service, people are really friendly here and make you feel welcome.
After visiting several bodegas where we sometimes got the impression that they are on "auto pilot", this place is a relief.
Open from 10 to 18, with reservaton also during the evening.
