“Creative menu, flawless execution”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Our hotel assured us this was the best restaurant in Mendoza. It's not an exaggeration! The creative menu, delicious food and excellent service were every bit as good as an Alain Ducasse restaurant in Paris where we recently ate. The restaurant is small, so even a small group can raise the decibel level a lot.

“Get here if you can!!!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

What an incredible meal! Our group of 8 all participated in the tasting menu with multiple, mind-blowing courses from appetizers to dessert! How do they make all of that happen in such a small venue? Hands-on owners in the front and back of the house and long-tenured staff make sure everything is perfect! Terrific wine list too!

“Magnificant Food and Lovely Evening”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

What a treasure tucked in a low key spot in Lujan de Cuyo/wine country. As New Yorkers, we are happy when traveling to get good food and embrace the local cuisine. But we were blown away that we were dining on taste sensations that were novel, innovative, delicious and world class. This place in Manhattan would be booked solid! Further, the owner was incredibly nice and super focused on making the meal a total experience.

“Don't miss this”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Wonderful menu, food and staff. We had the tasting menu - all of the courses were amazing, the food very well prepared and beautifully presented. The decor of the restaurant is minimalist and somehow goes perfectly with food and atmosphere, probably because it doesn't compete with the presentation. It's a hidden gem that I wouldn't miss. Brindallas was tied for our first place ranking for all of the restaurants we ate at during almost 3 weeks in Argentina.

“Tops in Mendoza”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

This restaurant is worth searching out. We have eaten at some pretty amazing places, and this surprising little place ranks among the top. The owners apparently closed up shop for 3 years and traveled through Europe and Japan before returning to open this restaurant, and their cuisine shows off some of the skills they must have learned. We had the tasting menu with a fantastic bottle of Malbec recommended by the owner. The dishes were all extremely tasty and very well presented. The owner came to explain every single course, and it was clear that this production was a passion for her. Service was impeccable, and the price more than reasonable. For me this ranks among some Michelin star awarded restaurants that I have been to. Definitely the best meal we had on this trip!
