Reservations not required but highly recommended. We didn’t have reservations, and were encouraged to wait next door in a cute cafe (sister to the restaurant) and had appetizers. Variety of dinners, multi course and price fix, offered. This is the type of restaurant in which you are encouraged to linger over your meal.

Beef tenderloin wrapped in dough, spinach, blue cheese, carrots and ginger purée. Santa Paula’s sprinkling Sauvignon Blanc. Creme brulee with dulce de leche ice cream. Indoor resembling a grocery store with a great cellar place where to choose and taste great Argentinian red wines. A must visiting Mendoza.

I would highly recommend this restaurant for couples or small groups looking for an intimate place for a delicious meal. We did the tasting menu with wine pairings for two and were highly satisfied with both the plates and the pairings. This is a very good restaurant with diligent service and a comfortable intimate atmosphere.

What a quaint little place near the Park Hyatt in Mendoza. The decor is somewhat eclectic and the music ranges from standards to jazz to great 70’s hits. The menu has a lunch tasting menu with three options each for the appetizer choice and the entree, and two choices for dessert. This and a glass of wine for around US$22. Great deal for very good food. They also have a six course tasting menu if you prefer. To top it off, no one list. They have a wine room that you can visit and choose a bottle of wine if you prefer. The wine they serve with the prefix is very good. Members of my group enjoyed the smoked salmon appetizer, the langostino cream soup, and the lentils appetizer with a soft pouches egg and prosciutto - amazing! The grilled salmon and the steak were also great. Now, the desert. Get the crème brûlée. It comes with dulce-de-leche (caramel) ice cream that is simply incredible. Great food at a decent price. Don’t miss it.

The food and service were excellent. The empanadas are a must. One of the best I've had. The ojo de bife for 2 was good but not enough. I would in the future just buy 2 ojo de bifes instead. We shared a panqueque de dulce de leche. It was fabulous. Don't skip the dessert. Reservation is needed and staff speak English and Portuguese. This place gets very busy and are unlikely to get a table as a walk-in, we got lucky someone cancelled theirs as we waited. The Wine room was very cool. You get to pick your bottle from an extensive collection
