“Great dinner, excellent service”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

After a long day skiing with my friends we decided to have a nice dinner in a nice restaurant. We asked about it to the staff in the mountain and they recommend us Epic resto. It is a brand new restaurant in the city but we heard very good comments about it. They were right. The food is amazing, the ingredients are fresh (you can notice that easy) and the service is great. Waiters are very kind and they are aware of anything you need. There is a lot of variety in good wines and you have a nice view to the golf course. The place and the furniture are world class. We like it a lot. Definitely we will go back and this time we will stay at the hotel where epic is, Arelauquen hotel.

“Excellent on every level”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

The food and wine pairing were excellent. i have traveled all over the world and this was one of my favorite meals. The staff was very attentive and made great suggestions. The decor and setting, overlooking the golf course in the Arelauquen Lodge made the whole experience that much more enjoyable.

“Really terrific, world class”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We ate at Epic a number of times as it was our hotels restaurant. First I must say they do an incredible job of transforming themselves from breakfast through dinner. Breakfast is a casual experience with terrific service and amazing views of the golf course and the lake. The breads are all home made and eggs to order fabulous. The croissants and scones are really among the best I have ever had and there is no shortage of food as they keep bringing it. We ate lunch a few times and the club sandwich and burgers were all fresh and top notch. We had dinner 3 times and each time was a unique and amazing experience. They have tasting menu options as well as a la carte. We had the tasting menu one evening and it was just truly phenomenal. Each course progressed perfectly and we had the dine pairing. The tagliatelle with rabbit ragu was like nothing I have ever had and just wowed. The sommelier Nicolas was perfect, as he married each course and explained each wine to perfection. The service was very high end and synchronized and we really appreciated it as it was by far the best we experienced in Argentina. We ate at the bar one evening which is a spectacle in itself. The bar is made if Italian marble and shines with premium liquor. This was a great surprise to us as we hardly eat at hotel restaurants and the price was very reasonable. This was world class cuisine.

“Great new restaurant!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

This was my first time to the restaurant which is located in the Arelauquen Lodge by P Hotels. Before dinner we had drinks in the hotel lobby bar that has an amazing view of the countryside. The bar itself is pretty stunning, made of all marble. This is a very cozy place to have a pre-dinner drink. The restaurant is very tastefully decorated with muted colors that give the space a comfortable aura.
The chef on this particular night served up a series of delicacies in a tasting menu that delighted our palates! The food was varied, beautifully seasoned and absolutely delicious. Afterwards we were served a collection of dessert samples that were deliciously decadent! Overall this was a fine dining experience that makes me only want to return to discover more from this chef's repertoire.
