“Good Food + Good Service + See & Be Seen = Best of Argentina”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

This is an Institution. Even if they had a worthy competitor, there'd still not be justification to eat anywhere other than Ruca Hueney. Inherent in the experience is dining with so many other, happy people who seem to eat there regularly. At such times the place feels like a club.

“Grilled meat and regional specialties”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

We had a really good time at this restaurant. The food was great. My wife and I shared a mixed meat grill, and both had plenty. Our service wasn't great, but looking around most people seemed to have better luck with the other waiters/waitresses.

“Good Seafood - Steak house in Fishing Country”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

Junin de los Andes is in the heart of Argentina's trout fishing country, and Ruca Heuney, the oldest restaurant in town, serves up trout in many ways. The trout that our party had was all excellent. We had great service from a quietly efficient and experienced waitstaff, the prices were very reasonable, the atmosphere was comfortable and family-friendly. Ruca serves meat dishes as well, so steak lovers will be happy. Ruca is located right on the main square of Junin (which is a very small town) so it is very convenient. Highly recommended.

“Traditional Argentine food with some arabian specialties.”
Reviewed 6 December 2011

The oldest and still best restaurant in Junin. Excellent service and an extensive menu. Arabian specialties are an added bonus. Arturo and Mariana are warm hosts and are always on premises. Some of the waiters have been their over 17 years.

“Warm family restaurant, best service in town”
Reviewed 21 April 2011

We spend our summers is this charming and relatively tranquilo town (compared to San Martín which is positively porteña). La Ruca is a lovely family owned parrilla that offers all the classics (excellent matambrito de cerdo) as well trout and a menú of middle eastern specialities. Arthur and his family aré warm and the wait staff profesional. Dont leave without trying their homemade flan with dulce de leche and crema.
