Known best for its wine, Mendoza is a bustling city to the east of Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere. Although it draws its share of adventure travelers, lured by the climbing, skiing, hiking and rafting opportunities within an easy drive of downtown, the area’s more than 1,000 vineyards bring oenophiles in even greater numbers.

What an amazing place for dinner with friends and family. If you have a larger party, you must request being in the wine room. It's so cool. Yes, people walk in - but who cares! Food was awesome, we had a bunch of appetizers. Prauns, friend cheese, corn (humita) All awesome. Wine selection is great too- no CA cabs but it's just too hard to get them down here.

Restaurant with international cuisine where you can enjoy the most exquisite dishes designed by the Chef Claudio Lucero. Lunches, dinners, buffet breakfasts and warm afternoon tea. A gastronomic proposal of high level.
Greatest breakfast in Mendoza, so far. Medialunas of at least 3 kinds, brownies, cakes, lemon pie, bread, sweets, really good. They had sparkling wine in the breakfast, that really made my day, having some glasses of fresh sparkling wine to begin the day. :)

Ituzaingo is a close doors restaurant in the most bohemian neigbourhood from Mendoza. The building is a loft wich shows real mendocinean lifestyle. The atmosphere is very eclectic style and combines artistic expresions (paintings and sculptures).The food is mostly tradional Argentine Cuisine in a real gourmet style. Wines are from the personal cellar of the owner (no wine list).The phrase for our concept is:¨Ituzaingo is a restaurante but still a house, welcome.
I booked this restaurant so far in advance that I was a bit worried that Gonzalo might forget about us! He didn't and it was a lovely experience. We enjoyed meeting the diverse group of diners, the food was good, the wine was good and the atmosphere was lovely. Definitely worth trying this closed door restaurant!

The high quality approach of Finca Decero transcends into the excellent cuisine of our restaurant. The seasonal menu of Finca Decero, designed by one of Mendoza's top chefs Andres Fozzatti, combines local ingredients and international styles of cuisine and matches perfectly with Decero wines. Whether an intimate lunch for two or a group of friends, Finca Decero provides a tranquil and high quality venue for lunch. Finca Decero restaurant is open daily from 12-3pm, bookings highly recommended.
We had a fixed four course meal that was really good. Included wine pairings that were perfect for each course

Melipal is located in the exclusive area of Agrelo, one of the best grape growing regions in Argentina. The winery elaborates great wines using its own grapes from the region.Melipal has been related to agricultural labor for more than three generations. Its philosophy is based on a sustainable and responsible use of natural resources. Melipal winery was founded in 2002 with the commitment of beginning a history of perfect matching between man, the vineyard and the terroir. A history where wine is its most remarkable expression.Its contemporary architecture design is surrounded by 87 has of vineyards, being most of them Malbec grapes.The facility is open to receive visitors all year round, giving our guest the choice of a private tour and tasting or the possibility of enjoying an exclusive lunch at our restaurant viewing the impressive Andes Range.
We had lunch at Melipal and the food was very good. The setting is excellent and the service was very good too. The price tag is high and at the time we asked for the check, we were given a ticket (not valid for tax identification purposes). We asked for the valid ticket and it was not a happy question apparently because all the smiles given until then, were gone. Unfortanelty this is a common practice in Argentina, but if they are going to give in general in any place a non valid ticket, you should not be paying the 21% tax part of it.
Other than this issue, the rest was perfect!

Open to Tuesday from Saturday at night.Abrimos de Martes a Sabados por la noche.
Visited this country restaurant based on a recommendation and am now recommending it for others. My wife and I had the Tasting Menu and were not disappointed. Both said menu and the good selection of wines are moderately priced. Service was attentive, but not overbearing. Our comments echo that of others in stating that the rooms are a bit 'stark' and the music did not seem to come out of the speakers in our room. Otherwise a very good experience for the dollars expended.

At Cavas Wine Lodge’s we are convinced that the best-tasting food is organically grown and harvested in ways that are ecologically sound. The menu changes every 3 months, designed to be appropriate to the season and composed to show off the finest ingredients obtainable. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner Monday through Sunday, by reservation only. Lunch served from 11:30 am, dinner starting 7 pm. We welcome children over 12 years of age.
In the spectacular Cavas Wine Lodge is a restaurant with an amazing chef of gourmet foods. Not surprising that one of the most spectacular hotels in all of South America would have an amazing gourmet cuisine. Visit when they have a tango show too. See the photos, need I say more…

Superb food, service and wines. Definitely top 3 in the area. The empanadas were to die for, so was the pork bondiola, and desert was a hit too. The staff was so friendly and the ambiance a lot of fun.

My wife and I ate dinner here on Valentine’s Day. They were running a special fixed price dinner for the holiday that included wine. The price was reasonable and the food and service were both high quality. The owner is very friendly, speaks good English and is very helpful. Glad we stopped in.

"Lo de Fer" is a truly authentic familiar restaurant attended by its owners. Here you will enjoy a friendly atmosphere, with great food and service. We offer typical homemade Argentinian and eclectic food. We open only at night and making a reservation is highly recommended. Our menu changes on a weekly basis and consists of a 5 course meal (appetizers, starters, mains and desserts, coffee and tea included.) Beverages are not included. We offer a unique experience and we are looking forward to seeing you soon! "
Greeted by Gladys, eight of u,s were welcomed into their home. We had been sent the menu beforehand but it exceeded our expectation. We had tapas of olives, sausage, Swiss chard sticks, potato sticks, dip and home made breads followed by black spaghetti with home made tomato and basil sauce. The entree was the best steak we have had in Argentina served with mushroom risotto and wok fried vegetables. Dessert was the most delicious white chocolate bavaroise with strawberries and home grown kumquats followed by coffee or tea. Portions were perfect and I was particularly pleased that my portion was appropriate to my size! We were a very diverse group of people from Europe and the US and everyone loved it. We brought our own wine which made the evening very economical and everyone had what they wanted to drink. I would recommend Fernando's cooking to everyone. It was something not to be missed.
