The view of the Andes beyond the vineyard, an incredible concoction of food coordinated with the vineyards wines, and the attentive staff make this a must for lunch while visiting vineyards.

We enjoyed the location, the wines, the food and the service. If you haven't been to a paired meal in a vineyard, I highly recommend this one.

Lunch was held in a glass atrium in the middle of the vineyard. Without even tasting the food and wines I was impressed. The wines and dishes were paired wonderfully!!

While it is still in the top tier of the Mendoza lunch food experiences, it has lost a little of its luster. The food is still outstanding, along with the presentations, but the service has slipped. The entire wait staff disappears for long gaps. The chef is inventive with changing menus on a seasonable basis. If you go get a... More

My husband and I visited in November without a reservation. Fortunately there was one table left in this busy little bodega. The short tour of the winery we did prior to lunch was informative. The lunch menu was unique and delicious. We loved every dish excluding the desert - which was a bit of a let down. Wine pairings matched... More

We went there as a stop for lunch in a tour and even on our way i thought the view was amazing. This is what you imagine when you think of going to Mendoza, sitting in a nice restaurant with vineyards all over and a view of the white topped mountains. Its a medium winery, i didn't think the tour... More

This is a very cute, medium size winery with great wines! We did the guided tour and stayed for the 6 course lunch paired with their wines. The food is contemporary ,exotic and very well cooked. It wasn't the most delicious food I have eaten in my life, but I can appreciate it for its exquisiteness. The view and the... More

We had a 7 course lunch with wines at Ruca Malen. Each course was a delight and accompanied by one of their amazing wines (the Malbec our favourite). We sat on a terrace looking out over the vineyards with the snow capped Andes as the backdrop - SPECTACULAR!

We did not take the tour; we went for the 6 course lunch. The place is gorgeous and we had a beautiful sunny day as we sat on the outdoor patio for lunch, overlooking the Andes. The table is beautifully set and you are given the set menu so you can look at the description of what you are about... More
