Beautiful view & great food overall. My only issue is one of my dishes was frozen when it should have been chilled, which really bothered me since what really drew us to this winery was its food. Some advice in terms of transportation since I saw many people write they paid $100 USD for a round trip ride to/from Mendoza.... More

We visited Ruca Malen as part of a wine tour guided by Peter Cubillos of Peter Wine Tours. I personally selected this winery to visit and to enjoy one of their famous multi-course lunches with wine. The experience, the food, and the people were outstanding. I even found a kindred spirit in Eziquiel, the owner who also enjoys his steak... More

Mendoza has a lot of fine lunch options but the 5 course menu in Bodega Ruca Malen is one of the best to get. the Ruca Malen wines accompagnied with the lunch were just perfect. Reception and waitress are very kind, but making a reservation in advance is a must.

We had a great experience at Ruca Malen, we reserved last minute for lunch and they were very acomodating and the lunch was really delicious and creative! The wines were nicely paired, and the setting was spectacular. They had a vegetarian menu for me, which was delicious. Highly recommended!

View is very beautiful, with the Andes as background for the vineyard. Service is very good. Food and wine are just average, in my opinion, but the experience is good, overall. If you are going there just for the winery, the food will be an excellent extra.

The most sensational five course lunch with paired wines. One of the greatest ever settings in the foothills of the Andes. This is a must if ever in Mendoza!

Recommended by our fantastic hotel (Cavas Wine Lodge), we arrived for our tour and lunch and were more than impressed! A beautifully designed space, surrounded by vineyards and stunning views onto the Andes were the setting for a most delicious and perfectly orchestrated tasting menu with wine pairing. The price tag is a bit higher than you'd expect for lunch,... More

We loved their 5 course wine pairing lunch at the vineyard, preceeded by the bordega tour. The food and wine was fabulous and over the top prefect, and if in Mendoza is a MUST DO.
