We ended up skipping the winery tour and just concentrated on getting a great table to view the Andes while dining … one of our best decisions of the week. The food is typically great and one of the ost unique presentations was for a simple apepetizer presented on a glass plate with a drawing of the Argentine location of... More

We had an excelent Wine Tasting. When we travel to Mendoza we went to 4 places to know the wine process, our flight delayed and when we arrived to Ruca Malen they were closing, we explain the situation and the sommelier gave us a private Wine Tasting, this place is modern and different to others and they were very kind...

I want to add my compliments to all of the others here. Ruca Malen is simply wonderful! It is no wonder that they won the title of Best Winery Restaurant in the World! The service was friendly and attentive. The view is amazing and the food is fantastic. If you can get here, don't pass up the opportunity!

Warm staff, excellent pairing of wines and delicious food. We were there on a very raining weekend when it rained for 3 days. Un believeable, but the rain didn't stop us from enjoying this amazing attraction. The restaurant just got an amazing review in the Argentine newspaper La Nacion as places not to miss in Mendoza.

Forget the more touristy places and have lunch here (spent a little bit more money getting there).The tour itself is great, guide speaks english very well, and lunch in amazing setting. Very sophisticated: 5 course lunch, different wine with every course while overlooking the snowcapped peaks of the Andes (and the wine fields of course).

This came unexpected, despite knowing beforehand that we were going to a high-level restaurant. I truly didn't expect that much from a winery-restaurant. The location and the architecture alone are breath taking. The food was on the same level. Their whole organisation from hosts, waiting staff to the kitchen team was perfect. Truly a unique experience!

On a beautiful sunny day with a magnificent view of the Andes, we enjoyed the 5 course quisine with wine pairings for each course. We have little to add to the excellent reviews already written other than to say how elegant and exquisite the experience was. Yes, it feels expensive but this is a first class international presentation that should... More

Just been there for lunch with my husband and we had a delightful lunch experience. The ambient is charming, near the vineyard, the service is precise and the food is absolutely delicious. Don't miss it!

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent meal in a beautiful setting in this highly rated winery. I think all the accolades are well justified. The trip starts with an informative tour of the winery but you then settle down to an absolutely fabulous five course meal with wines to match each course. The menu comes with an explanation as...
