We went to Ruca Malen for a five course food and wine pairing and were blown away on the food and wine. My favorite was the pork in a light cream and chili sauce that was out of this world. My friends loved the beef course. Of course, their wines paired perfectly. The restaurant is a separate building in the... More

Absolutely amazing experience. Highly recommended. We arrived 30 mins early which is recommended to get an outside table. The view of the mountains is great. Also meant we could have our first course before the tour to stave the hunger. We did a quick tour, just long enough then back to the lunch! Lunch was 5 courses with matching wine... More

I can only agree with the reviews already listed, great food, wine and service. we were travelling in the Mendoza area and wanted to visited two wineries one large and one small Ruca Malen being the later, we took the tour but to be honest one vineyards tour is much the same as the next. Depending on where you are... More

Excellent gourmet lunch paired with wines, at Ruca Malen, which is in a beautiful setting. Make sure you book a table outside (unfortunately we had not), as it is much nicer, if weather permits. No winery tour.

Our tour company suggested this winery as a good lunch stop. We did not have a formal wine tasting, but each course of the meal was paired with a different wine. The main course (of five, including two deserts) was paired with two wines. Unusual for Argentina, the courses were small. We were fearful of yet another multi-course gastronomic marathon... More

I am a North American tourist in Mendoza looking for a Bodega that serves a lunch. According to Trip Advisor Ruca Malin is highly rated. Upon going to the RM Website I see nothing of a lunch, only food served during sampling. There are other issues that make the search for info difficult. The print on the website is small... More
