I may be biased as Ruca Malen wines have been on my list of favourites for a year now, but our 5 course lunch with wine pairing was absolutely perfect and decadent. As one of the more expensive lunch pairings in the area, this one does not disappoint. Staff was attentive, wine was beautiful, and the food was sublime. Definitely... More

Very attractive location. Bodega serves a gourmet five course lunch with wines to accompany each course. The tenderloin was very good. The service was very friendly. In the end I found wines I liked better elsewhere, but that does not take away from a wonderful experience and several in our party thought the wines were outstanding. Don't miss this experience!

The 5 Course lunch is very artistically presented, quite innovative in mixing out flavors and ingredients, and is served with generous pouring of locally produced wines paired with each course. A real treat. The tenderloin was out of this world. We were told that this restaurant received the award of being the best winery restaurant in the World in 2013.... More

This is my 6th trip to Mendoza and I have been to many wineries. In fact, this was my 4th visit to Ruca Malen. The first and second times were incredible, but they have not been as good as in the past. We had an issue with our seating that left us with a bad taste. We reserved a "front... More

We thoroughly enjoyed Ruca Malen. When we showed up we received a quick tour of the wine making facility but what makes Ruca Malen great is the wine paired lunch. We got to try multiple wines we liked the Cabernet and Chardonnay in particular.

We found Ruca Malen to have really great food. One of the best steaks we had our entire trip. Very pricy compared to other vineyards we visited. Did not find the wine living up to all of the hype.

This vineyard does the most enjoyable food with matching wines in a pretty restaurant among the vines. The food was delicious to look at and to eat and the atmosphere charming.

Close enough to Mendoza for a casual visit, but close enough to the Uco for the view. Whie the wines tend towards the structure forward, an unusual treat for this part of the world, the real treat is the lunch. While not always perfect pairings, the food and wine are both very good and professionally served. The menu change to... More
