I went there because I heard this reataurant was elected the 7th in the world some years ago. Ok, food is very good, but far from to be among the best in the world. Restaurant is a bit far from Mendoza downtown, about 12 minutes taxi ride and US$5. Specializes in meat but has all options. A liked grilled Octopus... More

The menu here is a bit daunting. There were enough interesting appetizers to make a complete meal for the entire table; interesting salads (including braised chickory and several interesting sea food salads), charcuterie, roasted vegetables. Meat offerings included the expected beef, as well as great braised goat, rabbit, seven hour cooked lamb and llama. We were a group of four... More

I LOVED this restaurant, the staff, the food, the ambiance and the building itself, all of it! I have to admit was really hard to find the place, even with GPS! so make sure you DO ask locals how to get to this place, and make sure you make reservation to this restaurant. The building doesn't say much from outside,... More

My wife and I came here on a recommendation from our hotel. We asked for an authentic evening amongst locals. We were not disappointed. We were able to get an " early" reservation at 8:30 pm. The food is very good, especially the desserts. But beware, come very hungry! The portion sizes are considerable. In fact, gigantic. If you want... More

This restaurant sits in the historic Bodega Escorihuela Winery established in 1884..hence its name. The restaurant has an elegant interior atmosphere but we liked sitting in the outdoor gardens for nighttime dining. The food was excellent but the service did not seem up to snuff.

So, a very good restaurant, even if I'm not sure it lives up to all the hype in Food & Wine and Fodor's. I had braised lamb, very good, very rich. Desserts were lovely, nice wine. Had great food and wine everywhere in Mendoza. This was a very nice meal, even if not the meal of a lifetime. I'd say... More

Okay, so some context is due here: I'm rating this restaurant as average among its peers, not among all restaurants. Compared to the greasy diner in my hometown, I certainly enjoyed 1884 better. However, having eaten (and paid less) at other restaurants developed by celebrity chefs, we didn't find anything to be all that special about 1884. That's not to... More

To this day, the food that I had at 1884 was one of the best meals of my life! The atmosphere is classy and calm. The bar in the lobby is an elegant place to get a drink while you wait for your table. The service was good, the food was beautiful and delicious. Wish I could go back!

The place is beautiful and very elegant. The food and service, though, are not up the prices charged: food was good but not excellent and service was slow, with less waiters than needed for the number of tables
