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

We visited the restaurant in Nov 2013, in the evening. The service was prompt and polite. We had an unremarkable salad and a nice wine to start. We unfortunately ordered the giant bisteca for two. It is indeed a huge piece of meet on a bone. It was grilled, and came with potatoes and vegetables that were also grilled. The... More

The wine list is second to none and there is a courtyard where you can dine al fresco. They also have a private dining room that will fit 16-20p. The service is excellent.

First, I'll address with the positives. The building itself is charming with an old world grandeur, and the wine list was among the best we encountered throughout our travels in Argentina. Other than that, this restaurant seems to suffer from that all to familiar story: build a lofty reputation, garner a blind following, become a tourist attraction, hit cruise control... More

The arrival through the big gates is dramatic. The setting is absolutely spectacular. The service is ok, but we werent in a hurry. Our starters (shrimp and salad) was delicious, our main course, steak, was good. But our dessert stole the show - burnt fruits and ice cream!! As a -non-dessert' person, I have to say it was the best... More
