I traveled a lot, but never had a culinary experience like the one I had in this place. The picada a mix of everything you can imagine was of the table size, huge, and every single dish delicious, you can eat until explode. You also get a main dish in my case the beef with wine was outstanding. The waiters... More

This is not so much a restaurant as a private dining experience. The place is rustic, but beautiful. We had to make a reservation in advance, and we were taken to our own private room that was all set up for us when we arrived. A huge spread with many tasty and unusual treats. Some were not so tasty, but... More

If you go, make sure you eat downstairs in a cave. This place is lots of fun and you'll get way more food than you can eat, all for about US$25 / person. It's a steal. I think we counted about 45 individual appetizers on our table, which included crazy amounts of meat, cheese, grilled veggies, etc (no way to... More

Bring the alka seltzer and make sure you dont eat for a day before! Waaaaay to much food for 2 people and honestly is sad that they waste so much food serving in over abundance! It's a WHOLE table of appetizers, with beans, cheeses, meats, olives, dips, etc. They then serve the main course, a beef stew and complete with... More

it is more the style of a big appetizer. but it is so big, that you won´t need anything else. the house wine is very good for the price. if you are more than 10, it is a great place. please, remember to call in advance for reservations.

A local, tapas style restaurant. Probably best for groups of four or more, make a reservation a day in advance. When you arrive, there will be a large table filled with several dozen different bowls, jars, platters, and plates of food. Pate, meats, cheeses, roasted garlic, artichoke, potatoes and more. Entirely too many things to list. In addition to the... More

We enjoyed a wonderful unique lunch in the wine cellar. There was so much food all you could do was taste each tapa so you didn't miss out on anything. The host was very gracious explaining the history of the winery and showing us around. Each course was very tasty and the wine was fantastic. We rolled away about 2.5... More

What a charming restaurant tucked away in lujan de cuyo. A private room was set up for the two of us - a bottle of wine and an enormous assortment of tapas laid out on the table. Very different from the typical meals in Mendoza. The service was great, too. Wonderful experience, one of our favorite meals in wine country.

We were taken there as part of a winery tour and imagine the surprise when we walked in! The set-up for just two was amazing and we had great difficulty in doing justice to all the offerings. Food was amazing and service was superb.

What a gorgeous winery and amazing meal. The service was incredible, the amount of food obscene and the wine washed it all down. A must visit...
