Incredible!

We ate here after a long day of relaxing by the pool in the sun and drinking. We were basically exhausted. I'd read that there was a lot of food involved and indeed there was!

We were told by a friend to go here for lunch. We are so glad we did! We hired bikes and rode there from a Winery down the road about a 5min bike ride away. We made a reservation the day before and when we arrived they were expecting us and had our table setup beautifully ready to go, covered... More

This restaurant is incredible. The food, wine and service was excellent. And the ambiance was perfect. You get a private room that is decorated beautifully, filled with an enormous amount of food. The wine is unlimited, and great. And then after dessert they will bring you champagne and cigars. Perfect! A must visit if you are in the Mendoza area.

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
