Nice ambiance in an old converted house, decent menu and wine list, service a little slow even for here! Nice trout, ok steaks.
This place made us probably one of the best steaks we had on our trip. It was cooked medium rare (what a lot of the parrillas in buenos aires could not figure out). The fish we had too was amazing with some mustard almond sauce. The wine list was great as well. Definitely a place to try when in Mendoza.
We ate at Ocho Cepas tonight and it was excellent The rib eye steak was the best we have had in our 3weeks in the South of Argentina accompanied by a delicious 3 lettuce salad made up of the obvious plus grilled pears and blue cheese. The local wine selection by the glass were all very expertly chosen and were... More
Mendoza is renowned by its wine production. Yes, great wine! International class wine! We consumed a nice bottle of Malbec from Nieto Bodega. But meat, the emblematic Argentinian food. is a problem. Even more when we compare with Buenos Aires. Because we were in Argentina, we asked for “parrillada” everywhere. This restaurant has a fine menu, try everything else, but... More
I know Mendoza has plenty of options when it comes to good food, but this place was our favorite. The fillet mignon was one of the best I've ever had and was cooked perfectly to our liking.

A charming restaurant, which feels like you are at someones house. We enjoyed our experience here. We brought our own wine, and the corkage fee was minimum. We ate the grilled meat with 6 different varieties of sausage, steak and chicken but the winner of the evening was the osso buco pasta. Enjoy!
If you didn't pay much attention to the odd mix of midevil, victorian, modern, and rustic styles in the restaurant, the colors were warm and it was a pleasant enough atmosphere. The service was decent, but they hovered too much. There are always one or two servers standing by the door observing the restaurant and waiting for someone to call... More
We sometimes get in a rut of going to the same restaurants, and it's hard not to go to Azafran or Francesco for this high level of food, but Ocho Cepas fits right in, and the setting in a traditional old home on the corner of Espejo y Peru is delightful. I don't like eating outside as it's too noisy,... More
We had dinner Ocho Cepas last night and it was one of the best meals I've ever had in my life! We ordered the empanadas to start which were our first in Argentina and totally delicious! They have a great wine selection in a wide range of prices. My husband ordered the filet and "broken potato" - the steak was... More
