The old cliche that Argentina has the best beef and the worst cooks didn't apply here - wonderful ocho de bife, the tenderest and juiciest I've ever had. Good selection of wines and delicious dessert. My companion was, however, disappointed with her pasta dish - the sauce was made of tomato concentrate and needed thinning down.

Recommended by both hotel (park hyatt) and tripadvisor. We arrived by 9PM and were the only guests for a long time. We were 4 persons of which 3 ordered meat, all medium rare, trying our best to explain that it should be pink, not red, i.e. "rosado" or "jugoso". We got one rare, one medium rare and one very well... More

Visited this restaurant based on the reviews from TripAdvisor. The food was amazing. I had steak with grilled vegetables and it was done to perfection. The only issue I had with this place was the slowest service. I went there earlier, before it got busy but I still found that's the service was slow. I am Not sure if it... More

My husband and I had dinner at Ocho Cepas and we were underwhelmed by the service and the food. My husband had the BBQ pork and the meat was very fatty. I had the grilled chicken salad and It was pretty good.I was expecting better quality since the prices were a little higher than what I have paid in Argentina.... More

We had a lovely dinner here for a reasonable rice. Not the best steak we've had in Argentina as it was not quite the "melt in the mouth" meat we've had in some places (although was still very good) but the wine choice which was recommended by the waitress was one our most enjoyable bottles we had in Mendoza. Very... More

One of the better, more consistent restaurants downtown. Cute old house, with a more private area upstairs. The name refers to the limited wine list, but even with only eight wineries represented, the list is deep, if not wide.

Visited Ocho Cepas on Saturday night at the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel. The food was delicious! Some of the best steak we've ever had and for a great price. The ravioli were to die for and we ordered a second plate for the table after loving it. Great wine and desert. Went back to the hotel full... More

This was an excellent dinner and such an excellent value! This older home turned into a restaurant was a delightful culinary experience for us. The Malbec reduction was amazing and the meat cooked to perfection.

We went to Ocho Cepas on our last night in Mendoza after it was recommended to me by multiple friends who had recently visited. We were there on a Monday night, so it wasn't crowded. We had amazing empanadas as starters, amazing steaks and shared a creme brûlée for dessert - every course simply amazing. We had a local malbec... More
