The hotel concierge recommended this restaurant to us without hesitation...... now we now why! WOW and WOW. Romantic, top service, and the chef gets a 10+! We walked 10 min's from Hotel Huentala along pedestrian walks, through a lovely and safe park to the street that Ocho Cepas was located. It looked like a neighborhood and the reason is, the... More

We had a good dinner at Ocho Cepas. We loved the atmosphere and the architecture. An easy walk from our hotel, the prices were reasonable--good wine selections. We would come back.

A wonderful place to have a relaxing meal. Food was great, meals beautifully prepared, great presentation and wonderful taste. Service was absolutely 110%. Spent 2-3 hrs enjoying the ambience. Easy location. Old home converted into restaurant. We love restaurants, and this was our favorite for Mendoza ( and most of Argentina).

The first time I visited Ocho Cepas was as a tourist. After living in Mendoza for over a year I am still a loyal customer. This is a very reliable restaurant. I love the intimate setting. It is usually packed with tourists but this does not have to be a bad thing. They begin serving dinner early which is a... More

This is my absolute favorite restaurant in Mendoza. I always have the trout ceviche and steak, and I have to say that they consistently give me the best steak I've had in my 8 years in Argentina. That's the highest praise I can give. The restaurant is a bit dark but I find the decor very tasteful and the wine... More

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.
