Perfect downtown dinner

Located in a charming refurbished townhouse, this is a terrific restaurant. Excellent food and service. The grilled provoleta appetizer and fresh local trout were great.

Food was quite good and it was not very expensive. The place is rather small. Staff very nice, friendly and courteous. In the whole, a good place to go in Mendoza

While the Steak in Argentina is renowned to be excellent (and it is), this was by far the best steak I had on our trip - I ordered the sirloin here and it was as lean as a filet with exceptional taste. Honestly, the best steak i can ever remember having and I frequent many of the top steakhouses in... More

Nice restaurant though as a local place its dead if you go anytime before 9 for dinner but then most other places in Mendoza are the same. Good food, nice portions, reasonable wine list. Try it - you'll not be disappointed though its not a "chef" named place.

We all had filet mignon and the steaks were the best ever! The salads were excellent as well. We added a bottle of reasonably priced Malbec and we were set!

Ate here on our first night in Mendoza. We had excellent food (my husband had the rib eye and I had the pumpkin ravioli with Malbec sauce). Both meals were fantastic. We split the tapas plate as a starter which was not at all what we expected. It was basically 3 small sandwiches. We would not order that again but... More

Excellent food and wine. However, the waitress was not very helpful, friendly or knowledgeable. Osado (grilled meats) was outstanding. Would go back there again but will ask for another server.

We tried this place because we wanted to have some nice Argentinean steak while in Mendoza. Initially, we chose the better known Facundo, but after a bad experience there (really rude wait staff and weird dinner service set up), we left before we even got to order, and gave our business to Ocho Cepas. We were so glad we did!... More

We dined here one evening and had a lovely time. The trout was cooked on the grill, the wine selection good, and the service from Juli was excellent.

Our last night in argentina was spent here and it was wonderful! Building and room was beautiful. I heard the building was the home of the architect that helped build the steps for the San Martine statue in the big park. Tons of wait staff and very good English We were tired of steak so we had trout- different preps.... More
