Best Filet Mignon

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

Food and wine were both nice, but they made us feel at home right from the beginning, even though we arrived very early by Argentine standards..

If you wish to eat outside, make sure to come later in the evening after the traffic calms down. The building is old and beatiful. My girlfriend described the bathroom as something made for a princess. The fresh bread and eggplant mousse was really good while going through the menu. We shared a refreshing ceviche starter. I had the 500... More

Decent food, great steak & great wine. Great place & I would go back. It's a little quiet for my tastes but it's really excellent & great value

Contrary to other reviews, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. The restaurant was recommended by our concierge and all our food was excellent (no overdone or undercooked veg!). I am not sure why people expect wait staff to speak English (you are in Argentina, buy a phrase book - surely part of the fun travelling to another... More
