We ate dinner at Florentino with two other couples we were traveling with. This was our fourth dinner in Mendoza and was an outstanding experience. The restaurant is in an old house which provides a warm and cozy atmosphere. There is open kitchen which adds to the ambiance. The service was outstanding. Between us, we ordered several pasta dishes, a... More

We really liked the food at this restaurant. The steaks were fantastic and the service was great. It was close to our hotel. The tables outside were lovely and there is a window where you can watch them barbequing in the kitchen. VERY cool!

Florentino ceased to trade earlier this year. Pablo Del Rio took over the premises about 2 months ago. The restaurant is now called Fuente y Fonda. See my review.

We went to Florentino for dinner at random, walking through the town and being charmed by the outside of the restaurant. The inside is just as charming, with a beautiful courtyard. Unfortunately, the food was quite underwhelming (fish for me, steak for my girlfriend), not so tasty and on the verge of being cold. It was also quite pricey compare... More

We stumbled across this restaurant attracted by the fact that is opens earlier than most and our little children were hungry. We loved the courtyard setting and we're made to feel completely at ease by the staff. The food was one of the best meals of our trip: a well designed menu with interesting combinations of flavours. Good wine and... More

My husband and I went to Florentino Bistro and loved it. The setting, wine, and food were amazing. We had the chicken and it was probably the best chicken we have ever had. The waiter had the chef split our meal for sharing and it was perfect. The wine selection is also Wonderful. This was one of our best meals... More

The flavor and texture combinations in the watermelon salad were divine! My chicken entree was dry, but the grilled butternut squash that accompanied the entree made up for it. Dining solo tonight, I felt ignored by the waiter. For example, I figured bread was not being served until I saw another table get a basket of rolls, I poured my... More

Florentino was recommended by a friend from Canada living in Mendoza who noted that it was run by young friends beginning their foray into the restaurant business on a small scale. Our reservation was honoured perfectly and we sat in a small covered courtyard with a view of the two young chefs at work in their kitchen. The ambience was... More

This restaurant was very cute inside. Service was excellent. But the menu was very small. Not many choices. I enjoyed my ricotta ravioli, but she did not like her risotto. Bread before dinner was good. My house torrontes by Alta Vista was great.
