It is about 10 miles from the center of town on the edge of a beautiful golf course but worth the drive. Lovely outdoor seating in the warm months. the food was expertly prepared and the service was wonderful. Their wine's are from their own vineyard and are excellent.

I had the best experience with this restaurant! We made a reservation for lunch, just in case it was full that day, we also wanted to see the estate with a guided visit. The manager arranged a guided visit just for us. The food was amazing, the wine was excellent, the service was remarkable and the restaurant itself is beautiful.... More

Nice tables to enjoy a glass of wine and snacks. Driving range out front provided some fun for the boys. Table service could have been a bit better. We asked for ketchup for our fries and they brought it out after we'd already finished the fries!

This is far and away the best food we have had in San Rafael. The friendliness of the staff, and quality of the fare, is unparalleled.

This is the place to go for freshly cooked, locally produced food and wine. They have a range of dishes on the menu and it's really hard to make a choice. We all chose something different from each other. Every plate that came out was a work of art and tasted delicious. The wine is excellent too. The location of... More

Yes... it sounds crazy... but is is. After visited hundreds of restaurants in different countries, I can say that this is the best or at least in my top 3. I tasted over 10 dishes, all red wines, and several desserts. All of them are 9 or 10 points. The flavors, the ingredients, the love.... great!

What can I possibly say? Fantastic wine (a shiraz blend by the Algodon Winery), fantastic food (homemade handmade empanadas, chivito (lamb) and obviously the meat), and a great laid back setting. It was traditional Argentinean food done in almost a bistro kind of preparation. Not as heavy as eating at a Parrilla and the quality and the local ingredients make... More
