Nice Caprese salad and great pork sandwich. Sit away from the street to avoid fumes and excessive street noise.

“Empanadas and more.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

On our first night in Mendoza we ate at El Palenque on the main restaurant row in the city. The place was cozy inside and also had sufficient dining space outside. We ordered beer, empanadas, and salad. We really enjoyed the food and the beer was on tap ( a little unusual for Argentina). Overall, we were pleased with our dinner. The cost was about $23 and the wait staff were fine.

It was so fun to sit outside and watch people while enjoying a tasty meal. Prices were reasonable, too.

“Great empanadas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

Fantastic restaurant. As with everywhere else in Mendoza don't go out to eat until after 9 to get the most from the atmosphere of this charming place.

“Fun restaurant with great people-watching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

We went to this restaurant after walking through the park - it was close and had plenty of outside seating. The food was good and we sat for quite awhile, watching street traffic. Fun!
