Description: Chez Gaston features a traditional clay oven and flame broiling pit, and specializes in authentic Argentine gourmet cuisine. Each mouthwatering dish from our seasonal menu is prepared with only the freshest local ingredients from our own plantation and those of our neighbors, including an eclectic variety of fruit and vegetables, olive oil, and other simple essentials. The fine wines born of Algodon’s vineyards and winery are an essential addition to each meal.

“In the top 5 meals of my life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2011

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 it just beyond words good. It is truly the best restaurant in San Rafael, and maybe in the Provence of Mendoza as a whole.
