Unfortunately we couldn’t visit this winery due to the extremely bad communication. They are very slow in responding to the multiple emails and texts I sent and then finally one day before we arrive in Mendoza they tell us they don’t have availability for the whole month. Would have been nice if they told us that sooner. Such a shame.

This Bodega is quite nice and unfortunately for a vegetarian person their menu is quite disappointing. We could talk to the chef and he admitted our critics. Some pairings are not optimal according to the logic that: wine+food=explotion of flavors. The service is the best that I have seen in Argentina. It is a pity that you pay European price in this place and at the end you don't get satisfied.

This is refined dining (with wine pairing) and truly memorable. We enjoyed a 6 course lunch with wine pairing at Ruca Malen. From start to finish our palette was delighted and surprised. The attention to detail in both presentation and preparation of the dishes was 5 star. This is a gem and I will return. Thank you Javier Caruso @ hashtagwinetours.com for making this happen for us!

Our party of 6 had prepaid for a 7 course meal. Upon arrival they asked us to sanitize our hands which we all complied with this request. They then asked us to note where we traveled from and the date we arrived. this information was provided we were seated and served champagne. then after 15 minutes they returned stating they could not serve US citizens and asked us to leave.

Dear sir/madam, I would like to build on your review. You were asked, in good terms, to leave the place considering that you had arrived to our country 5 days before your reservation, moment at which US it had already declared your country as a risk one considering the covid 19 virus. Eventhough this situation, that clearly it was unconfortable for you and the team, we should had cancelled your reservation previouslly on your arrival to the winery, but at that time was not clear enough how to manage this kind of situations. I would like to resume, that you were not asked to leave the place for being US citizen; we only activated a preventition procedure considering the global risk to get in touch with people travelling from red zone countries, as US. Best regards and apoligies for the inconvenience caused. Fernanda

We visited Bodega Ruca Malen with Bus Vitivinícola Hop On & Hop Off. We were each greeted at the door with a complementary glass of champagne and a warm welcome. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. They were patient with our limited Spanish and provided a tour in English explaining the production of the wine. The tasting was incredible. The views spectacular and the environment well done. Of the wineries we visited, Ruca Malen was by far our favourite.

Reservations essential. Set menu with wine pairings. Everything was delicious. Excellent service. Dining area has views of the vineyard. Great experience. Allow PLENTY of time for the lunch - it's worth it.

Exceptional lunch. The setting is outstanding as well as the very attentive personalized service. Cozy and amazing view. Arrived a bit behind the schedule, still had the 7 courses lunch. Creative dishes pairing with very good wines. 2 of them were not even for sale yet. I would have taken without the label. Every detail is carefully considered. Their hospitality is beyond fantastic. Worth it every penny spent there. One of the best meals in Mendoza very good price quality ratio. I would recommend it and go back.

My wife and I visited this winery for lunch. One of the greatest delights of Mendoza is a leisurely winery lunch, with multiple courses paired with exquisite wines, and a gorgeous vineyard and mountain view. Ruca Malen is one of the best and we loved it.

Food ain't bad, but it surely isn't among the top 5 places I've been in Mendoza.
Service is terrible, prepare to wait a lot.
Maybe if it was cheaper, it would be worth to visit, but it was the most expensive place we were in Mendoza.
Don't go.

We recently had lunch at Ruca Malen. Their 5-course tasting lunch was not cheap (280 pesos total for 2 persons) but the food was excellent and the dining room had floor-to-ceiling windows which faced the sunny vineyards and the snowy Andes mountain range.

I was a bit concerned about eating a 5-course set meal at lunch but the portion sizes were small and perfect. Each was paired with a different wine from Ruca Malen. We started with a dried apple chip with a dollop of lemon mousse, which was followed by a homemade beef empanada with a side of zesty pepper salsa. Next, we had a filet of beef with sauteed vegetables and then a lemon, rosemary and chardonnay granita as a palate cleanser. For dessert, we were given a dulce de leche flan with a fresh fruit salsa and coffee with homemade chocolates. We found most of the Ruca Malen wines to have a degree of bitterness which didn't appeal to us but the food and setting were stunning and we would certainly return. One last note of caution when planning a lunch visit- their lunch is served at a VERY leisurely pace and took about 2 1/2 hours.
