They serve great meatdishes (meat is from their own livestock). They have an own Argentinian based wine brand with great white and red wines (also for sale at the reception). Great for business meetings/dinners.

Please note, my notes and review concern the restaurant part, there's also the so-called bodega part and I am less happy about that part, so I always reserve at the restaurant part. Variety of the menu is great and changes every now and then, also...More
