We ate here with a wedding party the day after a wedding in a group of almost 20 people. The food was very good (the calamari was awesome)! And the service, given the size of our group was great. Good wine list!

Good restaurant – far from San Rafael. The best if you stay in Algodon wine estat. The staff was very friendly, but a little overwhelmed with the order. We been the first guests in the evening but there were no all order available especially the Argentinean steak. Alternatives in the narrow bounds were offered. The dessert - very tasty, but... More

Plus wonderful outdoor dining settings, their restaurant Chez Gaston has authentic Argentine cuisine made from the traditional Argentine clay oven and flame broiling pit. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, and prepared from local ingredients from their own plantation and those of their neighbors. Cooking classes and seminars are regular year-round.

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!
