Restaurant details
Good for: Scenic view
Description: A la Sombra is located right under a beautiful walnut tree in the middle of a vineyard, which supplies a kind and gentle shade. Among the vineyards at Bodega Familiar Cecchin we invite you to enjoy, taste and relax. We have created a small natural environment which maintains the natural spirit of our organic certified winery. At this peculiar place you will be able to delight yourself with delicious healthy creole food paired with our organic wines along with organic products which all together offer an interesting natural experience.

“Closed down”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

After going to the wrong address first (the address shown in the trip advisor map takes you to the wrong place), we got a taxi to A La Sombre.

We were then told by one of the disgruntled staff that it had closed down last week as the owner had left and noone knew if he was coming back.

Expensive and frustrating outing.

Ring and check if the restaurant has re-opened before going there.

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

We ate outside under a huge walnut tree that serves as the roof of the entire restaurant. We looked at the vineyard during our entire meal while drinking the wine from the bodega. It was an amazing experience, with all kind of birds (including a couple of hawks) flying around. The food was excellent. It was a little bit of a hike from downtown Mendoza, but it ended up only being a US$20 cab ride each way. Most other guests though biked from Maipu. Definitely the most relaxing part of our trip to Argentina.

“Eating in the vineyards”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

have you ever thought of havng lunch in the middle of a vineyard under a walnut tree, having local food with a gourmet touch and organic wines? Well, this is no joke and this place is in Maipú, Mendoza. If you visit Mendoza, you can't miss it!!
