“Great empanadas”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Dropped by this place on the way back from our bike wine tour as one of the wineries recommended it. Great food and service. They didn't take credit cards when we were there but maybe they did have the visa sign on the door with a note so maybe it was broken. I wanted a salad and empanadas but the waiters informed me that would be a lot of food so he made me a small side salad not on the menu instead. The empanadas we light and fluffy. My husband got a bife de chorizo which I'm assured was delicious - especially the sauce that came with. Very casual dining but delicious.

“Delicious local food”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

On the Maipu Wine Route there´s a small restaurant offering regional plates. Be sure to stop at La Melesca restaurant when you are near Maipu.

“Delicious!!!!”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

This place is a gem in Coquimbito... after touring some of the wineries we decided to get something to eat and we ran into this cozy place! ... I ve got a Bife Chorizo and my brother had a Beef with Malbec sauce! both were absolutely delicious! ... but the most remarkable thing was that we arrive at 5 40! our bad! we know it was too late but the chef (owner) didnt have any problems to stay until later and prepare the meal just for us!! really friendly and welcoming!!! we really appreciated how warm they were to us!!!! un abrazo desde Chile hermanos!

“Excellent!”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

Maybe our best meal in Argentina!

The food was exceptional & the staff were incredibly welcoming. It had a very cosy feel.

Even if this place is a bit out of your way, it´s likely worth a trip (if it´s close by, you have no excuse! :-) )

“Wonderful setting, best empanadas ever”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

Our friends at home (Canada) had suggested this place, and it took us a bit to find it. We had lunch while touring wineries in the Maipu area of Mendoza.

Beautiful setting, great service, and truly the best empanadas we had in our 3 weeks in Argentina. Would go again at any opportunity.
