“Best Steak in Mendoza”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

We were spoilt for choice for restaurants in Mendoza, there are soooo many! La Lucia was one of the restaurants recommended to us by the lady running our little B&B. We had the most amazing steak for dinner, mine with a salad, and my husbands served with gorgeous golden wedge chips and Chimi Churri sauce. In fact, during our Argentinian stay, we made a point of visiting this restaurant twice for dinner, something we rarely do when travelling. My husband is convinced La Lucia served him the best meat (Ojo de Bife) during our three week vacation in Argentina & Chile, and that's saying a LOT, because he's fussy! Nice ambience/vibe in this restaurant, somewhere to enjoy a leisurely meal and a bottle of wine without feeling rushed.

“Good steak for Mendoza”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

It's hard to pick a restaurant on Aristides Villanueva given there are so many choices- we decided on La Lucia as it was recommended by some friends. We sat inside as it was raining outside (apparently this rarely happens in Mendoza!) and got a great table next to all the action at the grill window.
There is a decent wine list at reasonable prices. Solid steak menu, three of us chose the Ojo de Bife and the other chose Bife de Chorizo. Steaks were slightly more cooked than we liked, but the meat quality was still good. We also ordered a chicken salad and potatoes to share- a lot more food than we were able to eat. Service was average- was difficult to get our waiters attention, but when we did, he was very attentive. Overall, was our favourite steak of Mendoza.
