We were a little worried about disrupting such a civilized atmosphere when we arrived at this elegant winery. But they quickly set up a separate table for the kids and we were left to enjoy the scenery, wines and sensational food. The cava downstairs is worth a peek too. Great experience!

Be sure to be seated in the outside part of the restaurant to enjoy the amazing views of the Andes. The lunch is an experience on its own, hats of to the chef for preparing that wonderful five course pairing menu!!!
Our favourite part was dessert, everything was amazingly delicious, but dessert was a surprise just beacuse of its original presentation.
We loved it!!

We had a fabulous visit to Ruca Malen. It was our first stop in Mendoza after getting off the plane and we had the good fortune of landing on a lovely, sunny day and the indoor/outdoor dining space was the perfect location for our lunch. Would highly recommend (especially on nice days) that you request to sit outside.

The food was phenomenal and the wine pairings extraordinary. The staff was very attentive and helpful in teaching us about the different wines and why certain foods would bring out specific flavors.

Following our lunch, we were treated to a very intimate tour of the vineyard and production facility which was super customized to our questions and interests and added to the overall experience.

My only regret was that we didn't have our camera with us for lunch - those were views that I wish I had taken some pictures of!

We greatly enjoyed the marvelous lunch served to us on the patio, surrounded by vineyards and facing the snow-capped Andes. The food was artfully created and presented, and the wine, especially the Petit Verdot was a revelation to us Texans. We will have to return (since I left my scarf on the chair at lunch:-().

We stopped here for a pre-booked lunch and wine tasting. Great views, friendly and efficient service all at a great price. The food was delicious but nothing too fancy or gourmet. Our driver paid in advance which means that we got an even better deal! Would recommend. Wine tour is included but opted out as we'd already had 1 tour that day and they're all very similar.
