  • Superb food and wine and all in all, a great way to spend an afternoon just outside of Mendoza. It's a little bit far out of the city, but certainly worth the visit for the experience and the high quality service, food and wine. Many thanks to our hosts - we'll be sure to recommend you to our friends.
  • Jaw-dropping scenery, superb choices of chef designed menu and of course high quality wines... The chef creates dishes out of this world using organic ingredients from their own garden... don't miss this spot next time you are in Mendoza. Enjoy lunch any day of the year.
