  • The Bodega Ruca Malen lies about 30 minutes from the Centre of Mendoza. We schedule the visit and shared lunch in advance. The previous day we received an email from bodega solicitanto confirmation. On arrival we were very well received. The very friendly and polite always guide explained how it would work. The visit itself is fast, then we were directed to the small and charming restaurant. The view is indescribable (as you can see in the photos). Although small, the trick is to get there early to get one of the 4 tables in front with view to the mountain. The 6 dishes were wonderful. More than recommend!

  • We went to the tasting with lunch in 5 steps. The place, the kitchen, the service and the rest in the Sun against the mountains cannot be compared. Safety pin!

  • Very good place to test food author and pairings. The food is very good, and the wines... There are best in Mendoza, but worth it penalty go. Care is very good.

  • What an amazing experience by the foothills of the Andes. Had the prix fixe 5 course menu paired with different wines and it was just surreal. The staff was so nice and knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back!
  • Food was good, great experience with the lunch course, the wines were good but didn't hit great.
  • Soft light fruity taste . Easy on the palate
  • The prix fixe menu offers a great variety of delicious and beautiful small plates paired with very good wines. The peaceful pastoral landscape and the splendid view of the mountains was a nice bonus. This is a great place to spend the siesta between wine tastings in the Luján de Cuyo.
