Restaurants and Bars in Mendoza, Argentina – Gourmet Hot-Spots and Local Favorites

 

 

Mendoza is a charming city with a small-town atmosphere. The friendly locals, superb setting and gastronomic delights make it a perfect vacation spot with something for everyone.

Born and bred in Mendoza, I’ve spent my life keeping track of all the developments in the Mendoza food and drink scene. Some of my favorite restaurants, cafes, and bars in town are internationally renowned for their gourmet cuisine and fine wines; others are lesser-known favorites frequented by locals who appreciate quality cooking in a welcoming atmosphere.

If you have any favorite Mendoza restaurants or bars of your own, or you know of any special places to eat and drink in the area, please let us know about them in the comments at the bottom of the page, and we will add them to our map.

Here is my guide (including a map and list of details) to all the best places to eat and drink in and around Mendoza, Argentina:

    We ate an AMAZING asado at the La Aldea Parrilla Sandwiches on Aristides Villanueva #495.The meat was tender, juicey and you could tell that it was very good quality. Apart from that our waiter Tito spoke fluent english, gave us excellent service and recomended us a fabulous wine without us even having to ask him. I would tell everyone about La Aldea and about our waiter Tito. We will be back for sure!!!
