Lovely restaurant, fantastic food. My husband had the shaved lamb and I had the mascarpone and pumpkin ravioli. They have one of the finest wine lists in Mendoza, which is saying something, and a knowledgeable sommelier. It is located in an old bodega, which you should tell your cab driver, as the restaurant does not have their name on the... More

You have to make reservations in advance because the place is always very crowded, but believe me, it is totally worth the effort. You can't imagine what you are about to experience. I have had the best meal in my whole life as well as the biggest! We ordered the Coteleta (the whole rib from the cow), served with roasted... More

My first bit of advice would be to make a reservation for 1884 upon arrival in Mendoza. We waited 5 days to get a dinner reservation. Francis Mallman's 1884 was such a great experience. The restaurant itself is not located near the city center like many others. The building is very unique and makes for a very special experience. The... More

A true five star experience. Arriving into an unmarked area with a guard outside checking to see if you are on the list, first impressions are great! The bar area is very quaint and charming and the bartender Matias was super friendly. The outside terrace is breathtaking! Entering the dining room, you feel you are in a special place. The... More

This was a unique experience. You must make reservations and be on the list to enter the compound where the restaurant is. The menu is unique and exquisite. My favorite dish was the grilled squid salad, it was excellent. My husband got the "shrimp in a box" for an appetizer which was very, very good as well. The lamb was... More

One of my top 5 meals anywhere in the world! Great ambiance and service only add to the remarkable food. The salt crusted chicken is unbelievable as is the tournedos! I can't rave enough about how great the food was! Definitely going back here!!

Reading the previous reviews before going, I was wondering if we should find somewhere else. We enjoyed friendly and extremely efficient service, excellent food, I had the Goat Cheese appetizer and a very moist pork chop, whilst the Gazpacho soup and pasta for my wife was Fresh, and very well seasoned. Deserts were terrific. Their extensive wine list, is very... More

The steak here was average and we were expecting excellent. My daughter had the chicken dish which was very good. However the service was less than excellent. My husband never received his appetizer and when we ordered our dessert wine it came after we were done with a dessert that we shared. We waited at least fifteen minutes for a... More

We went back & forth about going here since people have had such a mixed experience but decided when in Rome, to go. We decided not to sit on the patio since it was so crowded but sat inside in a lovely room and had a GREAT time. The wait staff and the sommelier were helpful and prompt. We went... More

Sunday night dinner in the courtyard under a clear sky was truly superb! We could see the clay oven, barbecue and interior bread table and kitchen where our food was prepared to near perfection in both taste and appearance, including goat and 7 hour lamb with wine pairings recommended by our sommelier. We needed a taxi from the city centre.
