Restaurants in Bariloche / Bodegas in Mendoza

Hi,

I know I've read several posters on both of these subjects, but can't seem to find what I'm looking for now. Sorry to repeat, but I've read about a great restaurant in Bariloche. Great steaks and salds. We're staying at Llao Llao but would like to go out at least one night. I think this particular restaurant had two locations - one better than the other. Any recommended excursions through the Llao Llao? We'll be there three nights. We love the outdoors.

Also, if you had to pick, which three of four bodegas would you visit in Mendoza? I remember reading about one that also had a fabulous lunch. Please let me know. We are staying at the Hyatt in Mendoza. Wish we could have done Cavas but are travelling with children. Sorry for the long poster. Thanks for the help.

I believe the restaurant you are looking for is Boliche de Alberto, with two locations. One specializes in Carne and the other Pasta. The Carne restaurant is superior.

There are three other noteworthy restaurants in the area, each with fanatical supporters....

El Patacon, Los Cesaras, and the most recent addition, 4 Leguas....4 leguas is very near Llao Llao, and serves what is very possibly the best lamb I have ever eaten in my life!

The recreation office at Llao Llao can arrange outings for you...don't overlook the free activities provided at the hotel, but the half day boat excursion on Cau Cau catamaran is a great way to explore the area by water....two stops of about an hour each. We paid the extra 20 pesos for first class, and it was well worth the extra 7 dollars....included were drinks, snacks, and a nice glassed in, uncrowded viewing area....

Enjoy your stay at Llao Llao, the best hotel in South America in my opinion....

About Bodegas in Mendoza--Familia Zuccardi (Q, Santa Julia, among other brands)is a sleek, modern winery with an excellent tasting room and restaurant. La Rural (Rutini, Trumpeter, and others) offers a study in contrast...they do things the old fashioned way...good tasting room and an interesting museum). There are many others, but these two will give you something of an introduction to the old and the new ways of doing things....

Catena Zapata and Achevel Ferrar offer some of the best wines from Mendoza, but I have never toured their wineries....Luigi Bosca is my personal favorite for everyday drinking, but I have never toured their facility either....Lots of options, and hard to go wrong in my opinion...enjoy!

Hi Irjones, drdawggy is correct I believe you are talking about El Boliche de ALberto in Bariloche.. Filet mignon, steaks, all grilled meat are PERFECT, also the french fried (not done like in Mc Donald, but done on the spot in a different way, the right way.) Their filed mignon,consits of three ! filet mignons done to perfection, and the so called petit fillet mignon consits of two instead of three),I wish to explain this so you are not disappointed with the decoration of the place.
It is not decorated like an expensive steak house in the US. No. 1 .,it is not expensive to star with, but it is not flashy.
It is very pleasant, neat and charming but in a way it is a no show off restaurant. Enjoy it.

Thank you both so much. I remembered some of the bodegas from other postings. Thanks for jogging my memory. The restaurant in Bariloche sounds fabulous and exactly what we are looking for. Happy Holidays!

I believe Patria Mía is better than the Boliche de Alberto and I have been to both several times.
