El Mercadito: Friendly & Fresh

City of Mendoza

Overview

A fresh, friendly bistro on Avenida Aristedes Villaneuva. This little back garden restaurant is a welcome respite from the to-be-seen scene on Aristedes. Prepare to pucker from the lemonade, check out the unusally good salads and be surprised by the burgers. Some have even suggested that the bife de chorizo is one of the best in the city, though we still believe that's to be found at Don Mario. Decide for yourself. If you're looking for a break from Mendoza's unforgettable steaks and big Malbecs, this is a great choice. You won't go wrong with a cold bottle of Rose and a light dinner here on one of Mendoza's sultry evenings.
