Where to Lunch on Easter "Pascua" Sunday

Uco Valley

Overview

Easter Sunday, April 20, in Mendoza is an opportunity to really experience a traditional Argentine Sunday, which involves lingering over lunch with family and friends with plenty of food and bottle or two of vino. While Argentines are big on their Sunday parrilla featuring different cuts of beef, during the Easter holiday many Argentines follow a Catholic tradition of abstaining from eating meat on Fridays during Lent and on Easter Sunday. For this reason, most restaurants on Easter Sunday will offer fish, vegetables, and lighter dishes in lieu of the traditional hearty beef dish.

The following restaurants will offer Easter menus. Restaurants may fill up, so be sure to call as soon as you can to reserve your table.

Happy Easter!

¡Felices Pascuas!
