We were driving in Valle de uco, starving and couldn't find anything open for late lunch...Posada del jamon was a good alternative but we waited for 1.5 hrs. The food was OK but definitely not worth the wait. The place was nice but again, nothing out of the ordinary. Very family oriented.

Located about 15 minutes west from Tunuyan, the Posada has been a favorite of locals (and us) for numerous years. As the name suggests, its all about pork in all its various formats. Portions are ideal for sharing so get several and enjoy them all. Decent wine menu from local producers. Its not fancy but very good!

This restaurant is a rustic place in the town. Pork is offered in every way imaginable. Frankly, we over did it... I had to lie down for a few hours afterwards. My fault, not theirs!

We are staying at the Vines during our Mendoza visit and chose to venture out for lunch. It's a charming little place + if you ❤️ pig in all its glory this is for you (there are also two vegetarian options). Quaint restaurant, quite large, indoor seating, friendly staff (Lucas was fantastic). We had some lovely Siesta Cab Fran (thanks... More

Posada del Jamon is a lovely family run restaurant and hotel (cabañas) near Vista Flores in the Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina. I have been there more than once and I cannot stress too much how lovely the family who runs it makes us feel at home! The cabañas are humble but decent wireless service is provided.

As the name says...the house of pork. Quite nice place. The inclosed front porch was a delight overlooking the garden. The food was a real treat. Have not seen so many kinds of ham since I was in Madrid. They were all excellent. Sausage, Ribs, a real variety of pork. A bottle of M. Rolland Malbec from his owned property... More

Recommended by our hotel as a typical Argentine experience, La Posada Del Jamon did not let us down. This is a popular restaurant frequented by locals and is dedicated to all things pork. They breed their own pigs and serve it in every way possible. I think we were the only tourists in there for lunch but the staff looked... More

We just had a snack there (salad and chorizos) which was really good. Outside they had a kids play area and animals to look at (peacocks, rabbits, chickens) which was so exciting for our one-year-old. Also lots of green to run and play. Cool location for a relaxed meal for the parents ;)

My wife remembers going to La Posada del Jamon as a youngster. This is a great family place. The food is very good and the atmosphere is raucous and fun. It's a great place to eat after a beautiful drive in the Uco Valley.
