Not quite as good as I expected

My interest was piqued by previous reviews. The best part was the wine pairing, based upon discussions with the sommelier, and the wines he introduced me to were spot on. From a local Chardonnay to a Malbec dessert wine, very much like port. Delicious. I had a simple meal of a salad, which was... read more

We had heard raves about Azafran so were really looking forward to our evening there. It did not measure up to expectations. The service was spotty at best, with a wine order going completely forgotten until the meal was over, and the food was perfectly ok but not particularly noteworthy. Maybe they were having an off night, but we were... More

Great lunch, excellent value and service. Perfect first meal. The best part is that our lunch started at 4PM, Mendoa style.

My wife booked a table at this place for my birthday. The table we were given was nothing else but amazing. One in the wine cellar, where I could have easily spent the entire afternoon trying to decide what we would have. Simply beautiful and worth asking for it if you ever go. The meal included a lovely salad an... More

Everything we had previously read about this amazing restaurant was true and then some. From the amazing service, to wine recommendations and then the food - just the perfect meal. Others have said this is an expensive restaurant, I could not disagree more. For what you are getting and the amazing ambiance - it is more than worth the cost.

We ate lunch here after a recommendation from a friend. The menu was just ok. 2 of the 3 meals we ordered were average and only the chicken my wife ordered seem to match the prices in this medium-high price establishment. Perhaps their forte is dinner. I would think there are better lunch options but perhaps dinner over a bottle... More

The food is very tasteful, no complaints here. Just try not to get a table near the entrance and/or the entrance of the wine cellar. You get a cold as a lot of people pass by and leave the door open to the wine cellar which is temperature controlled. Staff is very friendly but wouldn't give us another table as... More

Last meal in mendoza and wow was it awesome! So good that I passed out in my taxi to the airport. Ordered the slow cooked pork which melted in my mouth. The apple flavor complemented the pork perfectly. Lastly the restaurant decor has some really cool decor consisting of several antiques most notably was a Muhammed Ali poster.

Very good restaurant in Mendoza! Food is excellent and service is great. Place is simple, but nice. As it is full most of the days, so you must do a reservation in advance. They have a nice adega that you can choose your wine from (a bit pricey) and also have goods options by the glass

Our best meal in Mendoza. Great food, great wine selection and a sommelier to help in your choice -- you go into their wine room to pick your wine. First night we couldn't get in so we made a reservation for the next night.
