My wife and I had the opportunity to dine at Azafran, thanks to our wine tour company (Uncorking Argentina), which highly recommended the restaurant. We loved our meal! Especially the meat!!! We cant wait to enjoy another meal made by the Chef!

This is a lovely place, with friendly service, nice atmosphere, and creative menu. I feel bad giving it a less than good review, as it was highly recommended and I was only here once, but my meal was just off this night - I had a chicken breast, caked in a thick panko shell and half-cooked. Poultry can be tricky,... More

Dear SantoGabacho we are sorry to hear about your experience. We invite you to change your mind about the restaurant as we are reforming it and also our menu. Thanks for your opinion. Everything our costumers said about Azafrán is an impulse to do it better. More

This restaurant will always be a good choice for recommendations or going with friends. The service I have experienced is always friendly and professional - for Mendoza city it's actually the place with the best service. The food and menu options are good but their key competence is the wine cellar and the sommelier who can show you some new... More

I went to Azafran for a birthday lunch. They waiter heard it was my birthday and offered any dessert on the menu, however, the dessert on the fixed menu sounded so good we kept that one. The food for the fixed menu was extremely delicious, perhaps the best empanadas I ever had, and I lived in Argentina for six months.... More

We visited Azafran twice during our stay in Mendoza, once for dinner and once for lunch. We arrived very late and hungry in Mendoza and our hotel receptionist recommended Azafran. We were not disappointed! We started with empanadas for entree and for dinner I had the chicken and my husband had the fish. We both really enjoyed the empanadas and... More

We had dinner at aZafran our first night in Mendoza. An easy walk from our hotel, we ate at a table on the street and enjoyed the traditional parrilla dinner. Great wine selections--both red and white. The dinner was excellent with good service. There were tables in side beside a large wine room. They also have some items on sale... More

We were drawn to this restaurant because it was in the neighborhood of our hotel, written up in Lonely Planet and also mentioned by some people we met at dinner the night before. It does have a rustic-chic decor and we were initially quite pleased, but as the evening progressed, our initial good vibes waned. The meal started out with... More

We popped in for lunch & had a most wonderful meal. Breads were warm & fresh. We had a pork roast lunch with mashed potatoes & salad in a lovely presentation. The roast was fork tender (a relief after all those parrilladas), the appetizer of beet & watercress was so inventive and good tasting. Little side table for our wine... More

This restaurant is very popular, has great food, and its own sommelier who will give you a lengthy consultation about which wine goes with which food! It's very classy -- one of the nicest in town.

What a fantastic restaurant. The service was exceptional. The cellar of wine fantastico. The food outstanding. Do not hesitate to go, but do book ahead of time. Price was reasonable.
