Ate here last night with my husband - it's easy to find on a street that is very busy with other outdoor cafes and restaurants. The decor is very nice - well designed but not pretentious and a little whimsical with colorful touches here and there. The service was excellent - the staff was extremely friendly and attentive, and very... More

It was recommended that we dine at this restaurant and we are so glad we took the short taxi ride there from the Sheraton. We made a reservation just an hour before we got there and sat inside. You'll want to be inside as that's where you get the ambience and great experience. We went into the unique Wine room... More

We had a late lunch (5pm), as dinners in Mendoza start at 9 or 10, and we couldn't wait that long. The restaurant offered a 4 course lunch with wine pairing for less than $30. It was a great meal, including chorizo empanadas, steak or chicken, and a tasty dessert bite. The malbec was very good, and we even got... More

I recently went back to Azafran to celebrate my birthday. It had been nearly 10 months since my last visit, and the menu had changed - but not in a bad way. This restaurant never disappoints in food or the selection of wines that they offer. Our group started off with a few appetizers, and the trio of empanadas was... More

Outstanding food and wine list with expert and friendly service. I had such an excellent visit that I returned for a second dinner two nights after my first night. Menu has a selection of fine Argentine produce and the best fun of the whole experience was picking a wine from the very extensive selection available in the wine room assisted... More

Went with my wife there. I had a pork shoulder steak, very well executed, the side was my problem. A sort of corn flan wrap in zucchini. The service was another issue. Next to me was a lady, with total disregard for social conventions. She was smoking while others were eating. I expressed my dissatisfaction to the waiter, and asked... More

My husband and my son ordered the beef. I ordered ceviche as I prefer seafood when we eat out. My husband loved the beef. The waiter spoke English but confused my son's order with mine and he ended up with ceviche too, so his beef came late but was delicious. My ceviche was good but I'm happy with everything. My...

Azafran is a beautiful, centrally located (but not touristy) restaurant in Mendoza. Quality of the food was high. The wine list was even better: they do not have it in fact...you have to walk into a physical cellar (as big a s a room) to pick up your wine... The sommelier is of great help, prepared and very kind. Azafran... More

The best meal we had in Argentina was at Azafran on the popular Sarmiento Avenue.From the outside it looks quite artsy and low key, but inside its uniqueness blooms in 'historical-rural' decor and the place flourishes into a memorable experience.Pleasant young waiting staff speak English (rare in Argentina), the glorious breadbasket offers baked-on-site breads and the sommelier is a lovely...
