Nice ambient with great food

The place is beautiful, very good service, great food and the wine can be picked up directly from the cellar. Price is a bit expensive for Argentina, we paid USD120 for 2 persons with 1 bottle of medium price wine.

Business supper with some colleagues. We dined in their cellar and we wore ponchos, which, with the rest of the place (decoration + architecture), conspired to a great ambience. The food is very well served and we barely ate our "bife de lomos". It really was a lot of meat. Very good service and good wine selection, as well.

I've eaten at Azafran twice. The food is great and it's a lot of fun, both on the sidewalk and even more so, in the wine room. They have an excellent wine selection and very good food options. As with any restaurant in Mendoza, make sure you have a reservation...

We had a great lunch and went for their fixed price lunch special. No wine list! But better than a wine list, you get to go into the cellar and browse the options which are nicely arranged by varietal and price level. The sommelier helps to find a nice bottle to fit your needs. Strongly recommended.

A little disappointing, because it was too expensive for the meal we received and we had to wait a lot

Glad we found this place as we walked in the neighborhood. Very good service and helpful sommelier. The food was delicious. The wine "cellar" was well stocked with a good selection & the sommelier was knowledgeable. The empanadas were filled with hand cut beef not just ground and were delicious. The saffron ravioli and beef in pastry were good mains.... More

But this is a must-do for eating in Mendoza. Ask to sit in the wine cellar! And have the provoleta as a starter...grilled provolone with olive oil & herbs. Naturally your steak will be world-class as well. Don't miss this one.
