I was travelling to Mendoza with five girlfriends and arrived late in Mendoza due to flight delays. We asked our guide for a recommendation for dinner, and he did not hesitate and told us we had to go to Azafran. We are so glad we followed his advice. It is a great little restaurant in the heart of Mendoza. The decor and atmosphere is really nice. We were seated in the wine cellar and even provided with blankets to use if we were cold, due to the temperature being kept cool for the wine. The menu was very interesting with the traditional Argentinean empanadas and beef as well as pastas and fish. One of the girls in my party still says that the steak she had at Azafran was the best she had in all of Argentina, and we ate a lot of meat. The wine list (or cellar- you choose your wine directly from the cellar) was extensive and covered all price ranges. The staff were attentive and friendly. I would definitely recommend Azafran as a must restaurant on any visit to Mendoza.

After a marathon of asados, empanadas and all sort of meat and cheese, it was quite refreshing to have a fantastic salad and a good variety of dishes that could fall more into the international flair. Centrally located, with a very nice atmosphere, a fantastic wine cellar that gives you option for choosing a good local wine within a wide range of prices and grapes. The staff is accommodating and I had a great experience being leaded by the sommelier. The menu was creative, keeping the Argentinian touch.

In a city that is known for great steak and fabulous wine it is hard to pick where to go. Well let me help, this place! Very good food and wine. The pairing is the way to go. It has traditional Argentinian food like empanadas and steak but with a slightly more gourmet touch. Right in the center of downtown, it is easy to get to and has a shelf there with some very nice pantry items jams, olive oil, rubs, chocolates that you can purchase.

A charming little place with interesting tasting room and also sell delicacies. The charcuterie is the best option. The other side plates are ok too. We brought our wine from the bodegas we visited earlier in the day and they charged 50 pesos to uncork. Siri outside but guard your purse.
