We had an excellent meal in Azafran. The beef tenderloin with caamelized onions, sweet potato puree and chimichuri sauce was perfectly balanced with Kaiken Ultra Malbec 2010, recomeded by the very knowleadgable somelier. For people who like meat dishes it was a perfect match. My wife had pasta shells stuffed with smoked eggplant and baked in cream sauce, which was very good too. A restaurant with very charming ambience we would always love to go to again, and the tenderloin- Malbec combination that I had was one of those food-wine matches made in heaven.

Been there 5 times. My go to spot if I'm in town alone or eating with a friend. Best bread in Argentina (not saying much), but unless I'm careful I am full before the meal comes. Filet Mignon is amazing also, real find dining. Wine list is more of a wine shop and I love it. You get to walk into the wine room and browse all the bottles and choose whatever you want. Creme brulee with dulce for dessert every time, its to die for. Ambiance inside is also really cool, rustic countryish decor.

While fairly expensive, the food, wine, and service were worth the price. From start to finish we enjoyed an excellent meal, superior presentation, and an extensive wine list (including by the glass).

This restaurant was recommended by people who know food & wine & I'm glad I listened. The service was impeccable. The restaurant is small and a very unique space. There were 4 of us and each of us had something different with each choice cooked to perfection and plated beautifully. Rather than a wine list they ask you to step into their cellar & select a bottle. Definitely worth seeking out if you are in the city.
