South America’s best-known chef, Francis Mallmann, owns and runs this restaurant. An institution here because of Mallmann's inventive fire-based cooking, the restaurant is regularly cited as the best in Mendoza by top travel publications around the world, from Departures to the New York Times.
Located just outside the city center in Godoy Cruz (10 minutes by taxi), the restaurant is in an old winery, established in the year 1884, and a picture perfect setting for a romantic meal. Tall individual rooms make for regal eating spaces or you can take a table outside in the gorgeous garden, which looks onto the traditional Argentine barbecues and the chefs at work.
The menu has many Argentine inspired dishes, cooked over fire in Francis’ signature Siete Fuegos style, and more than a few are large enough to share. Favorites include lechón (young pork) chivito (baby goat), and an incredible salted chicken that is cooked in a huge outdoor wood stove. And don't pass up an opportunity to have the ojo de bife for two. Starters are a must here as well. Be sure to order provoleta, empanadas, burnt carrots, and pear with burrata cheese. You will definitely want to bring your appetite for this meal.
