Mendoza Province is every wine aficionado’s dream: rolling vineyards doling out samples of world-class vino for visitors amidst a backdrop of stunning mountains. The food scene is just as good: read on for our guide to the best restaurants in Mendoza Province.
Celebrity chef Francis Mallmann’s Valle de Uco restaurant at The Vines Resort and Spa takes asado to new heights, grilling meat, fruit and vegetables, and fish seven ways. The fixed-price lunch menu is a one of a kind experience, especially when paired with boutique wines.
High-quality produce is the name of the game at this high-end restaurant in Mendoza city. The walls are lined with shelves containing rare craft beers as well as a refrigerator of cured meats. For a unique dining experience, ask to be seated in the wine cellar, which features a single table— the staff will happily provide ponchos to combat the chill.
La Posada del Jamon
The original pioneer of restaurants in the now-booming Uco Valley, La Posada de Jamon has an unpretentious atmosphere and delicious food. The tasty home-cured ham features in many of the dishes on the menu.

French country cooking is an unlikely partner for Argentinian asado, but Finca Blousson does it impeccably, marrying the two countries’ flavors to create a cuisine all of its own. Case in point: bife de chorizo, topped with cassis sauce, which proves to be a delicious combination. Now that’s diplomacy.
