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.

This Mendoza city eatery has often been described as the best restaurant in the city. Located in an old winery dating back to 1884, this is a perfect spot for date night, especially in good weather: the garden is beautiful and the outdoor tables have a view of the chefs at work.

Finca Blousson

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.
