Still on top of its game, the province's most famous restaurant promises good service, handsome surroundings, and tasty fare that you might recognize from Francis Mallmann's many cookbooks. The master of fire, Mallmann focuses on grilled meats and fish; a host of Patagonian dishes and succulent salads (including a delicious salt-baked pear with burrata cheese) are served as well. The restaurant, located in Godoy Cruz, takes understandable pride in its wine list: choose
something from the historic Escorihuela and Caro wineries next door or let the friendly sommelier lead you through the 500-plus choices. If you are booking in the summer, try to reserve a table in the pretty garden.
