Francis Mallman 1884, Mendoza review - Beautiful restaurant but average meal

Sophiasolange | May 17, 2012 02:02 PM

First off, you need a driver and a reservation for this place - it is pretty difficult to find and once there you have to be let in by the staff which lends to the overall exclusive feel. We were led to a central courtyard for a pre-dinner drink which was really lovely - you could see the chefs cooking all the meat outdoors on a traditional outdoor grill. After our drinks we opted to have dinner indoors. I can't stress enough how lovely this place is but sadly for me the food did not live up to all the hype. As it often the case with places like this, one tends to expect too much. Don't get me wrong this was not a bad meal by any standard, in fact my roasted pumpkin appetizer was one the best I've had but my main of baby goat was a disappointment - very little meat and a bit tough, the one I had a Terruno was far superior.

I would still recommend this restaurant to those visiting Mendoza - it's a great place to say you've visited once. The atmosphere and the overall pace of the dinner made for a very enjoyable evening.
