Francis Mallmann is perhaps the nearest Argentina (and Uruguay, he has dual nationality) comes to a celebrity chef. His outstanding restaurant, which would win prestigious stars in Europe, is housed in the equally fabulous Escorihuela winery, where you can gawp at the province's biggest wine barrel, a monster made in Nancy, France. The kitchen uses the best Argentine meats and local produce, combining hearty Patagonian tradition with exquisite cordon bleu skills. Sucking pig, baby goat and lamb are mainstays, along with Andean trout, plus excellent chicken dishes. Of course you can choose from a mindboggling wine list featuring only the best local vintages. In good weather there are a few tables in delightful garden.
