Montes winery opened a new restaurant, Fuegos de Apalta, in March 2017 which is situated just behind the winery among the vineyards. Enclosed in glass, there are views of the vines from every direction.
Owner and restaurateur, Francis Mallmann is an Argentine celebrity chef and author who specializes in Argentine, particularly Patagonian cuisine. He owns restaurants in Mendoza, Buenos Aires, Uruguay and Miami and has been featured on numerous international television programs, as well as on the Netflix original series Chef’s Table.
The menu has a nice mix of starters and entrees (mostly grilled) including ribye and new york strip and fresh fish selections local to the region.
Mallmann’s culinary style of cooking with fire is very obvious once you approach the restaurant and see the large open pit which is a central attraction next to the dining area.
The restaurant is already a success and with only 30 tables, reservations are highly recommended. Open daily for lunch.
Reservations are highly recommended.
