El Garzon is a picturesque Hotel with a charming restaurant in the countryside village of Garzon, just a 45 min drive northeast from Punta del Este. The owner is no other than celebrated Argentine Chef Francis Mallman who owns several restaurants in Argentina and even one in New York. The owner may not always be around but he leaves the reins on the very capable hands of Chef Norbert Piattoni who uses Mallman’s grilling on open fire over infiernillos technique. Roaster fillet mignon, braised rib-eye with roasted vegetables in chimichurri sauce, and wine braised pumpkin and chicken ravioli are examples of delicious offerings.

The dining room at El Garzon is very rustic and gets romantic in the evenings and that most visitors opt to stay in the 5 room rustic country inn. Calling ahead of time to make reservations would be best and remember to bring cash as they do not accept credit card transactions.


Tip how to find the restaurant: On the roundabout just before entering the town, you take the Sains Martinez road towards the Route 9. When you reach the route 9 you cross it remaining on the same road you were going, following our signs to the town of Garzon.
