Please, runaway from this place, all staff are very rude, they do not have any instruction or even education, the waiters are completely lost, the place is very hot, the food does not worth the price. We came to see the lovely Montevideo, and we...More

While the waiters are really friendly and fast to serve there are better options to have lunch. Restaurant is gloomy and dark even if you sit by the terrace. The biggest downside is that every single protein is sold by itself and sides are sold...More

Excellent location. Dull food, meat was very dry even if asked for medium rare. We've paid for a cut of picanha, but we received something else. Just avoid it.

For about 1000 pesos they served me a huge piece of meat covered in pepper sauce, accompanied by some cream potatoes and a bottle of water. The meat was not nearly the quality I had hoped and as there were no vegetables this was a...More

Great located restaurant at the intersection of the pedestrian malls in the old city, this should have been a fantastic place for a bbq lunch. However, the steaks were so tough as to be inedible and horribly expensive. I left more than three quarters of...More

The food at this restaurant is perfectly OK, but whereas it won't make your mouth water necessarily, the prices will make your eyes water for sure. A mixed grill, a mixed salad (which was just shredded lettuce, four slices of tomato and some raw onion)...More

We almost didn't go...I'd have never forgiven myself if we hadn't. The best beef tenderloin I've ever eaten. A seafood paella that had a spiciness that would not be expected in Uruguay and 2 deserts that can't be missed! Pears in Tannat w/ cinnamon ice...More
