I was here a couple of time for breakfast. The waiters were very nice, even one of them helped me explaining me how to get some places. Food was good as well.

Nice service, located in the middle of the city center. Great food and a perfect place for the late snack.

On 18 de Julio right by the Lock Fountain, we had breakfast there twice as a change from the hotel buffet. I was delighted with the waffles with dulce de leche, and their coffee is superb.It was great to try a place where mostly locals were enjoying breakfast.

We come here for breakfast, while not on the menu, you can order fried eggs and bacon. Their coffee is really good. The outside seating along 18 de Julio is a great place to people watch while eating, and is covered from the sun or rain.

Food is fine, good price. Quick and excellent attention. We had an early lunch on a Sunday, so most of people was still having breakfast and they were not many clients. Bathrooms could be better.

My friend and I went to Facal restaurant twice during our stay in Montevideo. The coffees are great, but the food is not the best. Average prices.

Service started off somewhat cold but warmed up a bit. Atmosphere was ok, but it appeared slightly dirty. Napkin holders were coated with food stains and... More

I've stayed for two weeks at a hotel across the street from Bar Facal. It was very convenient to go there for lunch or dinner.
