I had heard about La Huella several months prior by watching Anthony Bourdain. His descriptions looked intriguing, being right on the beach and all, so I made a reservation before leaving the US on my Uruguayan adventure. This place was even better than I had...More

Our guide dropped us about 3:00 on a Saturday afternoon after our wine tour. I had been advised to book a reservation as the oceanside restaurant is quite busy. Glad I did, as there was a line out the door, even as it was off-season....More

I find La Huella to be a complete mystery to me, people would speak about it as some mesmerizing event in which the food would give you ecstasies. Well, I only found a regular to sub-par food; but I must give credit were it’s due:...More

Hi weekends are always open. However since they work most during summer time, I would give them a call first. The walk on the beach is amazing all year around. ;-))))
