We had a late lunch around 4 pm at this restaurant that we found on the internet. Nice location right on the beach, but in my opinion they have to many tables.

A busy vibey restaurant on the beach. Great seafood and a great atmosphere. Had we stayed in Jose Ignacio longer we would definitely have eaten there again. Very popular in season so book ahead of time. Web bookings available.

Nice location, friendly service, very expensive. The place is good for what Punta del Este is good for. to show off. The place and the location is amazing, the service friendly but everything is very expensive. It´s a high society place.. Reservation needed!

Good food, good wine list. The sushi is really great and worth a try. It is vibey and on the beach. Nice views if you get a table by the window.

Terrible service in one line. Staff not properly trained in customer service. No attention to the customer, more attention to themselves.

Food quality was really good and I really loved the drinks they offer. It's quite packed and pricy but really nice to visit and service is excellent. We had a last minute family problem and they had no problem in rescheduling our reservation for the next day. (Make a reservation if you don't want to wait forever)

It was the first time I went there at night (I had been previously for lunch). Everything was perfect from food, drinks, and service. One recommendation would be to update the menu since for the past years it's been the same and it would be fun to have updates.
