Classic tea place, sluggish lunch experience

This place is in an incredible location - the top of a hill overlooking Laguna del Sauce, the Punta del Este airport, the sea etc. Over many years it has become a classic place to have tea and enjoy the sights. We went there last year at tea time and had a wonderful time all around. This year we... read more

Visiting good friends in Punta who took us to this fabulous restaurant. The setting is superb with almost 360 degree views of water and the surrounding area. When you have this type of setting you don't always get great food but this time the entire package was wonderful. From wine to food to service everything was top notch and we... More

Usually this is an amazing place. Very unique property with amazing views. This time the wait staff just couldn't seem to get anything right and everything took agonizingly long amounts of time. As I usually love this place, I will return, but a repeat would make me take my business elsewhere

We took the drive up the windy mountain to experience tea time and the sunset views from Las Cumbres. The experience was phenomenal and well worth our time. The setting is shabby chic, very elegant and yet comfortable and casual at the same time. The food was very good and service exceptional...however our favorite thing...the view, it was breathtaking of... More

I showed up at Las Cumbres without a dinner reservation, only to find out that they were closed that evening for a huge wedding party. The staff were incredibly accommodating and found a place to set up a table for me. My meal was excellent, I'm sure it was the same as what the wedding guests had! This place is... More

I went there for a tea and enjoy the panoramic view on both the laguna and the sea, which is the case. The view is amazing. The service was very kind and professional but the food was average. The tea itself was great, especially the herbal tea. But the pastries and salt meals came all togother so the salt meals... More

The restaurant belongs to the hotel of the same name, one of Uruguay's best-kept secrets. The food is very good and served in an attractive way. The service is usually very good. The place is nice in a shabby-chic way. But what really makes the place is the breath-taking view. That alone is well-worth the visit and the (rather costly)... More

Located on top of a hill by the seaside, this restaurant (part of a five star hotel by the same name) offers spectacular 360 degree view of the ocean, hills and countryside around it. Coincidentally the food as good as the view. They wont let you in without a reservation, so call to book in advance.
