Charming venue

My starter was an absolute joy - carpaccio of beef with a sliced strawberry was a very original concept and a perfect food match. The main course was very acceptable. Charming staff and a lovely quaint setting, really very hard to find fault with this establishment. Recommended.

Eating out is not cheap and one`s choices keep narrowing down as standards are not always kept. Many establishment lay more emphasis on state of the art decor and then disappoint where the food is concerned. Others let you down as to their service: either too detached or simply slack and uninterested. The places where you can actually relax, have... More

We visited Maldonado for our New year's Eve dinner, on 31 December, 2014. Everything about the experience was excellent - service, food and atmosphere. Would definitely have dinner there again. Loved walking downstairs to the "basement space"!

Absolutely excellent meals, served with friendly hospitality and some generosity. And for this quality of food very good value. We all had different meals and none of them disappointed. Bruschetta starters especially good.
