Lovely evening with friends!

We enjoyed a great night with friends. Food was excellent especially the empanadas. Good thing we had reservations as the place was packed. Local dogs like to hang around as they know where to go for good food.

I had the Uruguyan salad, and it was fresh and crisp with a great maple vinagrette. My boyfriend's steak was delicious, as was our empanada appetizer. The best part, though--there was a line the whole time we were in there, but my boyfriend and I wanted to stay and soak up the atmosphere. After paying, tipping, and finishing our wine,... More

You WON'T find Al Chimichurri on the front of the building. it goes by Parrilla Uruguaya. This spot is not for everyone. Uruguaya has an inside dining area but we like the action on the street. The restaurant has a number of tables set up just off the curb and out into the action. From this vantage point the more... More

All I can say, it's if you just arrive in Puerto Morellos, make a reservation now, I try the Filet mignon, amazing. The place is really busy, so be patient, but the waitress was nice.

Eat here! Grab a table on the street and you will feel the buzz of this town. I had a steak. My sons had pizza and pasta. All delicious. Start with the empanadas. Wow!

We had fun at Al Chimichurri. We tried steaks, sausages and pasta. I had no idea how big the steaks would be - I'd suggest sharing the rib eye, for example. The salads and empanadas were also tasty (I loved the mushroom empanada). And, I know I probably shouldn't have encouraged them, but I couldn't resist feeding the dogs... smart... More

We thought that since it was always busy that the food and service would be excellent. We were disappointed in that the service was not great, the waiter never came back to offer more drinks or dessert. Once he served us, we were ignored thereafter. We did make a reservation as there always seemed to be a lineup. The food... More
