Good meals & cool ambiance

The food was pretty good, but atmosphere of sitting on a decadent terrace exceeded everything! Service was also excellent.

We ordered pizza for starter. It was very good. Then we ordered pasta, meat and vegetarian dish. All very poor. The pasta was cold/frozen inside. Meat tasteless. And veggies (as usual). Stick to the pizza. And nice drinks at the bar..

Our waitress was very lovely and warm, we felt very welcome and comfortable during our visit. Great setting and decor, the food was pricey and a little lack lustre. The langostine/gambero provincial was shrimp which looked like it was from a tin, in a tomato and garlic sauce, the garlic also tasted as though it was from a jar. The... More

My wife and I were lucky enough to be able to eat here last week during the weeks leading up to Punta del Este's busy season, when not a lot of other places are open. The wine selection was on par with other restaurants in the area. The variety of pasta and sauces preparations was impressive, almost to good to... More

They charge 5 USD pp cover for the privilege of ordering a 16 USD pizza with mushrooms that comes from a can. If that is what you are looking for, this place is for you. Please keep it, I don't want it.

We had an enjoyable lunch here, sitting outside on a warm March afternoon. I had a sort of deconstructed Hamburger with excellent bread and an interesting platter of Uruguayan cheese. Friendly service.

We looked for a place to have lunch, it was not a big choice in this district so we stopped at Il Baretto. The service was moderate, the waiter spoked English well but her advises were not very helpful (the local vine she advised was far not good), she never filled up our glasses during a meal. We took fish... More
