Description: Entrar en Medio y Medio supone una experiencia singular. Parece uno adentrarse en los sabores y aromas de una cantina madrileña, o de una fonda parisina, con la banda sonora de un club de jazz neoyoquino, o un reducto de gafieira carioca. Medio y Medio es cocina de autor, fresca y casera. Es música en formato de Festival extendido en el tiempo. Un negocio de familia bajo la batuta de la chef Graciela Ferreres y la dirección artística de Leandro Quiroga Ferreres.Entre los artistas que han pasado por sus escenarios se podrán encontrar una gran diversidad de artistas como: Jaime Roos, Luis Alberto Spinetta, Hermeto Pascoal, Luis Salinas, Joao Bosco, Fito Páez, Skay Beilinson, Leny Andrade, Cuarteto de Nos, Liliana Herrero, Chico Cesar, Fabiana Cantilo, Fernando Cabrera, Paulinho Moska, entre tantos otros.

The venue has the air of a rambling beach house... More

The local fish, brotola, is my world-wide favorite, and grilled parmesan brotola is too die for. The raviolis in mushroom sauce are excellent. For desert I recommend the mousse de maracuja (passion fruit) and you cannot go wrong with a local Don Pascual wine. The stuff is young and friendly, during the high season (January/February) reservations are recommended. I´ve been... More

A few are closed down permantently by lack of Argentinian, which is a pity. And then we discovered Medio y Medio. Which is not in Punta del Este,... More

Really delicious sole, also squid. Suggest you try the local grilled cheese - Provolone. The house wine is good value. The location near the beach is both attractive and convenient.

Medio y Medio is open during the winter and it's a very good option in Punta Ballena. Very good food, recommend the salmon ravioli.

We are staying nearby at the house of a friend. Medio y medio was recommended and boy, was it worth it! We had no reservation, we stumble through Spanish with the help of Itranslate on iPhone but everyone was friendly and appreciated our efforts. I had homemade ravioli with ham, cheese and mushroom sauce; hubby had beef Bourginon. A bottle... More

This restaurant offers good food. Their fresh fish and sea food can be counted on. The others in our group were happy with their selections ranging from fish, meat and pasta. Pat C Canada

If you are on the road from Monbtevideo to Punta or back to Montevideo just stop in Portezuelo and have lunch in Medio y Medio. The fish is superbe and also the seafood is wonderful. The service is good and the price better. Paying with Mastercard you get 15 % off in the moment!
