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.

We enjoyed this beach sytle restaurant. The service was very good and the food was also very good. There is a Freddo ice cream shop there as well that is a bonus. A must if staying in this area.

Food was good. Good place to go with family as kids can go outside on a very quiet place and you can still have a look at them. It's probably a bit pricy to the location and overall restaurant infra and food

You feel welcome all the time. Several vegetarian options . The best "Patatas Bravas" I can remember. Delicious parmigiana eggplant. Excellent glass of red wine "the end of the world " The homemade Herbal liqueur is something to remember and come back ! My husband ate a delicious lamb. Reasonable prices. Welcoming atmosphere. Definitely a place to return .

My husband and I came here on our honeymoon for dinner one night. It was so good, we went back for lunch another day. They had our "new favorite" wine from a local vineyard, Alto de la Ballena. We especially liked the seafood and pastas.

Last night we attended one of the shows they play during the summer. It was well attended and the music was very nice. I attended with my daughter and husband and we all enjoyed the music and the table service. We ordered Tabla de quesos and some white vino. We also ordered a medio y medio a typical Uruguayan drink... More
