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.

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!

Been here several time in past year, most recently a few weeks back - good choice of food, especially as I have a young family - Milanesas & Papa Fritas is simple but effective - I always go for something on the seafood menu and never disappointed and my wife manages to find something for her vegertarian palate!
