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.

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

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

We own a house up r.uta 12, and we visit UY twice a year. We have eaten several times at Lo de Tere (see review). ANd at several other restaurants, of course.

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.
