Great views & atmosphere + nice food & kind service

The restaurant is located at the seaside with great views to the sailboats approaching the nearby sports harbour. Contemporary decor and just the right lighting make it a really pleasant place to be.

The view is really nice but the food was average, I would not visit this restaurant again or recommend it. My husband liked his plate a lot which was a Shrimp Fondue.

We picked this place for dinner because it has great views of the water and sunset. The food was ok, not amazing. It is a good fish place. The atmosphere was a little stuffy. The calamari was not very good - rubbery and without much flavor. This place was also on the expensive side for what we got. I had... More

Prices too expensive for an average food. The place is nice and the staff as well. I recommend skipping. There are plenty of other better places to go.

We ate dinner here. As they now serve sushi, my wife and I decided to go light and have sushi for dinner. What we didn't known was they only had one sushi chef. Sushi took almost two hours to come out. Ruined an otherwise nice evening. We come to Punta every year and my wife will not go back.

Beautifully located and quite well located, Guappa won't disappoint. Outstanding Chilean Sea Bass, good risotto, drinks one notch below grade. Above-friendly service. In all, a very pleasant experience.

After trying 4-5 restaurants in Punta, Guappa definitely won the competition. Great service, energy, food and atmosphere. Highly recommended

This restaurant recently added sushi and in my view that’s a great match for the place. You see, whoever decorated this locale (the main restaurant, not the street annex) worked hard to get a cold corporate/industrial/glitzy finish (metal, leather, glass, mirrors, cold lighting.) This works great for a metropolitan restaurant or discotheque but to me it feels a tad incongruous... More

Punta del Este is not really the kind of destination we generally seek out –– beautiful beaches are great, but I prefer them with gorgeous natural beauty around them, rather than row upon row of late 20th-century high rise hotels and condos. This restaurant, Guappa, made up for all of the so-so aspects of Punta del Este, and made me... More

We stopped in for an evening of sunset watching in October and found a friendly staff both on the boardwalk and inside. Great service.
