Good service and good quality

We had lunch at 1pm - early for PdE - and got the undivided attention of our waitress. Everything we ordered was done according to our expectations. The prices were normal for this city, with the exception of a green salad, valued at 15 USD. I can reccomend it.

The atmosphere was nice, but service was poor and so was the food. Nothing came at the same time. And 2 of the plates was totally forgotten.. They ate 30 min later than the rest.. The meat can't compare with the 2 other places next door. So all in all , cant understand many of the reviews..

What makes this place special? The people that own it and work in it, the food, the unusual set up and the way they prepare their food you love and care. Everything is real, prices are moderate for what Punta is concerned and they always have a smile and a great dish to serve.

We wanted to try a steak house in Uruguay, so we decided to try this place with very good reviews in Tripadvisor. The waitress was very nice and the bread bowl was yummy. However, the steak was just average, nothing special. The service was really slow, the order came after an hour later. The prices are expensive, and you cannot... More

The ambience was pleasant. They tried to seat me by the door and, a little grudgingly, let me sit a bit further in. I was quite early so the waiter was initially attentive. I have to say that the bread bowl was delicious. I ordered a caprese salad, which was fine Then I let the waiter talk me into asado,... More

The food was wonderful, every bite as good as it upscale restaurant in Italy. The ambience was similar to a neighborhood restaurant in uptown New Orleans, but with live Latin music instead of Jazz. Anyone who does not thoroughly enjoy this place has the wrong priorities.

We walked past this unassuming grill one night and came back the following evening, having been tempted by the great atmosphere and music! The food did not disappoint. Excellently prepared on a massive grill. Great side dishes too...the home made chips and roasted veg must be tried! Very laid back and helpful staff too.

This was my second time here. First time was excellent. The fish sturgeon was incredible. But this time it was not available. We switch for Salmon. Cold on arrival. The rest of meals were average. The asado was at best regular. Service is very good. Expensive for the experience. They need to get it better. No credit cards

If you're looking for a place to eat in Punta del Este -look no further ! This place has a cozy vibe, english-speaking and extremely hands-on staff and a quiet atmosphere. Me and two other friends ordered the shared platter for two and it was plenty of food. For side dishes we had the sweet potato mixed mouse + their... More

Very nice place, laid back comfortable, very relaxed. Svc is great, very friendly and relatively quick. We ordered asado and it was great!! I´m not giving 5 stars, because I find it to be a bit expensive. But otherwise a very good experience!!
