Gorgeous space, good food

Beautiful inside and out. Great vibe (absolutely packed in peak season) and very pleasant staff. Somewhat smaller menu but delicious. Just wish my dish wasn't so ginger heavy. Pasta is perfectly al dente.

The place is very nice, we'll decorated, good service, excellent food quality. We ordered their special lamb leg with potatoes and a rucula and prosciutto pizza. Both were perfect. This accompanied by a very smoth glass of argentine Malbec. For dessert a typical Tiramisu which was superb, and homemade pistachio ice cream. And couldn't finish without the espresso coffee of...

This restaurant is magical, with excellent food, charming ambiance, impeccable service in a beautiful setting, We walked through the garden, to arrive inside the restaurant with the exquisite floor made of tiles embossed with flowers and leaves. The walls are filled with colorful paintings collected by the owners. We sat facing a gorgeous tree adorned with orchards, and were immediately... More

If you want somewhere beautiful and delicious to have dinner then try L'Incanto. It's a great place and run by Luciano and Betty and their crew. We go here every year and are never disappointed. Make sure you try the pizza's and home made pastas. You won't be disappointed.

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel. The building is quite modern and open with lots of care taken with beautiful plants all around. The portions were rather small but tasty. The owner made a huge effort to ensure we are happy and understand the menu. The service overall was great. We would love to go back.

We were a party of 12, with four 11 year olds, so not an easy crowd to please. We had a good time at the restaurant, pretty good food, and a nice wine list with decent prices. Just be aware of communication glitches when ordering meat in Uruguay, in general: if you like a juicy steak, make sure to ask... More
