We ate several times at the location in central Punta and found the service to be excellent and the food to be delicious. The green salad is just that - greens. A tasty variety of lettuces, arugula, even a touch of mint. When in the mood for a light meal it is perfect.

The location at the southern end of town is a formal proper restaurant but there's also an "express" location in central Punta. I dined at both and enjoyed both. The larger location is beautifully situated with an ocean view and the food (great mussels!) was excellent. The smaller location was a convenient spot and the food, although less varied, was... More

It was very good service, awesome food. We were at the Boca Chica at Pedragossa Sierra str. I guess there less people than in the city center.

On the tip of the peninsula, with a great view to the sea, Boca Chica is a modern and pleasant space to go for dinner. Food is not an "A" grade, but the variety matches all tastes. Try the Clericot and the sweets.

We had a family dinner outdoors. The sunset and the views were outstanding! Service was great and the food was very pleasant. Great wine list as well.

What a lovely restaurant, great location near a marina and port. The atmosphere was electrifying buzzing with laughter, and just great fun. The waiter was attentive without being overbearing. The interior was beautiful with a lovely wine cava. I had a lovely fish( akin to a tilapia) as my other companions. But not to be missed is the FANTASTIC Tiramisu,... More

I was in Boca Chica during a cruise trip to Punta del Este. What I liked most about this place was the nice atmosphere, very relaxing, specially in the tables outside. You can just sit and linger over a cup of coffe, drink a glass of wine or even have lunch or diner while you watch the beautiful people of... More
