Good food, nice place

The food was very tasty and the service was good. It is a little pricy, but then again... as everything else in Punta! Located in the Peninsula area.

We were a table of four and had no reservations, but we were early so had no difficulty in getting a table. In fact, our table was right by the window and this gave us the opportunity to see a wonderful sunset over the ocean. We all ordered fish and each of us was pleased with the choice. This is... More

Went there for dinner in Feb on a Monday night and the restaurant was quite empty as it was out of season. It is a very nice restaurant I enjoyed the style and I imagine in high season it would be buzzing. There was the typical argentine grill for the meat and the chef was more than happy to show...

Very good food, beautiful place, very good service, very nice view of Punta Del Este port. I've been here few times, and it's always perfect.

We decided to try Boca Chica by accident, we were going to Yacht Club Restaurant, and, how it was empty, we decided to try another restaurant nearby, when we saw this one. We asked for a table and almost instantaneously were seated. I decided for a Lomo con Mostaza (Filet with mustard) with french fries, the fries were good but... More

My husband and I go to Punta del Este every winter, when it is summer there. We always dine at least once at Boca Chica, and have dined there with friends on many occasions. We invariably choose the brótola, freshly fished from the nearby Atlantic, with a side of puré de calabaza. The wine list is impressive and the desserts... More

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...

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.
