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

We stopped by here on our first foray into Punta after arriving in the area. As another contributor mentioned, its hours make it possible for early-eating folks to have a good dinner. Beautiful view of the ocean and sunset, and lots of beautiful people - Brazilians, Argentines, etc. Got crowded for a bit at sunset (9pm on 12/27) but then... More

The Ambience - an elegant very comfortable restaurant with a nice sea-front location and well-spaced tables. Relaxing music. Lighting was too bright however. The Food - Grilled salmon ($23) was ok but a bit dry. Pollo de Santiago ($18) - stuffed baked chicken - was good if not great. Both came with a decent portion of mixed veg - either... More

Pricy but food and service are worth it. Specialty is sea food. Service was excellent indeed, defiitely one of the best restaurants I have visited recently.
