We went to Boca Chica late on a week night for a bite to eat, and a beer. It`s on the Punta beachfront close to the marina - look for the anchors as per the photo and it`s close by. Although the beach-side tables are reserved for diners, a space was made for us by the helpful staff. Boca... read more

Very well located, friendly staff, fresh food for an adequate price for Punta del Este standards in the summer. Can recommend. Not luxury or gourmet food, no attention to details and personalized service, a bit noisy, but again, amazing location and good casual food

Staff is quite professional, and ready to help. Food is OK, especially the salads. The bread basket is normal. There are tables on the front, and they can be used even in winter, in sunny days.

The food and service are ok, nothing spectacular but it has an impressive view. It is better for lunch than dinner.

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...

The place offers excellent beef, and delicius salads. Staff is very professional. The restrooms are perfect. Perhaps the choice if music could be more midatlantic.
