When you find it you love it.

Hard to find one the streets one km up from the beach is this lovely place. Superb pizzas, but the todays specials is always excellent. The garden is super cosy and inside the big oven is producing food and heat. Some mosquitos outdoor but still worth a bite.

Totally cool and enchanting spot tucked away in a funky residential area near Jose Ignacio. Atmosphere, food and service all superior! A must when in the area!

This place has some fantastic food and the ambience is cool Punta. Hard but fun to discover, groovy cabin with a lovely garden. And outstandingly fresh local food. The thing is there is a weird vibe from the management , some wait staff ( not all) . I went 4 times this season and twice my bill was tampered with....... More

This is practically a hidden restaurant located in the area of El Chorro, around 25km away from the center of Punta del Este. First important tip: you only get there by car. If you use waze, type "elmo resto bar" and you will find it but do not follow GPS, waze or google maps instructions. They will be wrong. I... More

Everything is perfect. I've travelled all around the globe and experienced all kind of restaurants . If you go to Elmo and don't rate it 5 ***** it's because of you not feeling weĺl and not because of them. Thanks again Elmo, hooping you can keep the exellent level you have shown .

secret hideaway, both my husband and I had the best veggie ravioli ever. Managed to take care of 32 or so of us for a wedding party some from Argentine and some American. Not one person had a bad meal. Neat little place and would return in an instant if I can remember how to get there>>>>>

Every year it gets better, growing not only in size but also in sophistication. And while the menu continues to improve and become more elaborate, the atmosphere and decoration have preserved (and even enhanced) its laid back and relaxed character. I still love to order my two favorites, its brick oven pizza and passion fruit caipiroska. The dulce de leche... More

This is one of those places thats something like a secret, that you don't want it to became too famous to be spoiled. We suppose that just now, so many time had passed since it's opened that it's now fair to make this kind of review. :=) It's almost impossible to find by yourself, or maybe just absolutely imposible.

My boyfriend and I wet there for dinner. We had a reservation. When we arrived they set us at a table in a dark little corner, with no ventilation except for a small electric fan that didn't move, so they had to chose which table the fan would point towards. In the beginning it was us.... The only light in... More
