Outstanding food and service

The kitchen opened early just for us. They normally start dinner at 8:00, but we eat much earlier. They seated us 45 minutes before their customary time. Very little English spoken here, but the servers did their utmost to communicate with us. I asked what one word meant, the server... read more

This restaurant has been among the best in Punta del Este for at least 40 years. Most come and go, but Floreal is always there, in its beautiful garden, with impeccable service, lovely tableware, and excellent food. We spend January in PdE every summer and never miss going at least once.

The tables are set with beautiful plates and tableware, it is an exclusive secluded place with the best food. The menu varies and it is not a trendy place but for a glorious dinner at an impeccable place it is ideal.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. Yes, it has nice ambiance and very good service. However, the food falls under the category of "wannabe". The menu has the intention of presenting exquisite dishes, but the delivery is slightly disappointing. This would not have been too bad if it was reasonably priced, but that wasn't the case! The prices are... More

The place is beautiful and the service was very good. However, despite the pretty display of each plate, the food was awful. We ate chicken with a honey/seed concoction that was inedible and hard, as well as a duck plate that was raw and tasteless. We didn't even dare attempt ordering dessert.

This year the food was good,a little greasy for my taste but I will go back for sure. The place is nice the lightening perfection,the service... More

I like this place better than the majority of the restaurants in PUNTA DEL ESTE. The food and service leaves the completion behind...if you want consistent high quality, then this is the place for you. The bread they serve before the meal is delicious. A TASTY TREAT for the palate.

Perhaps it is the best restaurant in Punta del Este but in comparison to the international standards the quality of the food does not justify the prices. It looks more than it is. The ambient and the service are more than average though.
