It is a small and simple restaurante, but with an extensive menu. The ambient was very good, full of people for dinner, so you need to make reservation. My suggestion was grilled pulp with potatoes. The price was fair

Went there a couple of weeks ago, Friday night. The food was great, very tasty and amazingly abundant. Atmosphere ok, but indeed an expensive place. We were two, order starters, main, desert, and spent 65 usd each, with just one glass of wine. The experience is overall very good, but not quite often...!

Our only mistake was ordering too much food. We got 2 starters and 2 main courses and they were HUGE. We could not finish any of the plates. Definitely worth a visit.

I live in Montevideo and therefore, I can give you my opinion as someone who can compare with all the restaurants in the city. Located in a very nice neighborhood (Punta Carretas), a few blocks from the Sheraton Hotel, is one the best restaurants in Montevideo. The atmosphere is very nice, the service is very efficient (English speaking people so... More

We had an excellent meal here. It was one of the higher end restaurants we visited during our stay in Montevideo. Very nicely appointed and great atmosphere. The staff are very attentive. Excellent wine list. Our meals were very good. The barbecued lamb was outstanding. For some reason, a hassle to pay in cash, so use your credit card for... More

We went for lunch twice as a group. Service was attentive though slow. Food was delicious and varied, from appetizer of "chorizos" (sausages) to entrees of risotto, steak, veal or fish, all generous portions. They also serve freshly baked bread and garlic toast with two spreads: pate or humus. Terrific deserts as well. Good wine selection.
