FIne food and service,

We had dinner at this restaurant after an extremely difficult two days in Montevideo. It was just what the doctor ordered. We were immediately enchanted by the location and the ambiance and it only got better from there. I had the paella which, like the service, was superb.

The Sushi is good, the steaks are okay, the risotto is very good and the deserts are good. Being in Montevideo there are other restaurants that have fabulous steaks. We prefer their Caracas location. Even going on a regularly or often we never feel like preferred guest.

The place has got such great reviews my expectations were high. The paella was excellent. The sushi was not exciting and the salad was good. Worth visiting once, but probably won't repeat as there are so many other good places that we have not yet been.

This restaurant offers superb service and a comfortable, fine dining ambience. We had two 'executive' meals and one regular. The executive came with an appetizer, entrée, drink and dessert. They brought delicious breads for the table and the strangest thick hummus spread I have ever had. It was an interesting take on hummus but I prefer the original. We had... More

It's a very good place but not my kind of place. We ordered the Brasero which is a dish with many different kind of meat. When it arrived at the table every meat looked like charcoal: completely toasted, dry and black! We've called the manager who did not give any attention to that fact and he called a waitress. She...

Huge menu with lots to choose from. Seemed to be more tourists eating here compared to other restaurants we ate at. The grilled salmon was very good. My husband had the porcini mushroom risotto and found it to never rich. Wines were a bit pricey in addition to the food. Okay, but not great.

We arrived 10 minutes before 8pm, & of course only Americans want to eat that early. So we walked around the block a couple of times (we are fast walkers). Once in the restaurant we saw a warm & inviting atmosphere. The wait staff accommodated our English and made suggestions about our dinner selection & wine. Although the prices reflected... More

I have to say the waitors were great and we were really well served. However the food was very expensive and not good at all. We returned one of our plates and were still charged. Do not reccomend :(

Food is excellent, good service. Servings are pretty big. Any dessert with dulce de leche is worth ordering.
