Food is pricey, no question, but was definitely high quality. Pretentiously expensive wine list, but the biggest cost came in the unexpected extras. Bread was brought to the table and refilled. Little did we know that the five bread sticks would not be on the house. US$15 for 2 baskets of bread sticks? Desserts were pretty special though. I recommend... More

Fresh delicious pasta in a fancy ambiance. I loved the open kitchen behind a glass wall. You can see your choice getting produced from scratch. The service is also excellent, maybe a little pricy.

The food is good, but nothing special and fairly expensive. The staff is nice and so is the ambience, but you can definitely get better value for your money.

I hosted a dinner for 4 business colleagues at the Restaurant. It has a nice ambiance, great wine list. Very attentive staff. The food was really good. The seafood starter platter was excellent. All the mains and the desserts were top notch. One of the few restaurants in the area where you can still have a decent conversation, without competing... More

The ordered steak was average quality, not what I expected in Uruguay, but very expensive, the restaurant has a nice interior, the wine list is great but also with skyrocketing prices

I don't know what to say.... after incredible meals in Montevideo this was ridiculous.... The restaurant is fancy and looks good, with a nice decor and ambience. However the service and food are just bad jokes. We got early and the restaurant was almost empty, even though every time we needed the waiter it took forever for someone to come.... More

Nice restaurant near the World Trade Center area... Seemingly popular for business meals... nice setting - we enjoyed the eggplant appetizer - i found the lasagna a bit heavy but overall - it was a good meal friendly staff

A Lovely looking place is deceiving when it comes to food and service. The service was presumptuous and slow. By far the WORST FOOD EVER and the prices SKY HIGH. I ordered the octopus carpaccio. It was inedible. Like chewing a rubber tire. Swimming in excessive oils and pimenton. I wanted to throw up!! Had to leave it on the... More

This the most refined restaurant I know in Montevideo. The place is nice and charming, tables are reasonablely aparted, fine glasses, silverware etc - that is not very common here. Food is ok. Nice italian food with a "eating out" feeling (the type I'd not be able to reproduce at home): I've been there a couple of times and have... More

Not the best risotto but ok, the other plates were fine but a lot of food on the plate beter to order portzione ridotta half the amount of food. The wine was good, however the first bottle was not ok and we did not accept this nasty smelling wine.
