I went here a few years ago to visit my then fiance that lived there. She lived 5 mins walking from this place and I could smell the beautiful steak as I got closer. I went 8 out of the 10 days I visited. AND I took some home to the States. It's like a bar, but go for the... More

We were recommended this restaurant by an Argentinian friend for lunch. This place is tiny and if you sit inside you see the chef cook the food. We had sausage and vegan wraps for lunch with beer. The wraps were delicious with a fresh arugula salad. What a contrast to all the trendy bars and rest in this area. We... More

I love the meat, I love the ambience. This place is small so don't be surprised if you have to wait for 30 minutes or more before you will have a table. You can have a drink on the sidewalk while waiting, and it's deff worth it. We had diner here maybe 4/5 times and it was very good every... More

The quality of meats was incredible for a place that does not even have a sign outside. Get there 1 hr before and take a seat at one of the 4 tables outside. The last 2 pages in the menu are in English. We tried kidneys, blood sausage, chicken thigh, rib eye steaks (a must!) and went there twice during... More

This neighborhood grill is not much to look at, but the food is delicious and prices are much lower than other paradillas I visited in Montevideo. Be forewarned that there are only small stools to sit on inside, but there are a few tables with chairs outside. This is not a fine dining establishment, but the food is excellent. My... More

Have had the best beef at this hidden gem in Montevideo. It cannot become more genuine when it comes down to uruguayan beef. Service is perfect. Prices unbeatable for what you get. Non of these fancy restaurants, but by far one of the best restaurants in uruguay.

If not for the food they serve, you might think you are in Tokyo or in Madrid. It is a parrilla (bbq) with the best meat, chorizos (sausages), mollejas (sweet bread), etc., cooked in front of you, served hot and juicy by well trained staff. They are as fast and efficient as in Tokyo or Madrid! The place is tiny,... More

MEAT TO PERFECTION! In a small and traditional place where they simply serve you the best meat around. Amazing, friendly, genuine. Not a great choice of wine, but who cares go there for fill up your neat cravings and restore your cholesterol level. A feast, an orgy of meat. Fantastic.

Are you a meat lover? Fancy a beer by the sidewalk? This is your place! A very small, local parrillada place. They like to keep it simples. 4-5 wooden tables by sidewalk and a few benches on a bar (la barra) and that's it. The place gets crowded, mostly with locals! We went for lunch on a Sunday and arrived... More

Probably had the best rib eye of my life, so much so we returned the following night for short ribs. Had bbq in Brazil and Argentina and I would say so far this is my favourite. The place is small and local, and the people running the place are friendly and down to earth. Pricing is definitely kind. We arrived... More
