A great place and ambient, ubicated in a historical place. Food is ok, just to taste not to get satisfy. Good ambient

We had lunch at the cellar with a very nice decoration. Food was good, well served, good size of portions. They gave us a welcome drink. Maybe service a little slow as we have to go back to work. Can be recommended with no doubts!

plaza de independencia is km 0 for all of Uruguay. so you can imagine that it is a pleasure to go from the chaos of the center of the city to this almost church like experience by crossing the street and walking into the opera house. The menu is pure Uruguay, with the parilla offerings, (local BBQ) and an impressive... More

Their food was suggested by a local as one of the best options in Montevideo and we were not disappointed. Food is great and so was the menu of wines. Moreover, the live music by a singer who played the piano made it a nice experience. She was able to sing some classics from Brazilian Bossa Nova which made us... More

This place has stunning decor and a lovely ambience. It is everything you would expect from upscale dining in South America. Really memorable and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

! went here twice and had the opportunity to try the main floor and the downstairs room.I believe it´s worth describing both, since the experience on the main floor is actually ok. Main floor: very upscale, with tables very far apart, attentive service and a duo piano/cello playing tango (no extra fee). Food is not extorsively priced by local standards... More

I went there one night and decided to go back on the night after (I cancelled my reservation on another restaurant). It is located at Solis Theater, very beautiful and chic place (I had dinner at the Rouge Saloon). The Food was... More

We went here for dinner after a wonderful performance at the Teatro Solis. The inside is very beautiful, with multiple dining rooms on different floors of the building. The dining room we were in was very beautiful-old decor that felt very warm. The server was very nice and attentive. They even sent out some complimentary appetizers with nuts-which I am... More
