The caldo verde was wonderfully intense, my fresh cod was done to perfection, the flesh barely gelled, and my friends were all thrilled... read more

Had heard great things about this place. Looks great with stylish decor. And concept of a Portuguese menu in Montevideo is a pleasant change frOm all the parillas here. But food was of very poor relation to anything you would get in Portugal. Avoid there Portuguese wines. What a pity

This stylishly sleek little place tucked under the urban forest canopy of Montevideo's funky Cordon neighbourhood was a nostalgic trip back to southern Portugal. The caldo verde was wonderfully intense, my fresh cod was done to perfection, the flesh barely gelled, and my friends were all thrilled with their shrimp, flounder and steak. Montevideo is not known for culinary innovation... More

I was amazed with this cozy and tasteful restaurant in Montevideo. I am Portuguese living in Mexico for the past 3 years and went to Uruguay for vacations. When i found out there was a Portuguese restaurant i had to try it. I really felt at home. The appetizers of codfish terrific, the "bife na pedra" a must, and desserts... More
