Though I have tried only vegetable salad, I loved this place. My husband had a lamb picanha, one of the best he tried in Montevideo. The winery makes this restaurant more elegant and cosy. It is a place worth visiting for a lovely romantic dinner.

Had a table with nice night time view on the harbor. Warm welcome and attentive service. Had Italian ante pasti and then some good steak with a bottle of good Uruguayan wine. The steak was cooked as ordered (very rare). It was calm in the restaurant and our waiter was very attentive to us. It's not cheap but it lives... More

Its outside beauty - next to the rambla, on the top of the hill - got our attention and we went to dinner during our vacation in Montevideo. Inside the restaurant, the questions started with staff service... the waiters were pretty distracted and time to bring a bottle of wine, water or even soda was terrible. The meat was OK... More

This place is located right in front of the sea and has an indoor and outdoor sitting area. The staff is super friendly and the ambience very relaxed. I've been at La Casa Violeta on multiple occasions with family, friends and colleagues and it never disappoints. The meat is probably the best I’ve ever had at a restaurant (since Uruguayan’s...

If you have been in Montevideo and didn't have a steak at the Casa Violeta restaurant, you just missed the best thing in that city! Never had a good steak like this one!

Fancy and expensive but offers goos food. We were six people and ordered several different dishes. Steak was great, pasta was honest and seafood was only ok. Salad bar is not worth the visit and prices are high. Looks like an hotel restaurant with no charm.

The Casa is amazing with its food and surrounding with a nice view of the sea and it's promenade the Rambla. We had their salad buffet and a juicy steak with a good wine. As a desert we choose the crepe a la Uruguayan style

The salad bar was boring and not worth the price. Our main dish was stake, very small serving and not good at all. The location is very nice though, believe it or not, it is the only restaurant across from the Buceo Marina.

Have been many times in the past with no problems and a great overall experience, however after last nights experience I will never go again. It has gone seriously down hill. The service was abhorrent. I was discriminated against because I am foreign, my Uruguayan friends agree, and was even over looked when my friends were being served. If you... More

This is one of the more expensive restaurants I've visited in Montevideo. Haing said that, the food quality is on the top 3 ranking in Montevideo. No discussion. If you go during lunch or on a "full moon" night, the view of the "Puerto del Buceo" adds a great value. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, if I know that... More
