Very good steak. Convivial location. Worth considering

Casa Violetta was very good. Steak solid, service good. Wine selection excellent. With so many steak places in town I cannot rank it at the very top, but is a solid place, a good location right on the river.

The view is great - hardly surprising considering the location overlooking the Rambla / River Plate, but the food is very disappointing in this restaurant. I had steak and it wasn't very good quality, which is surprising for Montevideo and the service wasn't very good either. Over-priced - I suggest if you really want to come here, come for a... More

This restaurant is, in my opinion, clearly overrated. Food is not impressive and the place is not extraordinay, except for the view. There are much better restaurants in Montevideo.

We had our anniversary lunch here and the dining experience made our day. The look and feel of the restaurant is quite aristocrat along with friendly servers. We ordered a Classic menu and steak. The food portions are huge and we ended up getting our food packed. The Classic menu has a very wide variety of meat selections, which are... More

We made a reservation and showed up to them saying we did not and were given a table in the "middle". Asked for the chef to assist with special items, when told that they dont' do that, menu only. Desserts are tired and nothing like the "menu". Overall felt like a formula restaurant capitalizing on the view.

Food: 7/10 Warning: if you don't like meat, this place isn't for you. As a person who's not a huge fan of meat, I didn't really enjoy the food all that much. The salad bar and the bread were tasty though. This was my second time there and I ordered the set (?) menu. So basically a waiter/waitress comes over... More

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
