I have been a patron here since my move 6 months ago. I have been back at least once a week for all that time. Why? Because it hits all my buttons: feels good, welcomes you and is consistent! The food has always been good and sometimes borders on adventurous. Steaks good, sauces so so, pizza... read more

Service spoke English and put up with me ordering in Spanish. They made space for a last minute reservation and called us a taxi at the end of the meal! finally... More

I've been in to many of the entries in the Trip Advisor top 20 and found this the best....for quality of food, service and value for money. Also good wine list and treat variety on menu. Always the first stop in Montevideo.

We only stayed one night in Montevideo, but I am convinced this must be the best restaurant in town. The place is cozy, dark and smells of lovely barbecued food. We got a table in the back yard which was nice because it was a bit hot inside. The waiter was attentive, funny and his recommendations were all time high!... More

Appeared that most of the customers were locals, The atmosphere was very nice and the service was also very good. This place seems... More

We had dinner at Cocina de Pedro on our short stop in Montevideo on our way to Buenos Aires. On a Monday evening at eight, we were welcomed very nicely even if, as hungry North-Americans, we tend to be the first to walk in restaurants in this part of the world. They were ready for us and everyone we got... More
