Place is very pleasant, nothing special in food. They have a reduced menu with salads, 1 type of pizza and some local wine.

Great food, ambiance and staff. I definitely recommend for couples in love. The place is small, only about six tables on the sidewalk plus one inside, therefore reservation is advised

Good meals, low price. Nice style and decor. A fun experience for a quick lunch if you take the executive menu.

This restaurant has a menu for lunch that costs 290 uruguayan pesos ( 11 dollars), but that doesn't mean that you'll have junky food, just the contrary of it. It's located in Punta Carretas, at Luis de la Torre with Francisco Ros.if you don't take a dessert here, walk a block and take an ice cream at the cigale. Gorgeous!

A very good choice for a lazy Sunday. Well located in a cozy neighborhood. The plates are simple but will leave you well. The desserts are very good and large

The staff was friendly and helpful, our steaks were beautiful, and the ambiance and neighborhood were really nice. One of the stand-out meals of our Uruguay/Argentina trip.

What a pleasant surprise. A very nice, small place in an older quiet neighborhood. With a menu full of good things. Our server suggested pork chops and she was spot on. Very well prepared, good favor and a good size portion. Topped with good local wine, it was a great evening. Come early and with a reservation, they fill up... More

Intimate at its best. If you're looking to surprise your new lover with a fancy, homely, humble, private and romantic meal to the light of the candles, this is the place you want to visit.

It is a small but very comfortable, homely atmosphere. In summer recommend fish dishes and seafood, in winter recommend pot meal, good wine, great attention by the owners. It's like they saying "food made with love"
