The place is really nice and the waitress and staff very nice. Such as the entry, first plate and dessert is very good and the sushi is excellent. I go frequently to this place on thurdays or fridays at night and is good fun to eat here.

Such a pity we have discovered this place a week before leaving the country! We were invited here by friends who are locals. While waiting for them we sat at the bar and could see that the barman was very professional and careful proposing us wines of our taste and making nice cocktails, which we tried later on at the...

He was right one the money. Cozy, romatic atmosphere. Attentive staff. The food was excellent! I went very boring by my standards (trying to... More

One of the best options in Montevideo. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, good drinks and menu adapts to every customer - small but varied. Salads and the tiraditos are very nice. Try the "chocolate a morir" for dessert if you are a chocoholic!

this place is amazing, crowd, athmosphere, fun is at the best. Very good to start and end with drinks in this beautiful area of MV. But food is barely decent. They try to avoid serving you parrilla and they improvise some fish with roquefort or other strange things that for euro costumers are quite appalling. Tried even a sushi night... More
