Good sushi

Had dinner here with colleagues (8.30 reservation) and ordered a big plate of sushi which was fresh and yummy. The service was ok, though they did bring the wrong dessert at first and getting the bill took about 30 minutes. Great atmosphere.

You can have a great meal in a very cozy place with lounge music. Perfect combination. Many options and good waiters.

We had a 8pm reservation and were the first in this large room, by 9.30 the entire restaurant was filled with guests. This is a popular dining scene for the local Carrasco residents - the food is very good and it's easy to understand why one must have a reservation. Our hosts ordered for us knowledgeably, and we enjoyed every... More

I've eaten at Cafe Misterio 4 times. Each time the food remains the same as does the service. Great! It's a bit pricey but worth an evening visit during the summer months for the buzz.

I have eaten in five decent restaurants over the last few days and can say that this place is the best by a good margin. If they had a reputation then I wasn't aware of it previously. The service is superb and the food sublime. Every course was perfect. The wines by the glass very good indeed. I look forward... More

The service was good but the appetizers were okay, not great. Out of a big variety, only 1 for vegetarians. In a party of 13, there were 3 that didn't eat meat. Entrees, only 2 loved their sushi. The rest felt it was ok. The filled raviolones weren't good. Deserts were good for everyone. Prices too high for what is... More

We have been living in Montevideo for 6 years and love this place ... we live in the neighborhood and we always try new places. However, when we want to make sure things won't go wrong, we come here. Either for a complete meal or for sushis & mojitos. They will not kick you out but will bring your invoice... More

Second visit and good both times. It is one of the few options in Montevideo with an alternative menu. The sushi was great and their "chiporones apetizer" (calamari) is way different and better compared to others in Montevideo,

This restaurant is highly praised, so, finding ourselves in Carrasco, we decided to give it a try. The most apparent problem, on a look at the menu, was the prices. Most appetizers are in the 400 to 600 peso range. Most main course items are 500 to 700 pesos, and most desserts in the 300-400 range. Beverages, cubierto (mandatory cover... More
