This is a trendy bar in Carrasco with fresh sushi and good drinks. I like the atmosphere and the staff are friendly.

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

I ordered a dish based on pink salmon. A few minutes later, I was served some sort of river fish (corvina, maybe) that had been painted in a pink-reddish clumsy way. I returned it, paid for my drink, and left. This was my first and last visit to "Café Misterio". I believe the real "mystery" lays in the ingredients utilized... More

Undoubtedly the best place in town. Located in beautiful Carrasco district, the place is vibrant, with a great atmosphere, excellent food, great service. Don´t miss the Sushi, the recently added Pink Sashimi is fantastic. But since it has a very good menu, it is a place to go more than once.

This used to be one of the top restaurants in Montevideo. With an increase in the offerings of good restaurants in the city and a decrease in the quality of the menu in Cafe Misterio, it has now became average. It still has its magic and is very nicely decorated. Give it a try if you are around Carrasco

We had a very good meal here. Restaurant was hopping, Staff was entertaining and food was very solid. See and be seen and assume parking will be a challenge.

Sorry to see the quality become average. It is such a nice place when you are sitting outside for dinner. Steak was good, French fries just awful and dessert really nothing to write home about. Wine list could be more balanced. There are wines at a ver reasonable price and some very expensive ones. Something in the middle would be... More
