This is a small narrow restaurant with seating only at the bar. The service is prompt and conscientious. The food is well prepared and fresh. They bring you bread with truffle butter and usually a couple samples of Bruschetta covered with tomatoes, humus or other types of delicious toppings. The menu has a small selection of entree choices, but each... More

Sofisticated "no frills" delicious cuisine with a new menu everyday. The service is excelent and very helpful. You can expect a pat on the back which will be visit from the owner/chef to chat and ensure everything is to your liking.

My first visit to Uruguay 4 years ago an expat friend to us there for lunch and now we have been living here for 2 years so I been to many restaurants and this... More

The service is quick and attentive, and the food is outstanding!. It is better to book in advance, as the place is small and has many regulars. But the service is so fast that you will quickly find a seat (no tables, only a counter, but the food is worth it).

This tiny restaurant is full of surprises, especially when we talk about sweet. At the end of our meal my husband and I decided to try one of the yummy options that the waitress mentioned, it was "Flan de Maracuyá" and it was the best decision we could made!!!! Beautiful presentation and extremely taste. It is one of the best... More

Excellent atmosphere, better food. I had filet mingnon. Only in Uruguay would they ask you if you want one filet or two. Steak was perfect, as were the sides. Great bread. I was allowed to sit quietly and write post-cards after my meal, while the staff had their meal. One word of warning: this place closes at 4pm, so you... More

I really don´t know why the food is rated as excellent, I went two times because I was working two blocks from the restaurant. The first day the food was ok, the soup was too spicy, but the second was below average with a Filet Mignon with no taste, and look that in Uruguay filet is always great. They don´t... More
