Also as a general rule don't expect too much anywhere or else you might end up disapointed... I expected more because of tripadvisor reviews.. it was good though. If you liek to have an intimate lunch, or place to talk quietly there probably are otehr places, however if you are alone and want something different than typical "minutas" this is... More

Booked here because of TripAdvisor score. Not sure what to expect but after this experience, the score is well deserved. The place is quite small - is like a long bar ("stretched") where you serve the food and the cooks are preparing the food in front of you. The food was amazing in every detail and was topped with a... More

We absolutely loved the modern food served in a casual setting. It reminded us so much of all the great restaurants we frequent back in Melbourne. Absolutely the best meal we have had in Montevideo.

I absolutely love this style of restaurant, especially if you're dining solo. A huge bar with space for 40+ diners with the kitchen right in front of you. The whole vibe was very upbeat and not at all stuffy. I actually ended up going twice for lunch while in Montevideo. Both days the food was great, and the service was... More

We ate here 3 times for lunch and loved each visit. The food is fabulous, the staff very attentive, and it's fun to watch the workings behind the counter -- like clockwork.

Everything about this place is wonderful. The food, of course. But also good for entertainment value...the attention to detail of staff dedicated to their craft. And mushy peas ... in Montevideo!!! Who'd have thought it?!

From the bread and dips, to dessert and coffee the quality and taste of everything served is simply excellent! The place is usually packed, so MUST call for reservations in advance. Also eating over the bar instead of on the table gives it a little something different. If in downtown, a great place to be.

Delicious food, the desserts varies according to the day. If you are as fortunate as to be able to try the nuts and pecan tart, you will be indeed very lucky, it is the best desert in the world!
