We just stopped by for a casual lunch. We had a pork meal and a ravioli. The food was actually excellent, including the dessert. But the bill was inflated more than 30% (DTO, IVA, and some more) from the original price. I was kind of naive about everything here without knowing the local customs or much Spanish capability, so I... More

We stopped here for breakfast having just arrived in Uruguay and enjoyed toast with dulce de leche . The breakfast is good value for money and the service was very good. We sat outside and watched the birds 'parakeets' in the trees - there is a great charm at the town square and this is a great vantage point to... More

The entrecot was to small considering the price. Only advantage is the food comes really fast. Much better options around it

The food was ok, the service ok, the location is dirty (they could at least sweep the road before putting the tables and chairs out). Then we checked the bill and gave them the creditcard and they came back and had added 10% tip to my creditcard! I made them go back and refund it and do it again. You... More

I asked to change the food because it was not cooked enough and had bad taste and they bring the same food cooked a little more. Terrible!

If you just want to have a beer at the terrace, forget it. You won't feel welcome, rather, they'll get out ot their way to make you feel a burden... To be fair we interacted with two waiters and one of them was good, so you have a 50% chance..., you weight whether the view it's worth the chance to... More

Great location, outdoor tables, quick service. If lucky: very good 3 guitar musicians. Terrible bathroom. Weird ambiance inside. Best paella from a restaurant i had in years.

The waiter from Mexico was very helpful and the food was excellent. Really enjoyed spending a couple of hours sitting out in the lovely square with some excellent wine.
