New visit - this time just perfect!

My first review wasn't exactly great, but after the management responded in a very open, positive way, we simply gave the restaurant and it's team another chance. And I'm truly glad we did! Actually, we have already returned twice, and I'm sure this time wasn't the last one. The service was very... read more

Has quite a good presentation and a nice and spacious place, garnished to detail. Staff is quite polite and willing to serve. Meat is quite spectacular and of good quality and preparation. Fits almost any occasion, from romantic dinner to business deals.

Unfortunately, I can only agree with the previous reviewer: our visit was a huge disappointment. While the entrance looks quite inviting, the actual restaurant has no atmosphere at all. The tables are decorated with white table cloths and actually quite professional, but the lighting is by far too bright. The walls are carelessly covered with different paintings from several artists... More

Mr. Edmonton, thanks for your review, it is very important to us. In our restaurant, we try to make everyone feel comfortable and sometimes it is difficult because we have a very wide audience. Our friends and guests are always welcome in any situation, whether they are in family, couple or business. We were very disappointed to know that your... More

We visited the restaurant on a Monday evening. The restaurant has as far as I could see, roughly 40 tables in different sizes in two separate rooms. There were only four other people in the room with us and a table of 8 or 10 in the other. The first impression of the restaurant was good although the lady who... More

the steaks are great and definitely get the papa soufflé and or the cheese soufflé they are to die for. The waiters are helpful. Also good selection of seafood if you are not a steak person.

An excellent choice in Alphaville/Barueri... Meat dishes are excellent, good portions. Soufflé chips are very good. The plate of grilled vegetables was excellent and huge. The panqueque de dulce de leche (crepe) was great! A very good choice in the area!...

I went to El Uruguayo with some colleagues following the suggestion from a business partner we were visiting in Sao Paulo. The place looked beautiful with an impressive grill just at the entrance, the atmosphere was cool, the menu seemed superb and the wine list very interesting. We tried different starters and then shared three cuts of meat, Incredibly, only... More
