The restaurant is laden with atmosphere both inside and out. Food was delicious, and the service was attentive. Despite the mix of beautiful and moneyed patrons, the place has a laid-back relaxing vibe to it. It is possibly the most beautiful restaurant experience I've ever had.

The beef was greaat, but their specialty is their grilled fish. The staff was very attentive to details, answering all our questions... More

Amazing restaurant right on the beach. It's about 30 minutes from Punta del Este, but well worth the drive! Be sure to call ahead to get a reservation.

La Huella, in Jose ignacio, Uruguay, keeps its allure, no matter the weather. It is romantic, the view is fabulous, and the staff is excellent. The food is first rate, and even the "servicio" (bread and spread) is superb. We had mussels, "rabbis" and champagne, and ice-cream for dessert plus coffee, and even if the prices are not cheap, the... More

If you are in Jose Ignacio, La Huella is a must go experience. My wife and I had a couple of lunches here in the afternoon with wonderful wines and delicious food, all with the beach atmosphere unfolding directly in front of you. Coming back at night for dinner, the place magically transforms into a casual yet sophisticated restaurant with... More

The restaurant is on the beach of José Ignacio. It is full of rich Argentinians who have their holiday houses there and tend to gather here in large groups. The food is creative and very good, although the location comes with a premium. But it is a magical place, watching the ocean and the stars at night, right by the... More

Casual with glamour. This is the best place to eat in the Uruguayan cost. Winter or summer midday or night. Need booking and despite that you may wait long. You can have from sushi to pizza. The corvina with papas escrachadas is probably their most famoust dish. Its a must do!!

Just 20/30 minutes away drive from La Barrat and Punta del Este. Stylish bar/restaurant by the dunes. The food is very good and an excellent wine list. Loved the blue cheese quiche to start and the Tannat Rose. The crowd is international, chic but not pretentious. Walk around the area. Nice houses overlooking the sea. Remind me in a way... More

Great food. Perfect atmosphere whether outside during the day or inside at the bar in the evening. A must go and worth a drive from Punta Del Este if your not staying in Jose Ignacio. I love this place (don't tell anyone else)

Setting, seafood and drinks on the deck were excellent. Stylish spot--loved the wool ponchos they give you for outdoor dining.
