So we came here twice in 4 days. Wish it had been open at night. Off peak season only weekend nights or lunch. Lunch is a required activity. We really liked the look of the place. Even while the town was quiet...this is where everyone was. And ate and chatted and made new friends. I can't say it was the... More

the setting alone would make this an excellent place for drinks or food. The ambience and food lived up to expectations. Highly recommended for lunch and dinner. The epitome of the maxims used to describe this area: "bohemian chic".

La Huella is at José Ignacio beach (the trandy beach of the moment) in Punta del Este. One must book in advance, since it seems to be always full. It's a very, very nice and cozy "at the beach" restaurant: relaxed and yet sophysticated. The food, specially fish and "fruits de mer", is excellent, drinks and wine list are also... More

An absolute show stopper of a meal. The service was incredible; they were amazing to us. The food is the best you can get anywhere in the world (eat the specials). The vibe is surreal. If you love food and incredible dining experiences, do not miss this.

A must to visit, make sure to secure a reservation. Beautiful location next to beach with sand dunes nearby. If possible get a place towards the back. Breezy in the summer, and they provide locally knitted blankets in the winter. The Food is first class at this award winning restaurant

This place is great. Its crowded, so your toddlers can be as loud as they want, but be warned, it is crowded, so leave the strollers at home. They have great fresh juices, fried fish, pizza and ice cream for kids and fantastic grilled fish, wine, and sushi for the parents. It is crowded though, so even at lunch you... More

great atmosphere, unbelievable sunset, beautiful people; and the food is great. The place is located on the Brava section of Jose Ignacio; at the very entrance to the beach. Service is spotless, the food is all local. Good wine list. Like everything else in Punta and specially in Jose Ignacio prices are reminiscent of Courchevel. Blame it on the very... More

Visited La Huella for lunch during a very busy long weekend (holidays in Brazil and Argentina). On the plus side: the food was very nice, and the menu has very good options for all tastes; location is beautiful, and so is the venue; service was very courteous. On the down side: had to wait 45 min for a table even... More
