Wonderful wine and appetizers at this casual but chic open air restaurant on the beach. We were there mid afternoon on a Sunday and it was packed but fun.

an upscale shack by the beach La Huella should be on your must do list. We were there in November, pre-high season but it was overrun with the "beautiful people" due to the fancy wedding of a Brazillian government official's daughter. You MUST make a res here, as far in advance s possible or you will end up having dinner... More

We had an excellent meal at La Huella! The place was crowded. Service was slow, but it's worth the wait. The whole fish was so good and the Dulce de Leche volcano dessert to die for!

I don't have enough words to describe it... we tried many things and everything surprised us. The service is very polite and competent and the food is amazing. Don't think too much about it... just go there and be happy!!!!

Excellent food, we ate there twice, once for dinner, once for lunch- large enough variety of very local and fresh items. Local wines are good, the service is also wonderful - they are attentive, but do not rush anyone out. We were there as a couple, but saw several families.

What a really cool place to eat! Especially with a large group of people. When we arrived it was raining and they met us at the door of our bus with large umbrellas. The atmosphere was one of the most fun and relaxing places ever! A beach cabana like theme, comfortable chairs, wood floors, candles burning, the large grills burning... More

I just stopped there for a quick bite, the setting is beautiful and the food looked great. Believed to be one of the best restaurants in the area. It looks casual, but it is not, even though next to the beach all the clientele dress up for the occasion

Amazing food, great service, incredible view, fantastic atmosphere. It was the BEST place we ate during our stay on the coast of Punta Del Este.
