“Best service, great view and the food improved”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Since 2 years the kitchen improved a lot. Under the direction of Washington the service is one of the best in Punta. The view on the harbour is marvellous. Worth to go again for a nice dinner.

“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

An old fashion well kept and with a nice comfort food.That is Isidora.
It's been in Punta del Este since I was a kid.Long time ago!
If you like simple,home cooking with lots of oil-beware of your heart-you will love it.
I like it once in a while.
The " noissete potato" are amongst the best in town.As are the Milanesa trufada.A piece of filet mignon deep fried with cheese and " truffles".
I do love to go once in a while.The waiters are the same for years.
The view is AMAZING-you see the port of Punta.Ask for a table by the windows.

“Nice location but food was just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is just by the sea and not far from the port so a perfect location with a splendid view. Portions are quite large so you may consider sharing the starter (we ordered the fried mozzarella and the carpaccio but we could have easily done with just the mozzarella). Food was OK, and just that. My fish was slightly over-cooked but the Vasca sauce was good. Very good wine list

“Un plaisir pour les yeux**A pleasure for the sight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

In fact we were heading to the restaurant next door. But this place gave us a warmer and more welcoming impression. The set up looked professional. The staff very polite and friendly.
Wine card exquisite and reasonable prices. Food served was inviting as beautifully decorated... See pix. Can only recommend for a nice dinner with a fabtastic view.

“Very good restaurant, with a nice view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

It was one of the very few restaurants open on a monday night in november, but we were happy it was open.
All the plates were delicious: the aubergine a parmeggiana, the local fish (brotola) with shrimp, the calamar ink fettuccini. And the price was ok for a Punta Del Este restaurant.
The big window allows you to see the river and the small boats
