“Style and atmosphere exceed food and service...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

We have eaten here several times as these types of restaurant/bars are few and far between in Montevideo. The first time we were genuinely impressed... subsequent visits can be best described as mediocre. Quality of food, preparation and presentation has notably dropped over the course of a year, for example the same salad looked a mess compared to the previous times when I ordered the same dish (former visits this salad was best described as a master piece of colours and presentation).

My wife's food was overcooked, her milanesa was burnt black underneath. Service was very very slow for a week night.... constantly waiting for something, or trying to attract a waiter to correct something which is not a mark of good service.

We really like the concept of the restaurant, a fusion of flavours in stylish surroundings ideal for taking just a cocktail if you wish. However, the price does not currently justify the overall experience. We hope the management return to their past form when we could not fault our dining experience.

“Good food, atmosphere and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

What we like: service ( kind and fast), atmosphere (cool, relaxed, nice setting, clean), food (not a huge menu but ok), close to the mall, the beach and some hotels (sheraton, tryp)
What we dislike: is by the street so if you eat outside it's a little noisy even if in a street with few cars

“Good not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2010

We tried Siam on our third night in Montevideo. Very handy for the Sheraton and the food was good. Fish and meat and specials. Why not great well I had the special Rolled Chicken - with spinach and cheese and it can warm but not really hot. They took it back for a reheat no problem but .... Not up to Francis standard and probably not quite as good as La Perdiz
