“Lovely restaurant with inspired food and outstanding wines”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Our first night in Montevideo we by chance run into Bar Tabare and had a very memorable evening with inspired food and outstanding wines (Bouza Tannat A8). The ambiance was great, the personal attentive and the drinks just lovely.

“Not worth going”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Apart from that I got completely cold meal the meat was not prepared properly. The part of "recommended" dish were tasting like yesterdays potatoes, smashed again with addition of pinch of other vegetables. This is called "rustic", huh, indeed tasted like this.
The service was horrible, even if we went there not in high hours the delays and waiting for waiters were irritating (yes, many, not one waiter to one table). Generally: poor food, poor service, high prices. They base only on tripadvisor logo hanging on the doors. Should be removed.

“Nice food and music, friendly staff, cool ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Don't miss it if you are visiting Montevideo. Good fish, unforgettable risotto and, of course, uruguayan beef. Book a table in the old room.

“Early bird”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We live very close to Tabaré, so we sometimes go there early with our two ten-year olds. The food is excellent, and their is always something the children like. Personally, I find rissottos wonderful.

“Historical and Hip.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

With an art deco bar and an old room preserving its classical style, Bar Tabare is one of my favorite places in Montevideo. The service is friendly, the food is very good and people usually chic. In all, it is a historical and hip place to enjoy.
