This is by far the most heralded (and most expensive) restaurant in Montevideo so I had to check it out. The setting is perfect, located in Ciudad Vieja just next to the Teatro Solis, on the actual building, in fact. The dining room was excellently laid out with the perfect lighting. The live music was refreshing and I had one of the best salads I've eaten there, I actually wish it was a full-sized salad so I could have skipped the lamb entree, which left much to be desired. I tasted a distinct difference in the water they served, much lighter than I've had in other Uruguayan restaurants. The service was friendly but there were too many different waiters.
