    I was hosting out of town guest. The server did a phenomenal job translating all of the terms on the menu from Spanish into English. The service was really good. The table setting clean and crisp. The meal was fine. Outdoor seating was perfect on a pleasant sunny day in the middle of summer in Montevideo. Delightful.

    We were in Pocitos beach and came here to do some shopping and to have lunch. We spent a couple of hours and had good time. There are many European stories, but some local ones as well.

    We bought our tickets online from Direct Ferries - this was pretty straight forward I’m not sure why people have advised against it.

    We chose the 7am slot with Coloniaexpress. This cost around £41 each and included a bus transfer to the ferry.

    On the confirmation email it advises passengers to arrive 90 minutes before departure- however we decided this was in reference to the ferry so we arrived at the bus station (Tres Cruces) at 6am (food stalls are open then).

    The bus did leave half an hour early so make sure you do get there with time to spare!

    After the bus we went through customs which was a quick bag check and then we got our passports stamped. We were directed upstairs where there were two queues- however only ours (on the left) had a screen above with the ferry company on. This made us and fellow passengers confused/worry that both queues were for the same ferry and that we were in the priority queue (ours was significantly shorter).

    However the other queue was for a different ferry and all was well. We queued for quite a long time and then we were directed onto the ferry, which was pretty big and had plenty of seats. We arrived in Argentina in under 2 hours (much faster than it says on your ticket).

    Overall a pretty easy journey!

    East of downtown, the city closes off dozens of streets, to allow many hundreds of street vendors, selling both new and used merchandise, as well as food. Much of the sites have old stuff.

    The market is ok and for sure it makes this area a very crowded one, since at Sunday there is this thing.

    The entrance to the museum does not foreshadow the extreme richness of its collections and their very professional presentation. The interior layout of the building is of interest in itself. I discovered an artist of extraordinary sensitivity and creativity. A very beautiful temporary exhibition as well. This visit will certainly be followed by other visits to deepen this experience. Well done!

    Several websites said it was open until 4:00pm, but everything was closing by 2:00pm when we went on a Tuesday. Most of the clothing seemed to be the same things you would find in stores -- not handmade goods. Lots of vegetable stands on the other side of the park.

    Very modern food and handcrafts Uruguayan new place for eating drinking and buying typical local sourvenirs, above the "Mercado de los Artesanos"!
    Delicious uruguayan parrilla, détox juices, mexican takos, handcraft beer, highly recommendable to take your foreign guests!
    My advise would be to take care of sanitary ítems in the whole place!

    The place worth a stop because it has a nice and beautiful collection of photos. There is also a nice shop inside.

    Good shopping centre with a supermarket within. It isn't too big but it looks good and it has a pretty good variety of shops.
    If you are around it is worth to stop by but don't get out of your way if you don't have much time to spend in Montevideo. Great place to buy the jerseys of the national football team and the city clubs.

    Now ran by the second generation, this factory store makes leather clothing in an artesanal fashion. Their prices are really very competitive and they deliver high quality material and craftsmanship.
    Located on the first floor, they are kinda difficult to find, but you find if worthwhile.
    All leather clothing is made in their own factory, and they do adjustments, if needed, overnight.
    Lovely people to talk too, a real family business. If you are looking for a leather jacket or something like that, this place is worth a visit. We know them for a few years now and always drop by.

    I visited the Espacio Arte Manfredi on December 23 after scheduling a gallery appointment with the director of the gallery, Gustavo Moreira Manfredi. Mr. Manfredi greeted me at the appointed time and dedicated his time to informing me of the various holdings within his gallery. Mr. Manfredi is a first-rate director and has strong customer service skills.

    For some one new to acquiring art, Mr. Manfredi put me at ease and addressed my questions thoroughly. I recommend paying a visit to this art gallery that appears to be off the beaten path (i.e., not located in ciudad vieja) but is truly worth a visit or two.
