Go there to get the real thing. Boniato (sweet potato glazed by a branding iron) with two or three meats served with a short but enough wine list provides the real uruguay steak. Two old - almost wierd - old motorcycles - a Zundapp and...More

We were a big group, 4 couples. The waiter was very experient, everything was good- specially the meat- ojo de bife- tasteful and huge! The place is nice, and accepts reservation before 8:30 pm.

Felt rushed, we gave this resto three chances and all times the girls that helped us were inpatient, and at times rude. Food is ok, but one needs to feel relaxed when eating.

a great selection of parilla (barbecued) food and other cooked meals as well as some desserts. Much cheaper than the port equivalent restaurants, and well patronized by the locals.
