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.

Incredible well done barbecue place. Located in downtown Maldonado , this restaurant offers a good experience on how meat is prepared and offered in Uruguay. The place is simple, not fancy. Need to arrived early, otherwise will have to wait for a table. A bit...More

It is a shame for a nice place like this to offer such a bad quality beef. My wife ordered Lomo (filet mignion), it was good and cooked as requested "al punto" which is medium. I ordered the "Ojo de Bife" (Rib Eye) "jugoso" which...More

Lo de Ruben is a classic parrilla, and one that I visit every time I go to Uruguay. It's a simple place, not the fanciest decor or service. But then again, Uruguay (barring Punta) is not exactly somewhere that celebrates decor and pomp, so I...More

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.

If you are a gringo (and every tourist is a gringo), you will be treated as a gringo: sit tight, order, eat, pay and shut up. The food is just OK, but you only get what you ask for (in your flumsy Platense), and you'll...More
