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.

We have been visiting a famous meat restaurant in Punta, which is renowned for their beef, however the prices were so high. We were recommend this restaurant and saved 70% by eating here. The meat is great, service friendly in a relaxed atmosphere.

Interesting place, crowded with customers, offers good beef including tasty Pamplonas, fries, and beef cuts done with a good mastery of the parrilla. Tables are too close and therefore the place is somewhat noisy but prices are reasonable for the quality of the cuisine.

I have now visited Lo De Reuben 6 times. The food and service have consistently been absolutely wonderful. We keep going back, even though it is a little off the beaten path in Punta, because of the excellent food and consistently top service.
