In our ten days in Punta del Este, this was the restaurant with the best quality fish. Delicious well-prepared food. Good service. Decor a bit tired but the excellent food is well worth the trip.

A great choice for dinner. Many seafood choices. I enjoyed the calamari (rabas) and grilled seafood platter. Reservations are a must.

I am never sure whether Patxi's building is truly old or designed to appear so - I think the former. Anyway, the walls have an attractive rustic bare brick presentation, with Basque flags and decorated with typical Basque items and pictures. There are several rooms and tables are well-spaced. They even play very pleasant background music. It is located near... More
