The first time we were searching this place, we did not notice that this normal house door, hardly lit, was actually the entrance. No reservations are taken, but if you are there and all the tables are occupied, it is worth it to wait until a table becomes free. To recommend: "bife de lomo" and the seafood tartlet. We returned... More

I went there with my wife and some friends with not high expectations, the place is not in a commercial or trendy area in Maldonado city, from outside is like to see a "conventillo", but the experience by itself is unique. Very warm and cozy place, with a great staff and fantastic food. The Brocoli Noquis and the Boar Chops... More

We had dinner there just last night again... still a quaiant little place where to have a very good meal. Be sure to arrive early (8.30 pm or so) if you don´t want to wait behind a long queue. The food is unusual for any Uruguayan restaurant, the place is charming and the service is very good. If you are... More

It's not easy to find the place. Almost no sign outside and it looks like a private house The ambiance is "calida" very informal and relaxed. The service very friendly . The food is unexpectedly delicious in this Gastronomic desert of Maldonado

Absolutely exquisite home made food! If you are looking for: * Second to none hospitality and service with a personal meaning * exquisite food (without the huge price tag) * A varied menu choice Then "sí querida" is a MUST for a visit. Once a guest you become family : )

We were a little apprehensive about the location which is out the way. Si Querida is a very small restaurant and cozy family style restaurant with a very unique decor and experience. We had pizza for an appetizer and the Roasted Wild Boar for diner, both of which were excellent. Si Querida is not a 5 start gourmet jet set... More

When you are tired from parilla, then you need to get there - the tarts, salmon, large salads, empanadas are freshly served and you could look how all this prepared by 3 people in the tiny kitchen. The last review in English has not tried the food there, Nathalia (the manager) is nice and the situation described appears akward to... More

A friend of mine told me about this place. It was supposed to be a good place to eat. Since we were a party of 8 we called and tried to reserve a table but were told we could not do that and we needed to come and request a table. We arrived to the very small restaurant. The door... More
