Visited with my wife on a week end. Had to wait about 15 min at lunch time on. Saturday. Good space between tables, reasonable quality beef, nice salads. Service is good although not quick. Environmental very friendly, mostly couples and families, a TV on. Price reasonable. A place to go back to. Well done

Choriozos, morcillas, chinchulines, chotos are good. So are picanha and vacío. Environment is just acceptable, service is effective but very basic. Price is moderate

this place is extremly simple, and extremly cheap. the atention, decoration, quality of food are all simple, and in some cases, a little bad. but it's extremly cheap and that's is good. It's a typical place that locals and uruguyians go. If course it's not advisable for tourist in a short trip looking for the best.

Thank Augusto1234
