If you want to have a good fish meal and a great view to the haven of Punta del Este, you are at the right place! A friendly service team helps you to find the right dish. The selection of wine or drinks is excellent, so be sure of some good time in the Virazon. Don't forget, that tourists paying... More

Out of high season quality of service and food was really great , even if your Spanish is weak, you'll still feel welcome. Prices reasonable to more fashionable venues but I would definitely have this as a favourite.

My wife and I, if looking to get out of the house, always think of Virazon first. Whether it's a clericot at sunset or revuelto gramajo and coffee in the morning, this is our favorite spot on the Peninsula, bar none !!

when you do not know where to go, go to Virazon. You can not go wrong there. It is always open and you will get fresh fish and traditional entrees. Some waiters are a little too much, so I try to avoid them because they are overwhelming. I ordered Miniaturas ( small pieces of fish fried in batter), or the... More

Very good restaurant with a variety of fish, meat and pasta. Unless you're a local and paying with a local Credit Card (you get 25% off your bill), prices are higher than the average for this type of rest. Very pleasant staff, sometimes slow in delivering. Weekly mid-days with a fixed menu are an excellent option. View of the Yacht... More

the location and the view are great (Playa Mansa). The best is to eat outside, weather permitting. The service is very attentive and cordial.

Salad was missing ingredients, Chivito meat was 10% of the sandwich. Low quality. The person in charge treated me bad after my feedback and complaint.

It used to be a good place. I go to Virazon since I was a kid. We took some friends from Argentina for lunch. The fish wasn't cooked enough, the seafood was like gum and the meat to make the Milanesa was almost white. It was an unpleasant experience.

The view and location is excellent but the service is very slow. We waited almost 40 minutes for a simple salad and some scrambled eggs. Also the price for what they serve is way too much
