Convenient location on the harbor, efficient service and rather large menu. We had a good fish and a very good risotto, wine by the glass was average. Nothing to really complain about but nothing really fantastic either.

This is a very good restaurant. They take reservation, but if don´t have one no problem. You are going to wait for a while, but soon they will gat a table for you. The food and the ambiance are just great in the Peninsula area.

The menu was unappealing and the place seemed very artificial in character. The food was OK. But the biggest problem is mostly that connected right next door is a clearly superior restaurant at approximately the same price range. Value seemed bad but again its Punta and it is an ocean view restaurant.

Had lunch here in memory of my lovely old dog Isidore who departed two months ago - I saw the restaurant driving in and had to go. So, now that we have the soppy over, this was a really pleasant lunch with a great view of boats at anchor fighting a really stiff wind. I ate fish (of Uruguayan name)... More

We came here after a long search for another restautant which was closed at the end. The service was good but it has its price. I had some chicken with a creamy sauce and mushed potatoes with roquefort topping which was delicious,but also a bit heavy. My boyfriend had the ravioli which were nice with a real tomato sauce (in... More

Excellent dinner with a wonderful view. Located on the peninsula near the port. Had fried calamari (Rabas) and fresh local fish (Brotola) and both were delicious. The service was excellent. Though March is usually considered off season, the restaurant was packed.

It is still one of the best places in Punta. There is nothing to add about the service which is outstanding, swift, cordial and attentive. The Beef Filet was rear as I ordered it, nicely red. The Potato Gratin and the Spinach perfectly cooked. The Pollo Manhattan is always tasteful. And the Cheesecake with Berries to end the meal was... More

We arrived early at 8 PM (early for Uruguay) and there was only one other couple while next door at Lot (seafood) the place was humming already. That should have been a hint to us. Service was prompt and friendly and the decor and views good. We had two vegetable soups which were very average and full of bits of... More

Isidora is the right choice if you are looking for tasty food and a very beautiful and pleasant restaurant. The service is also very good! I asked for a delicious Risoto and my husband ordered pasta. We had both with a great rose wine. The location is great: you can enjoy your meal while watching Punta del Este port!! I... More
