We came here twice, the sushi is good, and the daiquiris and capiroskas are excellent. I ate some shrimps with rice noodles and peanuts AMAZING!! It is very nice at lunch because you have the view of the ocean since the restaurant is on the beach, but it is good at night too.

We came here twice. Once to have champagne on the outside deck on the beach which was stunning! We came back two days later for a beautiful lunch. The Brotola was delicious and perfectly cooked. The place is a elegant version of a beach bar. Service was fantastic. Everything was perfect! Well recommended!

There is nothing better than eating at the beach, no matter what´s the weather like. At Mia Bistro, you can have lunch, dine or just a quick snack at any time. It is as nice and exquisite as last time we visited this resto-pub at the beach. You can eat out on the terrace with your beach trunks on, during... More

The food is delicious. But then when it comes to the bill, prices seem to be a bit unreasonable. Especially considering you are not in Nice or Martha's Vineyard, but just in Punta del Este. Personnel is acceptable, but not superb.

The food was yummy but small portions and SUPER expensive. The 25% discount with Itau card helped. Lovely place to sit though, right on the beach. Great service, no English spoken though. No kids meals options. We enjoyed our time but probably wouldn't go back because of the price.

Delicious fungi ravioli. The sauce has the flavor of smoked tomato. The starter was fried scampi, to share. A final Illy coffee was a must. Staff is professional. Restrooms are ok. The tables on the veranda, overlooking the sea, are the best. A tiny hill on the side stops a bit of the wind. Jack, a local bull dog touch,... More

Punta has so many attractions, but the beaches are the high point. When you go to the Brava Beach at Parada 20, you will be able to enjoy the beach and eat as best as you can at Mia Bistro. You just need to make a reservation as soon as you get to the beach. Then at the agreed time,... More

We had a great dinner here on Feb 4/15. The food was great & the staff very attentive. The location is stunning, right on the beach. Good value especially in comparison to other restaurants in the centre.

This is probably our best restaurant in Uruguay and the chef certainly knows how to prepare food bursting with flavour. The service is excellent not to mention the midday cocktails too. Its a winner for sure!!
