It is hard to get a good lunch in Punta del Este this time of year. My friend and I rarely order pasta. We were impressed with both the pasta and the sauce at Punta Salina. He ordered Espagetti con Frutas de Mar. He noticed...a generous amount of seafood in the sauce. I had Espagetti con boloñesa, and mine was meaty and perfectly seasoned. I highly recommend. We have been there for dinner several times and always enjoyed the French cut lamb. Our server paid full attention to us and didn't interrupt our meal. Excellent experience in all ways.More

Punta Del Este doesn't have many good restaurants. We were recommended to a restaurant near Punta Salina but the place was closed. We decided to try Punta Salina and gotta say it was one of the best meals I've had in the area. The staff...is great and very friendly. Food from the bread to the apps to the meal were really good. Very good selection of wine. Highly recommend this place. Well priced too.More

I got to know this place the year it opened more than two years ago. Back then, I loved the food and its particular great service. Juan, one of its owners, welcomed me as if I were a friend or like part of a circle...of close neighbors. Two years on this February, I happily found the place had not changed but for the better. The same great quality food, service and attention to the detail. I cannot underestimate the value of such a personal touch Juan brings to the place. I cannot foresee the same without him. Thank you very much Juan from Buenos Aires!!!! JoseMore

My husband and I were greeted by the owner who spoke English and made us feel welcomed with a complementary uraguan drink. The restaurant has a very comfortable feel to it with an open kitchen, bar and soccer game on the TV. We each had...the tenderloin brochette and mashed potatoes which were fantastic. The owner than offered us a limoncello to finish our meal. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.More

We went to Punta Salina for a dinner. My daughter chose a chicken skewer, and had a big smile on her face during the entire meal. My mother chose a steak, perfectly cooked. My wife went for a salad, and was very happy with it....My asado de tira was by far the best of the ones I tasted during our visit to Uruguay, and I tried quite a few! The service was super, and also included a welcome drink. Great price/value!More

Punta Salina is a lovely restaurant where lots of locals eat. They brought a complimentary local drink similar to a sparkling wine, also a little bite like potatoes au gratin. We had Caesar Salad ( olives in it), grilled vegetables which came on a hot...plate, and 2 different types of ravioli. The service was perfect. We’re from the US and the prices were moderate. Definitely would go back.More

I loved my dinner here! Extremely attentive service from the owner who seems to want to really take care of you in every possible way, from the complimentary welcome drinks and small starters to the great advice and prompt service. The food was amazing, high...quality prepared to perfection. We had ravioli which are homemade and you can tell!!! Lomo with homemade french fries and rosted peppers. The meat is to die for and the owner tries to read your mind to cook it perfect as you desire! Lastly, it was not even expensive! Thank you!More
