Restaurant located in the charming shopping Punta Carretas. We had dinner there on a Friday, the restaurant was packed, but we had a good service and quickly managed in a table. It was birthday of a friend, a couple who accompanied us on the trip. The restaurant provided a small cookie to celebrate her birthday. We ate pasta. The wine... More

Usually don't eat in chains while travelling, but this was suggested by friends as a meeting point. Eight people, had lunch. All the dishes were mediocre at best. The chivitos were cold, on supermarket hamburger buns, clearly had sat on the refrigerator for awhile. The pizza was frozen pizza, reheated. Pasta tasteless. Service very slow. Lots of good options in... More

It looks dirty ...in all corners ...they don't have good or steady help , so nobody cares .....and the food is not good and here I always thought you can't do much harm to a pizza ...they manage to do just that !

I still wonder how this restaurants chain still survives considering the very bad service and poor food quality. I guess that is becasue of the location of their stores, but honestly, my advice is to avoid it and find a decent place to eat.....and for the record....even though I live in London, I am Uruguay, I know Don Peperone quite...

This review is for the location at the Puerto de Punta de Este. I made the mistake of stopping for lunch yesterday during one of the stops of my Montevideo-PDE tour bus. Although I was the first to order, my meal (a simple chivito canadiense) took over 30 minutes (in fact closer to 45 min) to be ready and two... More

A food chain that does not seem to compare very well in relation to European standards. Whilst the food was okay it was expensive for what we paid for and it lacked in quality. Would not visit again.

I liked the food but the service have some delay. I liked the port vist. In summer is best to eat into the restaurant a not in their front because you will have a very hot place.

The ambiance was pretty good, and the food was good, but it was a bit expensive for what you got. Then again, everything is that way in Punta del Este.

After sitting for about 5 minutes a server finally came by to take our order (and the place was totally empty). We ordered a burrito plate and a fajita plate. The food was actually just fine, we were so excited to eat some Mexican cuisine. The fajita was just like the burrito (onions, peppers, and chicken wrapped in a tortilla)... More
