I went to this restaurant with a couple that has a home in Punta del Este and they said they go there very often because of the good food and affordable prices. I found this the best restaurant of my 8 days stay in Punta.

We went to have dinner with some friends for the first time to this restaurant. It was a perfect experience from the beginning. We had a reservation and were seated right away. We were offered drinks and ordered a home made dip appetizer, together with their home made bread rolls. We could not stop eating. For the main course we... More

Not easy to find, but worth the trip in the outskirts of Punta del Este, close to La Barra, in a place called Manantiales. The place is unassuming, very friendly where you can take your pet (dog) and have him lay down beside the table. The food is very good, comparable to a french family restaurant you can find in...

This was our first night in Punta Del Este and we were very lucky to find this restaurant where we had a lovely meal. The atmosphere and ambience was a throw back to 1970s dining very intimate.

It is not easy to eat well in Punta del Este, as there are many opportunistic one season fashion restos. This is not the case as they are still providing good food through few years. Generous sizes dishes , good environmental and the waiters are great! You can choose from fish to Uruguayan meets. Need to book. I recommend the... More

Very good for couples, with delicious food (we had the Gnochhi and the Pescado) and great service. Also, it is one of the less expensive cool places in Punta, so go for it if your wallet is getting empty, but you still want to have a great time.

Don't be fooled by the size, this only means you need to book early as always full between Oct and Feb. Amazing food and atmosphere and set menu on Thursday. The mushroom risotto with osso bucco melted in my mouth and the homemade baclava is nearly worth the long flight down there. This is a must place to eat on... More

What a lovely restaurant! Small and therefore tables rather cramped in but that is easily forgotten because of the cozy ambiance. The food (I had the three course menu) is exceptionally tasty, the house wine (I tried the white one) paired well, and the service was kind and attentive. The timing of the courses worked well, never did I feel... More
