If you're looking for fresh octopus or any other Uruguayan delicacy, this is your spot! We had a sublime afternoon sipping the white sangria and munching tapas as the surf rolled in. It's an easy walk along the promenade by the ocean and our waiter was kind and attentive, Muy Romantico!

We wandered in to Boca Chica for a late lunch. Our server was excellent and we all really enjoyed our meals. The pasta and traditional steak sandwich were particularly good.

It is amazing there are few good places to eat a good Uruguayan meat in Punta del Este. This restaurant is another proposal but very unprofessional. The staff is insufficient and so do not satisfy the client. When I visited the restaurant there was no beer. Could anybody imagine parrilla uruguaia and no beer?

We had been to this place before but under a different name and managment. We were invited to a birthday celebration and were seated at a table for 23 people, and normally you dont get to eat well, but to our surprise, the quality of the meat was superb. I guess it has to do with the expectations you have.... More

We went to Boca Chica late on a week night for a bite to eat, and a beer. It`s on the Punta beachfront close to the marina - look for the anchors as per the photo and it`s close by. Although the beach-side tables are reserved for diners, a space was made for us by the helpful staff. Boca Chica... More

Very well located, friendly staff, fresh food for an adequate price for Punta del Este standards in the summer. Can recommend. Not luxury or gourmet food, no attention to details and personalized service, a bit noisy, but again, amazing location and good casual food

Staff is quite professional, and ready to help. Food is OK, especially the salads. The bread basket is normal. There are tables on the front, and they can be used even in winter, in sunny days.
