The food here is overpriced and very average. Too noisy as well. Had a burger that was average at best and half my chips were not properly cooked and raw in the middle. My wife's stuffed chicken was dry. Over thirty quid on something I...More

We went to El Tranquilo after the theater. It was Saturday night and they were sold out of several menu options. For example, they didn't have pizza anymore! Or, why would you offer Gin Tonic when you don't have a simple soda like tonic? Only...More

Food is good, and the location is great for people watching. Nice place to chill in the afternoon. The cuts of beef are always good quality.

Good pizza, some popular wines. Good to a casual dinner. Don't expect something luxurious or elaborated.

Very friendly service, local dishes (try Gramajo and Chivito). Nice pub, sometimes crowded. You will not find international cuisine here. Sometimes music is a bit loud for my taste. A few blocks from the seaside, it is the place to drink a cold beer in...More

The menu is not large, but does have choices of sandwiches and a few salads. Some desserts that I didn't try. Good place to order a beer or wine and sit . Open most of the day into the night.

If you want to enjoy a place where you can enjoy chilled beer, fresh salads and super sandwiches, that's the place. On top on it, you'll also learn a bit of the spanish rock bands around Uruguay. Prices are quite compatible with similar places in...More

If you're in the area, and need a chevitos lunch or a beer break, this is a fine spot, but don't let the name fool you: its a corner-bar with a playlist of Gypsy Kings on 'eleven'. Good sized serves at a reasonable price.
