One of the most attractive restaurants for meat meals. Good service and elegant atmosphere complete the offer.

I had the eggplant with goat cheese as starter and the porterhouse steak with the best tannat available by the glass. While the meal was ok, and the waitress providing a very good service. I was very surprised by the bill. I found the price for value much inadequate. I will not go back.

Enjoyed our time here. Staff are polite and food good. Service better than most for Montevideo, where it can be awful. Will go again as we live close by and definately a good option. Just felt that it could have been that much better with just a little more effort. However that didn't distract from a good dining experience.

We had a great meal here. The service was friendly and efficient. My 'cowboy' steak was huge, and my wife's salmon was excellent too. Prices are fairly high, but overall well worth a visit. Remember to pay by foreign credit card to get an immediate 18% discount off your bill !

Service in MVD is lacking, but La Casa Violeta is a welcome exception. The meat is fantastic, cooked perfectly and the wine is reasonably priced. Salad bar is ok, the real star is the meat. Q colleague also had a really delicious ravioli.

Very nice location and great views, especially at sunset. The personnel is "kinda" friendly. Not like you experience around the regular restaurants in MvD. We ordered a nice bottle of local red wine and it was not in stock. They offered another one, which was good and even a little less expensive. We ordered Cowboy steak, filet Mignon and a... More

This restaurant is very nice and somewhat expensive. However, the entire meal from the wine list to the desserts delivered an amazing meal. The restaurant overlooks the water, so ask for a table near the window.
