Expensive and poor quality. Very disappointed Ordered sole fish and they told me it was fresh and took them only 10 min to prepare The atmosphere was just decadent

On a business trip to Montevideo, I decided to go eat at La casa Violeta. It was recommended to me by the hotel. They have a good choice of meat and the quality of my entrecote was excellent as was my glass of red wine. However, the total ambiance did not meet the quality expectations set by the price in...

I was there twice and each time it was a good experience. The food was exceptional, especially the rich salad bar stole my heart. The interior is very elegant, yet cozy and the service was just fantastic! Highly recommended!

Think from my experience, one of the best Restaurants near Montevideo, just a few kmts from the center by the sea. Is a familiar place run by them and vey well know , for local people , due their great food and treatment from the Team working there.

If you like the beef then you need to go there. There are a kind of good vibes there, I don't know, but I like to take lunch or dinner there every time I'm at Montevideo.

Like a true American I rolled into this place in jeans and a t-shirt! It's a little fancy (which the hotel failed to mention) so this was def inappropriate but they weren't too busy so they let it slide. That's good service. This was the best meal I had in Montevideo. I had the sole with almond cream sauce and... More

The meat is excellent ! It is a really good place to eat uruguayan meat and "asado", but in a fancy way and in a nice place. I go a lot with my boyfriend and we both love it ! Also it has a great coastal view, and you can walk at the Rambla afterwards.

After reviewing so many barbecue restaurants, I thought I'd seen the best, but this restaurant has no comparison. It is a bit pricy but the quality is the best I've seen so far. The service is also superior. It is so good that I have to try it two days in a row before I go back home. First time,... More

Went with a large group about 10-12 people in total. We had the room upstairs which has a casual seating area with coaches and then a large table. We started in the casual area with starters. Croquettes, calamari, and antipasto platter. Along with some Uruguayan wine. The service was great there and during the meal. The wine was flowing. There... More

We have been to this restaurant for dinner on 01Jun2016. Food is regular and wines overpriced (ex.: a Familia Deicas Preludio Barrel Select Lote 92 2009 was USD 29,58 more expensive at this restaurant than at the wine store). I had brownie with vanilla ice cream for dessert, but the brownie was too dry. The espresso was not good. I... More
