Went here with friends and had a great time. Both seafood and meat was good and the wine that accompanied it excellent.

I have been twice and have enjoyed my lunch both times but it is an expensive restaurant so be aware. It is not an expansive menu but what they have is tasty.

This is a very popular restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating. The service is first class and they have staff who can speak English. The food is excellent and very well presented, especially the baked salmon on capers and onions which was delicious. They have an good wine list and both local and imported brands.

The pros: open earlier than many restaurants, lots of seating, nice atmosphere, very helpful and attentive waitress. The food was pretty good. We all got something we liked, but no one was crazy about any of the dishes. The menu online is deceptive- makes it look like gourmet Asian. It's really an international blend with all sorts of dishes, none... More

Despite being a pleasant restaurant with good service, the green chicken curry I ordered was so salty it was inedible. They promised to do a new dish but when it came it was obvious that it was the same food, watered down to reduce the saltiness and then thickened. I ate it so as not to spoil the evening for...

Very nice environment, nice staff and good food, but a very disappointing moment when we asked for the bill. The restaurant charges $17 for a couple just for the starters they bring in to table without any prior offer and regardless if you ordered it or not. It was the most expensive piece of bread I ever had in my... More

This place is something special. It has a great atmosphere, a good drink selection and a nice menu. The service was fantastic, the waitress answered questions, gave suggestions and helped us out making our selections. The steaks were cooked perfectly to order and were super tender and very tasty. Desert was really good too. This was a great experience. If... More

There are lots of good options for meat in Montevideo but this one was my favorite. We ate here twice in a 2 week span. My favorite dish was the lamb with blue cheese gnocchi. Hands down the best lamb I have ever had. If you try it you will be glad you did.

Went with a group of couples, Friday night. Although expensive, quite expensive, food is really good and the ambient is another high point. Good offer of beers from the world, good sushi, beef, pork or fish. Don't forget to leave room for dessert!
