Great place for a younger crowd, good food and drinks it's a modern place with modern and hip music, I am not young but I enjoy the crowd and atmosphere, food and wine They also have a small and delicious place at the MVD airport

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!

First, great things going in favor include location, decor and menu options. However for the price and hype surrounding this place the service can be patchy ( have been here more than once), dishes can be inconsistent and drink orders can be messed up. All this makes me believe this place has same service levels as a medium priced restaurant.... More

The restaurant is exquisitely done with a perfect fine dining ambiance and is located in a quiet neighborhood of Carassco. We went here for a couple of drinks and appetizers. The cocktails were excellent and the food was absolutely delectable. The portions aren't that good but the appetizing food completely overrules it.

A very nicely decorated place in Carrasco. The menu is, like other places in Carrasco/Montevideo a bit out of focus. You can order from sushi to a peace of grilled meat. However the quality of the food and the service at this place is very nice. And must say that the sushi is one of the better I have eaten... More

You can have a great meal in a very cozy place with lounge music. Perfect combination. Many options and good waiters.

Had dinner here with colleagues (8.30 reservation) and ordered a big plate of sushi which was fresh and yummy. The service was ok, though they did bring the wrong dessert at first and getting the bill took about 30 minutes. Great atmosphere.
