Amidst unnoticed streets lies this cozy and atmospheric bar. A couple of tables outside and a couple inside, one could be forgiven if not noticing it at a glance. But just observe the crowd for a while and you will crave for a piece of...More

Great food, the lentejas were delicious, came with slices of warm crunchy bread and a glass of red wine. Plus, a cool relaxed atmosphere. A must in Montevideo

My gf and I sat on the patio for a couple drinks. Very small local spot. I had a great Uruguay beer that was recommended. See the pic. My gf enjoyed her gin and soda which was garnished with fresh strawberries. Nice, friendly staff

We continue to enjoy Candy Bar. Good brunch on the weekends. The food is consistently fresh and well-prepared on sight by the owner. Service is super friendly and eager to please. It´s small, so get there early.
