Update on Restaurants in Ciudad Vieja.

Ituzaingo crosses the main drag of Sarandi at the top end of Plaza Matriz where the cathedral is. If you turn right from Sarandi into Ituzaingo, past the cathedral, cross over the Rincon, half way down the next block you will find Brazilero, supposedly the oldest restaurant in Montevideo. I haven´t made it there yet, but my friends tell me it´s very good.

Across the road from Brazilero at number 1434 you will find Cafe Santoral. It´s a lunch time place, mainly for takeaways, with a drinks fridge and not much decor, but it does have a couch setting and a few tables. We happened upon it because it was the only place open during Santa Semana week.

Here we found excellent food for extremely low cost. I ordered a meat and vegie dish, and the meat was unusually tender. My girl friend had the seafood paiella which was also yummy, and our friends ordered quich and salad, also really nice. With drinks our bill came to 250 pesos (US$12.50) for the two of us, and same for our two friends.

The girl running it gave good service, was very friendly and as a bonus spoke reasonable English. Definitely the best value in town, my only reservation about Santoral is that the decor is very ordinary. But it´s half the price of the other restaurants I´ve reviewed, and the food in most cases is probably just as good.
