One of my favourite places around Punta del Este. Only handicap it is outside and you have to drive to La Barra - a highly touristic place. But there it is just at the beginning of the village, so you want have problems with traffic. The restaurant is absolutely sensationell. Coys atmosphere in a wonderful garden. The food is excellent and the owner knowing anybody is real charming. Very good service and the music - selected by the owner - gives a marvelous atmosphere. Just one negative point. On some tables the light is not very good!. But even, if you have problem to recognize the food, the dishes are on a top level!

We decided to have dinner at this place since we stayed next door at Casa Zinc (just two blocks away). We did not regret. The menue is short and simple which makes it is easier to choose from. Our food - ravioles con cordero; salmon con hojas verdes - was superb. The waiter and the owner both were very friendly.

The atmosphere of the place is great as well, low hanging ceilings, lots of wood and a lit fireplace.

All in all: this place comes highly recomended

We got suggestions that this restaurant is a must visit on our trip to Punta del Este. They were right. Just tucked away in La Barra, the ambience of this place if great and very unexpected given the location. We felt like we came to a restaurant more for locals than tourists, which we loved. The menu is small and the food excellent. As we are early birds, we got there at 9 PM. When we left the restaurant was packed, better book in advance when you visit Punta and La Barra next!

We were advised to have diner in this hidden from the main road restaurant on our arrival to Punta del Este in La Barra and we did not make a mistake of coming here. Very cosy, laid back place with a great selection of local wines and good interesting food. There is very cute garden to seat, with lot of candles and bric-a-brac to look at. Recommend it!
