“Good Food, Good View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Our meal at Verazon started with warm French bread and pimento butter (the only restaurant in Uruguay we encountered that warmed the bread). I ordered the brutal (a local cod-like fish) Basque style and received a generous-sized and very fresh fillet. It was a great relief from the meat fest of other Punta restaurants. The brutal is available in many preparations and sauces from Ur$400 to 475 (US$20 to 24). My wife had the pumpkin ravioli with olive oil, fresh rosemary and Parmesan cheese, another excellent dish (Ur$355 or US$18). The almond and pear tart (Ur$150 or US$7.50) and a couple of cappuccinos were also great. The food was not "gourmet," just fresh food that was prepared simply but well. The decor is modern and upscale, with indoor and outdoor dining areas overlooking the harbor. Service was prompt by Uruguay standards and we were offered English-language menus.

“Nice view; that's it!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

Service was the worst we had in Uruguay. It tool forever just to get a menu. Food was average. If you are looking for just a view, eat here. Otherwise, skip it!

“Amazing view & seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

The view is amazing at this restaurant. You can go just for tapas if you do not want to have dinner. They do have menus in English. When I was there we had wine & tapas which were excellent! Tapas are around $15 US depending on what your order. I enjoyed just sitting outside while snacking on tapas & sipping on wine!

“Beatufil ocean view and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

This was the first place we went in Punta. We were starving and could have a better place to have the first meal. The food is really good. We were in 5 people and nobody was disappointed with the food. The best of all is that you can enjoy this very good food, drinking a nice white wine and enjoying a great view. The service is also very. In summary, if you come to punta you have to go to this place.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

The view is good, but our dishes lacked flavour and the service was slapdash. There are two adjacent restaurants ... Why not try them instead ...
