“Nothing special”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We were not impressed by food or atmosphere--both were disappointing, making us wonder why it is so crowded each night.

“Nice restaurant that has been in Punta for many many years!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

This is like one of my favorite restaurants in Punta. The staff is really great. I love it when they make those incredibly simple but over the top delicious salads at your table (if you ask). It is also pricey, but hey, Punta is NOT a cheap place!

“Good but a litlle overpriced”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

The spacious and clean restaurant is a good choice for lunch/dinner with kids. It is a litlle overpriced when you compare with similars in Maldonado, but it is the price you pay for its location in the punta peninsula (remanso street). The parrilla (meat) and pastas are good choices.

“Friendly”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

Good dinner and not expensive. It worths a ride to Gorlero Street.

“White coat service, old-school feel”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

This is a classic parilla restaurant with a fantastic variety of delicious meat! Do not go here if you are a vegetarian or looking for seafood, as the restaurant is really best enjoyed if you enjoy the steak. Waiters wear white jackets and are very attentive - they have great food and wine recommendations, so be sure to ask them! The restaurant itself is quite "old-school" (lots of wood and outdated furniture) - has not been remodelled in many years, but this is classic of some of the best parilla restaurants in Argentina and Uruguay. You´ll be comforted that you are spending your money on good food and not on restaurant decor! :) Highly recommend!
