We heard really good things about this restaurant from Lonely Planet so we decided to have dinner there. The restaurant is not oceanfront - it is about a block away. The restaurant was severely understaffed because our poor waiter was running around maintaining both the outside and inside tables - keep in mind this was high season at Punta Del Este.

It took several attempts for us to get our orders in. By the time we ordered, some of the pasta choices ran out. We ended ordering the pailla and a white fish dish. The food ended up being somewhat bland.

There may be better places to go in Punta Del Este.

On the main oceanfront road just north of La Barra, very casual, with a nice outside deck with umbrellas, good views of the ocean. Excellent seafood, especially the local brotola (also called Lochas), a succulent white fish served with wok vegetables. Delicious! Salmon is excellent also, as is garlic shrimp. They also have a variety of sandwiches and salads, some decent wines and plenty of beer. It's not cheap, but hey, nothing is in Punta.

We've tried the branch located at Manariales. Service is nice and friendly. Lunch menu offer is inbeatable! Delicious, huge portions at a modest price -- including wine!

Familiar, private and with a great fish quality. The salmon is excellent. You have many choices to eat fish or meat if you want. Kind attention. Very recommendable.

My wife and I ate here on 4/18/13 prior to a concert at the casino. We arrived early, about 8 PM, and were the first people there.

Alejandro was our server, and while he spoke little engligh, he was very helpful and allowed us to taste the house wine, which we passed on in favor of another suggestion (which was awesome!)

The food was very good, and the service excellent! when we were ready to leave, we asked for a photo of the chefs & Alejandro, and they gladly obliged!
