I know my comment will go opposite to others, but our experience was truly below expectations. Everything was perfect until the appetizers. The "chipirones a la plancha" was very tasteful. But the main dishes were a disaster... They came in less than 5 minutes what surprised us, because weren't dishes so quick to prepare. We order a crab-filled pasta with lemon sauce where the pasta was tasteless and chewy, the fill almost didnt exist and the sauce poorly done. The other plate was a "brolola" that carried the restaurants name, the brotola itself was hard, with spines and poor quality, the scallops on the sauce overdone. We left the place with a bitter taste in the mouth wishing we had the food experience other customers claimed they had. So the #7 place in Tripadvisor is misjudged in our perspective.

Slightly overprices but good choice on the menu and great location with views of the ocean. Good choice of wines, took one recommended by the waitress and wasnt disappointed.

I'll echo the other reviewer. We've spent 9 days in Uruguay so far, at some very nice places like the Four Seasons. We came across Guappa while wandering through Punta del Este and even though we didn't have reservations they were able to accommodate the two of us. This truly was the best dinner we've had in Uruguay. I had the salmon and the wife had the mushroom risotto, and both were spectacular. Service was very efficient and friendly, and the view of the sunset over the harbor was magnificent. Was also a treat to watch the other patrons, mostly from Argentina or Brazil during this holiday season - we were definitely underdressed, but no one seemed to care. The presumed owner spent a lot of wandering around and talking with patrons, and helping out when things got busy. That attitude says a lot. Prices were reasonable - and cheaper than a couple other places we had eaten at.

I had the best meal in Uruguay at Guappa. The fish with shrimps was just divine, really incredible. The white wine by the glass was great too.
It is expensive as everything else in Punta del Este, but still worth going!
