I walked past this restaurant a couple of times because I didn't get it. Being new to Uruguay, I new little of their cuisine or culture. But after a couple of days, I dined here with 8 other people, aged 12 to 80, and magically, the staff made us all happy and well fed. Now, I am kicking myself for having average meals, when I could have been eating here, all along. They generously have a cork service, so we brought our own wine. Then, making us the worst customers on earth, we each ordered something different. But 9 fabulous entrees came out, perfectly. I wholeheartedly
suggest you dine here.

Punta del Este is outrageously expensive right now, but Asado y Milonga was a remarkable exception. The place is really no frills, with wooden benches to sit on, but delivers very good meat at a very reasonable price.
We were a party of 4, and both the charbroiled lamb rack and the rumpsteak (bife de chorizo) were delicious.
So were the grilled vegetables that came with the meat, the fries, and the grilled morcilla (black pudding) and chorizo (sausage) that we ordered for starters.
The service was very friendly and made an obvious effort to please us.
The only downside was the fact that they don't take cards of any sort, wich is not clearly advertised...
We didn't have enough cash, but they very relaxed about it and we simply agreed to get cash at an ATM and drop by later on, which we did.

Me and my fiancee had an amazing dinner at Asado Y Milonga.

The menu offers many variations of Uruguyas finest meat.
We both ordered the Vacio' and it was the best we had in Uruguay for a long time.
Perfectly made and very tastefull after being a bit picky when been in Buenos Aires for two months and only ordered meat from day one.)

Good wine options!

And the service was superp!
So friendly and relaxed. "Not far from a Michelin rated restaurant"
They even offered to drive us to the hotel after the dinner.

Definitely a must in Punta del Este!

When the other optional restaurants in town are very overpriced and not really any good.
( Have tried several different ones around the harbour)



Kind regards

Good parilla, decent prices, good tango music playing in the background. Central location. Polite service.

Came to Punta del Este on vacation with a friend, we are staying here for 19 days so we've been able to spend alot of time eating out.

Asado y Milonga was the first restaurant we visited by pure luck, the staff here is very friendly and their food is delicious. They treat you like family or like a good friend so even if you just want to have a beer its a great place to visit

I highly recommend this to everyone for price, food and staff!
