Reviewed December 1, 2013

You can't go wrong here, the meats are great and so is the service you will not be disappointed. I would highly suggest this restaurant on any trip to Punta.

“Very good food and excellent service at decent prices!”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

We actually went to this restaurant twice, as it was that phenomenal the first time. The menu is simple, focused on grilled meat that comes in big quantities! The staff is extremely friendly and the steaks were fantastic the first time and the mixed grilled meats were very good the second time. On top of everything, prices are very reasonable, so this restaurant is highly recommendable.

“The best in Punte Del Este”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

If you want great grilled meats at a great price with amazing service, then don't miss this place! We have been trying all the most highly rated restaurants on Trip Advisor, and most are trying to be fancy while serving average food at a high price. At La Milonguera (Asado y Milonga) the atmosphere is comfortable, the food is delicious (and one of the few places in town that does not over cook beef), and the price is very
reasonable. We ordered a mixed plate of meats and grilled vegetables - beef, pork, chicken, lamb, and two types of sausage, along with some delicious vegetables. Everything is grilled over wood in their open kitchen. The restaurant only takes cash, so upon arriving I asked if there was a cash machine nearby. Apparently not, but the owner invited us in for a meal and said we could borrow his car or he would show us to a cash machine after dinner! Now that is service! (We ended up paying in a combination of Uruguayan and Argentinian pesos.) I highly recommend this place for dinner in Punte Del Este.

“Simplemente PERFECTO! Simply PERFECT!”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

My friend and I were in Uruguay for about a week (including Montevideo) and ran into this place. Wondeful food! I am not sure what we got (I believe the half chicken) and the sides were delicious too! Small spot with great atmosphere and for sure a good time. Definitely recommend this!
