Description: For 70 years the vision of the immigrant Basque Ascension Iturria is repeated; the best dishes..., In the best place. With a perfect view of the Harbor, Mariskonea is renewed. Our classic dishes flavored Basque acquired the unique taste that only experts in fish and shellfish, can bring. Those who know Punta del Este, knows the quality of Mariskonea.

My wife and I were enjoying a 21 day Antarctica cruise onboard the beautiful and luxurious MS Zaandam, we left the ship at 12:06 aboard a tender boat and then it started to rain. We found shelter in this place and talk about delicious food!! My wife had the steak and I had fish and we left smiling! Also great wi-fi!

I had been to the original Mariskonea in years past, previously located on the brava beach. While I was excited to try this new location, nine years later...i was cautiously optimistic. What a thrill to find it was the original owners, granddaughter and daughter who had opened, with the original recipes! The service was excellent, the food was to die for...we had the chipirones, and then a few different varieties of fish, and the arroz con mariscos...everything was great! The prices were quite reasonable for the quality and fantastic location! Thank you for reopening this Punta "classic"

Mariskonea was the most famous fish restaurant in Punta del Este in the 70´s, now per fortune it has returned managed by the nephew of the original owners and I found that the quality remains the same and the new location and service are very good. They still offer the famous menu of the ancient restaurant, and it is a place I shall return, although their prices in winter could be a little bit lower

The daughter of the original owner has reopened MARISKONEA- a local Fish restaurant..
It was recommended by our hotel.
We had Mussels in a cream sauce to start---which arrived out of shells and served like a soup--sadly Frozen Mussels.
A local fish is presented in so many ways we had difficulty in choosing.
We requested 2 glasses of Sparkling wine--the restaurant did not do this.
We were assured by our waiter that in line with other restaurants out Tax would be refunded to our credit cards--now after 5 days still no refund.
This is shameful--as a result u are getting just 1 star.
The restaurant was full of people who wanted to be seen as for them it was now an in place to dine !!!!!!!!!

Hello Sr., I remember offer you two bottle of fine wine and you reject my offer.
If you do not recieved the tax , please contact your bank or your credit card sevice, because this thing is exclusive resposability of the uruguayan goberment not my restaurant.
I try explain in italian and english, my country does not make sparkling wine like Piamont, and my priority regarding wine in my restaurant is show to the european tourist our terroir, not bring piamonte wines..
please, recieve my apologies for this terrible experience... and i will be ready for recieve you and your friend in my restaurant the next time.
all the best for you !!!
