Dueto is one of the finest restaurants in Montevideo, located in the heart of the old city. The building is an old structure originally built as a police station (the underground cells are the toilets now) and later was used for dwelling, artisans’ shops and a tannery before becoming a restaurant, owned by Marcela Besada. Decoration is simple but cozy, the brick walls and ceilings are not plastered and show its age, which makes the atmosphere even more pleasant. As for the food, the choice is varied and the presentations always very delicate. I tried the carpaccio a la bresaola, a fish filet with olive oil and fine herbs, and as dessert I enjoyed the crepes with bananas and dulce de leche ice cream flamed with rum. Very nice. For privacy in group lunchs, the upper floor is great.
