We ate there just a few days ago ,and loved it. We are familiar with Argentinian Parillas, so the sight of all that wonderful meat, sausage, intestines, etc. cooking on the incredible angled grill was enough to make our hearts beat faster!!! We were not disappointed...........we ordered only Vacio and Chorizo - no side orders of bread, salad or fries - why detract from the meat???!!! Nothing glamorous about the serving, but the taste was what mattered and it was incredible. The only thing we added was the chimichurri, which was excellent, especially with the crispy skin from the vacio. Beer and mineral water were our drinks of choice and sitting at the counter chatting with the cooks was fun. Highly recommend.

Stopped by mercado del puerto after a few days in punta del este on our way out of town. Great people watching. Great good. Nice portions. This place was busy and I always find that a good sign!

This is the place. Sit down order your meal and don't forget to order the side dishes other wise you will just end up with what you ordered. The steak was fabulous. Ask for some draft beer and take in the atmosphere while it is being served. Great friendly staff. Make sure you try the sauce/garnish that sits on the counter. It really does add to the flavour. The price was fine and they take most credit cards.

I sat at the bar and really enjoyed chatting with the friendly dudes working the grill. Excellent quality "pulpo" steak in fun and stimulating ambience.

This is the place to go if you want quality food! Take care because dishes are very well served! The restaurant accepts all kinds of credit cards and the staff is very helpful!

I'd suggest you take a seat close to the grill, this seems to be where locals chose to eat.
