Description: La esquina en donde funciona FACAL ha estado relacionada con la gastronomía desde 1882, fue fábrica de chocolates y dulce de membrillo. Se encuentra ubicado en una zona privilegiada dentro del Centro de Montevideo, siendo el lugar de encuentro para negocios, compras y turistas. En nuestra esquina se encuentra la FUENTE DE LOS CANDADOS, el punto más fotografiado del Centro de Montevideo. Contamos con un menú ejecutivo que dispone de platos no incluidos en la carta y que varían en cuanto a ingredientes y nacionalidades originales. Facal es de los pocos restaurantes que ofrecen una amplia variedad de churros, waffles y helados caseros. Además de los clásicos platos, como CHIVITOS, PIZZAS, MILANESAS, entre otros. Ofrecemos un SHOW de TANGO gratuito de lunes a sábados al mediodía en el frente al local (13:30 aproximadamente). A su vez te puedes sacar una foto con CARLOS GARDEL que se ubica en el deck, al lado de donde se baila Tango.

Went here to have a coffee and overall it was a good experience. The Fuente de los Candados is just a few metters away.

Facal is a mix of restaurant, snack bar, pizzeria and cafe, located at the corner of Avenida 18 de julho e Rua Yi in front of the famous fountain of padlocks.
It is a nice place to go with friends or family to a coffee or dinner.
Excellent service too.

As part of my family from Brazil was visiting Montevideo for some days, we decided to remember old times and eat something at Facal.
The only positive thing is that the waiter was very nice to us.
First, we all ordered shawarma and for its description on the menu we were all wondering whether we were going to be able to finish it or not... To our astonishment the "pita" bread was no bigger than 4 inches in diameter and the filling had nothing to do neither with a real shawarma nor with what the menu described.
Another surprise was that one of the glasses was not properly washed (it had lipstick marks on it).
Now, we are back at home ordering something for dinner after having spent U$D 100 for something similar to half a sandwich.
I don't recommend this place at all. For the same amount you can eat very well in other restaurants at Montevideo downtown.

Came here for dessert and some drinks. Dessert was nothing special. Cocktails didn't have much alcohol and way too much sugar on everything. Do not recommend this place and will not be going back.
