“Snack bar in the middle.”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

situsted in the middle of the city, and next to the fountain whose fence is full of locks. Inside is a snack-bar style restaursnt, with good fluffy pizzas. They serve all kinds of local specialties.Its location is walking distance (10 minutes) from the Independence Sq, and is surrounded by tourist shops. The Movistar highrise faces you as you ealk, and this pkace will be on yourleft.

“Coffee”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

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

“For coffee or dinner”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

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.

“Very expensive, not worth it.”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

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.
