Wonderful pizzas in every combination imaginable. Priced reasonable and great service. Get a streetside table for the local ambiance.

Being the Uruguayan version of a diner, one can expect the usual: a menu made up entirely of milanesas, chivitos, pizza, and the usual odd menu item one does not dare to try; grumpy-looking old waiters, flimsy chairs and old facilities. However, keep in mind the purpose of your visit - in and out dining.

The service is decent, so long as you find sarcastic jokester waiters. Drinks are extraordinarily expensive (common denominator for diners in MVD).

However, there is much to rescue. The Manchester has some of the best pizza to be found in Centro/Ciudad Vieja. Be sure to ask for muzzarela, otherwise no cheese.

In a city filled with charming, exceedingly friendly people my server at this restaurant couldn't have been more unpleasant. She had no interest in serving me, never brought water (apparently because I asked for it from the tap, not bottled), and I wished I could've gotten up and left after placing my order. The food was good, but there are plenty of decent Chivitos in this city with much friendlier service. Look elsewhere.

(Also, as others have mentioned, dirty old bathrooms with no soap or hand sanitizer to be found)

It's a diner, so slow service and crumbs on tables.

Still, the Manchester Chivito (steak sandwich) is a must. Huge serving with chips. It's a national dish and rightly so.

If you're up for an informal lunch, this is the place.
