“Best Service in Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

We had lunch at Viejo Barrio. The food was good, the atmosphere was great - right in front of the church - and the service was the best we had in Uruguay.

“Good lunch spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

We needed a quick meal before our ferry and wanted something in the city center. We all had pasta which was good. I would go again in the future.

I had a ravioli the was not good at all... poor pasta and too much water in the dish. Couldn't wait to leave the place.

“Nice but you can do better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

Everyone was at The Drugstore next door, which should have been our first clue. Perhaps it was an off night, but all seemed quite average, so head to Marlo or La Casa de Jorge Paez Vilaro instead, if you want a great meal. Or maybe The Drugstore, which we didn't try, but was busy each time we walked by.

“Good food and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2012

Went to Santa Rita the night before and paid too much for a very ordinary meal. Here the lomo was excellent and my wfe had garlic chicken which was tender and tasty. Both meals were accompanied by chips - but the best part of the experience was the 2004 Reserve Tanat, a delicious fruity red wine!
