I was there in a very visible place for about 20 minutes before another server realized I had been ignored. She was excellent. I inky had a cafe con crema (excellent) and a water, so I cannot rate the food. Great location.

colorful, friendly excellent staff, the food was great, homemade, we stopped by twice, for lunch and hot chocolate at night,....
if you are looking for a trendy tidy place with great furniture: you are in the wrong place, food is great and the colorful unusual decoration (with flea market like furniture, posters, paintings, polka dots tablecloth, colorful paper napkins.) calls your curiosity.... don't miss the old cars parked outside, be careful if you are going to take a picture of you sitting inside
you might have a hard time getting out of it.. the price is very reasonable. Is located across the Basilica, in the old town

So-So food, absolutely horrible service. We came here because it was recommended in Lonely Planet. It has a lot of potential and a good interior but food was average the the service was pretty bad. We literally tried to wave down the servers for 3 mins for water... And we were the only people dining in the restaurant. Even the cooks got upset with the servers after trying to flag them down themselves! It's a shame, because the atmosphere was cool, and had we ordered something other than sandwiches, the food would have probably been better too.

The restaurant is in a great location, nice soothing Spanish music. The menu has tons of selections and also in English, Spanish and Portuguese which was thoughtful! The food is all home made style just like how your mom would make it at her own kitchen, so don't expect to be michelin star, and also get used to the South American culture and don't expect for the food come quick, because it won't! And it only except cash!!!

We just stopped in for a quick coffee/snack with family. The service was extremely slow. The prices seemed above the odds for what they were serving. I ordered the mate and alfajores. Maybe it's just the way Uruguayos do it, but the mate was packed so full that you could barely get any water in it and you couldn't get anything through the bombilla the yerba was so tightly packed. We were glad that we moved on elsewhere for lunch.
