Description: Las Rocas Resto is a small restaurant located in the main street of La Paloma just opposite the casino. After our first summer season we are well recognized for our handmade pasta, delicious south american meat and our fresh local fish. Our clients have been coming back over and over and we are always glad to welcome them with the biggest smile! For those who would like to adventure the cold winter in the uruguayan coast and have a nice meal by the fireplace, we're open all year round!

This is one of the two better restaurants in La Paloma, definitely worth a visit. The food is creative, fresh and full of flavour. All our meals were exceptional. Offered more than the usual PIzza and Pasta options of Uruguayan restaurants.

First time I have been to a number 1 rated restaurant in a town and it did not disappoint. Really nice setting for a meal out just off the main drag. Big portions available and the Milanese and fish we ordered were very tasty. The service is also good and the rare dips on offer pre meal make it an all round winner!

The manager became highly irritated when, as a result of the loudness we moved from a table under the speakers to one located further away. There was no one else at the restaurant at the time. She approach us and was unnecessarily rude and accusatory, obviously having a bad day herself. It was a hot day and it appeared as she had had enough of people in general. Very unpleasant experience, in particular when they charge $12 dollars for a salad alone.

This lady came by herself, so when she talks about "us", this would be the first LIE.
She arrived early at mid day, our first customer, so we put on the music, as we usually do when the service starts. The speaker was incredibly loud for some reason and I automatically lower it.
This gave her a second to stand up and speak in a very rude way to our waitress that couldn´t be nicer and tell her we were sorry and that we could even lower the music or turn it off if she needed to, unless till a few more customers arrive.
The lady (I repeat she was by herself), spoke in such a ban manner that I decided to step up for my waitress. I went out and repeated we could turn off the music, but there was no need to speak to Lucía, the waitress, in such a bad tone.
Of course she argued with be and spoke even in a more rude way and finally left without paying for the soda she was having (i really don´t mind, but since she had the nerve to lie in the comment, I won´t allow any more of this)
I should have been more patient and tried to get this lady to the end of her lunch satisfied and with a smile as we always do. I was actually having a perfectly nice day, but this lady made us have the WORST experience since we opened the restaurant.
"I´ve never EVER been treated like that"...words of my waitress. (please view other comments to check out how nice they are on the eyes of normal customers).

Small restaurant with open kitchen. Try the extraordinary fish or choose out of the special dishes. They serve warm bread first, with special dips in very good quality.
