We were forced to escape the sand that the strong winds blew on the beach and literally ran into this place that provided some shelter with their white canvas temporarily set up walls on the outside terrace. Normally it is heaving with wannabes and the likes but as it was a windy day it was perfect for a quick sandwich that was delicious though very overpriced. Coffee was wonderful too. The place could have been cleaner and staff more attentive. I will defenitely not stop by on a sunny day as people literally hang off the veranda and end up drinking on the sand too just outside it with staff not doing their job properly. I would imagine it is quite enjoyable in large groups, though has become a bit commercial for my like.

Great for lunch, for people watching. Hard to get reservations. But once you are there, a wonderful spot to eat, talk to people, drink carpinochas and have great fish. Best - you are right on the beach with pristine sand and great waves.
A bit hard to get to as it is at the end of Punta del Este in Jose Ignacio but once you get to Jose Ignzcio it is easy to find.

What a surprise this gem of a restaurant was! After living in South America for over 3 years, this is one of the best dining experiences I have had here. Food, service, atmosphere and setting...it is all world class!

One of my favourite places in the world to have lunch/dinner by the sea is this restaurant, where glamour, quality food and location are combined exquisitely, during season book in advance!

This is were you want to be if you like fashion, celebs, great sushi (and other), eating in a cool and boho chic ambiance while staring out at the ocean.
This is an amazing restaurant and they throw the best new Year's eve party every year!
Best kept secret: they own a piece if island on which they can set a few tables on the sand, boat VIPs from the land, and organise beautiful candle lit dinners!
