“What a great experience!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

I can't say enough good things about La Huella. They take reservations, (unusual at such a popular beach spot). The location is amazing...right on the beach. The set-up is very casual, very nice. The food is delicious, but THE SERVICE IS OUTSTANDING! If the weather changes and it cools off, they have lovely wool ponchos for the customers who are sitting outside. And don't laugh...the rest room is amazing. Very clean, very zen and aromatic.

“The place to go, real Uruguay”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

This place, owned and attended by 2 members of old Uruguayan families, has become a great place to meet and be seen. Some say it's the best place in South America. It's a great location right on the beach and a it's unique mix of rustic decor and elegant shabby chic has great charm and fits the place perfectly, it's easy going, not overly expensive, with good service and nice staff. The owners are present almost always and I highly recommend it.

“Best lunch spot!”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

I loved La Huella for the atmosphere, people and quality of food! It is the most popular place in town, so I recommend making reservations, especially during the festive time around New Year's.
