I used to eat at the old location Markisonea had in Punta del este and since they opened the new location I´ve been a regular on every summer vacation. The owners are always there to greet you upon arrival, they supervise everything is well served and in timely manner. The food is delicious and still conserving the taste it used... More

As always Mariskonea is one of the best places in Punta del Este. Lunch or dinner is always excellent. This time, once more, the " Corvina a la Vasca" and the Chipirones were the most. One more benefit is added for this coming season, a special discount with the Banco de Galicia's card. Do not miss it !

The restaurant had great decor, excellent service and the owner himself was extremely welcoming and helpful. I ordered some calamari rings and a salad but the portion size of the calamari portion was much smaller than I expected for the price so I had to order an additional fish fish in order to be full. The food was good but... More

As usual, every time I go to Punta del Este, I dine at Mariskonea. This time I made several reservations even by mail, and asking for a special menu. Everything as expected and even better. Be sure to make a reservation, as this restaurant is always full and opens in Punta del Este from December till the end of February.... More

Agree with all the reviews rating with restaurant as excellent. Stumbled upon this gem and we were not disappointed. Gonzalo Ramos was at the door and we instantly felt welcomed without any pressure. He recommended several dishes....mussels and octopus as appetizers both fantastic. Then a local fish dish which was also a real winner. The service was friendly and very... More

For 70 years the vision of the immigrant Basque Ascension Iturria is repeated; the best dishes..., In the best place. With a perfect view of the Harbor, Mariskonea is renewed. Our classic dishes flavored Basque acquired the unique taste that only experts in fish and shellfish, can bring. Those who know Punta del Este, knows the quality of Mariskonea.
