My husband has been coming to Punta del Este for 40 years and I've been coming for 15. In all the years we had both been coming here, 2016 was the first year we saw Mariskonea. So it was a great discovery for us even though it's been around for many years. I'm so happy we found it and ate... More

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

We had a wonderful dinner here during NYE weekend. We had mussels, Brótola and an awesome Apple crumble (with a delicious bottle of Pinot Noir). Our server was very skilled and the dining space had a great vibe. The manager of Mariskonea was also extremely nice and chatted with us about the history of the restaurant for a little bit... More

Yesterday we had the second visit of our vacation at Mariskonea. Although we have been to Punte the last 5 years, this restaurant somehow eluded us. Not anymore! Both visits we were treated like "regulars". Service was professional and excellent. Food quality was extremely high. Fish and seafood were fresh and tasty. We had the calamares, different fishes, clams and... More

Nice restaurant located at the port of Punta del Este. Attended by its owners Gabriela and Gonzalo. Do not forget to order the traditional seafood paella. Reasonable prices. I will come back!

We just frequented this restaurant last night and OH, what a treat! Instead of so many of the "white table" rivals that pepper the area- this locale not only has a fabulous location (fabulous views of the port) but also has amazing food and world class service, to boot. As a starter, we shared a "pulpo a la feria"- which... More

Mariskonea reminds me of the old restaurant owned by the grandfather of the actual owners. The food is excellent as in the old days. Service , ambience, food is the best of the Punta. You should try it and will not regret it. Of course, you will go back to try another of their special dishes! .

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.
