We stopped here specifically for a tasting of the Tannat wines that are a speciality of Uruguay. After explaining our desires to the staff we were presented with tastings of four tannat wines or tannat blends plus a platter of snacks that we found delicious. The wines ran the gamut and we ended by selecting two bottles to take with... More

Nice restaurant with great food that has a little bistro feel and is off of the tourist trap streets, great wine selection and the nicest people/staf we've met so far in Montevideo. You can even buy some wine to take with you while you are there! Check out the old "in wall" refrigerator behind the bar, it's quite something if... More

Went for lunch after walking around Plaza Independencia and we were not disappointed. The food was very good, service attentive and was a nice small, quiet place off the main street in Ciudad Viejo. Very reasonable prices for high quality food!

Very nice place in the old city. There is a small adega with a lot of uruguain wines and people to explain about it. The food is good and the price is fare. There are three choices of course on the menu and some choices out of this menu. The empanaditas are delicious.

The place has a big choice of Uruguayan wines. We`ve had an excellent one, Proprium Cabernet Sauvignon, from Bodega Filgueira. The menu has a few choices, but they are good. Fare prices.

A showcase for good Uruguyan food as well as wines and only a couple of hundred metres from Plaza Independencia. A big thank you to tripadvisor and previous reviewers for commenting on this place as we would never have found it and it has been a highlight of our time in Montevideo. It was a quiet evening so we had... More
