Since it was our first day in Montevideo we had to get chivitos, they were so flavorful and delicious! They even brought a tasty little pizza and some bread with various sauces, like chimichurri, to the table while we waited for our food!

Great dinner out. The food was tasty and the wine was great. Service fast and efficient and the price was not over the top. Even though the you man was checking his cell phone frequently it did not delay the service offered.

Autentic Uruguayan food, second to none wine cellar with "hard to find" Uruguayan wines. Reasonably priced, you can enjoy the best of the Uruguayan barbacue, but also very good menu range, from pasta to fish and vegetarian options.
