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.

my favorite restaurant in Montevideo. Everything they make on that big red-hot grill you can order, it's all delicious. Fantastic cook. One of the best sommeliers I met in Montevideo with a wine for every purse, that's what makes wine drinking there a pleasure. You don't have to go for the bottle directly, the have very good open bottle wines.... More

This is one of my favourite place when I go to Montevideo. I usually go for lunch, but sometimes I drop by for dinner. All the food is excellent. The pasta is home made, the fishes are fresh and the meat is of excellent quality. It also have a reasonable variety of wines to choose. The service is also excellent.... More

Description
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.
