The location is beautiful, the venue charming, comfortable and cozy, the wide range of choices are all delicately and creatively prepared and delivered, the young attendants are most attentive and friendly - in other words, worth every penny and every hundred bucks one pays

It took quite a while to get there from the cruise harbor, but it was well worth the effort. The place is nested in-midst some beautiful beaches. I was more than surprised by the caliber of people. Beautiful from beginning to end. The staff is...More

What a place. Seems manic on arrival BUT always in control. 2 visits. Both superb. Staff everywhere so amazing service. Surrounded by very, very sophisticated South American’s. Very very chic. If only the Brits had the same food appreciation and interest.

Beautiful, breezy iconic of Uruguay. Be sure to reserve as soon as you possibly can, since they don't have a waiting list. Get the grilled fish, and whatever you do, do NOT miss the dulce de leche volcano. The sushi is ok but forgettable. Try...More

La Huella is a classic in Jose Ignacio. There is little to add to the previous reviews. The food is great, especially the seafood (try the local almejas). The caipirinhas (caipis) are excellent. Try both the lime and also the maracuya ones. Last, La Huella...More

Hi weekends are always open. However since they work most during summer time, I would give them a call first. The walk on the beach is amazing all year around. ;-))))
