The restaurant is what one would consider at the high end of restaurants in MVD, so it is not cheap.
In UY the best restaurants serve some kind of grill. Don't go in expecting cuisine because it doesn't exist. The lamb chops are always a safe bet. the past is not because it is never al diente.
Go there to enjoy the setting and the history!!

Location really nice near the city theatre. The space is well designed and the service very warm. Unfortunately the food was under my expectations. The dishes were well presented but the the food did not justify the price paid.

This restaurant is placed in one of the wings of the famous Teatro Solís. The decoration is rather classic, and ofter offers some theatrical performances inside. Price is according with the quality of the food, and the ambience is great. A good choice,

We were there in a big group. We were set in a separate room. When we arrived there were already glasses of Cava served and no need to say that the drink was almost hot.
The appetizer was OK but not enough, It took a long time to be served the main course and it was cold. Can you imagine cold potato served?? Probalbly it was already done for more than an hour before served. I was disappointed as well as the whole group. Not recomended

The restaurant is in the Solis Theater, which already gives it a special charm. In reality, there are three different environments, the Salón Rouge (the best), the Chivas and the Prelude. The ambience of the Salón Rouge is quite luxurious and the food excellent. There are interesting choices of starters (in the form of tastings); risottos, pastas and meats. The dry aged “ancho” steak is immense (400 g.) - and very tasty (comes with a kind of Moroccan sweet potato “pastilla”). The desserts are special (the most spectacular is Telón de Chocolate, which combines a stuffed chocolate egg, whose top is melted by the waiter with a hot syrup ... of chocolate!). The wine list is huge and well composed; there are reasonably priced options (the restaurant has a sommelier). The service is professional. Undoubtedly, it is one of the best restaurants in Montevideo.
