Description: Es el mismo restaurant que está en Montevideo Uruguay en la zona de Punta Carretas.
Reviewed 25 January 2017

The hotel is very nice, spacious, comfortable, quiet, and set in wonderful countryside surroundings. I would only recommend it for overnight stays, however, as there doesn't seem to be a real restaurant within miles.

Don't be fooled by the hotel's restaurant. It's anything but. The cook hasn't heard of salt, pepper, herbs, or spices when [over]cooking meat. Forget about anything fancy such as pepper sauce, a tiny slice of butter to slightly moisten that poor thing they call fillet of beef, or even rock salt to enhance whatever flavour it may have. Uruguay's on the Atlantic, for crying out loud. All they have to do is collect and sell the stuff. Nope.

Before wasting time peering over the menu, first ask the waitress to list all the dishes they cannot serve that day. We're talking mid-week and peak of the tourist season (Jan/Feb) and they're out of most interesting items. Imagine the rest of the year.

Oh and when the waitress says a starter is not available, do not, I repeat, do not say anything like "ok then, bring me something similar". Because she may bring you the main course without a starter. Apparently "nothing" counts as "something similar" in her mind. No comment.

Normally when a customer complains about the poor quality of a meal, at least in the civilized world, those in charge try showing signs of apology, remorse, something to the effect that they feel sorry for having failed so miserably in the essence of their trade. Well here, to add insult to injury, when you make suggestions for improvement, you get insulted. Yes, literally insulted.

I nicely offered the owner of the restaurant to spend an hour a day during my stay, free of charge to him, showing his cook the basics. He told me off and in a manner so rude that, had I not been warned at the hotel reception he's actually from Spain, I would've been shocked by his manners. Yes, it's that bad. Beneath any standard that would've benefited from 50.000 years of human evolution.

We got a table outside in a sunny day for lunch. The staff were attentive and the meat was sensational

It was a great ecperience since you can have an excellent meal in an area of the country where you won't fine much of these. The decoration and music is accordingly good and the service is both excellent in the tales and in the ealboration of food and drinks.

Very Nice place with vivid and international ambiance. Delicious local kitchen but definitely more expensive than other meat restaurants with comparable kitchen.
