A gourmet restaurant with a varied menu of outstanding cuisine served artistically in a well-designed and comfortable setting. We stayed at the hotel for three nights and ate every delicious dinner at this venue. The staff couldn’t of been friendlier or more helpful. The prices...were very reasonable by comparison to USA big city restaurants of similar top quality.More

We came here because it was #1 in PDE. Best decision as it did not disappoint. We were presented with a fixed menu for Valentine’s Day so no decisions required...Aldo made us feel nice and cozy in an intimate setting. The Peruvian chef prepared a...tasty arugula, mango, fig and goat cheese salad. Then an amazing quinoa risotto with cheese chips (I need to try to make this at home) with a perfectly cooked steak. Topped with a lava “marbre” which was succulent. Definitely recommend.More

I’m visiting Uruguay for work and had just a few days to enjoy Punta Del Este. My first stop was the top rated restaurant in town, and it lived up to its rating: Aldo’s service was friendly and meticulous, the menu was varied with delicious...options for the meat and seafood lovers alike, they were able to flex for my dietary restrictions, and the intimate setting was lovely with candles and light music to allow for conversation. The langostinos/ shrimp were delicious to start, and the salmon was a light main. Try the Uruguayan Albariño wine and Milhojas with coconut cream for dessert! I will definitely return for their squid and lamb dishes!More

So this restaurant is on "Gourmet Row" in Punta del Esta. Seriously, restaurant after restaurant, but we wanted to get to Life Bistro in the small boutique hotel of AWA. Charming and intimate. I had my favorite dinner, fish of the day. When you are...near the ocean, it can't get any better. But I have to say that the Bread Basket was the star of the dinner. I know...but it was outstanding. It was all good. Good Mendocino wines capped off a delightful meal.More

We had dinner during the week in January, 2020. For starters we tasted the langostinos and ceviche peruano (if you like spices, you’re going to like it!), both amazing and very tasty. For main courses we had the tagliolini with shrimps and scallops and brotola...puff style. Both fantastic! Our first place to eat in Punta Del Este! Followed by I’marangatú. Excellent service. Wine? Ask for Garzón tinto or rose. Both great choices!More

The spaghetti with grilled shrimp and scallops was incredible. Another excellent choice was the mushroom risotto. Service was impeccable. It is definitely a place worth going.

I traveled to Uruguay as part of a mildstone birthday celebration. Several women in my group were celebrating various accomplishments from work anniversaries to engagements. We were staying at Awa and we had our farewell diner at Life Bistro. It was very nice. I was...waiting to sit in the dining space with the beautiful flowing decor and large pillows during my entire stay, so it was a nice end. To me the big plus to Life Bistro is it offers something other than beef, which after many days in Argentina and Uruguay it was a welcomed change for my colon. They have a good wine selection. We were staying in the hotel so we enjoyed breakfast/brunch every day. I appreciated that you could have your eggs made fresh and they offered lattes. Oh yes. It was also nice to have some English speaking staff for someone who only knows basic Spanish. The staff was very friendly and accomodating.More

The restaurant is beautiful and romantic in the patio. The food is a good break from the grilled meat we normally have and very delicious. We had the Peruvian ceviche and was excellent! Highly recommended.

The restaurant, although its quotation on trip advisor, was the whole evening empty. The setting is nice but this was the only thing which was positive. In despite of its high quotation the ceviche was too sour, the risotto was mediocre and the chicken rolls...with quinoa was nothing special. Wine was over priced but I must recognise that the service was friendly and professional. To make a long story short way too expensive for what it is and certainly ‘over quoted’ !More
