Very tasty food on a relaxed setting overseeing the ocean. The service was friendly, fast and overall effectove. It is a long way from Pta del este( about 1 hr), but worth the trip.

Passing Manantiales. on a dirt road, this restaurant is a lovely place, with delicious food. i had the beet salad with goat cheese as a starter - really filling. Perhaps that´s why my ojo de bife didnt go down so well. Thr eggplant lasagna is also a must. Mostly locals, few foreigners.

The famous chef that also has a place in Punta, Buenos Aires and soon in Rio has this small place in Jose Ignacio, with few, simple and but very well designed and prepared dishes.He is always there to look after the kitchen and also sells home made bread and pastries, as other goodies

La Huerta is a nice bistro, located on rather hidden and poorly lit road. However, once you arrive ate the restaurant you can smell the huerta and you are greeted to a friendly atmosphere. The menu is short. Not many options here! The food is tasty and honest.

Went with friends and family and had a very nice dinner! Excellent the lamb baked in its juice, the fresh salad form the orchard, and the pasta dishes. The fish was not good, too dry to my taste. Warm reception by the staff, they knew the menu well, although our waiter was not very savvy, she asked her colleagues when... More
